It may also be that some of the older Aerosoft scenery installations is causing the crash.  I had this once before and it simply required me to remove an entry from one of the .xml files.  I can't remember right now what that was, but I'm sure someone will chime in with the correct info.

Do you have vistamar.dll activated?? This will cause ctds with no error log.

That was it!

 

I think your Aerosoft Rome may be the issue. That was my issue at the time.

 

If the initial solutions don't help, then look for and delete the VMCX_AP.dll file located in:

 

P3D Folder/Vistamare/bin/VMCX_AP.dll

It's a common issue the migration tool should deactivate it. But sometimes you have to do it manually

Can't help on your crash but I highly recommend the autosave feature in FSUIPC as you can load back to where you were shortly before the crash.

How do you set up the autosave feature? Curious. Does it save the game every 5 minutes or so?

Open FSUIPC , go to the Autosave tab and select Autosave 'on', and the frequency of the save.  Done

Auto save is very flexible, frequency is set by the user and can be every 60 seconds or less if you wish. You can also tell it how many to keep so as to prevent your saves files overwheming your system.

 

Auto save is only one of MANY brilliant features in FSUIPC

 

Official page & downloads here (there are free and paid for versions available). I use the paid for version.

Access to documentation here

And a good Froogle video explaining it here (it also works with P3D)

 

Hope this helps

That's a very useful feature... I find my P3D randomly crashing sometimes, especially on very long flights, this would be extremely helpful.

Yup, it's saved me a number of times in the past
