  1. Simbol, You nailed it! There was one leftover from P3Dv4 in my registry. CCleaner missed it and while I am not one to mess with registry entries a whole lot, I did find and deleted the one key under P3Dv4 and.....voila! AILRP installed perfectly and I was able to re-activate it without any problem. P3Dv5 now shows in the top window and I can configure my AI fleet. Thanks again for your support and a great product. Best, Bill
  2. I am unable to reinstall AILRP after changing to P3Dv5 from v4.5. I had to change the drive AILRP was previously installed on for P3Dv4 to a new SSD due to failure of the older drive. I have uninstalled all files (that I can detect) and cleared the registry using CCleaner. When I try to install v1.28 all I get is the spinning blue thingy for a long time and then a couple of .net errors (can't find P3dV4 camera.cfg) and one that says cannot find P3D.exe source. When I finally get to the config page there is nothing in the box up on the top to show which P3D version I want. No V4, No V5...nothing...blank. Obviously something is keeping AILRP from finding my P3Dv5 installation or there is a corrupted file which I can't seem to find and either delete or repair. I have disabled Windows Defender 9 (I am on Win10x64) during download and install so it isn't an anti-virus block. I am at a loss on how to proceed. HELP!! Bill
  3. Same issue for me. I'm unable to import A318/319 .ecs file. Latest version ( v0.3.5 Beta Exp) will not allow me to browse folders. Thanks, Bill
  4. I echo everyone else's responses for this. Mark got me set up in less than 10 minutes and I'm ready to unleash myself into the virtual skies :-) Excellent tool, Mark and I'm definitely +1 for a T7 version! Thanks, Bill
  5. Hi Jim, Well, thousands of Level-D B767 pilots can't be wrong!! Would you please add me to the request list for the FSX version? Thanks very much, Bill
  6. Guys,Just to verify I had no dupes found using Scanafd. I had both UT afcads and some PAI afcads (I believe they were official packs 1 & 2)in the addon scenery folder but no dupes. I guess I will just stick with the UT afcads...and this brings up my next question. How do I reinstall all of the UT afcads without completely losing all of the add-on airlines, liveries, and assignments I had done previously? Can it be done that way or do I need to start from scratch and do a total clean install of UT? I guess I should be asking this in the UT forum, huh?Thanks again for ALL of your suggestions...you guys are the best!Bill
  7. Guys,Thanks for the suggestions...all greatly appreciated!!Here's the latest:Ray - I already had SP2 on XP Home installed. I had previously done a search on the NTDLL error and came across that thread you found as well. I also found something about a problem from MS with the NTDLL.DLL and they suggested I un-install SP2 and then re-install plus all subsequent security updates. I did this without any success with the CTD issues.Word Not Allowed - Ding, Ding, Ding!!! I removed all of the files from the FS9Addon SceneryScenery folder, moved them to another location and then loaded up the flight plan from KMIA and VOILA!!--- no CTD at initial load. I then flew the route using ASV6, RC4, AI traffic at 85%, and successfully got past a point 111 NM S of ORL where I had previously gotten the "black screen" CTD on numerous occasions (if it didn't CTD at KMIA already!).So, it looks like the addon scenery was the problem? And now where does that lead me? A reload of Ultimate Traffic? I also had PAI afcads in the folder that I had previously installed because the UT afcads didn't assign parking(no dupes). Could these have been a problem with the UT AFCAD files? Or am I barking up the wrong tree? Thanks guys for getting me this far....sure hope I can return the favor one day!Bill
  8. Ray,I have also been experiencing many of the same CTDs described above for the last 3-4 weeks with the same message in the event viewer. Sometimes I get an error message saying the program must be restarted and 9 times out of ten that error is "ntdll.dll". Other times (more and more as of late) FS9 just up and quits with a black screen and nothing else.I use FS9 with the last update installed, FSUIPC 3.70(unregistered), ASV6(build 530), RC4.01, Ultimate Traffic, and AI Smooth. I also use FSautostart to load the FS.I've had CTDs with various types of aircraft ranging from default BE58, POSKY 737-700/800, PIC737, as well as others. I have CTDs at different locations in the USA however when I try to place an aircraft at KMIA it normally crashes while attempting to load or immediately after.I have tried starting without using FSautostart....CTDI have tried without ASV6....CTDI have tried without Ultimate traffic (traffic slider set at 0)..CTDI have no add-on sceneries installed. No dupe AFCADS per scanafd.I have run a memory test and registry cleaner...no problems detected.Yep, add me to the list of frustrated users that are really close to un-installing the whole mess! There is nothing worse than spending 30 minutes building a flight plan, getting everything started, doing the cockpit prep, flying for 55 minutes and then......NOTHING!I would sure appreciate any ideas that you or anyone else may have.BillSPECS:P4 2.8, 1024Meg Corsair DDR SDRAM, 80 GB HD(48% remaining), ATI9800 Pro 128Mb, CH yoke and pedals.
  9. Chris,I was having many CTDs recently and finally narrowed it down to something being wrong with the traffic.bgl file. I had added some AI traffic (MidCon VA tfc) and something must have messed up the traffic.bgl file when it re-compiled from Traffic Tools. My fix was to remove the traffic.bgl file and go into Ultimate Traffic and use the compile (option on main page)function to create a new traffic.bgl file. After doing so I have had no further CTD's. One other note, if you haven't checked for duplicate AFCADS you need to check that as well. I use ScanAFD (freeware) and it works very well.Hope this helps.Bill
  10. JD,Absolutely love V4.01! I have had no problems using the program and only "earned" one visit from that beloved FSDO inspector. Great job and congrats to you and the entire RC team. One request, however...any chance of adding "North Central" to the callsign list? Thanks again for your hard work and continued support!Best,Bill"JD at MKG ATCT"
  11. JD,Boy, do I feel stupid! Talk about the proverbial brain lock. Thanks again for the great program and support!!Best,Bill
  12. JD,I'm using 4.01 and have moved the sliders all the way to the right for all voices. The speech rate still seems rather slow...especially in a crowded terminal environment. The ATIS is VERY slow it seems. Any other suggestions?Great product and gain, thanks for all of the support you guys provide.Bill
  13. Jim,Thanks for the advice. I'll give the innards a good dusting! I run both SpyBot and AdaWare on a weekly basis so I think that possibility is pretty much eliminated. This system is only about 10 months old. All components were brand new and the only problem I've had with CTD is FS and as I said before it just started 6 or so weeks ago. Maybe something is going bad or maybe it is just some kind of bad match between software, add-ons, and my config. A lot of maybes, huh?I'm going to take down the OC on the CPU under 3.0 to see if that helps....other than that I guess I may be S.O.L.I'll let you know and thanks to all for any advice!Bill
  14. Jim,Well, just a quick follow-up....I removed the side of the case and loaded up FS along with AS and flew uneventfully for 30 minutes and all of a sudden at FL330...the dreaded CTD! It just flashed back to the desktop without any error message and there I was staring at my desktop where a B727 panel had been just a second before. AS was still running in the background for what it's worth. I checked the temps and all 3 were below 51.3C so I don't think cooling was a factor. Could it have been AS trying to update WX or not? I can't believe this is happening so frequently. Maybe I should try B163 again?I'm using FSUIPC ver 3.44 (unreg) and always clear the weather via FSUIPC before launching AS. This is getting real old!! Bill
  15. Jim,Yes it reboots the entire system. I use ABITEQ to monitor various temps, voltages, fan rpm, etc. I've got the CPU max temp limit set to 85C and the SYS and PWM temps to 70C. I should get a beep if any of these values are reached and have not. I'll take off the side and see if it helps...anything is worth a try at this point! One item I forgot to add that could be a problem although it wasn't until these past 6 weeks is my CPU is OC'd to 3.2 from 2.8. I am running stock voltage to the memory and have not OC'd either memory or the vid card.I'll try the side off for a bit more cooling and if I still get a CTD I'll back off the OC. I just don't know why it would create a problem now when I have been running at 3.2 for 6+ months.Joe...the seasonal CTD was an issue that was supposedly fixed with the 9.1 update. Many people were having problems with CTDs when the FS season switched from fall to winter. I think the jury is still out on whether the update corrected the problem or not.Bill
  16. Jim,I uninstalled AS and flew about 20-25 flights without a CTD and then had one the very next time. I also tried the seasonal change to Winter scenario that had been discussed and flew about 15 flights while forcing Summer season but also had a CTD. I had AS installed at that time as well. The CTDs have occurred during random phases of flight, different parts of the U.S., and with different aircraft/panel configurations.The errors (if I get them...usually I just get a black screen and then a reboot) include sim1.dll, g3d.dll, fs9.exe (hungapp). I have DirectX 9.0C installed and have run DxDiag with no error messages found.The crazy thing about this is that I had so few CTDs up until 6 weeks ago. I haven't added any add-ons except AS and I don't believe I am having any mobo or memory issues. I did a complete un-install of FS9 and reinstalled with the patch just in case there was a corrupted file somewhere. After doing that and reloading UT, FSW and AS the first flight out of the gate went CTD! Talk about frustration levels approaching the red line!!I'm out of ideas....how about anyone else?Thanks for any assistance,Bill
  17. Jim,I've been having the same problem with random CTDs for the past 4-6 weeks as well. I have tried both B147 and B163 with equal amounts of CTDs. You asked the following of the other post:>>Cloud texturesI use FSW 2004 with the HIFPS 32 bit 128k set>Scenery add onsNone...unless you count Ultimate Traffic's addon .bgl file>AFCAD filesNone added except for UT updated ones and have checked for dupes...none found>Bad driversLatest ATI Catalyst WHQL video and Santa Cruz sound card drivers installed>Firewall/Anti-virus situationsNo software firewall, I'm behind a router. Use AVG anti-virus.>Can you tell us why you think it is AS?No, I can't but I had VERY few CTDs (maybe once every 30-40 flights) prior to purchasing AS a couple of months ago and now it's a crap shoot whether I get through a single flight or not. That's the weird thing I guess, because occasionally it works great! I have installed the 9.1 patch and have also tried it by un-installing with equal success (or lack therof).>Hope this helps,Hope this info helps too! I'm beyond frustrated!!BillSystem specs: P4 2.8, 2-512 Corsair XMS, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro128.
