We are now 99.9 % sure the issue is caused by remnants of P3D v4.2, Talked to Lockheed but they also have no idea exactly what could cause this. They advice a clean install (as we do, we have seen MANY issues updating only the client).

Just to understand the best way is install the p3d from new with 4.3? Client and Content is on the 4.3 and the scenery is on 4.1. Gyus you have created a very nice bus, I would like to fly but with this issue is annoying. Hope you guys will find a solution otherwise there is no option to make a new full installation of V4.3

How to update your P3D is descrobed on LMs Webpage in detail and you should follow their instructions exactly step by step. Otherwise you might end up with a meesed up P3D like many people we have seen here. And in such a case you shoul really consider a complete(!) reinstall of P3D.

TBH when there is a messed up P3D installtion it is not upon Aerosoft to solve this. ;)

Indeed as we now understand this issue there is nothing we can do about it. It will work on a correct P3D v4.3.

Hi Mathijs

 

Just wanted to add, that I also had the problem. It was my bad as I had forgotten to replace 4.2 with 4.3

However I followed step to step guides from LM and just had to remove the client.msi and install the new one.

Now everything works fine.

 

Thanks a lot for your support even on weekends!

Still same problem persist 

 

Good morning together,

 

I unfortunately am still having the problem after I did the upgrade of both Aerosoft 1.0.1 for Airbus and  full install not just client on this P3Dv4.3 version number  4.3.29.25520. From the pictures when I load the F-22 default then switch over I get sound and no functional cockpit. I do not have a anti-virus program and defender in win 10 is off. Not sure what else could try. I did 2 new installments and results are the same.

Okay, I am sorry to say we are still 99.9% sure the issue is with the sim and not the files. As you have seen almost all users who fixed the sim had the problem solved. We spend 8 hours looking at the code yesterday but simply see no reason why this should happen.

Well I assume you have seen the comments in this thread that say it is solved after the sim was fixed. That clearly seems to indicate where the problem is. We experimented a lot but are totally unable to recreate the issue internally. We had one beta testers who had it but he deleted his sim (cleaned out the folders) and re-installed the new version and found his problem fixed. Before he did that we tried some changes in files but without any difference. The fact we re-compiled all DLL's and inserted them in 1.01 was more to make sure there were no beta files circling around then anything else.

 

Basically we have no way to do anything about this. We would not know what to do. Everything points to issue locally on the users system. 

Now I am sure you believe you sim is beyond doubt 100% correct, but we more or less guarantee that if you insert a new disk in your system, install Win10 and the sim it will work. And there is not a lot else we can promise. I understand this is not advise customers like to hear, but is some people have an issue that thousands do not it is sometimes the only advise that can be given.

 

I formatted a disk earlier this year because for some totally unexplained reason the sim would not run the NGX.

When you read back in this topic you will see that 99% of all problems are the result of a broken/damaged P3D installation. This can be caused by doing a P3D update not as instructed by LM, it can caused be manually editing files, applying useless tweaks or even by other addons (see above).

so if a proper re-installation of the P3D client as instructed by LM doesnt help, only a completely fresh install of P3D helps.

Please check the logs of your anti virus software if it has something to do with this.
