AIM n ot loading after last update
« on: September 11, 2019, 05:54:47 PM »
I absolutely love this piece of software i think it's such a god send!

On the latest version of AIM it's not loading at all and it seems stuck on "loading databases" . It seems to be asking to point to my P3D exe file like it's a new install but when i go to link it to my P3D EXE it freezes and says i must restart AIM.
Please forgive if me i post something "stupid" I am autistic so certain things are harder for me.

don't know if its related but after the latest windows update (which included some .NET updates) several apps including AIG AIM failed to run. Reverting the win update cured it for me.

Same thing here..
Downloaded the last version 0.9.2.6 and it stoppt at the loading screen. Says "Loading addon airports" and thats all.
The loading bar is still active, but nothing happens. So I must close the programm via the control panel..

Yeah, works fine now with the 'dummy' file in its proper folder, thanks for the quick answer to this problem, and thanks for all the hard work you people at AIG do making these high quality models available with the growing number of flightplans you are devising....and its all free....Ultimate Traffic Live doesn't even have cargo airlines, and you have to pay for that.
Thankyou!  :) ;) ::cheers::

Just to add to the list, I too was unable to get past the collecting addon airports info stage, once i had updated to 0.9.2.6.
However following the advice to download and install the dummy bin file, all returned to normal.
However was not aware that in doing so, the software would not now search for add on airports.
Also a huge THANK YOU for the development of this tool, it has saved me days of inputting AI by hand and a big shout out to the guys that spend hours developing the flight plans ::thumbsup::
