  1. Hi everybody! This morning, I woke up finding my PMDG 777 both engines shut down, starting its inescapable descent towards the pacific ocean... I took of the night before from NZAA, and was planning to land in KLAX today at around noon, after a good night of sleep... According to my Flight Planner, my block fuel should be 124 tonnes... It seemed quite sufficient to me since only 88 tonnes were planned for the trip, the rest was contengency, alternate, ETOPS ... So I woke up, no more fuel on board, both engines off, APU obvisouly unresponsive, and had about 5 or 10 minutes to restart both engines before the crash (even though it would've brought the realism level very close to zero, I still wanted to finish my flight)... I had nothing left working in the cockpit, which was close from its cold and dark state :( So no FMS to refuel the plane by cheating... So I now have two question: 1) How is it possible that the plane ran out of fuel, a whopping 3 hours before the actual ETA... Hint: I climbed to FL330, but as I was sleeping, I couldn't engage the other step climbs... 2) Is there a way, even though I doubt it, to manually refuel the plane, in a cold and dark state, with empty tanks, and no FMS? Many thanks in advance! Edouard

    CTD issue caused by acontain.dll

    Please explain to me what is the point of such a statement? Is that really necessary for you IT geniuses to give me your view on something that has not even remotely anything to do with my current PMDG issue? Formatting my computer is the way I chose to get rid of all these little unnecessary softwares that get installed on my computer with others! And guess what: do you know why I keep formatting my computer every year? Because I genuinely feel the difference, and I feel how much it improves the performance! So let's just move on something else because you won't make me change my view, and I don't agree with your points.

    Nah, no such thing... I usually format my computer every once in a while to clean it from all the stuff I don't use any longer.

    CTD issue caused by acontain.dll

    For sure! I'll be very happy to share anything I can find to help people that may have the same issue in the future. Here is what I could find on the AVSIM CTD Giude (Version 2.0): I first tried to reduce default FSX AI settings to 0% everywhere, but as I expected, it didn't do any good. As I don't have any AI Program or add-on installed, I didn't have anything else I could do... I didn't bother to re-install FS completely because I had to format my computer a few weeks ago, and I can remember I already add this problem, and I after I re-installed FSX, the first thing I did was re-installing the 777... So nothing could have corrupted it.

    Yes, That is exactly what happened, and it won't happen again now that I know about it. Regarding my issue, I found valuable pieces of information about it on the CTD guide, and I therefore thank you for your help and relevant hints! But I still find it strange that it ONLY occurs when I launch a flight with the PMDG 777, either on FSX or P3D...

    Thanks for the warm welcome! It's always a pleasure! ^_^ Obviously, you take me for an idiot, but be aware that I did NOT post the topic "half a dozen time". I don't know what happened, but it wasn't on purpose...

    CTD issue caused by acontain.dll

    Hi everybody, I'm having that very annoying issue with the PMDG 777-200LR and the 300ER as well... I launch FSX, I load the 777 with any livery: so far, so good. I can previsualize the plane in the preview box without problem. Then I load the flight, I start in the cockpit, everything's ok for 2 or 3 secondes, then it freezes, and FS crashes and closes. Here is the error log: Nom du journal :Application Source : Application Error Date : 09/05/2015 20:26:38 ID de l’événement :1000 Catégorie de la tâche :(100) Niveau : Erreur Mots clés : Classique Utilisateur : N/A Ordinateur : Frenchy-PC Description : Nom de l’application défaillante fsx.exe, version : 10.0.61472.0, horodatage : 0x475e17d3 Nom du module défaillant : acontain.dll, version : 10.0.61472.0, horodatage : 0x475e180b Code d’exception : 0xc0000005 Décalage d’erreur : 0x0000866d ID du processus défaillant : 0xf74 Heure de début de l’application défaillante : 0x01d08a856694b477 Chemin d’accès de l’application défaillante : C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\fsx.exe Chemin d’accès du module défaillant: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\acontain.dll ID de rapport : ed8e6b84-f678-11e4-9b9a-c86000bfa25d It seems that the "acontain.dll" causes the crash, but I have no idea why... The exact same thing happens on P3D. Before you ask me to update my graphic drivers and everything, note that I'm on a desktop Windows 7 64bits computer, HD Radeon 7 series with the latest drivers. I've already tried to re-install the whole simulator but nothing made it work... Thanks in advance for you help! Edouard
