Custom Gauge "unable to load some... software"

Recommended Posts

I have a custom gauge I have been working on for the last couple of months. It was loading properly and doing most of what we wanted until yesterday. We modified some of the code for our A429 card and GPS interfaces (as well as our shared memory functions). Now we get "Flight Simulator was unable to load some aircraft or software. You can continue using Flight Simulator but this aircraft or software will be disabled."A previous post to AVSim indicated that this is usually caused by a dependent DLL missing from the FS Modules directory. We have a driver utility that we run under VC++ to debug. I used VC++ to generate a dependency file and to export the project makefile. Neither shows any DLL dependencies.Anyone have any ideas on how I can debug this?Thank you.

>Anyone have any ideas on how I can debug this?I would suggest running "Dependency Walker" on the gauge .dll to verify your findings:http://www.dependencywalker.com/I have found that quite often there are "hidden dependencies" that aren't revealed by the IDE's report... ;(
