PMDG 747 QOTSII P3D V4.2 CTD

Post by undergroundleo » June 13th, 2018, 9:55 pm

Hi guys, I´m new around here and wanted to introduce myself before asking for help.

My name is Leonardo and i´m from Venezuela, but currently living in Argentina, this is my first post.

I registered because after trying everything in my knowledge, i couldn´t fix the issue.

I want to say that i´ve flown the 747 in 8 and 10 hour flights and it doesn´t make P3D crash, therefore I think its VAFS5 client related.

First I load the sim (as I always do with all the aircrafts) and after I have everything setup, I hit the start flight button on the VAFS client. That immediately makes my sim hang and crash to desktop. This issue is not replicated when using the PMDG 737 or 777.

UPDATE: P3D was installed from scratch and the 747 reinstalled but the issue persists.

I look forward to your tips and help.

Thanks in advance

Best Regards

Adding some information here are my specs:

CPU: Intel i7 7700K 4.2GHz (non OC)
Motherboard: ASUS Z270H
Memory: 16GB DDR4 2600 MHz
SSD Samsung 850EVO 500GB drive
Video: ASUS GTX 1080 TI
Windows 10 64bit
P3D Academic Version 4.2

As previously informed, VAFS5 works perfect with the 737 and 777 aircrafts. Its with the 747 only that causes a CTD after starting the flight on the VAFS5 client.

Hi Bud..

it's a known problem with P3Dv 4.2 it's nothing to do with the Vafs Client....

Simple way around it is load up P3D with a stock aircraft and then change to PMDG 747 once loaded, then you have no problems with it..


in fact PMDG say's in there instruction's to always load with stock aircraft first....

Issue was solved by deleting the windows temps and also the files in the "prefetch" folder.
