I'm gonna sit at Misty's and drink!
« on: September 05, 2017, 03:24:11 PM »
Sheesh!  Been feverishly working on getting FSX backup and everything installed again.  Installs are proceeding OK but now I'm getting an "out of memory" error after a few min. of flying.  Can't seem to find the problem.  WIN 10 is so much more complicated than previous versions that trying to find things to check or modify is a monumental PITA.
I'm holding off getting RTMM scenery until I work it all out as I've been downloading and installing sim stuff   for the past week.  Including once again having to buy Tongass Fjords X (for the third time now!)
Well back to the old disable files in the Scenery Library and re-enable until I find the offending crap that is messing with my fragile ol' brain.

Hi Spud,

I know what you mean about Win10.  My wife has it and, since I am her tech support, I have learned a lot about it and am convinced to stay on Win 7 until I am forced to change due to lack of Win 7 support from some product company some time in the future.

Why couldn't you just download Tongass from where you bought it before ?  And have you put in the highmem=1 fix?

Assuming you have FSUIPC installed take a look at this thread below.

https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/431663-vas-fsuipc-and-fsx/

It might just help you pin point the problem.

Good luck.

Sue,
I lost all my info to activate TFX when the computer was scrubbed clean.  Additionally I have had a very bad history with the company in the past.  Their support is next to impossible to weedle thru and get any results that actually work.
Matter of fact my credit union had to send me a new VISA card due to some foulup by them during the first attempt to purchase their software.

If it were not for the fact that so much of RTMM is located in that scenery I wouldn't bother although it is excellent scenery for simming.

I never went the Win 10 route. Matter of fact I have a past post here about keeping it off your machine. Whatever, glad to see you're back up and running in some from another, Spud.
