    Lightbulb Crash To desktop Fix!

    Hello everyone!
    So my FSX kept crashing after like 30 minutes of flight or less so i tried looking for solutions...
    So i have done a lot of reasearch and i have found some solutions after having searched and searched and searched a LOT of forums, I came across these ones:
    1: Try emptying your temp folders before openning the game.

    2:So i have finally figured out that FSX is a 32 bit program so becuse i have a 64 bit i think that is where my problem came from...So basically what i did is go online, download the Uiautomationcore.dll in 32bit and then i copied and pasted the new uiautoamtioncore in the main fsx folder to replace the one there and then i did the same (copy and paste) in the appdata/roaming/microsoft/FSX folder and replaced the file there as well, Now i have no more crashes at all!

    I hope this will help you out if your game is crashing.
    Greetings,

    Black Goku

    I am sorry to rain on your parade, but the uiautomationcore.dll fix has been known for many years, including in the forums on this site.

    This fix is actually incorporated in FSX:SE.

    Emptying the temp folders has no effect on running FSX.

    There are several versions of uiautomationcore actually. https://www.dll-files.com/uiautomationcore.dll.html I use version 7.2.17763.1

    Hi guys, where does this uiautomationcore.dll reside in FSX/Windows? I just wanted to see what version mine is?

    Thanks - Rick

    Not in FSX. It's a core file.

    Thanks Mark and Col!

    I found mine in \Windows\System32 and it was version 7.0.0.0 which there has been a few updated versions since 2009. In that it would not let me update to a newer version until I got the TrustedInstaller's permission, it will stay a 2009 file until I have problems!

    What's the saying, "If it ain't broke, why fix it?"

    It is the one in the main FSX folder - and ONLY that one - that you should replace with the downloaded version.

    The one in Windows\System32 must be left alone.

    Thanks Mick and Jorgen! Let's see what direction this discussion will now take?

    I don't think it would hurt anything to have one sitting in the FSX main, but, I will see what others say on theirs. I know I don't have one, or at least I did not find one in my FSX main.

    Thanks guys!
