flight simulator x CTD while accessing saved flight

Postby Evan Popchock » Sun Apr 28, 2019 4:21 pm

I was trying to finish a flight from Los Angeles to Kona, Hawaii today, and while I was trying to pick up where I left off yesterday afternoon, my flight simulator kept crashing me to the desktop, displaying the message A fatal error occurred. I tried several times to resume where I left off on my flight, but when I tried to access other previously saved parts of my flight to Hawaii that were generated by my FSX AutoSave tool, it wouldn't let me access them either. Here's the info that I have from these crashes:

Looks like a faulty weather.dll, do you fly often with weather settings on? If yes, can you try fly it with them off, and look if it works, maybe turn the computer off and back on again? I've had a problem with FS2004 before I switched over to FSX few years ago that at Night I didn't see anything but only those little white stars, restarted the computer (of my father at that time) and it worked again. If it does not, work, I hope someone else can help you further because I have unfortunately much more knowledge of FS2004 than FSX

What do you use for weather ?
The problem is the weather is not saving I have never run across this problem before but I have used one version or another of Active SKy for the last five or six years at least
what version of FSX are you using ?
I finally ditched the Gold version of FSX and switched over to FSX Steam and have had no problems since doing so.
If you are using the default weather program you need to make sure that it is saving the weather.dll correctly
Though I have no idea as to how you can tell if it saved it right.

I currently use FSGlobal Weather program, and I am pretty sure it is saving my weather correctly. I was able to do other flights the past few days without a recurrence of the issue I was having Sunday night. I currently use Windows 7 on my desktop computer (where my flight simulator x is installed), but am thinking of upgrading to Windows 10 soon, because support for Windows 7 ends next year on January 14. As for the current version of Flight Simulator X that I use, I currently use the Standard edition, but am also thinking of upgrading to Steam at some point down the road. <<s

A little information you might find helpful
If you own Windows 7 and have the key for it you can still get Windows 10 free but you must have the key for Window 7.
check out the link below

One other point is to make sure your system is capable of supporting a 64 bit Operating System and when you do update you will either have to buy FSXGOLD Edition or FSXSTEAM as the regular version of FSX will not install on windows 10
And do not install in the default location you can put it anywhere on your C drive you want except in PROGRAMFILES(86) Of course it works best if you have another drive like I do.
I have FSXSTEAM on my D drive and FS2009 on MY B drive. But not everyone has the ability to add a second or third drive. 8-)
