  1. Having lived in this region for a month or so, would love to see it "virtualized". Cheers, Rob.
  2. I'm getting the following OS event entry when shutting down P3D which can cause issues with other items shutting down: Application: Immersion Manager.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. Exception Info: System.AccessViolationException at <Module>.SimConnect_Close(Void*) at LockheedMartin.Prepar3D.SimConnect.SimConnect.!SimConnect() at LockheedMartin.Prepar3D.SimConnect.SimConnect.Dispose(Boolean) at A.i.B(Int32) at A.i.E() at A.i.A(IntPtr, Int32, IntPtr, IntPtr, Boolean ByRef) at System.Windows.Interop.HwndSource.PublicHooksFilterMessage(IntPtr, Int32, IntPtr, IntPtr, Boolean ByRef) at MS.Win32.HwndWrapper.WndProc(IntPtr, Int32, IntPtr, IntPtr, Boolean ByRef) at MS.Win32.HwndSubclass.DispatcherCallbackOperation(System.Object) at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.InternalRealCall(System.Delegate, System.Object, Int32) at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.TryCatchWhen(System.Object, System.Delegate, System.Object, Int32, System.Delegate) at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.LegacyInvokeImpl(System.Windows.Threading.DispatcherPriority, System.TimeSpan, System.Delegate, System.Object, Int32) at MS.Win32.HwndSubclass.SubclassWndProc(IntPtr, Int32, IntPtr, IntPtr) at MS.Win32.UnsafeNativeMethods.DispatchMessage(System.Windows.Interop.MSG ByRef) at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.PushFrameImpl(System.Windows.Threading.DispatcherFrame) at System.Windows.Application.RunDispatcher(System.Object) at System.Windows.Application.RunInternal(System.Windows.Window) at a.aB.a() Faulting application name: Immersion Manager.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5e669da0 Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.18362.719, time stamp: 0x64d10ee0 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x00000000000072a6 Faulting process id: 0x1c4c Faulting application start time: 0x01d602ceb22f142b Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Parallel 42\Immersion Manager\Immersion Manager.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report Id: 7d23881c-7b39-408e-9fc6-9c0e6308c0eb Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: My hunch is this is related to the install path C:\Program Files\Parallel 42\Immersion Manager\Immersion Manager.exe which is OS protected. I know original release there was no option to relocate the install ... do we have that option now? Cheers, Rob.
  3. With Orbx recent releases (over the past few months, Dundee, Scandinavian, etc.) for P3D the quality (PBR support, Dynmaic Lights, sloped runways, snow, moisture, etc.) is clearly leveraging some of the technology available in P3D with stunning results. Are there any plans to go back and retro-fit older Orbx airports (for a FEE of course - not free but a fee - work is work and people should get paid for it)? Cheers, Rob.
  4. Ain't that the truth! I'm planning a round robin in Scotland EGPN (Orbx) --> EGPD (UK2000) --> EGPE (Sim720) --> EGEO (Sim720) --> EGPF (UK2000) --> EGPG (UK2000) --> EGPH (Orbx) --> EGPN (Orbx) in the A2A 182 ... time for a nice slow sight seeing set of flights. F70 to L05 sounds like a lovely trip. Thanks for the kind words all. Cheers, Rob.
  5. Wow ... in a 737? Is that possible? Cheers, Rob.
  6. I was actually visiting Dundee back in October (2019), lovely area, simply beautiful and Orbx have done an incredible job. Cheers, Rob.
  7. Understood ... certainly not attempting to set priorities, some justifications for this request: 1. Many users keep their OS drive (c:) very small to save on costs of high speed SSD/M.2s so the less they have to install on that drive, the better 2. "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86) have a more strict security context under Windows 10, any resulting issues can increases your support costs 3. Due diligence on old app cleanup. OldProp migration left the older OldProp directories on the users drive, entries to the older executable were left in the EXE.XML so the newer Add-On.XML reference to new location and EXE.XML reference to old location 4. Consistency with ORBX Library process and less special case processing 5. You know it's the right thing to do Cheers, Rob.
  8. UPDATE: I was able to solve my P3D not shutting down completely ... disabled WideFS per Pete Dowson's suggestion. See thread: https://forum.simflight.com/topic/88591-fsuipc-shutdown/?do=findComment&comment=537575 So nothing related to ORBX, but my request to installed CP and Immersion into the ORBX Library location is still something I'd love to see implemented. Cheers, Rob.
  9. Hi Ben, Actual I currently don’t have a solution, P3D stays running when exit is requested. CP thinks its still connected because P3D exe never terminates. Something is holding onto P3D resources preventing a shutdown, sadly nothing showing in any logs, simconnect or otherwise ... taskmgr just says the process is waiting on network I/O ? A variable is the migration process I recently performed where I can no longer specify install location outside of Program Files. Installing to Orbx library would eliminate a possible variable (since my library is on a different drive than OS) so I can continue with diagnostics if that didn’t resolve my issue. FYi, I’ve done considerable diagnostics including sfc /scannow and DISM ... all checked out good, no issues. Tried various combinations of run as admin, etc. ... no luck. I’m not saying this is an Orbx issue, I’m trying to eliminate possibilities, CP/Immersion migration being one of those possibilities. Cheers, Rob
  10. But my point remains about the lack of choice of install path ... this is an option that was taken away from us after migration. I'd like to add a request to have that option return to us. Cheers, Rob.
  11. I was able to solve this one, thankfully I didn't just run the uninstall for 4.0.16 (as both entries were pointing to the same uninstaller path and command line options) ... required checking the registry, looks like the 4.0.16 version was missing the "{" and at end "}" on the key name, the key value was the same. Removed the entry missing the curly brackets. Cheers, Rob.
  12. I posted my issues over on AVSIM, but will link here just in case someone else has a work-around. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/570683-migration-issue-old-entry-not-removed-from-exexml/ Installing CP and Immersion V2 into Program Files is preventing P3D from shutting down because I have P3D installed outside of Program Files. Under OldProp I could install anywhere, under Orbx Central I can't ... it's hard code? Options? Cheers, Rob.
  13. Operating system: Windows 10.0.18363 Simulator: P3D and XP11 Screenshot: Issue: Why do I have two entries? Is it safe to uninstall the older entry 4.0.16 (i.e. will not cause any issues with 4.0.39?) central.log
