  1. Another follow-up to earlier posts. After the success, decided to fly the Piper Meridian that I had just purchased from Carenado again and viola the FSX went to CTD when I tried to move some windows to the USB monitor. So back to square one. I like to fly with the main screen uncluttered and move windows like ATC, GPS, PFD, MFD to the other two monitors. I have three monitors and number 2 is main center, number 1 is on left and also connected to graphics card, and number 3 is a USB monitor connected to computer board with an adapter, Something in the Piper software is giving me fits. If you have any idea, give me a shout out. Thanks Lewis Block
  2. WELL, AFTER A FULL DAY OF CONNECTING, DISCONNECTING, DEACTIVATING FILES,RE-ACTIVATING FILES, AND EVERYTHING ELSE I COULD POSSIBLY THINK OF I DISCONNECTED THE USB MONITOR FROM THE COMPUTER FOR A WHILE AND RE-CONNECTED AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW IT WORKED. HOORAY! SORRY FOR THE POSTS THAT WERE OF NO RELEVANCE TO THE PROBLEM. DON'T KNOW WHY THIS HAPPENED, BUT THANKS FOR A PLACE TO VENT AND GET HELP. LEWIS BLOCK
  3. I just tried it again and got the CTD. Went to task manager and it posted sode warning right clicked that and the task manager processes log highlighted sim object display engine.exe. as the culprit. Don't know what to do now. Thanks for any help Lewis Block
  4. I am getting CTD's because of sode process still running but not visible in task manager. I have a three monitor set-up with two monitors being HDMI connection and the other is a USB connected monitor. When I am sitting in parking and getting the aircraft ready to taxi and doing the checklists and other steps, I usually undock the ATC window and move it to the USB monitor and have done this for years. Now when I move it as normal, it results in a CTD. So I have tried that numerous times and still get the same result. So I re-started and undocked and moved the window to a HDMI connected monitor and resulted in no CTD. So after looking at event logs and anything else I can come up with my limited knowledge of doing this kind of investigating, I have found some mention of an execution file called "Simobject Display Engine.exe". This is under as follows: Program files (x86)>12bPilot>sode Simobject Animation module.dll Simobject animation module 64.dll Simobject display engine.exe Sode platform manager.exe I have a notepad co[y of the sode.log that I will try to attach. I notice some mention of Watchdog in the Sode.log. I built my computer myself and am using FSX acceleration with SP1 and SP2. I built this system 4 years ago and have been using it for simulator flying for years w/o any major problems. I have multiple MegaScenery Earth files and a small number of aircraft add-ons. I was flying from KAMA to KABQ last Monday and about halfway through the flight my system went to a CTD. Now in trying to do as I have normally done, the CTD jumps up when I move the undocked ATC window to USB monitor. One note, I had just downloaded the Piper Meridian aircraft from Carenado and was trying to learn the basics on this flight. I go to task manager as the error message tells me to do to stop the sode process which is not present in the task manager box. So at a loss of how to fix my problem. I would greatly appreciate anyone that is really knowledgable to look at this for me and see if they can point me in the right direction. I am sure it is a corrupted line entry in the software somewhere.

  5. I have purchased the Piper PA46 Meridian from Carenado. I want to get the checklist on the knee board and have not figured out the procedure to insert the info. I also have other aircraft add-ons that I want to do the same thing. Sure would appreciate any help on resolving this. Thanks Lewis Block
  6. Another crazy flight. I was flying my A2A Cessna 182 on an IFR flight from KSPS to KDAL to practice overcast breakout at minimums with about 50 miles from KDAL with AP set on heading at 5000 ft. When all of a sudden the stall warning starts sounding and the plane turns upside down, disconnected AP but plane was not responding to any kind of flight controls input. Of course crashed trying everything I knew and no response. So evidently my problem is with FSX and not the Skymaster 337 has I had thought. Now if someone can tell me what to do to resolve this AP problem I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for the help! Lewis
  7. No hypoxia involved. This has happened at 8000 ft or that time at 17000 feet. Just flying along and starts descending without any reason. No loss of airspeed, no loss of rpm, nor any other problem except for the loss of altitude and then turning off AP and then flight controls are unresponsive. I still think it has something to do with FSX itself somewhat like a CTD. Has not happened again so far. Lewblok
  8. Thanks for all of the responses regarding the 337 AP. My original problem of just flying along for 1 to 2 hours and all of a sudden the AP puts nose down and I turn off and then flight controls do not repond has not happened again. After some thought, I think it may have more to do with FSX and not with the 337 program. So will cruise along and see if it happens again, Will put up with the big trim fluctuations and continue flying this fun aircraft. Thanks again! Lewblok
  9. When I turn on the AP, the trim wheel marker rolls all the way to the bottom but the plane does not do a quick nose up. I was wondering if the pitch wheel down on the console on the AP has a neutral position or if it should be neutralized someway before turning on AP. Will try that and play with it. I just did a flight from KAMA to KDAL and everything worked great. When I downloaded the 337, I chose another 337 rather than the one I normally fly. Trying everything to try to get to the problem. Will get back after some more flights. Thanks a Bunch.
  10. Bert, no problem with CG as only pilot and passenger. I was going to delete and re-install but for the life of me cannot remember where I purchased the download so I have no serial number to enter to install. So next time I make a flight with the 337 I will try to get a recording. Boy I sure do like this aircraft. Sure do thank you’ll for helping out. Lewis
  11. Thanks Bert. When I turn on the AP, the trim wheel marker goes all the way to the bottom of the trim slot. It just acts weird. Had no idea icing would show itself on flight sim. Will make that part of routine. FDEev this action makes me think I have a glitch that starts interfering with the control inputs. Will uninstall and re-load. Appreciate the feedback. Have a good day! Lewis
  12. Thanks for the replies. The mixture is set in the green and adjusted periodically. Airspeed holding constant with no problem. Just did not assume icing conditions on pitot tube in the flight sim? I am a pilot and flew a Skylane 182. This AP on the Carenado works fine most of the time. Yesterday on my flight from Jackson Hole, Wy to KDEN I am cruising above the cloud layer on an IFR flight. AP on HDG set ALT st at 17,000 and ATC will not let me lower my altitude as I have been flying for well over an hour and now past the higher terrain. All of the sudden, the plane starts descending and I disconnect the AP and try to gain control adjust the trim and not getting response to my inputs. So it makes me think that the AP is going bonkers and somehow messing up the control of the aircraft. That is why I was asking if I need to uninstall and re-install the Carenado 337 to see if it would fix the glitch. Never have a problem when flying other aircraft. Just wondering. Thanks for any help. Lewis Block
  13. I like this airplane, but when turning on the AP the trim just goes crazy. Flying at 12,000 on an IFR flight in Wyoming, it suddenly starts to descend and the trim tab just goes crazy at 2,000 ft/m. I had been flying for 2 hours and suddenly descends and try to adjust the trim. will not respond and trim wheel is rolled full down to the bottom. Turn off AP and the the trim or yoke will not respond to my commands and it goes up and down 2000 up and 2000 down. The pitch wheel on the AP is at bottom with nose up and still is acting crazy. I have had this problem with this aircraft ever since I bought the software 2 years ago. I also recently did an update on the 337 from Caranado. Do I need to re-install the software or is there a fix? Appreciate any help or directions to go to fix this. Thanks Lewis Block
  14. When I am flying PMDG 737-800 and using FS2CREW my flight always ends up with a CTD. I have 16G memory in windows 7. Hardly ever crashes except in this situation. My FSX always gives me a good flight even after 3-4 hours, but not with FS2CREW. Thanks Lewis Block
  15. So I disable the states I will not be flying through? I appreciate your response and help. I was not sure if that would work or not. Again thanks! Lewblok
