!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

  1. Solved the task bar issue. When I started digging, I also noticed the top bar was missing the minimise and X buttons. I clicked the Ctrl + Enter keys, this brought back the top and bottom bars correctly and now my task bar is back. So, some how with all my key pushing to resolve my EFB issue, I must have inadvertently clicked these two keys without noticing. ok, solved.
  2. Thanks Mathijs, that resolved the issue of bright screen. Also stops me testing settings that kills my P3D sessions. Something strange did happen though. After "panel.cfg.stop" of the original panel.cfg, and applying the replacement 'panel.cfg', my task bar is removed when I have a P3D session, making getting to other functions like chaseplane etc now requiring use of the windows key each time. Then when I reverted back to the original panel.cfg, the problem still remains...So, maybe a coincidence, that this issue just appeared at the same time. I always have my task bar 'locked', so usually always there. Need to dig further to see what I have done to cause this.
  3. I have just loaded the A330, (with 1.0.0.5 Experimental) The main issue so far is the EFB white out when I have HDR on, and the P3D lighting settings set as stated in Vol .1. have been used. If I turn off HDR, then I can read the EFB great, but the cockpit is in dusk brightness and overhead needs lights to see anything. Also, if I turn the EFB to night time mode, it becomes more readable. Some times while I am clicking the various EFB tabs too quickly, it crashes my system. I had a look at some other of my a/c with EFB, eg, the Aerosoft CRJ 700/900 works great, as well as overhead visibility. The QW 787 Has a Bright/Dim control toggle button so all users systems can use the EFB. I realise this is different technology...but the problems are the same. I am using P3D v 4.5.13.32097 on client, cont. and scenery. My Samsung, 32" 2 k monitor is set at 50% settings, so no colour saturation. I checked it against a colour test card, and it looked ok. I have removed and let P3D rebuild the shaders folder. To my knowledge, I have no other shader programs. I have a GTX 1070 video card. Drivers all updated two weeks ago. I also tried using another monitor, 24" 1080, but still the same brightness issue. Anyway, if a solution can't be found, then maybe the best resolution is for Aerosoft to provide a switch to turn off the EFB, (like 'Dave" in the CRJ) then those of us who can't use it, can at least remove the distraction.
  4. Hans, very good that you have found an issue that may assist us with flight save/reload.. Can you comment about the current/previous AIRAC dates and how, if at all, they affect the save/reload flight. For example, if i save the flight with AIRAC "A" but reload with AIRAC "B"? As long as the waypoints are the same, does the AIRAC date have any effect? Did you find any difference between Nav database providers? I would imagine most of flights saved would have had FMS data of some sort incorporated. In my case, as you know, the action of reload of a saved flight, would kill off my P3D session, so I am hoping the Dev version and your latest fix will solve my issue as well. When you release the fix and hopefully, newer version, I will test the various permutations and see if I can get this matter resolved.
  5. I was in cruise at FL380, some 5 hours into a 7 hour flight(KJFK-EGLC) with no action on the stick(Logitech Extr 30 Pro, using Chaseplane. I notes there are several posts scattered about the forum. To me, it is like the aircraft has run out of fuel and flattened the batteries (despite loads of fuel on board) the aircraft systems just shut down, in my case, the packs went, then the gens then a few moments later, all black. When I was just getting out the life jackets, when at about FL120, she came back to life, with no FMS loaded...
  6. Umm, and I thought I had done something....On a long flight BAW2, KJFK-EGLC with the A318(BA Livery) and just short of Shannon, I just lost all power including electrics, in the night with nothing on the screens....A tad scary, as no RAT, no emergency power. I first noticed pack 2 fault, then pack1 then the gens off line...sort of like fuel starvation, though FOB=7280kg... But after descending from FL380 through 9000, all of a sudden, everything came back to life..Though, the flight plan was lost. Now diverting to EGAA and will land here and give most of my passengers some Valium, then re-schedule the flight later today. First time ever this happen with the buses.
  7. Hi Hans, So, you managed to load that YBBN YSCB file, fly for 5 minutes or so, then save the file via the Scenario tab. Close P3D, open P3D, and reload the saved flight with no issues. It is one of those things. All our machines are slightly different. The majority of PC's are similar enough that their Win 10 and P3D and the Aerosoft CRJ build are within your machines allowable code range. I just need to park the CRJ and wait until the coding becomes broad enough to cope with my machine's combination. I just carried out the YBBN-YSCB flight plan and my dog harassed me for some thing at the crucial moment as I was on short final, only to lose too much airspeed and stalled when I looked back. Normally, I save my flights when in cruise and just before TOD. Obviously I could not do that in this case. Again, thanks for trying.
  8. Hi Hans, thank you for reply. Here are the files i had created for the test...For me, they do not even look like loading. CRJ 700 YBBN YSCB2.fxml CRJ 700 YBBN YSCB2.wx CRJ 700 YBBN YSCB2.crj CRJ 700 YBBN YSCB2.crjfms
  9. OK, when I created and saved the scenario, then tried to reload it, it crashed P3D. Several attempts all had the same outcome. Sometimes to the screen saver some times the load hangs requiring me to crash out. For some reason, despite the two updates, that previously allowed me to load a saved scenario, have now stopped working. All other aspects of the aircraft seem to work great. When I reload a saved scenario for the A318-A321, I have no issues. The same for the FSL A320, the PMDG 777, the majestic Q400..all load ok.
  10. That's ok Tom. If the Updater says it has updated the a/c to what ever x.x.x, then that will do.
  11. As stated previously, I Updated the CRJ700/900 to 1.2.0.0. and applied the Updater for the CABIN ALT and PASS OXY ON warning. On the same day, with no P3D restart, when I saved a flight and reloaded it, the scenario was correctly loaded. and I could carry on with the flight. However, after a restart of my P3D machine, and I reload P3D and try and load the same saved flight, it crashes P3D...either straight to the screen saver or it might hang unresponsive and needs me to use Task Manager and end task. Anyway.........Later, I will create a flight plan and configure the CRJ900 again for taxi, sitting at an airport. Save it, and while P3D still running, reload it. Assuming it loads ok, I will then reboot the P3D machine and retry loading the scenario and see what happens and report back. I have been playing with the Updater, so I am not sure if this has upset it. My method of reloading a scenario is to: Load P3D>at the load screen, accept the default a/c(F22) which has its engines running, and accept the default airport, select ok, and when the F22 is sitting at the end of the default runway, I select Scenario from the top left, and select load. Chose the saved flight scenario, click ok. Maybe my machine is sensitive to this reload action. I recently had the P3D QW 787...For me, the major issue was being unable to get the saved flight scenario to reload. Apparently some QW 787 people did not have any issues. There was another group of us that did have this issue.
  12. OK, looking at my original questions. In my Programs and Features area, the Version loaded does not reflect the changes made by the Updater!!! I guess this is to do with the actual base program loaded and the changes made to the base program are sort of hotpacks? Does it matter where I run the ASUpdater from? It does not seem to matter. I tried different location Updaters for the CRJ and the A318-A319, and both report the changes were made. I thought at one stage, the Updated was located in my A320 program list. Maybe as Otto said, it gets Win 10 a tad confused if the Updater's are in the same area. So, all is well in the Updater camp, and everything clarified. ✔️ Thanks for the replies guys.
  13. That file crj700900x_p3d4.xml was there.
  14. Hi Otto, What are we looking for when I open the updater? I see my version = v1.1.8.0 it says P3D 4.x found it comments that it found the Add-on Path for the A318_A319 it comments that it found the Add-on Path for the A312_A321 It does not comment it found the Add-on Path for the CRJ It works ok, (well it says the update went ok) from any of the sources I find it on my system.
