P#D v4 Going DIrectly to background

Recommended Posts

Hello all;

I'm having an issue with P3D going directly to a background process. I've searched online and have already renamed my .cfg, deleted the 2 wx files, cleared my shader cache, renamed the dll.xml folder. re installed FSUIPC and I'm still unable to get it working properly. The sim was working fine until I had to use the vector AEC tool (KMEM was not at the right elevation). Any ideas would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

What do you mean goes directly to background? Minimizes to task bar? Just disappears from screen but shows in Task Manager? Not enough information. Also some system specs and add-ons would help.

Delete you 'Default' flight through the documents/Prepar3d files

There's probably some error loading the default aircraft.  The same thing happened to me when I set the PMDG737 as my defauls

Good luck @Falconfly

From what I understand most of the people in the know say you should not do that. Have you already started?

I have had the same issue after changing the default flight. Deleting that flight in the documents\prepar3d folder solved it.

I also had this last week & it turned out that the two files SPAD Next had put in the Modules folder for the LVARS was causing it. A registry tweak fixed it however an update is on the way to fix it I believe.

Looks like a number of different things can cause this to happen.

Yea. I'm really quick with the reinstalls lol. Really need to learn to have a bit of patience with troubleshooting. Do let us know if you ever manage to fix the issue. 

Just wish in 2017 we would have a stable simulation platform :)

Strange, since installing Vector my yoke will not control the sim unless the main P3D window is the focus window. If i select any other window outside i have no control anymore from the yoke, whereas previously i had full control. The hats on the yoke still work though!

Common problem this.  Do as willy said.

OK so an update:

I tried everything I saw online and none of it worked. What DID work was a system restore to a time when the sim worked (for me it was 7/16/17). Had it up and running, then today I said, let me get the new EWR (where I work). Installed it and back to the same problem. I restored to7/16 again and the sim ran again.

At the moment I'm flying from MEM to EWR. So far on the flight (PMDG 737-800) I took off from MEM 36C, and at about 1200 ft, airplane became unresponsive. After 45-60 seconds the plane began responding again and acted normal.

Checked the error logs and it says SODE crashed. Reinstalled SODE but it didn't appear to work (I was unable to deactivate the program nor unregister).

 

If anyone has suggestions I'm willing to try, but for now the sim seems VERY fragile to any changes I make... :(

Check to be sure you have the latest SODE update

Yes, I believe so 1.5.3

Also completed the flight. As I approached EWR there were 3 15-24 second pauses in the sim. not sure if that is indicative of anything major.

A 3-5 sec pause is normal when loading airport objects about 5 nm out.  Starting with your first post you said you changed KMEM elevation with Vector?  I don't want to assume you know the Vector AEC tool does not read add-on.xml files which FSDT uses to install KMEM so I'll point you to the Orbx forum for this discussion.  As mentioned, any number of things can cause a failed launch and you didn't mention if that problem is still with you or this thread has taken a different direction.

HI @downscc

1) I installed ORBX Vector

2) I loaded a flight departing KMEM using the PMDG 737800 (latest install)

3) P3D loaded and I discovered I was underground at FSDT KMEM

4) I ran the AEC tool

5) Still under ground at KMEM, so I added KMEM to the disable list

6) Attempted to load P3D and it went directly to a background process

 

I thought I mentioned the problem was only resolved by doing a system restore. I will check the ORBX forums to see if others are having this issue.

 

Thanks!
