Falcon 50 Payload Manager doesn't work

Recommended Posts

Hi Community,

have just qesterday bought this nice AC and did the first flight with it. LOVE IT. But currently I'm struggling with the Payload Manger. It simply doesn't work. I can open the window but cannot anything within the window.

During installation I've got a messaage

Prepar3D v4 found on this machine!!
XMLTools64.dll successfully installed in P3D v4 main folder !!
DLL.XML not found !!. Creating copy...
Cannot create DLL.XML - Folder not found !!

-Wrong User or folder corrupted. DLL.XML was not created.
 What did I wrong, Thx for you support.

The second instruction is for you.

==================================================

 

 

PAYLOAD MANAGER NOT FINDING XMLTOOLS64 FOR P3D V4"

How to update the registry for P3D so the location can be found by the installer.

1. Type regedit in the start search box.

2. Locate......... HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Lockheed Martin Prepar3D V4

3. Right click "AppPath" and select modify then update the location like this example here..........C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\

4. Now run the exe and it will say XMLTOOLS64 entry found.

 

 

PAYLOAD MANAGER NOT FINDING DLL.XML FOR P3D V4"

How to create a "DLL.XML" file.

1.  Locate......... (C:) Users You AppData Roaming Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v4

2.  Create a notepad. Name it DLL. Open  and insert  this info.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="WINDOWS-1252"?>

<SimBase.Document version="1,0" Type="Launch">

<Descr>Launch</Descr>

<Filename>dll.xml</Filename>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad>

</SimBase.Document>

3. Click file save as and under file name enter “DLL.xml” and under Save as type choose “All Files”. Now click save. Done!

Tahnk you for the response,

I havenÄ't mentioned that before, that I read this instruction but was confused, as I do have already a dll.xml file in the given location. Content of this file is.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="WINDOWS-1252"?>

-<SimBase.Document version="1,0" Type="Launch">

<Descr>Launch</Descr>

<Filename>dll.xml</Filename>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad>


-<Launch.Addon>

<Name>FSCaptain</Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>

<Path>FSCaptain\bin\FSCaptain.dll</Path>

</Launch.Addon>


-<Launch.Addon>

<Name>FSCAI</Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>

<Path>FSCaptain\bin\FSCAI.dll</Path>

</Launch.Addon>


-<Launch.Addon>

<Name>Multi Crew Experience</Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>

<Path>fsInsider64.dll</Path>

</Launch.Addon>


-<Launch.Addon>

<Name>FSUIPC 5</Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<Path>Modules\FSUIPC5.dll</Path>

</Launch.Addon>


-<Launch.Addon>

<Name>as_connect</Name>

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

<Path>as_srv\as_connect_64.dll</Path>

</Launch.Addon>

</SimBase.Document>

 

Pls. advise how to proceed further.

When i look at your code i see a symbol that should not be there.

Each

-<Launch.Addon>

launch i see a "-" dash.

Try no dash in front of each one.

<Launch.Addon>

 

======================

If that fails even tho it should not fail. Make a backup and then follow my instruction to the tee without your info. And try it.

if you still have issues follow the first set of instructions and make sure the registry is correct.

This is now a correct copy of the existing dll.xml (I used a wrong program to open it (not notepad), and this showed the missleading "-")

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">
  <Descr>Launch</Descr>
  <Filename>dll.xml</Filename>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>
  <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>FSCaptain</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Path>FSCaptain\bin\FSCaptain.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>FSCAI</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Path>FSCaptain\bin\FSCAI.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>Multi Crew Experience</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Path>fsInsider64.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>FSUIPC 5</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>Modules\FSUIPC5.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>as_connect</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>as_srv\as_connect_64.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>
</SimBase.Document>

 

Secondly i backed up the original dll.xml, created a new one with the given content - unfortunate no success, and finally i checked the regestry and everythings correct - but still not working. I can click on the light, medium or heavy fuel - nothing happens, same with the passangers.

Pls. advise if you have some more ideas what's going wrong.

I have the following entry in my dll.xml :-

 <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>XMLTools64</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Path>XMLTools64.dll</Path>
    <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName>
    <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName>
  </Launch.Addon>

I downloaded the installer from FSDeveloper

Adding the entry by hand is the last resort but works. I now have this as part of our instruction as a last resort. You have something that prevents the folder from being found. Thats why it can't find the DLL. I wish i knew had to tell users how to fix that issue.

I too am having the same issue, but with FSX SP2, not Prepar3D. Is there a fix for this as well. I am able to enter manually into my DLL.XML file if necessary.

Thanks in advance

What error messages are you getting? Your dll.xml file should have an entry like this:

 <Launch.Addon>
        <Name>XMLTools</Name>
        <Disabled>False</Disabled>
        <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
        <Path>XMLTools.dll</Path>
        <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName>
        <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName>
    </Launch.Addon>

It just occurred to me to ask if you have tried running the Payload Manager/XML tools installer?  On your desk top you should have a folder called FLYSIMWARE FALCON 50 INFO.  Inside there is a folder called PAYLOAD_MANAGER_INSTALLATION, inside that there is a folder called FSX_INSTALLER and inside that folder XMLTools_20 Installer.exe. Running this program should update your dll.xml file as outlined above.

Thanks Ark for the reply, when I launch Payload Manager for FSX installer, it replies with "FSX found, press button to install", then it replies "Can not find the file for this user, recommend manual search and update". As I'm running Window 10 Pro 64b, the location is here > C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\dll.xml. Not really sure why Flysimware hasn't caught this.

Not sure what you mean by " Not really sure why Flysimware hasn't caught this. "  It seems to work OK for most Win10 Pro users, me included. Also note the FSW post above on 3 Feb. So what the actual problem is seems to be a bit of a mystery at this point.  In an case, try installing the necessary code in the dll.xml file as outlined above.  Hopefully that will get things working.
