Unhandled exception error

Recommended Posts

I guess some of you guys have experienced this. It happens mainly when I start P3D 4 but occurs with other apps , FSX steam seems to work OK .

The history of the problem started with me running PMDG Operations center 2, which said there was an update. When I tried to install the update, it wiped out Operations Center 2, and when I tried to find it

I messed up some files. I was able to do a restore to 2 days back and most things work partially. The desktop is screwed up partially. I am pretty computer literate but don"t want to get expensive help if

I can fix it myself. Any help appreciated

If your desktop is boogered-up, you clearly have issues that go beyond just the sim.

If you keep backups, restoring a full backup made with a working configuration would be the least troublesome way to get back in operation.  I do a full system backup every month or so, and I keep a log of product installs and config changes so that I know what's been changed since the last backup.  It's saved me from a full rebuild many times.

Thanks for your reply Bob. After further attempts at trouble shooting, I've found that Microsoft.net framework is also screwed up and also Java. I could not repair either of them with the relevant software. Also, with Windows 10, .net framework cannot be uninstalled. I ended up calling in Geek squad. They worked on it for about six hours. and ended up reinstalling Windows 10 . i.e. option retaining files. That did not fix it. I may have no alternative but to do a complete reinstall of Windows 10 including all files, which of course means reinstalling all apps.

I guess I should do as you do and in the future as following good housekeeping, do a system backup each month.

What would you recommend I do in the way of backing up my apps if possible. I have lots of PMDG  apps P3Dv4 and many other flight simulator apps , also a couple of external drives. Any help appreciated
