Prepar3D.exe has stopped working?

Recommended Posts

Everything works okay but every time I exit P3Dv4.5 (30-40 seconds later), the above box pops up. There is no problem that I can find in the HTML files that show some syntax problem. I seem to remember the same thing from FSX but too long ago for my old brain to recollect.

Can someone tell me what might be the cause? And the fix?

Thanks for help

Please download AppCrashView and run it.  It will automatically pull up your CTDs and you can select the latest CTD for P3D.  Click (or right click) on the Prepar3d CTD and it will provide information that you can copy and paste here in the forum.

Additionally, AVSIM has a CTD Guide that is FANTASTIC, and once you know what the issue is (from AppCrashView) you and the people here can start to figure things out.

Thanks Dave, I will get on it this morning. However...is it a CTD? I had already checked the "YES" to quitting P3D, sim closed (or so I thought) and after 20-30 seconds the "problem" popup. Except for that prompt everything seems normal.

It happens every time I exit P3D and is quite annoying.  Hope AppCrashView will find the flaw.

Hi Neal,

It could be down to the Windows 7 / GSX combination. If so, then it’s a known issue and, sadly, will never be fixed now. The author, Umberto, has made that very clear as Windows 7 is no longer supported by FSDT.

It’s more of an irritation than indicative of anything serious. As an experiment try disabling GSX before a P3D session, start P3D and then exit.

Regards,

Mike

I don't see where OP said he was running on Windows 7, but I have an attention deficiency.

Application stops running is the definition for an application hang, and the AppCrashView will simply provide AppHang as the faulting module.  My first guess is that P3D is waiting for one of the child modules (aka addons) to finish closing down.  As Mike suggested this could be bglmanx64.dll related to GSX but I've not seen this problem reported recently so I'd start looking at other addons.

Thank you all for input. I am running Win7 Ultimate and do have GSX

AppCrashView just has a "No crashes" entry or  (crashes=0)..forgot  exact phrase.

As Mike says...."an irritation" 

One of these days I must bite the bullet and move to Win10 😧, have it on two laptops and much prefer good old Win7.

Thanks again
