Windshield.dll and latest C172 update for V5

Post jmrtlara »

Hi all.

I have installed the C172 Trainer using the latest V5 installer, and right after the install, it automatically downloaded an update to the product. But after I loaded up the aircraft in a rainy airport using ASP3D, I instantly got a "device hung error" with the GPU (I'm using NVIDIA RTX 2070 8GB). Checked the event viewer and the faulting module was the KERNELBASE.dll.

I thought it might be the windshield.dll culprit, and indeed it was, renaming the .dll solved the problems.

Thank you.

Romano

Hi Romano,

Do you still experience the CTD if you don't load ASP3D but instead create rainy weather using P3Dv5's default weather engine?

Thanks,

I can not even update, it tells me always that the download has a MD5 error...

Hi, I too get an MD5 error when trying to reinstall the C172 and the 20.5.11.0 version
for P3Dv5 on W10. Any advice on how to avoid this error ?

Regards

Same here,

Download of the update fails with MD5 signature error. I have disabled antivirus, that did not help.

The MD5 signature error message when downloading the update should be fixed now.
