Panel window only opens when electronic kneeboard are open

Post by brummeln » 09 Sep 2007, 12:11

Hello,

I installed the Safir and made some test flights :D.
But a phenomenon occured, the Panel windows did not open, even though the PC reacted to the shift+(n) command since a sandglass was shown :?: .
After a while I found out that all the Panel windows I've tried to open, opened up while pressing F10 for the Electronic Kneeboard.
Closing the Kneeboard and all the Panel window disappeared again. :(
So I had to fly the the Kneeboard open and drag it to the bottom of the screen in order to use the panel windows as usual.
Flying another airplane, and now the same thing happened. :x
Tried everything, offcourse also the Default 172 flight that seem to be the general recipe.
Seemed some setting in FS9 changed after installing the Safir.
I've not seen a similar topic and hope somebody has a clue cause I don't wan't to reinstall FS9.

Hi,

Safir installer doesn't change any FS configuration files.
Only one file from Safir package is being loaded with FS.
Try to move "FS2004\Modules\SWLSafir.dll" file to a temp folder, start FS with default airraft like C172 and check for normal panel opening.
Move .dll from temp folder back.

Let me know if this helps.

If not, this is a global FS bug, not Safir's one.

Hi,

I have only one idea: try to deinstall Safir for checking. If there is still this bug it's not Safir's bug.
