Ivo,

Thanks for that.

I have uploaded a new test version, can you run this one and see what happens in the debug.txt?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/61d4amlbe1k2kco/PSXBACARS_IVO2.zip?dl=0

Just a thought. What are your regional settings in windows? , or . as decimal seperator too?

I've only tested on UK, English, . as a decemal seperator, DDMMYY as Date Time?

Cheers
Gary

Ivo,

It turns out it it didn't work with the , decimal seperator.

I have fixed it though in V1.91 which is here :-

Just unzip the EXE and overwrite.

Cheers

just tried your initial version 1.8 and it works perfect.
did change my local time and decimal settings to English/UK, so a . instead of a ,
do you want me to test the last one with decimal set to , ?

G'day,

I'd love to use this program but I'm having some trouble getting PSXBACARS to start.

I've installed it and have a valid copy of TOPCAT and PSX running on the same Windows 7 computer running .NET Framework 4.5.1 and Java SE Development kit 8 Update 40.

I can get the AcarsDispatcher program to open, and after adding my ACARS logon to the AcarsDispatcher.exe config file, I can get it to exchange information between Hoppie's ACARS dispatch and TOPCAT ACARS programs, though nothing appears in PSX.

When I try to open PSXBACARS (normally or as administrator) it just hangs, then fails with the message " PSXBACARS has stopped working."

Is there some order I need to start the programs in or additional dependencies that I don't have?

Many thanks,

James.

PSXbacars is stand alone so there is no dependency on the other apps.

When you installed it did you use the installer in my original link? That needs to be running first, if you patched it with the latest version in this thread then you will also need the new config file in that zip too.

Did anything get written to the debug log file? How very odd

Cheers

Can I just clarify I dont need Topcat to actually run the app and use only the pushback feature?

Correct... Although if Triple7 gets on with it we wont need it for Performance either soon :roll:

I hade the same problem in the beginning,
BACARS stopped working after a few seconds.
For me it was the firewall of bitdefender that caused this .
Disable all your firewalls and try again,if it then works you have to grant acces to BACARS
hope this helps

G'day again,

No luck I'm afraid, still crashes before even opening the window, even with my firewalls / antivirus disabled. I installed it on another laptop and same problem. No debug text is created, I guess it crashes too early to create one.

Never mind, I'll try again in a few updates :)

Thanks a lot for the help!

James,

There's got to be something specific to your setup. There are enough people running it elsewhere, but obviously we arnt covering this specific issue.

Can you do me a favour and post a screen shot of your Bacars directory in windows explorer with details view selected please? I can only fix it with a bit of help.... Don't expect it to "just work" in a future version if I don't know what to fix :P

Cheers
Gary

James,

No worries.

Very strange, nothing out of the ordinary there..I have checked I get the same time stamped files.

Can you take a look in the application Log for some Error Events which are showing up as either 'Application' or '.NET Runtime'.

As you most likely know these can be found in Start > Run > Eventvwr and then navigating to Windows Logs > Application.

In the event details of these there should be some text detailing why Bacars has failed to load. Please either copy the text here or a screen shot, whatever you prefer. Both events would be helpful.

Cheers

Hi Gary,

There is an error for .NET Runtime as follows:

James,

Do you have a set of fonts in c:\windows\fonts called 'Segoe' ?

If not they may be missing, or corrupt. There appears to be a few people having this issue on Windows 7

Update to them here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2729094

Person missing fonts here.. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_update/windows-7-update-missing-segoe-ui-fonts/42506a5e-0d35-42e5-aa84-6131acd94c60?tab=question&status=AllReplies#tabs

an sfc /scannow may fix the problem apparently.

If you have no luck ill look at using an alternative font in the GUI.

Cheers
Gary

G'day,

Still not working I'm afraid, though I feel like we're getting closer to the problem.

I do have the Segoe fonts installed. Scannow didn't identify any faults. I tried re-installing the Segoe fonts, the Segoe update, .NET framework and BACARS. I also tried changing my system language from Australian English to US English because I saw this caused similar crashes online.

The crash error no longer appears, though BACARS still doesn't start and it still appears in Eventvwr with the same faults. The ACARS dispatcher still works though, is this based on the same font and software? I don't really understand why one would work and one wouldn't.

Would it be too much trouble to try the software with a different front?

James,

That is a damned good point actually! I wonder why dispatcher works but BACARS doesn't.

I tried all combinations of regional settings yesterday and couldn't break it either.

I wonder if it is a windows 7 thing, will have a think.

Standby.

Godatum,

I'll make sure it doesn't need Topcat in the next version.

Too busy to make any code changes at the moment, as having a small redesign of the sim room.
