**********************

Q. CFS3 crashes when I exit quick missions, and sometimes freezes after I crash an aircraft.

A. Delete the Uisel.xml file in the following directories:

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Combat Flight Simulator 3.0.

Then check if you have the following directory in your Combat Flight Simulator 3 directory:

WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Combat Flight Simulator 3.0

If this directory exists delete the Uisel.xml file there as well.

CFS 3 will generate a new updated file when you restart the game. This will solve

Thanks for your help.
There is no error message, the system just freezes, have to re-boot the computer, restart the CFS3 goes straight into 'troublshooting crashing issues.
Re start CFS3 plays for a few mins then freezes again.
Repeat all above.
They suggest in the 13 page troubleshooting run msconfig.

now i dont know what to do, just got rid of all fsx stuff as well.

First I would clean out the old video drivers and install new ones.
See if that helps.
If anything else on your computer gives you the same problems then the fault is in your machine but get to that later.

If the new drivers don't do it check these out.

Rardar Man.
Have uninstalled and reinstalled the programme, uploaded new drivers, but still after 20 mins flying, it still freezes up, no error message displayed.
Does it not like the equipment?
Athlon Duel Core Processor AMD 64
Geforce 8600 GT 512 mb graphics card
4 Meg Memory
HP dx 2250 motherboard
Windows XP Pro
Directs X
3 internal fans
Cann't think what else to do.
Once againg thanks for all your help

Did you try it without the patch.
Is it patched.
Is the computer case clean of all dust (overheating), you have to do this often.

Are you using the no-cd crack, if not do.

Reloaded, removed patch, system crashed.
Go following error message:
C:\DOCUME~1\JONATH~1\LOCALS~1TEMP\WERC44b.dir00\Mini03018.01.dmp
C:\DOCUME~1\JONATH~1\LOCALS~1TEMP\WERC44b.dir00\sysdata.xml

Reported it to lords and masters their link went to Device Drivers
BCCode:1000008e

Could I be using too much memory?
System is a tower system that got clead out the other day.
No freezer unit installed.
Don't you get any sleep?

XP is XP, it doesn't matter how much memory (as long as it's not to little).

Since your not playing on line disable your anti virus (not the firewall ever) and see how the game does.
You should see how many programs are running in the background, they may be starting up and shutting you down.

When you un install you have to clean the registry also.
Here is the main site.

CFS3 was a liile buggy, CFS2 is still the prefered one.

I had IL2FB a long time ago and that series still seems to be popular.
Demo.
