  1. You did it Nick! I know it sounded unlikely, but I had applied the FSX Nvidia settings to the global profile. I changed the settings, re-booted and Central 4.1.23 sprang into life. I just want to say thanks so much to you Nick and all the other guys who put forward suggestions towards solving this problem. Nick, you came up trumps earlier in the year with a fix for the problem I was having with Orbx EGML Damyns Hall which was displaying incorrectly. You offered a different objectflow.dll which solved the problem Many thanks once again from a lad from Wakefield who can
  2. Hi Nick, That sounds like a good shout and many thanks for your time; I’m a bit far down a glass of wine on UK time to start trying now, but I’ll give it a go in the cold light of dawn tomorrow. Once again, many thanks for your time, Cheers
  3. Hi Ade, sounds like you might be having the same problem l have; I have had a dark grey screen, but currently mine is white! Maybe some of the suggestions offered to me might help you out; all the best.
  4. Hi Josh, Here are two screenshots, first one is the initial startup screen, second one is the main program screen. Just a thought; is this maybe account related? Over the years I have amassed 3 Orbx accounts, but I have only ever used one of them to logon with Central. Cheers
  5. Hi all I'm in the process of trying to sort a Central problem and have been asked for screenshots. However, when I try to upload them, I get an Error 200 msg. Googling it seems to suggest the problem is server side. Just wondered if anyone else had stumbled over this problem. Cheers
  6. Hi Josh, at the moment I can't upload images; I get a server error 200 whatever that is; I have managed to upload the Central log which ran for about 30 minutes' I'll see if I can sort the server error. Cheers central.log
  7. Hi all, I've gone back to trying to install the latest version of Central as trying to run 4.1.14 hit a wall. Trying to run the latest version throws a blank white startup screen, followed by a dark grey program screen. Central shows minimised in the system tray offering 'Show Central/Reset/Quit'. Task Manager shows Central using around 40Mb of memory. Many thanks to all the Orbx experts who have chipped in thus far, but I'm no further down the line to a resolution of the problem. Is this Java related? But then I'm not getting any errors; there's nothing in the Event Vi
  8. I have run sfc /scannow and looked at the cbs log; a few files were replaced, but nothing of great consequence. Tried re-booting, in-installing Central and re-installing and re-booting, but to no effect. Cheers
  9. Hi Josh, unfortunately the only thing left in the updater folder is the package.7z archive downloaded in the install process. Cheers
  10. Just wondered if it was a Windows installer issue, but I opened a cmd prompt, typed MSIexec and the installer window came up with no errors; showing version 5 is installed. Cheers
  11. Hi Josh, Many thanks for your help. I emptied the contents of AppData\Local\Temp, uninstalled Central, put my saved copy of the json file back in place and downloaded Central 4.1.14 again. As soon as the download starts, the system.dll (12Kb) appears in a folder within the Local\Temp folder. This file then disappears when the Central installation starts, leaving nsProcess.dll. Attached images show the system file and the Central folder post install. Also for the record, Central log after today's attempt. After attempting to install, the Loading\Initialising message appe
  12. Hi Josh, Many thanks for your reply. When Central launches, I briefly see 'Loading and Initialising', but nothing else. No mention of updating. I copied the central json file to the desktop, and double checked that the required line was set to false. I uninstalled Central and looked at the updater folder. In the pending folder I noticed there was a copy of a later version of Centrasl than 4.1.14. I deleted the entire updater folder. I replaced the json file in the central folder. I downloaded and installed Central from your link, but still no joy. The initial screen was as describ
  13. Hi Josh Many thanks for your reply. I deleted the updater folder, opened the central.json file and changed the updateCentralonlaunch to false. I downloaded Central 4.1.14 and installed. I got the Loading/Initialising page but nothing else. I have included the central log file from that attempt. I notice that the file refers to Central 4.1.21, but that's probably not significant! As always, any thoughts are most welcome and your efforts are appreciated. Cheers central.log
  14. Sorry Josh, my bad. Yep, it was 4.1.14. Many apologies for the confusion. Any instructions you can give would be welcome. Cheers
  15. Hi Doug and Josh, I have tried creating an exception for Central in Windows Defender, thinking it might have flagged up something different about the latest version, but after re-booting the program just shows blank splash and main program screens. Certainly Defender never took exception to the previous version I used v4.12.14. Cheers
  16. Many apologies Josh for my very late response, but I've been away from my computer on urgent family business. The last version I was using was v4.12.14. That was working ok until I was offered the latest Central update. I hope you can shed some light on the issue, Thanks in advance Cheers
  17. Hi Doug, Many thanks for your reply. I checked Malwarebytes and Superantispyware and both programs are not running. I disabled Malwarebytes service which made no difference either. When I fire up Central its icon appears in the bottom right hand corner and if I exit it from the task bar it remains running in the corner, offering reset position, show Central and quit. Reset position merely moves the dark grey window to the top left hand corner. Cheers
  18. I have tried once again, uninstalling Central, re-booting and re-installing using a download via a link from Orbx Direct, but no joy. Cheers
  19. Hi Doug, Thanks for the reply; I have checked, but nothing is running in real time apart from Defender. I have Malwarebytes and Superantispyware both of which I run on demand periodically in case one of the others misses something. The only thing which has cropped up recently is that I was unable to run a free program which used FireMonkey which in turn used Dx 10. I have Dx11 installed and apparently problem free according to dxdiag. Cheers
  20. Hi Doug, Many thanks for your reply. I did as you suggested, re-booted after uninstalling, but after re-installation downloaded from Orbx direct the problem remains. I did notice that the minimise, resize and exit buttons briefly appeared on the second screen in the top right hand corner, but they were only visible for a second or two. Also.....after completing the Central download from Orbx direct an error msg appeared as in the screen shot. I had to stop and re-start my browser to re-download. The mystery deepens! Cheers
  21. I have installed/repaired all the C++ redistributables and prior to that ran chkdsk /f /r. After the re-boot I did notice an improvement, but Central would not load properly. The first screen is white and the second one is dark grey. It's as though it NEARLY loads up. Any help/ideas etc would be most welcome. Nothing appears in Windows Event Viewer either, although I was clutching at straws looking there! Cheers
  22. Hi Nick, I apologise for the late reply; I've tried with anti virus disabled and the problem remains. I'm wondering if it is due to an issue in Visual C++ or Java; I obviously don't know how Central is compiled. Cheers
