Hotfix

Postby xxd09 » Wed May 22, 2019 6:47 pm

Good setup -working well -P3D4.5
Put in all 4.5 Hotfix Updates for various add ons-Flight1 GTN,MV WX Radar,Active Sky etc
Set up working well -All addons running well
Went to put in Client only of Hotfix
Not asked to Reactivate.I understand this is a requirement of this update
Get a full Lockheed Martin black screen
Scenery loading box appears then CTD
Reinstall plain vanilla 4.5 and all is OK again
Mystery!
Done this type of Client only update many times all the way from P3D 3
First time I have had this problem

You didn't explicitly say you uninstalled the previous version of the client before installing the hotfix.

Other problem I've seen reported is the weather product from REX will cause CTD with version 4.5.12

Yes -I did uninstall P3D4.5 before installing P3D 4.5 Hotfix
Yes -Rex software -Radar SkyForce were causing some problems but as you notice from my post all Hotfix updates were in place
Bit of a mystery

One of my acquaintances has found that even with all REX up to date, he could not run P3Dv4.5.12 with that REX product. He removed the REX dll module from the P3D\Modules folder and all else worked perfectly.

My advice is to remove all REX, in my opinion their quality is not up to par with others and while their marketing is flashy and colorful I'm not a big fan of using Hollywood FX in flightsim.

Thanks for reply
Will consider this but all working well just now
I did not need P3D Hotfix so will hang in there for the moment with plain vanilla 4.5
Rex does give me some superb flights/weather especially along with Active Sky
Milviz Planes also look good with the MV WX Radar
