Freezing at Calculating Landing Data
« on: July 14, 2014, 11:39:28 AM »
Having a strange issue with TOPCAT. It keeps freezing at the Calculating Landing Data stage whilst trying to generate a Takeoff and landing report.

Here's the process I'm going through;

Plan and release flight in PFPX (version 1.15)
Start TOPCAT (Beta 2.74)
Hit "Send to TOPCAT" in PFPX
TOPCAT populates with the data sent over from PFPX
Click Takeoff > Weather Source: ActiveSkyX > Update
Weather briefing shows up fine, is current and correct (compared to the same airfield in Active Sky Next)
Click Compute to populate the Takeoff Data box
Same process for the Landing tab as above

The problem arises when I go to generate a Takeoff and Landing report.
I click WX update and the updated weather is shown correctly in both upper and lower boxes (takeoff and landing)
I then click Generate and it begins to Calculate data. It does the Takeoff data and moves onto Landing Data which is where it freezes, right at the end (i.e the last runway)

I'm using Windows 7 x64, PFPX 1.15, TOPCAT 2.74, AIRAC is updated to 1407, both PFPX and TOPCAT are Run as Administrator.

This is what the Windows error has to say about the crash:

If there's anything else you need to know please ask. Would like to get this working :)

Thanks,
Sunny

EDIT:

Just tried the whole process without using PFPX, so just fired up TOPCAT  and hit estimate for weights, etc...
When I choose just the Takeoff report, TOPCAT produces this with no problems.
When I go to generate a landing report it freezes at the same point as above (when it gets to the last runway)

Hello,

Is the problem occurs with a specific aircraft  only or with others also ?

Best regards
Pierre

That was with the PMDG 777. Just tried it with the PMDG 747 and it works fine. Generates the T&L Report when using the PMDG 747-400.

Let me add that I'm also having the same problem with the PMDG 777.  All other a/c seem to work fine.

Ya, seen that just after I posted about it here.  Didn't think to check the tech forum.  Duh.
