!! 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. Since there is some information about the 4GB-limit and running out of "VAS-memory", I will add my question to this thread. I'm using FSX.

     

    So when I had a flight with a few addons (FTX Global, Vector, Weather, Addon-Aircraft), I would always end up in a sim-crash after some time (45-90mins). The sim always crashed when I clicked on something (e.g. cockpit switch or menu button).

     

    My sim was not a clean set up, with addons that I had added over the time, probably conflicting with each other. I always read in forums that OOMs occure, when the sim was not set up in a clean way. So I decided to do a clean reinstallation of the whole sim and only installed addons I really wanted to keep.

     

    But hey, problem continues. I just got only the FTX products installed (Global, Vector, LC, no weather) and did the Apple mission (=default AC, airports) - just before the finish afer ~60min, lights went out.

     

    I was aware of the RAM-problem with FSX, but some aspects I read in the last few days on the internet were new to me: That the VAS-memory has often the problem, that it does not "empy" itself while the sim runs. So it keeps filling and filling until... boom. Sim crash. And that you can't really do anything about it but delay the inevitable by reducing the rate the pot gets filled = reducing VAS-intensive addons. Or you have to save your flight in intervalls and restart the sim to empy the pot before you continue.

     

    Is that true? I can't really believe it, I always assumed the crashes were related to my messy FSX. I mean, how is one supposed to do a long haul flight with the PMDG 777 then? Do I have to restart FSX in 60min-intervalls to avoid crashes, assuming I use some addons? I'm really interested in information about this topic...

  2. FS Global macht wieder was anderes. Weiß nicht genau wie ich das sagen soll. Bodenverlauf, Bodenbeschaffenheit... naja. Es lässt Hügel, Berge und Täler von der Form her viel realistischer aussehen. Berge sind nicht mehr ein Kartoffelkloß, sondern haben realistische Konturen und eine Spitze wie es sich gehört.


  3. Im Nachhinein ist dieser Problemverlauf einfach faszinierend durchzulesen. Dass ein solches, ja eigentlich BANALES Problem soviel Ärger auslösen kann! Wahnsinn...

    Zuerst mal Updates installieren und dann den Support kontaktieren. Hm, hilft nichts. Dann wohl eine Neuinstallation der PMDG und Änderungen in der Registry vornehmen - nein, hilft alles nichts, am besten den Sonntag freinehmen und gleich den ganzen FSX mit all seinen Addons neu installieren!

    Und am Ende wars dann ein einziger Mausklick auf dem FMC...
