VISTA and d3drm.dll missing file for sailsim

Postby Barry » Sat 08 Sep 2007 - 13:56

This is detailed in other thread but d3drm.dll file needed and not in Vista and download or copy from xp.

When placed in sailsim installation folder sailsim would not load at all.
Tried it in the Vista windows folder and the sailsim loaded but only tested default route so far but seem OK

Also don't forget update patch from stentec or runs at 1 to 2 frames.

Also this is just what I did on my new computer with VISTA.
What you try is definitely at your own risk!

For info about the d3drm.dll and Sail Simulator check this post: http://forum.stentec.com/viewtopic.php?t=2455 . We've found that placing the d3drm.dll file in the folder Sail40 in the installation dir would make Sail Simulator run.

When this happens you probably need to download the update to version v4.2.4.0 you probably have v4.2.2.5. IN the newer version you do not have this problem anymore. You can download v4.2.4.0 from http://www.sailsimulator.com/archive/ss40/updates/ss4240_update.exe

Ik gebruik altijd oude laptops aan boord, deze gaan dus ook regelmatig stuk.
Vrijwel elk jaar gebruik ik zo een andere pc voor mijn navigatie.
Kan ik oude (kapotte) pc's uit het activatie-overzicht verwijderen?

Select the Session or Partition where you lost the data and select "Find missing files and folders".
