Upgrade errors out? 1.2.81? Well, the startup problem for .81 is that they changed the name of the startup application and missed a link somewhere. That is what the indication is to me. And how I found the fix. If you look into the application folder there are two applications: "ArdupilotPlanner10.exe" and "MissionPlanner.exe".

The old version was and is linked to the application icon as "ArdupilotMegaPlanner10.exe" some where the change went to "MissionPlanner.exe" and the link/pointer was not changed for the installed application icon.

Right click on the Mission Planner icon you normally use and select 'Properties'. Now change the application name from "ArdupilotMegaPlanner10.exe" to "MissionPlanner.exe" - Click on 'Apply'. Now, the application should work. It does for my instance.

You can also grab .81 and install fresh from there..

MP 1.2.80.13 update resolved that issue for me

@ shyam

the error report is a microsoft message nothing to do with the developers of MP

install the current msi from the download page it will fix your issue, the beta updates inside MP seem to be (up till last night) cause the crash at startup

@shyam Yup so i installed 1.2 something let it upgrade and it started but then on closing the program and restarting it failed again.. I am going to have to dig up 1.2.80 somewhere and just hold on the updates till someone fixes this problem.

Yes, Mission PLanner is crashing after version update to 1.2.80. 

It says send error report, I sent it. But not sure, if developers would have seen it.

@sherlockth I did reinstall same thing.. But I will remove it clean the registry in then install it.. I really hate glitchy software but this is the first issue I have ever had with mission planner.

Comment by Sherlockth on October 10, 2013 at 6:02am

Mine also, I had to reinstall.

Suddenly mission planner is crashing on startup with my win 7 laptop after latest update.  Anyone else?

Since APM 2.6 is sold without a compass, I would appreciate a list of what you can and what you cannot do with or without a compass.

Like without a compass, I have been flying on stabilized  and althold modes very comfortably.

But can I do loiter, can I do waypoints, can I fly in simple or super simple mode without a compass ? 

Thx
