View Full Version : My A36 /Flit sim keeps crashing.

OK.. When I bought the A36 I installed it on my laptop (win XP Pro) and eveyrthing worked except for that memory popup issue with the realty xp garmin. but it worked pretty good.
Now, i am installing it on my new dell desktop and it doesn't work. I start with the default Cessna and then in 2D view.. I load up the A36 and it simply crashes..pinching everything out of the memory ..not even the usual ""sending message to Microsoft pop up. It simply disappears.
tried unintalling it and reinstalling it...but its the same.
Windows XP Pro with patch 2.
Dell XPS P4 3.2G HT.
GeForce 5900 Ultra 256 AGP card
1 Gig Dual channel memory.

This is to be expected. When you purchased the A36 on your laptop it created a Key and licence unique to that device.
I understand that the latest version of the Flight One Wrapper is "partially transferable" so try the following.
1. Locate the folder with the A36 Key (by default C:\Dreamfleet) and copy the folder to your new PC.
2. Copy the original downloaded "red aircraft" file to the new PC.
3. Run this file, online to verify the purchase, and with any anti-virus or firewall software temporarily disabled. During this process you will have to "point" to where the Key is and enter the last 4 digits of your purchasing credit card.
4. When the Key is re-validated it will extract another copy of the actual installation file.
5. After validation/installation, do not move the Key.
Note that you must run the Wrapper file again, the previously-extracted installation file won't work.
Obviously this requires that the new PC is connected to the Internet.

You know.. this is what I thought I did. I went through the wrapper. Instead of purchase, I clicked on reinstall. and then It asked me for a key..and I selected the key..then it asked for the password..I think. and that was it. So I thought it was a good install. And I did this twice.

Can you confirm that you can run the GNS430 Trainer outside of FS ? If so, this will at least confirm that this isn't the module causing the problem.
If you can't (or it hasn't actually installed) then you could try re-installing the Trainer to a "simple" location such as C:\Garmin. The installer should be found in a location such as \FS2004\RealityXP or similar. If you can't find it the Trainer is available as a free download from the Garmin website.
Edit: I see from your initial post that you are using a P4 with Hyperthreading. Do you get any better results loading the plane if you turn off the Hyperthreading ? This was a problem with the earlier generation of the RealityXP GNS530, but I understand that HT should work with the v2005 versions.

Yup.. The 430 runs pretty good.
Well.. I thought it was the HT.. so I turned it off... but that didnd't do it. So Turned the HT back on.

You may have been following the threads at the Flight One Forums concerning the "memory grabbing / freezing" of the GNSx30 utilities if left idle for too long.
Try this. Without having FS2004 running, open Windows Explorer and navigate to
then run the file. You should get a small Dos window open briefly. Now try loading the Bonanza and see if it solves the problem. If it does you can put a shortcut to this file on your Desktop and/or in your Windows\Start Menu\Startup folder (so that it runs when your PC reboots.)

I had to reinstall Win XP all over again for some other reason..and this time.. It was OK.
so... A36 is just fine now.
Thanks anyway. But it was kind of strange..
