Recommended Posts

Just starting off in the latest version and get this error before it even loads.

 

See the end of this message for details on invoking

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

 


Any idea whats going on please.

 

Ive tried editing the start as you described in your youtube video but it wont accept anything as a true path to my makerunways location.

 

Can you suggest anything please.

I'm guessing it can't locate the settings-file. Is this a fresh (first time) installation? which version?

 

  • I suggest you fully un-install the program and remove the two folders (where "[user-name]" is naturally your windows user-name):
    C:\Program Files (x86)\FlightplanVisualizer
    C:\Users\[user-name]\AppData\Roaming\FlightplanVisualizer
  • Reboot the computer
  • Install version 1.18
  • Start version 1.18  BEFORE  you try to change anything

 

EDIT: There should be a Logfile.log in your C:\Users\[user-name]\AppData\Roaming\FlightplanVisualizer\Logs folder which might have some more info of what went wrong.

On 2nd thought it might an issue with your runways.xml if you made your own? (not using the one bundled with the installer). You error message report an encoding error in line 1224199 (position 33).

 

I recently had an issue myself with MakeRunways caused by illegal chars in runways.xml. It was an issue with the free Aerosoft Paderborn scenery and the order by which MakeRunways was scanning (MSFS) official/3rd party scenery. Peter Dowson fixed this by changing the scan order, so perhaps you just need to update- and re-run MakeRunways:

So I'll do this step by step. I updated the makerunways to latest version and ran it.

 

Rmoved all traces of your app, then installed 1.18 and ran it then directed it to my p3dv5 folder in the settings.

 

It came back with

Make sense?

 

Thanks for your help

The issue is with your runways.xml file. If you load the runways.xml file into a text editor which can handle large files (like Notepad++) and goto line: 1224199 I am sure you will see some weird (illegal) chars or chars that are not encoded/escaped correctly (hence the xml-file is invalid). The issue I experienced, I saw "reversed chars" (black background/white text) in Notepad++ shown with hex-codes (e.g. "xA6").

 

Have you tried to download- and run the latest MakeRunways? It can be downloaded from via  this link:

http://www.fsuipc.com/

 

It's listed as version 5.11 (on the website) however it is in fact a newer version (you can see this when you have downloaded/extracted the file and look at properties/details it should show version as "5.1.2.6")

Sure,

 

As i wrote in the first line of my last post I already did all that. My makerunways is version 5.126. Do you have your own version ?

 

Does your program retrieve these files by itself or do I have to copy them manually to your programs folder ?

There are multiple ways. When first installed (when nothing have changed) FV is setup to look for the 3 files it uses (Runways.xml, G5.csv, and F5.csv) in the user-data folder. However going into settings you can specify another path, and when specified the next time you start FV it will look for the 3 files in that folder. Lastly in one of the 2 last releases (forgot which one) I added an argument that can be specified in the shortcut, where this argument tells where to locate these 3 files.

 

However I don't think your issue is finding these files. It appears that there are some "illegal" chars in your Runways.xml file. As I wrote I had this issue myself with the free Paderborn scenery in MSFS. When scanned with MkRwy the city name for Paderborn contained some weird (illegal) chars. This issue went away when Pete changed the order by which MkRwy scans "official" and 3rd party scenery (however only for MSFS). To me it appears you are using P3Dv5? These days I use mostly MSFS, however I have used P3Dv4.5 together with FV without any issues.

 

As I wrote in the last note, please load your Runwayx.xml into a text-editor that can handle larges files (e.g. Notepad++) and have a look in the line its complaining about (1224199). In the search-menu of Notepad++ you find a menu-item called "Go to" which opens a form where you can enter the line number it should go to (be patient it takes a few seconds with such a large file. Alternative put the file somewhere (e.g. drop-box or similar) where you can share the folder so I can download it, and have a look at it

It appeared changing the "é" to an "e" cured your issue. If possible I would still like to have a look at the faulty Runways.xml so I can inform Peter Dowson so he (perhaps) can do something in MkRwy to handle- or at least detect this.

Ok ill check my backups and send you a bad one before my edits. You'll note it identified a non standard minus sign too in the folder url. I've informed orbx and they plan to change the installation path. 

 

I'm quite busy today so if i can't upload it today (Saturday) I'll do it tomorrow. 

 

Thanks

Graham
