!! 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.

Thanks

Hi hugo

i honestly can’t remember exactly the repairs I did

but after each one I did I tried pfpx

i never went through every step 

there was no need to

when pfpx worked ok I stopped there

pfpx has worked every time for me

i have never used any guide for this but there may be something I have not read on the website

that is all i done hugo

hope it works

 

So, I have looked on more forums and found a fix. 

I just went to this location (Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FlightSimSoft.com\PFPX) in Registry Editor and deleted the Workspace Folder, and ta-da it is fixed.

Thanks for finding out it was a registry problem!

Just experienced the same problems after a Windows update. PFPX would open but not respond to anything. Only way I could fix it was to do the following:

- Uninstall PFPX
- Uninstall the Microsoft Visusal C++ 2017 Redistributable (x86)
- Uninstall the Microsoft Visusal C++ 2017 Redistributable (x64)
- Reboot system
- Remove PFPX completely from the Registry Editor
- Re-Install PFPX

Took me ages to find out and I was close to giving up. But all working fine now.

As this is some kind of "old" thread, I just wanted to post that this was also the solution to my (same) problem with PFPX "not starting", too.

 

- Had 1.28.

- Removed it

- Installed 2.03 -> Problem

- Removed 2.03

- Re-Installed 2.03 with install-surveillance tool

- Rebooted

- Started PFPX -> still problem

- purged PFPX with tool (for I was believing "well, this should do it.". It didn't)

- Re-newed vc-runtimes (actually now I use MSVC++ 2015-2019 in x86 and x64 version)

- Rebooted

- used regedit to delete mentioned "PFPX"-key (This is what I expected the tool to do - obviously doing it by hand works out.)

- searched and removed any "PFPX" residuals in user-data, public-data, programs, programs(x86) -folders (and any other folder I could imagine might have been related.)

- again searched registry for any further key containing FlightSimSoft.com and checked for relation to PFPX (found just one for TOPCAT but no further for PFPX.

- Rebooted

- Ran PFPX-installer

Et voilá... it works.

 

B.t.w.: System ist Win10Pro - automatic updates active.

Took me hours and days to get this. But finally your hint was the one! Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge.

 

And as always: ! PAY ATTENTION FOR YOUR REGISTRY! DO A REGISTRY BACKUP BEFOR "fiddling around" IN THIS SYSTEM'S SETTINGS. IT IS ALL IN YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!

This post tells, what I DID and what worked FOR ME on MY MACHINE. It is not necessarily what anyone else has to do to get it working for on any other machine.

 

Anyway: Thanks again :)
