I am experiencing a crash when I access the FSX menu. How do I fix this?
Article ID: 10

While flying FSX in a Windows 7 or Vista Environment, the menu system can sometimes cause a crash-to-deskop (CTD) when the user accesses the FSX menu system during a flight.  A fix for this issue can be found below.


Download Required Files

Before applying the Menu CTD fix, you must make sure you have the latest file libraries for the following software updates (Reboot After Each Install)

1. Direct X -

2. C++ Library -

You want to download and install:

ENU (vcredist_x86.exe) NOTE: Or the one which is right for your OS language   ENU= ENGLISH

DO NOT install the x64 version. Even with a 64bit OS the C++ library update you need is the 32bit (x86) version, because FSX is a 32bit application

3. Newer version of uiautomationcore.dll (Read How to apply the fix for installation of this file).
