No self correction I am afraid, and, before "tempting" a restoration of the system, I would like to try some "softer manipulations”.
Strange enough, after a fresh install of FDC from CD, the 3.14 cumulative program enabled FDC to properly start.
Unfortunately, the next time I tried to call FDC, it failed with the same error message. Would this help?
It is true that the same day (20/02), before closing my session, I installed a little program enabling to choose the "details1.bmp" texture: truegrass_v1.3 provided on AVSIM by www.stagesoft.org
– people not reachable anymore on the Internet, I tried before calling you.
As soon as the FDC/PFE problem was discovered, I removed this little application by using the provided Uninstall program, thinking that this would solve the issue. Nada.
On their warning read.me file, they mentioned that .NET Framework 2.0 was required and I verified this. I already had it on by PC (also checked on my last backup). In case they would have changed any of .NET 2 elements, I made a new install of this Windows package... in vain (after stop and start of the PC).
Being an emeritus programmer of Aerosoft and, I guess, a very busy man, I don't ask you to give me the solution but, at least, provide me with "technical" feelings concerning this error taking the following facts into consideration:
- If due to a native PFE/FDC failure, full re-installation should have fixed the problem.
- All other related software’s that I use - FS9.1, HIFI/ASE, PFPX, TOPCAT, FSPS tools, all airplanes loading programs, etc - all are working ok.
- Repair of VB C+++ 2015
- Reinstall of .NET FRAMEWORK 2.0
- Scanned all my PC and could not find any CPC dll or program (returned by FDC when failing)
I am surprised that only those 2 products have problem. I though that all PC developers were using the same kind of programming language.
I have attached the following docs for your guidance:
- stagesoft read.me file
- stagesoft Uninstall dat file
- PFE error print screen
- FDC error print screen
Any clues ?
