PE pilot client 1.05 settings window .net error

Keith -

Updated today from pilot client 1.04 to 1.05 on my Win7 P3D4.3 sim. Client ran fine during my trip, and saw traffic.

However when I tired to check the client "settings" window, I got a MS .net framework unhandled exception error: Value of '40' is not valid for 'value'. "Quit" crashes the client. "Continue" keeps client running, but of course I can't change any settings. Fortunately it was happy using my settings entered from earlier versions. But if others experience this who haven't entered their settings, they may have a problem. My .net framework is v4.7.2, the current version.

BTW question on the Flight Plan page: apparently the "Livery" entry is optional, but what should we be entering ?

I get the same error when I try to open the client "settings".

This is related to a visibility limit in the new client. For now, edit your c:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\PilotEdge\Pilot Client\Config.xml file with notepad (or any text editor). Find the line which says:

<AircraftVisualRange>40</AircraftVisualRange>

Replace the 40 with 20, save the file and then restart the pilot client.

Actually, v1.0.6 was just released, it handles this situation more gracefully.
