I have been told by some that the CTD is caused by not having the ENGLISH (United States) Language pack installed. Not only is it installed but so have been ALL of the Speech/Region/Date and Time formats
Without any success whatsoever.
The Flight Sim is still flyable even though I cannot change any of the parameters stored within OPTIONS > General. It appears that I am just running on those settings that were in place prior to this fault developing.
MSFS has been fully reinstalled - no change.
Windows has been reset and MSFS reinstalled - no change.
Windows has been fully wiped and MSFS reinstalled - no change.
This seems to be relatively common one, to do with the US English language pack not being installed.
I have to say I never used to have this installed, and didn’t get this error. My understanding it was only to do with offline ATC voices, which I never used as I have Azure turned on. But I installed it anyway as a backup in case Azure drops offline.
unfortunately not only for that… its a realy strange dependency.
as @Hester40MT already mentioned we can only repeat that this combination is normaly because of the missing english lang pack US.
What you find out after checking the link which Hester gave you ?
So far I remember me other cases for ucrtbase.dll was somewhat with the c++ lib or the windows audio service. But not sure, because these seems not realy match with your desc and these have different error numbers.
Many thanks to you guys for your help. I knew about the English (US) Language Pack and had it installed for a couple of weeks but it did not cure the problem. Then when I saw your screen shot I noticed that you’d got more icons showing against both of your Language Packs and so, I attempted the get the same. Don’t know why but it nows works and once again I can open Options>General.
I’m sure that I’ve been running this sim for many months without that English (US) pack running!
It’s reported that error can occur if you do not have the US English pack installed.
The scenario that could cause this is you have Azure TTS enabled, but for some reason this connection fails, then offline ATC tried to use a language pack that is not installed. What they should do is just generate a text based only if the language pack is detected as missing, rather than a crash.
