Thanks, Bliksimpie, for your explanation of the Event Viewer. The timing was perfect for me - I just reinstalled FSX Gold Edition yesterday after a complete Windows 7 re-load, and have been getting consistent CTDs whenever the "escape" key is pressed to end flight, even with the stock FSX aircraft. Event Viewer pointed me to a file "atiumdag.dll" and more digging showed this to be part of the driver package for my ATI video card. It appears the shop that did the OS reload took the opportunity to update my rig to the latest ATI Catalyst version, 13.9. Finally, over at Avsim I see other ATI users are finding that Catalyst 13.9 doesn't play well with FSX: http://forum.avsim.net/topic/421545-lat ... -with-fsx/
The general consensus over on the AMD support forum appears to be to roll back to Catalyst 13.4; I'm just working up my courage to give this a try. Very happy to have found your post before I stripped out FSX and tried another re-install.
ATI video card owners and FSX users beware - Catalyst Version 13.9 may not be your friend.
Hee, I had the same issue but not only related to FSX. The problem seems to be connected to a multi monitor setup.
When I use my computer with 1 monitor there are no issues at all.
I got the CTD after updating the ATI driver to the latest version. After clicking on a ATI preferences icon I got the CTD´s but only with multi monitors.
