Impossible to run Swift

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


Being new on VATSIM I am encountering a big problem.

I have installed SWIFT as I am using FS9 on windows Vista 64 plateform.

A soon as I am trying to run swiftlauncher.exe it stop immediately running with the following message:


swiftlauncher.exe has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.

Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.


Is anyone kind enough to help me out?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Alex,


swift and AFV will only run on machines with Windows 7 or newer. In case that you have another computer, maybe a laptop, that has Win 7 or newer, you could run swift on that machine and connect it to FS9 through FSUIPC+WideFS (network).


I guess you want to change, because Squawkbox has stopped working for you, right? If yes, check this out: there was an upgrade/update of VATSIM's server software in the beginning of March and that's when SB stopped working the "old way". Removing vatsim.dll has resolved this issue for most (I though "all") members.
