#467431 In the Connect Dialog, when I click any Browse button to select a scenario, log fie or playback file ES immediately crashes. This happens whether Connect to VATSIM is ticked or not and whether Run as Administrator or not.

Event viewer shows the message:-

Faulting application name: EuroScope.exe, version: 3.1.5.5, time stamp: 0x536a7f0f
Faulting module name: SHELL32.dll, version: 6.3.9600.17055, time stamp: 0x532924d8
Exception code: 0xc0000005

Does look like a Windows-related problem. Is it worth re-installing ES 3.2? I have 3.1d on the system as well and that opens files through the Browse button without any problem.

#467434 This also occurred to me and not in the Connect Dialog box. I was trying to save a chat to a file and pressed "Save chat to a file" under OTHER SET on the menu. I was greeted by a "Euroscope is not responding" box and then Euroscope crashed. I am also running Windows 8.1.

Same message on Event viewer as Michael

#467614 The same to me- when I try to do anything with upper menu [load sector file, load settings etc] ES crashes with announcement "system handles with problem running ES, we are looking for solution".
This is fresh Windows 8.1 installation on new computer.

#467634 Thanks Eric. I should make clear that when I open ES the dialog that opens automatically for me to select a profile, works fine and I can start ES. What I was keen to do but can't is run a scenario - no way to select the scenario file, even if I type the whole path in manually. The Browse button in the FSD server dialog works as expected, but of course the file is not opened from there.

Happy to wait for a fix, just trying to provide as much info as possible. I still have my W7 laptop available so I can use that for scenarios. Also confirming that ES 3.1d works fine on W8.1

#467671 Michael,

Strange to hear that typing doesn't work. In any case, the symptoms are the same on my setup (and I'm on Windows 8.1 Update 1). The profile window works fine but not any other Browse.

To load the scenario from the FSD server you need to add a prefix at the top of the scenario file:
PSEUDOPILOT:<callsign>

PSEUDOPILOT:EBBR_P_CTR

The callsign is the simulator which connects as Start Sweatbox.

#468207 Guys, i think that i have found a fix for it. I have change the compatibility mode to Windows XP (SP 3) of Euroscope.exe, removed all that invalid DLLs with names mfcm***.dll mfc***.dll msvcm***.dll (which cames with newest ES) etc and moved the old dlls (i've uploaded them here - http://www.speedyshare.com/2YQ7C/Fix.rar) and it worked out for me. ES is not crashing while "browsing" the files using any options like "browse" "save chatlog to the file.." or "load sectorfile..."

Hope it helps,

Michal

#469691 While we are testing for a final solution I found that this crash happens only in case the profile selection dialog is opened at startup. If you check the auto load profile and the file selection is not opened that time then all the rest work fine. At least it was tested in one machine.

The suggestion is:
- Use auto load profile.
- If you would like to change your profile:
- Uncheck it.
- Select the new profile at startup.
- Check it again and quit.
- Start with the new profile, but automatically.

I tested it on my new windows 8.1 computer and it works fine. Thank you
