  1. check to see if you have this document in "username/documents" exe.xml.rtf <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>exe.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_btstrp_config_manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp_config_manager.exe</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document>   <Launch.Addon> <Name>Saitek Panel(s) Plugin for FSX</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Saitek\ProFlight FSX Plugin\SaiFlightSimX.exe</Path> <CommandLine>-run</CommandLine> </Launch.Addon>   <Launch.Addon> <Name>Saitek Panel(s) Plugin for FSX</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Saitek\Pro Flight Panels\SaiPanels.exe</Path> <CommandLine>-run</CommandLine> </Launch.Addon>   </SimBase.Document>  
  2. This is a significant deficiency for such a nice piece of hardware. I too do not have a clue how to program it.
  3. I just got an email from Honeycomb with a tracking number. The number relates that my shipment is in transit and on location at FedEx in Bloomington, CA. I should receive it on 10/9/2019. Seems to be a safe bet.
  4. My kernel based CTD's were due to a double Fly Tampa Libraries entry in my scenery files. I installed a new airport and also mistakenly installed another Libraries file. Check your scenery files for a similar situation.
  5. Safedock system does not recognize Qualitywings Avro aircraft and gives a "Fail" signal and then a "Stop" signal. It works OK with my Aerosoft A320's and Maddog MD80's.
  6. If you are on the ground at a gate and you want to know which direction you are facing, simply press "shift+z" and look at the text at the upper left of your monitor screen. One of the text items will be the direction (0-360) degrees.
  7. As a dedicated simmer I have all the mentioned aircraft listed above. The one I would highly recommend for someone just getting into Airliner flying is the Qualitywings Avro/RJ aircraft. At 20$ it is a bargain. It is quite immersive but not like the FSLabs, Q400, or even the Aerosoft A320's and PMDG 737's. It is a regional aircraft so you can fly into many of the smaller airports in Europe. When I just have enough time to fly a 2 hour flight start to finish, I always use the Avro. It is especially nice if you want to fly on Vatsim or IVAO because you can be up and running quickly without all the preflight cockpit setup needed in the others. Yes, there are no "failure" modes, but does a newbie really need them? Just my 2 cents... PS terrific on Frame rates
  8. Have you tried "System Restore"? This has worked for me in the past. Just restore back to a date when every thing was working correctly.
  9. Use the System File Checker to look for corrupt/missing files (AKA - SFC \scannow) If you are unfamiliar with the procedures to scan your system, please go to the following link for procedures depending on your Windows version. Basically, you will use the Windows Search and search for ‘Run’, look up in the menu and open up your ‘Run’ command in elevated mode (right click and open with Administrator Rights). You then enter SFC \scannow and the press the enter key. This program will then scan your system for corrupted or missing files and replace them if any are found. You might try this to fix windows. This is from the Avsim Crash to Desktop Guide. When I ran it on my system it located a massive amount of files that needed to be corrected, etc. It also freed up about 20 GB of space on my hard drive. No new issues were encountered. It replaces files from a "hidden" cache of original Windows files on your hard drive. Good luck https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929833/use-the-system-file-checker-tool-to-repair-missing-or-corrupted-system
  10. I have both working in v4.1 and they are both self centering.
  11. That would really be a heavy load to bear in fps. I would only try it with P3D v4.1 which is 64 bit. Any thing else would probable give you a CTD pretty quick.
  12. In discussing my flight simming with a friend who is a real 777 pilot, I was surprised when he asked me if I trim the aircraft during flight. I said I only trim for takeoff, and the aircraft auto pilot does all the trimming for me. He then said that in his real cockpit, he hand flies the aircraft all the way up to Top of Climb, manually using power and trim, and only then does he connect the auto pilot. He does the exact opposite upon reaching Top of Descent, including hand flying the approach. I asked him why he does this. He said his route is Los Angeles to Sydney Australia, and because it is so long, he maxes out his allowable flying hours with only two round trips per month. How many of us simmers hand fly our departures and arrivals without use of the autopilot? Doing that would make flying the tubes much more like a GA aircraft in immersion and satisfaction.
  13. I recently had a MSVCR120.dll problem though not the same type as yours. I solved my problem by going to Control Panel/Programs/ Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x86). Double click on the program and select repair (or just run it... if you don't have it installed, then get it and install it. I have seven versions of this program. Only after repairing this one did my .dll problem get solved. Good luck
  14. A main requirement of FSX is the Microsoft Visual C++2013 Redistributable (86). Go into Control panel and make sure you have it installed. If it is there, run it and highlight "repair". This did the trick for me after spending hours and hours trying to fix my problem. Best wishes.
  15. DannyR, that is a great suggestion. But I have the same problem with my Saitek controls and I still would like to know what causes the settings to change.
