TrackIR S/W locks up when terminated

Post by Bingo41 » Mon Aug 10, 2009 5:17 pm

TIR version "5.0b Final" locks up if I shut down TIR when FSX is running in windowed mode. I have to initiate a Ctl-alt-del to terminate.

What version of FSX are you using?

SP1/SP2 installed?

Video card drivers, video card model?

Vincent,

Have you been able to reproduce this issue?

The reason I'm using an older driver is because of Falcon 4.0 AF.

I would like to point out that before I upgraded from TIR 4 H/W it was working perfectly.

So you think it may be due to a video driver?

I have seen some weird issues lately, with video card drivers.

Vincent,

Before I switched from TIR4 to TIR5, I don't believe this was a problem.

There is a workaround, just shut down FSX first before shutting down TIR.

I don't know if this is important, but you may want to read my comments in another thread, that points out, what I believe to be an issue with a large monitor. The topic is "Profile Management." It is a shot in the dark.

I may yet update to these new drivers.
