FSX will not start hangs and crashes at startup

Recommended Posts

I know that this issue may have come up before. However, when I searched for this particular issue I could not find any information. I have been trying to get this running off and on for about a year now and for some reason it always comes up with the same error. I have created a pastebin of my event viewer which can be found here (http://pastebin.com/sZn84wnj). I have also included a paste of my dxdiag here (http://pastebin.com/UTgehjUT) which includes all system specs and what is installed as far as peripherals and hardware. I have done all steps on page 10 of the CTD guide that has been posted including changing permissions, and running the PC in clean boot mode to make sure that it was nothing that was running that was causing the issue.

Here is a possible solution -

You do not indicate when the crash occurred.  At startup?  If at startup it is probably the fsuipc or something else in the dll.xml that is causing your crashes.  But then, you stated you followed the directions in the AVSIM CTD Guide, page 10 which means you renamed the fsx.cfg to fsx.orig, renamed the dll.xml to dll.orig, and renamed your scenery.cfg to scenery.orig and then restarted FSX, let the fsx.cfg and scenery.cfg rebuild, and returned your installation of FSX back to the default.  If it still did not start up, then FSX is corrupted and you have to uninstall/reinstall it and then reinstall each of the add-ons.  The other stuff helps but not the solution. 

If FSX restarted with a new FSX.cfg and Scenery.cfg, then you can try to return the dll.xml by renaming it from dll.orig to dll.xml, restarting fsx and see if the sim restarts.  If not, then it is one of the modules the dll.xml is trying to load.

Best regards,

Jim

My guess is that you have a problem caused by the FSUIPC module. Try using an older version and test (try for instance v4.962 that was free of trouble). I personally can't understand why a simple module like FSUIPC could crash your sim, but it does!.

And, by the way, depending on your setup, FSUIPC is not necessary for FSX or P3D.

Good luck, Ed.

I actually do not have FSUIPC installed. This is a stock installation and what happens is that the splash screen will show, then at some juncture it states that "Microsoft Flight Simulator has stopped working.  A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." It does not give me any further information, nor does it cause a BSOD where I could utilize Blue Screen viewer.

Ok. Then I recommend to follow the suggestions from Jim Young in the second post. If you have a stock installation with not too many add-ons probably a new fresh install could be a convenient solution.

Cheers, Ed

The fsuipc.dll creates the dll.xml if none is found.  If that is the only utility installed, uninstall it or remove the dll.xml as I recommended above.

Best regards,

Jim
