Re: P3Dv5 Hotfix

No, the version you downloaded should be the latest incorporating the HFs. You should have version 5.0.31.35253 as part of the downloaded file name. The executable file, Prepare3D.exe, should be dated 6/18/2020. You can check on the executable file version by right clicking on Prepare3D.exe, selecti...

Re: Sound Problem P3DV4.5

I found that my speakers were set to 24 bit/44K and headphones 16 bit/41K. Setting both to 16 bit/41K seems to have solved the problem

Re: P3Dv4.5.13 Silent CTD

I seem to have found the issue. I removed the add-on FSL A32X and the problem has seemed to gone away. It appears that FSL is causing the issue. In hindsight, I noticed the issue with A32x but the NGXu came out before I had time to resolve it. Thanks to Jim Young for pointing out that an add-on migh...

[RESOLVED] P3Dv4.5.13 Silent CTD

Starting in the last two months I have been unable to complete a flight in any aircraft: PMDG NGXu, FSL A3xx, and CRJ. Every flight results in a silent CTD sometime during the flight (so far never on the ground), where P3D stops showing a wait icon and then disappears. In each case, I get the same a...

Changing Saved Flight Date/Time

I would like an option on the scenario screen to set a specific date and time on that screen and have the updated tiome used when loading a saved flight using the load function. Currently, I load the saved flight and then change the World date and time. This requires a second load of the scenery. It...

Re: UltraWide monitor 34" 3440x1440/CPU/P3Dv4

Might want to look at Dell U3415W - works beautifully for P3DV4. Single 1080Ti drives it nicely at 30 fps.

Re: Prepar3d V4 CTD no error messages - PMDG 747 - ASV4

I have been unable to complete PMDG 737 flights longer than about 1.5 hours sim time. Same problem - pauses then CTD with either KERNELBASE, API or no error messages (using appcrash). No specific actions prior to CTD. Win 10, 32 G, 1080ti, i7-5930K @ 3.9 Ghz FSUIPC, UTLive, MCE, ProATCX on same comp...

Re: P3D3.4 "Error creating child window"

FireRx - thanks for reporting it to MS. I've turned on Insider Updates again since I'm a masochist, and have gotten to 16193. I'm having problems with 16199; it freezes at 32% update. Anyway, I've has limited success in getting P3D to generate the FSUIPC window, which seems to be the first child win...

Re: P3d V3.4.22 "Error Creating Child Window"

There are several other active threads discussing this. Win 10 Insider Updates starting at 16176 through 16184 have this problem. It affects any add-on that wants to open a window on top of the sim. I've managed to roll back to 16170 and do not have the problem. It started when MS went to OneCore fo...

Re: P3D3.4 "Error creating child window"

I've had the problem and solved it by rolling back to 16170. It stated failing when MS started changes for OneCore. Seems to be related to external processes like PMDG aircraft use.

Re: THe dreaded "error creating child window"

Release 16176 itself. Rolled back to 16170 and everything worked fine. Clearly something changed in going to OneCore that breaks either P3D or PMDG. You didn't mention what aircraft you were using. I found that the default F22 seemed to work, but none of my PMDG (737NGX, 777 or 747V3) aircraft would...

Re: THe dreaded "error creating child window"

What version of WIndows are you using? I had the problem when using Insider update 16176.

Re: PMDG "Error creating child window" error Win 10 16176

I have the 2/22/17 version and had the error with GSX removed. It's clearly something with the new release of Win 10. They made changes to the core to support their one platform concept. Must have broken something subtle.

Thanks for your suggestion!

PMDG "Error creating child window" error Win 10 16176

PMDG 737NGX, 777, and 747V3 aircraft cause "Error creating child Window" in P3D 3.4.22 after loading. This prevents the green window containing status, GSX, AS16, ProATCX, and other data to be displayed and the add-ons from functioning. I removed all add-ons and reinstalled PMDG products to test.

Re: Problems with p3d v3 and saitek x52 pro

Just a quick question.  Are you using WIn 10 Insider previews? If so, did this occur after updating to 15014 (the latest)? I was unable to use my x52 Pro after that update. There appears to be a driver conflict. I rolled-back to 15007 and the drivers work normally.
