Suddenly SPACARS stopped working. When I click on Flight Plan, I get an error message that starts with"SystemArgumentOut OfRangeException: Length cannot ve less than zero" and continues with a bunch of other lines. Should I just reinstall or what?

Hello William,

Sorry you're having problems. The "bunch of other lines" would be great to see as it would help me figure out what is less than zero that can't be (and fix it with a better error and perhaps keep it from crashing). I've made no recent changes to the program, so it's something to do with your flight plan or plane configuration that it doesn't like. The latest version is 5.1. One of the earlier versions had an error that would show like that if your plane had no payload/fuel settings. I think this happened for me with the Aerosoft A321 before I configured it with payload manager. So...you likely switched planes or did something different with your flight plan that it doesn't like.

So in this order:

Make sure you have the latest version of SPAACARs (5.1)
Make sure your plane has initialized fuel and has a payload of at least 170 lbs. in fsx before starting spaacars.
If it still doesn't like something about your setup (plane or flight plan), then please do a screen copy or other copy of that full error message so I can see what variable is 'zero' and most easily identify the issue.

Thanks, I used the same flightplan, but this time got a different error message stating that it could not find my pln. How do i attach a screenshot using this message?

Bill,

The hit the Prt Sc button while holding the Alt button down will print the active window, then paste it into the paint program (in your Start-&gt;All programs-&gt;accessories). Then save it as a jpg (or the default png is fine too).

If all else fails and you still want to fly the flight, you can manually add the fields to SPAACars rather than having it try to read your flight plan using that button. What sim are you using? and is the flight plan loaded into the sim prior to starting spaacars? Is this a flight plan from a 3rd party program or one created by your simulator?

John

John,
I got it work. I upgraded to 5.1, but I think the problem was the way I had edited the flightplan. Anyway, thanks for all your good work.

That's great news Bill. Yes, the flight plan parsing is a tricky thing, and I really only tested it with FSX, and maybe P3D - and made accommodations for Misty Moorings flights. Additional flight plan compatibility would probably require additional code to accommodate.
