A-1H Faulty Install P3D V4.5 (P3D no longer runs)

Post by cflord »

I purchased (0085158918) the MilViz A-1H Skyraider on 04/27/21.
The installation of this product has destroyed some of the functions of my P3D V4.5

1. The A-1H has taken over the default function from the F-22 when the game loads. When the A-1H is uninstalled, P3D V4.5 will not revert back to the F-22 as the default plane and P3D will no longer load properly. When trying to bring up P3D with the A-1H uninstalled, I now keep getting a box that says "Vehicle initialization has failed for: Milviz Skyraider VA-152 Carrier Attack Squadron". "You will now be placed in visualization-only mode". A Box is displayed with "OK" in it comes up. If I click OK nothing happens and P3D will not load.

With the A-1H uninstalled, how do I get rid of the A-1H as the default airplane and get back to the real default for P3D, the F-22?
I need to stop P3D from looking for the A-1H!

2. With the A-1H installed all my other airplanes now load suspended in the air, no fuel in the tanks, and I get a real loud scratchy sound when the
airplane wheels are rotating (taxi, takeoff, & landing).

I have the latest version of Windows 10 and the latest version of P3D V4.5.

I must say I am not very happy with the A-1H software and what it has done to my P3D V4,5 software. It's almost like the A-1H software had a virus/trojan/or malware hiding in it.

Any help you could give me with this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I have contacted the MilViz Support Forum. I have no answer yet. I downloaded, uninstalled, and reinstalled the updated Client, Content, and Scenery files along with the cab files. Unfortunately this did not fix the problem. I also uninstalled the MilViz A-1H Skyraider; but somewhere in the P3D V4.5 file structure it now thinks the A-1H is the default airplane (spinning). I just need to know how to get P3D V4.5 to recognize the F-22 as the default airplane again. I desperately need your help as you guys have the brain trust on how the P3D V4.5 file structure works and are my best hope.

Go here:
C:\Users\Martel\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5

Make a backup copy of Prepar3D.cfg and put it on your desktop.

Delete the Prepar3D.cfg at C:\Users\Martel\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5
Reboot PC
Start P3D and test.

Thanks for all your help. I believe I have fixed the MilViz A-1H takeover by bringing up the Default Maule at the Default Eglin AFB. I made sure the plane was running, full of fuel with the fuel tank selector "NOT in the OFF Position", and the plane fully ready to fly. I next saved it as the New Default Flight!
That seemed to fix most of my problems; except I still have this loud scratchy sound whenever the airplane (any plane) wheels are rotating (taxi, takeoff roll, and landing roll). I just posted a new post, specific to this sound issue.
