Re: Sound Problem P3DV4.5

What language version do you have? On my system, I have the US-English version, and in the root P3D directory here the file name is Prepar3D.exe

Re: Sound Problem P3DV4.5

Just where did you find the p3d.exe, and how did you change its priority?

Re: P3D does not start after Win10 KB4515384 update

Interesting... my d3d9.dll is dated 9/1/2019 at 7:28 PM....

Anyway, if you Google "d3d9.dll error windows 10", the boiled-down recommendations are:

1. Install the DirectX Redistributables

2. Update you display driver

3. Clean up you registry.

Re: P3D does not start after Win10 KB4515384 update

For some users, yes, and at least one user has reported (in a different thread) that his problem was fixed by installing the DirectX Redistributables.

Re: P3D does not start after Win10 KB4515384 update

Yes, Vaughan, I mean exactly that.

I will also offer the opinionated opinion, that if, instead of whining, people would post what their problem really is (hint: Event Viewer), we could fix some of the issues.

Re: Unusable FPS

A gaming laptop is for gaming. P3D is a simulation - an entirely different ballgame. And the more add-ons you purchase and throw at it, the worse your frame rate is going to get. So, short of throwing money (a lot of it) at a proper desktop, what can you do? Go here: https://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/p...

Re: P3D does not start after Win10 KB4515384 update

I will take the liberty of quoting your very last sentence: "BUT if someone's system is working correctly with no issues and Microsoft installs an update which breaks something, it is a Microsoft issue." Yes, it will be a Microsoft issue IF, and only IF , it breaks every system on which it is instal...

Re: P3D crashes after hotfix install...

Yes, whatever add-ons you have, you should verify that they (all of them) are v. 4.5 compatible, and update if an update is available from the manufacturer.

Re: PD3v4.5 Crash after Splash Screen Running at T+22 to Dep

Fernandito,

I would see what the Aerosoft tech support people has to say about this.

While you wait for them to reply, you might try to uninstall the Aerosoft products from your system, then update your device drivers, especially for audio and graphics, and see if P3D runs OK then.

Re: P3D does not start after Win10 KB4515384 update

Danny, I am very glad to hear that. I could assume that one reason for me not seeing this and other issues is that I actually reinstall these Redistributables, just on a whim, about every year, and for good measure I also install the various C++ packages I can find. Call it preventive measures.... F...

Re: P3D does not start after Win10 KB4515384 update

You said it, some updates have affected some computers . In this thread, there are two users that actually have looked at their Event Viewer and posted that they get an error involving the d3d9.dll file. Now, searching the web for this string: "d3d9.dll error windows 10" brings up some results and p...

JorgenSA can you post something useful instead of "my computer works ok so everyone's should". You are not the be all and end all. Multiple people have posted problems after installing the latest windows update so don't you think there is a correlation with this issue???? I have performed a clean i...

Re: P3D does not start after Win10 KB4515384 update

I will repeat part of my statement - not every user has the issue. In fact, only a few users have reported the problem here. And I would say it is a fair statement to say that a high percentage of the users having the issue have reported it, whereas almost all the users that do not have the issue ha...

Re: P3D does not start after Win10 KB4515384 update

This is not a Windows 10 issue, not an issue with the latest updates to Windows, and it is not a P3D issue. If it was, then everyone, including yours truly, who runs P3D under Windows 10 with all the latest from Windows Update, would have this issue. THEY DO NOT. It is an issue with the systems that...
