@ markr1085 ,Yes I posted on their forums. It was their suggestion to add the exclusions.
Adding exclusions might be something to add to the debugging steps......
I checked the Active Sky forum for more information and seen the problem post (in the AS Beta Forum) and the reply:
"Been having issues just recently with CTD either at the splash screen or after sim loads (P3Dv5). After carefully de-activating and re-activating add-ons, I have definitively traced the problem to Active Sky. When Active Sky is disabled the sim runs just fine. If it is enabled the sim seems to break. I have 7514 installed. Any help would be appreciated."
"I added ActiveSky and P3D add-ons to the exclusion list and now everything seems to be working correctly."
Just to verify, you actually excluded several (AS and P3D Add-ons) to correct the problem?
I assumed that was your post reply, correct?
As I did not see any official reply from Active Sky Support in the forum topic.
I have used Active Sky for years and never excluded it.
Thus my interest.
If Active Sky confirmed your problem they, IMO, AS should add that Exclusion information to their installer.
Just to confirm if you were using a Beta version of Active Sky?
