[OPEN] Load Stuck on "Load Configuration Files"
« on: December 27, 2020, 02:54:20 PM »
Attached my log files. Think problem is caused by having deleted and reinstalled AIGAIM (ie removed is from the addon.cfg, the users/XXXX/ Documents folder all the flightplans, textures etc) and now having reinstalled, it can find the AIGAIM - OCI  entry in the addon.cfg file and freezes there. How do i fix it?

Kind regards

Rob

where is your current OCI setup located?

D:\Prepar3d\Utilities.

Not on my main drive or within the UAC controlled area where P3Dv4 resides. Separate folder for all P3D related utilities.

you know how to add an try to C:\ProgramData's add-ons.cfg?

If yes it would be the best if you add your the following entry there yourself:

Code: [Select]
[Package.X]
PATH=<FULL PATH!>\AIGAIM - OCI\OCI-Configuration
ACTIVE=true
REQUIRED=false

Done that - still stuck on this line in the Log File:

29/12/2020 07:54:24 - Validate AIGAIM-Addon

It is looking for something to validate the addon. Have added an empty "OCI.XML" in the OCI-Configuration directory but to no avail!

If you are a new user, have nothing on your hard drive or in your registry or addon.cfg, when does this get set up?

Regards

you need to open AIM and setup OCI under Settings->OCI, only when you perform this step the addon.xml is created

OK - so I can't do that as AIM won't load up!

I have recreated the directory structure in the AIG-AIM folder and recreated an addon.xml which references all of the folders in the directory which the Program Data addon.cfg references but still no joy!

Any other ideas?

open: \AppData\Local\AIGTech

there are AI Manager directories, delete all of them and start AIM again (ALL Settings will be lost by now!!)

Nothing in there Kai - there are a few AIGTech entries left in the registry but not sure what impact any of those have on the app start-up.

Mystery?

Thanks Kai - answer will be in what the program checks in terms of validating OCI configuration as that is the point at which the log file ends.
