Loader hanging when selecting simulations 22/07/2021 at 12:54 #140691

I'm having an issue with the Loader at the moment, when I go to load a sim (either start new, or join multiplayer), I get an access violation error and the loader hangs. I have to force quit from Task Manager. It's also hanging when I try to load a saved simulation as well.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the loader and made sure everything's up to date. Not sure what else to try right now. Any thoughts?

Not something I've come across happening before, and from the screenshot I'm working on the assumption the violation comes up before the simulation list fully loads so hitting rescan isn't an option.

On that basis, in C:\Users\Public\Documents\SimSig there will be a file "Simulations.xml" delete it while you have the loader closed, then open the loader, it should rebuild the file, and that might solve the issue.

"Passengers for New Lane, should be seated in the rear coach of the train " - Opinions are my own and not those of my employer

I'm afraid that's a negative on that one Your assumption is correct, it comes up as soon as the simulation list appears. I tried deleting the file, and it came up with the same error.

When I try to load a saved simulation it allows me to select the file but then just sits there thinking forever. I can, however, exit the loader with the exit button, unlike when the access violation error comes up.

I'm definitely stumped!

This may have been an early symptom of a bigger problem. Let’s just say my computer is now on my table in pieces unable to boot to windows at all. I’m at a point where a system restore failed and I can’t even reload windows. Hopefully once everything is back up and running again this problem will disappear.
