Ai_player.dll crash during flight

Postby valir » Fri Sep 08, 2017 9:18 pm

Some times I experienced v4 crashes without any error messages.
Now I installed the latest version and today during the second flight, without restarting the sim (and moving the mouse from one monitor to the monitor with the P3D) I got a CTD with this error in the event viewer:

A few other users have ran into this issue as well and we were able to pinpoint the cause. We'll have a fix for the ai_player.dll crash in our next update.

New to P3D . Generally love it.... but having the exact same crash...... sounds like it is being worked with Microsoft? Any ideas on when the fix will be in place and, as licensees, do we get notified automatically when an update to the program (v4 in this case) is out?

The ai_player crash is not related to the latest Microsoft update. We have a fix for this and it will be in our next update. We update our website when a new release is out. If you are experiencing a crash at startup it could be related to the latest Microsoft Windows update. There is more information concerning that issue here: https://prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 2&t=126667

So, still getting the odd totally random ai_player.dll crash (plus the odd crash without any Eventviewer errors)....

Am quite keen to start rebuilding my payware weather and aircraft for P3D... had quite a few planes and Active Sky in FSX.

Is it too early to purchase AS4 (weather) and the PMDG 737........... ie should I wait for this ai_player fix to come out..... will I make the situation any worse by buying this payware?

Hello
api.dll and ai_player.dll have started popping up in my error log.
I have not been able to complete a flight lately, with the sim freezing and CTD typically when i turn final after an hour flight.
Last night I tried loading a flight starting at gate F28 at ESSA from ORBX, but the sim CTD directly after loading to 100%.

I had only updated Client to v.4.1, but last night I also updated Content to see if this help.
Will a new clean install be even better?
Have you got an idea what can cause this?

I have a lot of addon sceneries installed, but all is P3D v4 versions.
