View Full Version : Windows 7 right click crash

February 11th, 2010, 13:42
Hello, I just reinstalled FSX and the dreaded windows 7 crash after right clicking has returned. If I remember correctly, there was a .dll named automationcore that needed to be replaced. I followed the advice of a thread on this forum and never had the problem again, now I am just trying to find that thread :icon_lol:

The forum search couldn't find anything for me either, so Google had to come to the rescue.

Maybe this will help:

FSX, Crash to desktop fix (http://www.simviation.com/simviation/download.php?ID=7483)
It seems that after a update to windows Vista and 7, FSX has a tendency to Crash to the desktop and restart. Following the event viewer, and with help from various sources (specifically the FSpassengers forum) I (or we) found the cause. The before mention update modified the UiautomationCore.dll, and caused FSX to crash at random times when accessing the in game menu (ether by pressing ALT or right clicking). This includes the original DLL file before the update. In stall is easy, instructions are included. Be aware that this will only fix the CTD error that’s caused by this problem. Any other CTD error caused by another source will not be fixed.

I had menu/right click crashes before, havent had one since i tried this fix. (win7 x64)
