Hello!

I have come to the conclusion that P3D has some sort of conflict with Windows 11 because every time I play and try to log out of P3D (pressing the Quit button or X button on top has same result) the application freezes and I have to force quit via Task Manager.

If I don’t force quit and wait for it, the computer freezes and goes to blue crash screen saying DPC_Watchdog_Violation.

Not sure why this happens, I have the application installed on an external hard drive so maybe it’s that.

However I use OldCP that way and it doesn’t have the same issue. It does freeze on exit but eventually does close by itself. Sometimes I force close it if I’m impatient lol. Never has crashed by me playing OldCP though, just P3D.

I have tried reinstalling and using on my main SSD but that doesn’t change the result for me. Perhaps it’s a graphics card conflict? Not sure what to do but hopefully its some conflict for me and not the actual program.

Maybe someone knows how to fix it. Idk I’ll keep looking for solutions. I’ll post anything if it helps.


Thx!

This bug is also on Windows 10, I'm going to guess the window.close function is messed up.
It did work previously but now it does not. Thanks for the report and I am sorry you're using Windows 11

This is why I dislike Unity tbh very unreliable packaging. Hopefully Unity releases a fix for it soon!!

I used to be Mac but recently moved to Windows again. Most likely a Unity problem considering it's fine on MacOS package. Idk hopefully Unity fixes it soon!
