Payload manager not working P3D and Lear 4.2 redux

Recommended Posts

I know this is a recurring topic.  I cannot get the payload manager to work with the latest Flysimware lear35.  I try to change the fuel load and nothing.  I try to change the passenger load and nothing.  I am stuck with a Lear with a fully loaded fuel tanks and no passengers or baggage.  This is not a steam purchase and I cannot find a xml.dll file in my P3D install folder.  I do have the xll tools 64 or something to that effect file.  Can anyone help?  I used to fly a Lear35 IRL and this is really annoying when I try to be a little more realistic (we rarely flew with a full load of fuel . . . especially in the main body tank just aft of the cargo storage).  This is the latest install which was just downloaded a couple of days ago.

1. Did the payload manager work with a previous version of the Lear, or is this your initial Lear install?

2. If this is not your initial Lear install, did you delete the old version before installing the new version?

3. The dll.xml file is typically at:

C:\Users\your name\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4.

For a start, open the file with a text editor like Notepad and post the contents here. It should look something like this (varies with your system setup):

<?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>FSUIPC 5</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>C:\P3Dv4\Modules\FSUIPC5.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>
  <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>

  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>as_connect</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>as_srv\as_connect_64.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>
</SimBase.Document>

Yes, it looks almost identical to what you posted.  Here it is:

<?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>XMLTools</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Path>XMLTools.dll</Path>
    <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName>
    <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName>
  </Launch.Addon>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>as_connect</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>as_srv\as_connect_64.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>
</SimBase.Document>

I assume you are using Win10 and P3D v4.5. Given that I think you need to also be using XMLTools64, not just the older 32 bit XMLTools. So in the P3D main directory you should have XMLTools64.dll, and in the dll.xml file you should have XMLTools64 entries. Note this is the difference above between my dll.xml and yours.
