Good question. May i add another? Why there is a specific option to disable FTX AU? What happened?

 

Because Vector conflicts with FTX AU causing various visual anomalies. Thus if you have AU installed, you can check that box and Vector is disabled for that area so that FTX AU works as it should.

What? Vector was causing issues with FTX AU when it was launched. They just now added the option to fix it.

 

To mcdonar, you have the option because not everyone owns FTX AU... simple.

FTX Australia is using much older technology and hand-crafted coastlines and rivers, which makes it contrast too much with the newer data used in Vector. This means until we re-visit Australia and make an SP5 using similar data there is going to be a slight mis-match between these products.

 

This is purely a legacy from development which was begun in 2007 versus Vector which was delivered in 2013.

I just ran vector 1.4. I am running prepar3d v2.5 and did not see any option to disable Au.. I just did a flight from Wollongong to Port Macquarrie and did not see any anomalies.. Is it possible that I missed something in the install? when would the Au option have appeared during the installation? Teecee.

For the first time after years and more than 30 Orbx products installed flawless, I am getting this problem while installing the FTX Vector v1.40 patch:

Exception not handled in the application. The error message seems to point to an already existing key:

************** Debug JIT **************
Per attivare il debug JIT, è necessario impostare il valore
jitDebugging nella sezione system.windows.forms del file di configurazione
dell'applicazione o del computer (machine.config).
L'applicazione inoltre deve essere compilata con il debug
attivato.

Ad esempio:

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

Quando il debug JIT è attivato, tutte le eccezioni non gestite
vengono inviate al debugger JIT registrato nel computer,
anziché essere gestite da questa finestra di dialogo.

 

 

1. I ran the installer as Administrator, as usual.

2. I have 1.35 installed and properly working.

3. I have Microsoft NET Framework 4.6 installed.

4. Windows 7 64 bit, FSX Steam

Egads!  OK, maybe it's clear to everybody else, but from other threads I had read I thought that the AU option in Vector 1.40 was going to be, "If I'm going to fly in AU, I turn Vector off ALTOGETHER.  Then when I quit flying in AU and go somewhere else, I turn Vector back on."

 

Is everybody saying it is a one-time thing to do?  If you have AU and other ORBX regions, you just check the AU box in Vector and never have to switch back and forth between anything in Vector again?  That would be great!

 

Thanks for clarification.

You are correct in that assumption.

Replying to myself (post #16).

I solved by:
1. uninstalling Vector with the procedure described here by John Venema;

2. redownloading all Vector installers from 1.30 to 1.40

3. reinstalling 1.30, 1.35 and 1.40 in sequence having care to run the last library after each installation.

Just in case someone else should have the same problem.
