P3D Client disconnect

P3D Client disconnect

Postby AZJim320 » Thu Jul 26, 2018 11:10 am

I have been having trouble with the new P3D client. It keeps disconnecting well into my flight. I get the following message. "[18:05:02] Network error: Connection failed: (10061) No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 206.222.16.186:5558".
Thanks,

Jim

I am also getting this message when I try to run the client update. "Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately. Jim

This sounds like a network outage between you and the server.

There was an update that was pushed out which pre-populates the callsign and type field with the last known values to save you typing them in. It turns out the code didn't handle the case of a fresh install where there was no 'last value', hence the exception.

Another update was released the next day. You shouldn't be having the issue any more.
