Ultimate Traffic 2 (not Live) PPack Problem

Recommended Posts

Just posting here as a last resort in case someone has had a similar issue. Using the Power Pack for UTII (latest PPack) to create an add-on schedule/airline with P3dv4.1 has been failing at the "writing database" stage. The Power Pack just hangs at 0% after calculating all the various flight plans for the traffic being created. Program is running as an admin and all folders have correct permissions, etc.

I've left this twice overnight to see if it was just slowly running in the background, but no luck. Eventually have to kill the program. 

I've left many questions in the UTII support forum, but that place is a ghost town since Live released and it seems F1 would prefer to pretend UTII no longer exists. Wondering if anyone has run into this one and managed to work around it. Thanks.

SOLVED:

Apparently PPack isn't able to resolve certain tight-turnaround flight plans and hangs on the database generation without throwing any errors. Even if other bgl compilers successfully work with a Flightplans.txt file, it's necessary to use a validation tool like AIFP's to check for warnings even with downloaded schedules from traffic specialty sites. Any legs that prompt warnings or have errors need to be tweaked or deleted. Once AIFP sees no other issues PPack will successfully complete the database.
