Fuel flow and RadioDME inop cause 32 bits DLL in P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Did I make a mistake when updating/downloading my C172RG Cutlass for Prepar3D v4 ? The FuelFlow and RadioDME gauge are INOP, confirmed by the contenterror.txt :

Some other issue as well with the clock and Radio_KR87. Other C172RG customer can check their contenterror.txt on Prepar3Dv4 to see if you have the same error ?

 

Remark : its hard to know the version, but the .exe (ALC172RGX.exe) installer date is 06/19/2017 (downloaded from Alabeo web site with a new serial).

Some updates. I uninstall the Alabeo C172RG, re-download ALC172RGX.zip (from Alabeo where I bought it) and install it again. This time the file inside the zip named ALC172RGX.exe is dated 07/04/2017.

I don't have the DLL 32 bits error in the ErrorContent.txt but still these one :

The fuel flow is still inoperative :

Not to mention thousand of "[error.5] error=Payload station indexes should be between 1 - Number of Stations" which is in a middle of discussion between Lockheed Martin and Pete Dowson (FSUIPC author) : http://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6314&t=125549

Compared with my FSX installation I noticed that in P3D v4 the GAUGE_172_DME wasn't installed in the root gauges folder of P3d

Hi All,

Having the same problem with gauges inop in prepar3d v4,  also tried to install into FSX Steam ED (with new installer) and the two gauges were not installed.

Vbazillio, Hi, I noticed on your pic that the radio DME seems to be working, how did you managed that?

Hi ! Can't remembered anything specific or maybe redownloaded the install file (ALC172RGX.zip) from Alabeo (where I bought it) to be sure to have the latest one.

 

By the way I requested few minutes ago a follow-up on the open Alabeo support forum.

Any one with this problem can you please check your gauge folder and see if you have a file called Radio_C172RG.CAB  if so i think thats causing it , there should be a Radio_C172RG.DLL file and not the Radio_C172RG.CAB as thats installed by error i think as i have this problem as well plus also a problem with the PA38 in that the Transponder ident light dosnt work , i uninstalled the PA38 and brought it again via Steam and this time it works and the only change is the correct DLL file has been installed and not the CAB file . So i think this is the problem with the C172 as well .

Thanks

Rich

Same problems in FSX :

DME on/off switch not active

FuelFlow not working

Missing gauges from CAB (FuelFlow and RadioDME).
No radio_C172RG.DLL

ALC172RGX.EXE install program dated 19/06/2017 (European format...)

Yep , the problem is that for some reason the needed Radio_C172RG_DLL file doesn't  get installed causing problems with the DME and Fuel Flow gauge .Im waiting on Alabeo to get back to me on this issue.

The DLL file is not even included in ALC172RGX/ALC172RGX.exe Date 2017-07-04 (the current one directly from Alabeo).

Fuel Flow worked for me, because the DLL was not removed from the previous version.

DME still works without the DLL file, my panel.cfg contains: gauge02=GAUGE_172_DME!Radio_KN62A_DME

Same here. No DME and no fuel flow, both not contained in the Radio_C172 gauge, as specified in the panel.cfg:

gauge01=Radio_C172RG!FuelFlow,                  0,    0,256, 256
gauge02=Radio_C172RG!RadioDME,                  14,  412,399, 82

The Radio_C172RG.cab definitely has none of the too, and so hasn't any other gauge in my gauges folder. I can imagine one or the other works accidentally at some peoples installations if they happen to have those gauges in another plane (which is the only thing I can imagine happened at Alabeo too causing the delivery of a product with 2 non functioning gauges that hit you in the face the first time you try it).

I helped myself with the DME from my PA21T Cheyenne, like that
gauge02=GAUGE_PA31310!Radio_KN62A_DME,                  14,  412,399, 82

but I have no idea for a working FuelFlow gauge and really - a new plane, delivered like that yesterday, with such a problem occuring since July and they did nothing so far? Maybe I am missing something here besides the fact that Alabeo is super lazy? Anybody heard of any solution or action concerning that by Alabeo?

As written in my previous post: my panel.cfg contains: gauge02=GAUGE_172_DME!Radio_KN62A_DME

Can you check the date of ALC172RGX.exe inside the zip? In the version downloadable directly from Alabeo it is 2017-07-04 (July 4th, 2017), extracted size is 153622773 bytes.

I have seen older dates mentioned here, so I assume the DME problem has already been fixed and only the FuelFlow problem is remaining. If you bought from a reseller, please verify what date of the .exe file you get with a current download, maybe they need to receive/publish updated installers.

I had an email back from them and yes there is an error with the Radio_C172RG_DLL file not being installed and they say they will be fixing the installers to include it.... so if you are missing that DLL file in the gauge folder then the fuel flow gauge won't work .

Hello,

I re-activated my support ticket twice before getting a feedback (not an automatic answer...).

And here the answer !

Quote

We are going to check this issue, as we have this aircraft installed on FSX with no problems and this is the first ticket we receive with this issue.
Regards,
Alabeo.

So, please open support requests, so that they can no more say that it is the first ticket with this issue !

Thanks,

Gérard

Sorry the late reply, we had some inconveniences with our support platform.
Which simulator?
Could you send us a screenshot?

Regards,
Alabeo.

May be they lost all previous ticket due to the "inconveniences" ;)
