Dear Logitech MSFS plug-in users. Do you experience CTDs when the plug-in is installed?
It looks like my Switch Panel is causing my issue. As soon as I install the plug-in to make my Switch Panel working as designed, the sim starts to CTD. When I uninstall the plug-in, the sim works like a charm, but of course I lose all functionality. I tested my theory on different airports, but only in the C172 G1000. Oh and of course this is happening since SU5. I bought the panel in April, it was 100% fine, then SU5 happened on 27th of July.
What I experience: I always start from a parking position, cold & dark and follow the IRL C172 startup procedure. Most of the time I get a CTD around 1-2 minutes into the “flight”. I say “flight”, because with standard startup procedure you don’t even start take-off roll in 2 minutes on bigger airports, maybe on small strips. When CTD happens, Steam still displays that MSFS is running. I have to stop the LogiMicrosoftFlightSimulator.exe in task manager manually, then Steam shows that MSFS is not running anymore. My guess is that simconnect is causing the CTD (0xc0000005 in event viewer), because I could reproduce it with another add-on using simconnect (OnAir Company). When I uninstall all simconnect related add-ons, I can fly for hours without issues.
Another small detail: I connect my panel to my Logitech yoke, not directly to my PC, I will try that later today and update the thread.
As an extra question: Is there any alternative, working, no-CTD solution at the moment to use my Switch Panel? Or should I simply try with every upcoming hotfix/SU/WU or wait for Logitech to release a new version of the plug-in?
