757/777 Manal Reinstall

Recommended Posts

After upgrading pc components and loosing the 757 and 777 installations due to an error on my part, I've managed to get the 757, less the load editor, up and running. However, the PSS-777.gau causes FS to crash to a black screen. And after adding the correct information to the Windows registry, I'm getting a license key mismatch error with the 777 load editor.The fonts are OK, voronoi.dat is in the FS9.1 root folder, and the PSS information is in the proper folders wihin FS.Anyone have ideas about getting the 777 properly reinstalled? If not, guess I'm off to Just Flight. . .Jim Harnes

Jim,I can look at the load editors later but the gauge file should not cause a crash just because yiu are doing a manual install. Could it have been corrupted somehow - what is its size and dates?John R

Hi Jim,That's ok; sorry but I thought it was worth checking. I've manually installed several times without a crash so I guess there must be a conflict somewhere. I have just tried no/old FSUIPC; no/wrong gau file without a crash. Odd as well if the 757 goes in ok.Can you say exactly where and how it crashes. There might be a clue.RegardsJohn

Thought the gau file was OK. Crash occurs just after the sim loads but before any of the 2D panel gauges display. FS displays a black screen and stops responding. Task manager is required to exit FS.I had a similar experience when the 757 was released. Only solution was a 777 uninstall and reinstall using the PSS installer. However, I don't think the original scenario would migrate to a new install of Windows, FS, etc on a freshly formatted hd.Thanks for your assistance, John :).Jim HarnesEDIT: Just found the problem - panel.cfg was pointing to a custom 2d panel containing some gauges which did not migrate with the manual reinstall. Sorry for the senior moment.Now to see if all else is OK.

Hi John, I have sorted my problem with the CTD, so I thought I was OK to get the T7 flying again; however when I tried to set the B772 Aircraft Load.cfg I got the following message = "License Key not found The Load Editor must be properly installed" Would the License Key be in my Registry?Ken

Sorry Ken; I was away for a while.Anyway, it confirms for people that as long as you are backed up, you can re-install with all the facilities.John R

Hi Jim,My License Key was not in my Registry. It's amazing how a little thing like that can cause so much trouble.Ken

Run regedit and search for this key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator9.0 See if you have an entry called: VersionCheck.Value of that key is the long hexadecimal code that you will find in the aircraft.cfg file of a licensed 777. You should be able to add the info manually if it isn't there. And that should fix the T7 loadedit problem.Credit for this clear explanation goes to Adam Gaweda, former PSS Beta team.Note: if you are not familiar with editing the Windows registery, learn how or ask. Otherwise you may have a dead pc. Jim Harnes
