Mission Planner crashes Windows XP

Crash description: no network connections displayed in status bar. Cannot enter network connections either from start menu or control panel. After this Explorer stops and doesnt restart. Cannot use Windows. (despite, there's still wifi and Internet).

I did rollback to a previous stable condition. Windows worked fine.

Downloaded and installed fresh MP. Got the same crash. This is definitely because MP or one of two drivers it installs.

Windows XP SP3 latest.

MP 1.2.53

  • Many thanks Michael! With new version and new interface the bug appear no more. I've checked out again this and previous - it was and now it is not.

  • Developer

    I would suggest reinstalling windows. as it sounds like an underlying system problem

  • BTW, what is '3DR driver' installed by MP? What is it supposed for and can it be replaced with another driver?
