About the C&D issue it is quite simple, when I start a free flight at some airport gate the plane is not Cold & Dark so I use the DAVE to select this panel state, then something interesting is I see an infinite time message saying "shutting down engines..." it nevers goes to "complete" and never disappears. Then I start battery and DC services, then I start the APU, hydraulics and cabin airflow leaving the remaining on auto.
Then I click on the Engine Left Start (or right) button but no light appears on it and nothing happens then.
So I go back to DAVE and select "Ready to taxi" panel state and I wait for engines to start and the notification that says "configuration complete". Then I select C&D and this time the shutting down engines is followed by "complete" and all works well after this.
By the way is there any way to force C&D by default when I start a new flight ?
About the jetway I forgot to say that I tested them with a B744 (iFly 747-400 v2 addon) at a heavy gate. If I use this aircraft at any non-Aerosoft airport with default jetways then I can use CTRL+J to move them. Please notice that this issue is not related to the CRJ but only to Aerosoft Airport packages.
I have just tested with the Task Manager open, and when the AsUpdater crashes, the process also ends in the Task Manager. So the process is not hanging. This is from the Windows log (sorry in Dutch):

In case you haven't restarted your PC since the first updater crash, please open the task manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc), click "More Details" at the bottom of the window and check if there's any instance of ASUpdater.exe somewhere. If there is, select it and click "Stop Process" (the button on the lower right corner. My Windows is in German, so the text on it might be slightly different). Then try running the updater again.
