The CTD happens to other add-ons as well and i can´t pinpoint why it does it i just know how to solve the problem, as i have done a lot of research in the past...
The main problem here is the fix, as you have to run the add-on in compatible mode it´s a advise by some staff at Microsoft have given, so thats where i have my info from, also your flightsim would say the same if it crash and you search for a solution.
But you can´t do this whit this Add-on if it still is as when it was lunched.. or use GSX as i got but never used as they blame you if you dont run whit out compatible mode..
The fact is we run a old game thats not build for Vista, win 7 or 8. and the compatible mode was build to solve some of those problems.. know from other programs thats not the latest and some programs only works that way..
So my bigest wish is that as sooner we agree the sim need this, we would have solved a problem for many, insted of the statement for GSX blaming some developers for using old codes as i have seen they stated..
But i wish i could directly point the problem and give a solution, so we could use both compatiblemode and not... but im no programer sadly so i know nothing about that i can just say what has worked for other add-ons and costumers..
Best whishes.. I hope i could return using the plane some day as well as GSX but the chances are small..
Some say like at other forums well it´s at shut down it hapens so what the heck... Thats a bad comen´t because every time a program fails you are in danger that windows makes a fault and thos fault build up and can have very bad side effect along the road.. i have tryeid it and it´s all because things crash and the sim dosent shut down right.... it would be the same as parking your car and put it in the highest gear press the brake pedal and let it shut the engin every time, how does your car work in a month? not good i would guess
I am going to have to disagree with your logic and ask we focus on the An-2.
As mentioned elsewhere, I have a new computer last February. I have no problems running FSX or FS9 under Windows 8, and I do not have to run in compatibility mode.
Since installing FSX, I have purchased 74 additional addons. I haven't counted the number for freeware addons, nor FSX addons I accumulated prior to February. NONE of them give me a CTD on exiting FSX except for the An-2.
FSX does have its quirks, such as OOM when switching aircraft too many times and occasional slow loading of textures in certain regions. But overall it remains stable and enjoyable under Win8.
I'm not a programmer nor developer, but have been working with computers, applications and operating systems since DOS 3 days so I think I have enough hours behind the keyboard to validate my observations.
