PMDG "Error creating child window" error Win 10 16176

Postby dwadsworth » Tue Apr 18, 2017 12:55 pm

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. In all cases, the error occurred for PMDG aircraft. The default F-22 did not show this behavior.

I rolled back to Win 10 16170 and the error did not appear and P3D behaved normally.

I have submitted a PMDG support ticket.

GSX

Hello dwadsworth

Below is a post from a User who had a similar Issue and was Resolved by Installing or Reinstalling the latest GSX update or Add On Manager from FSDT

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!
