Crash on exit after reinstalling the sim

Recommended Posts

I have a big problem. Due to P3D V3 becoming less and less stable, most likely due to FTX scenery, GSX or a combination of both, I reinstalled everything from the ground up.

The thing is, that the 747 doesn't work anymore. Everytime I close P3D after a flight, I get a message saying the PMDG_747QOTSII_2.dll crashed. It does that also if I don't make a flight. Just loading the aircraft is enought to make it crash on exit.

Suspecting it may have something to do with the hours files and the options cfg that I reused from the last installation, I removed them and tried to reinstall the 747 again. Still, I get the crash on exit.

I have P3D V3.4.22, I'm running Win 7 64bit Ultimate, everything is updated.

What's going on? It did not happen before!

PMDG have acknowledged this in another thread. It will be fixed but it's not in first order of priority because it doesn't prevent the airplane from being used. After all, it only happens while quitting.

Well, it's not saving the hours flown, is it? That cuts down on the fun by quite a lot! I'll wait, but I still don't understand why it's happening now. It didn't do that! 

I still have the original exe of the very first version. I'll give it a go.

Amendment to my previous: the 747 IS updating the hours file some seconds before reporting the dll crash. It means that the crash on exit is indeed no big deal!

Sorry if I came across as rude before. Thanks for your help Walter Meier.

Regards,

Fabrizio

No worries, Fabrizio. I didn't see it as rude, just the result of frustration, which is understandable.

Thanks for the link, but that's not what's happening to me. My situation is different, but it turns out it really isn't a big deal after all. The hours files get updated. Works for me.

Cheers,

Fabrizio
