installed my Simstarter NG(v1853) which also went fine. But now when I try to start "simstarter NG" for first time it crash with this

error message below:


CRITICAL ERROR: currupt file < c:/C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4/dll.xml > Error Data at the root level is invalid. line 1 posistion 1"

 *See also uploaded screendump and my attached file called dll.xml.

Hi Capt. Pero,


Great thanks for quick reply.


Complete line or leave last intact  "šÃ‚¿<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>"    ?

(* how has this entre my dll.xml on a newly installed computer, some other addons created this "crap"?)




Have a great day,
