Logbook.bin Missing

Recommended Posts

Good Evening, 

As stated above, I'm missing my logbook.bin file which seems to be killing my FSX on startup. Any solutions as to a fix? A reinstall is not really an option as that would be around 2 weeks worth of sim time in my current circumstance. 

 

Kind regards

A missing or deleted logbook.bin should not matter.  When starting FSX, a new one should be built.  Are you looking in the right place for it?  My documents/Flight Simulator X Files folder.

At startup, any module being loaded by the dll.xml is being loaded.  If any are missing, corrupted, or not up-to-date, FSX may crash.

Thanks both for the replies. Ironically, it suddenly worked with a new cfg build.

No I wasn't. Someone else pointed me at the same directory as the cfg file. I completely forgot about the My Documents location.

Dll.xml? Is that the file that controls all the prompts on the splash screen?

No.  It's a file inside the same folder as your fsx.cfg.  Add-on developers use it to load modules like ActiveSky, FSUIPC, and the Addon Menu you will see after you load your flight to the airport you are departing.  In the FSX menu you'll see an Addon's menu.  Click on that and you can configure some of them like FSDT airports.

Glad your problem is fixed.  The number one fix for all CTD's and freezes in FSX is rebuilding the fsx.cfg.
