Rumour has it that any SimConnect client running inside Prepar3d 1.2 causes a crash but I cannot find any postings here to that effect? Before i waste my time trying to track down why I get .dll crashes using 1.2 can anybody confirm this "bug"?

By the way, if I use Prepar3d on its own, single PC, default aircraft, simple joystick, I get no errors. If I run it in my full size sim, it crashes.

Often times these kinds of crashes are related to add-on content rather than bugs in the p3d core. We would need more specifics to know if your issue is one of the bugs we have already fixed internally. For example, there is a known bug wherein menu items created by add-ons weren't being destroyed properly causing a crash on shutdown. That issue will be fixed in the next point release.

Thanks Beau. My issue is a "simple" APP crash in module terrain.dll. Windows 7 64bit Prepar3d machine connected to 6 other PCs running Sim-Avionics software. Am using 4.8 FSUIPC and default scenery. Have not managed to push back from the stand yet before a crash occurs :-). As I said in previous post, all works great in a single PC setup.
