    CTD using Pilot Edge

    Looks like Gizmo crashed.. Is this a 100% repeatable bug or a random occurence?
  2. X-Plane doesn't have memory protection between plugins. It is like using Windows 3.x or Mac OS Classic in this regard. If you look into the history of these OS's it was very common for bugs and system crashes to occur because there was no memory protection and a fault in one app could overwrite the memory of another leading to undefined behaviour. This is no longer an issue with a modern OS however X-Plane and its plugin sub-system is NOT a modern OS and has no memory protection by default.

    Why no search on this forum?

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    By "white Gizmo popup" I assume you mean the license window? Eg: It puzzles me that a bug of this sort exists as the entire Lua Virtual Machine is reset frequently (aircraft reload, license refresh events, etc) to ensure systems integrity. The only real ties to X-Plane should be the OBJ8 animation datarefs that the aircraft model and manipulators rely on, the rest of the Lua systems code can be reloaded entirely by using the Gizmo reboot button. (Which the license system does for you anyway after a refresh..)

    Interfacing the CDU

    What happens if you mouse click the CDU button and hold the mouse down for 1 second? I would expect the same result. You probably need to "release" the CDU button by writing the 0 after a shorter interval. This will probably need to be 1 frame. I don't know how you would do that in FWL script.

    Possibly failed license?

    Do you have xpuipc installed? Please attach a copy of log.txt from the xp folder to make debug easier for us..
  7. Start by removing this: Loaded: C:\Users/spencer/Documents/X-Plane 11/Resources/plugins/projectFLY/win_x64/projectFLY.xpl (mettar.projectfly.bridge).

    SAAB 340A interactive checklist doesn't function

    As a guess, you probably have an anti virus program stopping the registration process from completing properly. Will need to see GizmoLog.txt to be sure. It contains the exact error message.

    Why do I need to type in FREEZE now?

    Also, the list of machines provides a list of dates. Oldest is probably safest.

    Can’t update x-aviation licences

    What language is your computer setup for? Have you tried removing other plugins to rule out one of them hogging the a key event inside xplane? If you have continued trouble we'll need a copy of your Log.txt file from the xplane folder.

    Can’t update x-aviation licences

    Try using copy and paste from notepad into the xplane gui fields...
  12. This is fixed in the next update.

    Locked the wrong machine

    1. The name and date of registration for the machine are provided as a reference. If in doubt, it's probably safest to choose the oldest machine in the list. 2. Occasionally Windows Update will cause the same hardware to be seen as a new machine, see point 1 re: dates. 3. Generally multiple installs of X-Plane on the same system are seen as the same Hardware-ID. With those three rules in mind you should be perfectly safe to have another copy of your products on the same hardware.

    Activation problem

    Software that is licensed to use is not the exception, it is the default. It is everywhere. It would be difficult to find an exception. You didn't just give your friend an installer or a disc/memory stick. You furnished them with the username and password that grants them access to what you self describe as being a large number of purchases from X-Aviation over the years. Playing the naive card and the VP of engineering card at the same time doesn't serve you well either. You should know better on all counts. Cameron is the only one who can help you with licensing issues. He has access to all the customer and purchase records. I just build widgets.

    SkyMAXX installer crash

    If your virus scanner is causing a kernel panic I'd get a refund on it. That's a seriously shoddy bug.
