    I have changed one thing since thsi morning: cleaned up ports registered for my FTDI chips.
    I had chips coinnected up to COM12 when the simulation stopped working.
    pls check if you application is handling properly COM numbers above 9 at all levels, it could be that.
    Follow these steps to view and remove these unnecessary device drivers:
    • Press [Windows]+[Break] to bring up the System Properties dialog box.
    • Select the Advanced tab and click the Environment Variables button.
    • Click the New button below the System Variables panel.
    • In the New System Variable dialog box, type devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices in the Variable
    Name text box and 1 in the Variable Value text box.
    • Click OK to return to the System Properties dialog box and then click OK again.
    • Select the Hardware tab and click the Device Manager button.
    • In Device Manager, go to View | Show Hidden Devices.
    • Expand the various branches in the device tree and look for the washed out icons, which indicate
    unused device drivers.
    • To remove an unused device driver, right-click the icon and select Uninstall.

    Changed screen resolution to 800x600... and it works... back to 1280x1024, still working. Will tell you how it continues and what is the cure for the laptop version..
    (the machine is a monster of processing, I am sure this is not a memory issue).
    Something has refreshed.
  • Hi,

    Thank you very much for your testing and feedback. We always test binaries before release, and unfortunately we could not reproduce the issue on either Windows 7, Vista or Windows XP computers we have. The application does not store anything in the registry, so reinstallation will not help, as you mentioned.

    Thank you for already using the GitHub issue tracker. Could you maybe give some more details there what setting you changed that could now be the reason for the crash?

    We really would like to help and make sure the application runs on any combination of OS and hardware we officially support.

    Last slpashscreen state before crashing...

    Should ERS be an abbreviation added to a UAS directory FWIW? Like it Chris.

    Windows version stil crashing on my both computers as previously when booting. As I said 2 months ago, it worked nice. Changed one setting and now crashing all the time. reinstalls didnt helped.
    Nowhere to post bugs, overbloated website, no clear download link (so hardly anybody uses it to test most obvious thing). One can say they ignore all benefits of open source testing, while discouraging old style capitalists to their team due to development model. Pity.
    'Elite Research Syndrome' here.
  • They spent too much (time and CPU) with the GUI. Simple elements are the way to go, look can be implemented in LAF's.

    Will try again, but the previous Windows version got stuck when I have toggled some options.
    Then, everytime it was crashing upon startup.
  • We truly are in the information age.
  • The flight time is so short, never did see the need for such an investment in ground control.
