FSX-SE freeze and CTD on loading saved flight.

Recommended Posts

Long time listener, first time caller here.

I am running FSX-SE on Windows 10 using AS16 and Orbx scenery (North Island and South Island, NZ) as well as a handful if addon aircraft and Orbx Traffic.

I have a saved flight which I have been chipping away at for some time which, in it's current state, is the Just Flight De Havilland Devon, cold and dark on the apron at Dunedin Airport.

On completion of loading this particular flight, after about two seconds, I get the blue spinning circle and a freeze for about 20 seconds before getting the AS16 "Cannot control ambient weather parameters..." error message and then the game closes to desktop.

This only seems to happen on this particular saved flight. I can load the same aircraft for a free flight on the ground at Dunedin with no issues.

I have tried deleting/renaming fsx.cfg, scenery.ctg and running with AS16 uninstalled however still seem to experiencing the same problem.

Has anyone experienced anything similar or have any suggestions re a fix?

Any feedback appreciated, cheers.

Welcome to the AVSIM forums! :happy:  Sorry it's not on a brighter note because of your CTD (Crash to desktop).  Have you looked in your computer's Events Viewer for a faulting module related to FSX?  If you look over to the right side of your screen, there is an AVSIM CTD Guide under Tom's picture that should get you into the ballpark as to the problem.

One curious question....Is this "saved flight" also your "Default Flight"?

Thanks mate, appreciate your response. Haven't had any joy so far. Excuse my ignorance, but where would I look in the event viewer to find the specific faulting module? Negative, not set as default flight.

Well, let's see how far this explanation flies!

Control Panel-> Administrative Tools-> Event Viewer, select Custom Views-> Administrative Events.
One of the listed events will be for your CTD. The "Faulting Module" should point to the problem area.

Tell us what the Faulting Module is! That will point us in the direction of the proper error, aiding in troubleshooting.


General Tab:
Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.61637.0, time stamp: 0x46fadb14
Faulting module name: This is what we need to know!
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0000ee3a
Faulting process id: 0x748
Faulting application start time: 0x01ce0253dc4b69d4
Faulting application path: R:\FSX\fsx.exe
Faulting module path: R:\FSX\window.dll
Report Id: 9caf77b4-6e50-11e2-8570-3085a99825d1

If there is not one listed:
Faulting module name: unknown, version:, time stamp: 0x00000000,
you will need to do as previously noted

No Faulting Module? ->
Remove all of the add-ons, and test the sim. If it works OK, then reinstall them one at a time and test.
Be sure to test each thoroughly before moving on to the next
