A2A Garmin 530 crashes P3D

Recommended Posts

I started flying my A2A C 172 Trainer after many months of flying the 737. The problem I had today was the 530 causing P3d to lock up, stating not responding, and screen turns white and locks up. This happens mostly when I click on the 530 to dock it in the panel after making an adjustment. As soon as I mouse click it locks up. I then switched to the 430, by installing it instead, and no problems at all. I can dock and undock the 430 rapidly, and it is solid.  Anything I can check on the 530 to troubleshoot this issue? 

 

P3D Version 3.2

Windows 7

No other problems with P3D.

Not sure exactly which panel file you want. 

I posted the panel _mindstar_530.cfg And below that the main panel cfg for the 172 which current'y has the 430 installed. There is another file called panel_RXP_530.cfg

 

 

 

 panel _mindstar_530.cfg

I formatted your message... as I had asked you to do.  I have also removed your RXP file... it doesn't belong here as it's not our product and has no bearing on the discussion.  I'm certain, if they were still around, they wouldn't want to discuss our product regarding support either.

 

Where are you clicking to close the window?

Is this the current 430/530, or has it been a while since you downloaded it?

I click on the black screen where the display normally is, before I expand it.  

 

Been awhile since I downloaded it, probably over a year. Should I uninstall it, and reinstall a fresh version.

To close the popup, click on the popup's screen... not the VC unit's screen.

 

You most definitely need to download and install the current version.

I did reinstall the latest version again today, as I did a couple of days ago. The first time I installed the latest version I ran into an issue where two out of three of my 172s ceased to work at all.  I lost electrical and engine functions on everything in the aircraft that had  the new 430-530  GPS installed.   When I had this installation  problem the first  time I had to revert to an older version I had on a backup hard drive, by copying and pasting the entire C 172 folder,  to get everything working again, but then I was back to an older GPS version,

 

Today I found out what was causing this A2A configurator install problem with the latest GPS version. The main error was found  in the C172.cfg file.  I just  sent you an email with the solution to the install problem and what I did to fix it.  Everything is working correctly now.
