CLS2Sim UI stops working after using 'Profile Cloud'
23. September 2020 at 14:32 #2042
One issue I’ve been mentioning a couple of times I’m sure in the past is how using Profile Cloud results in not being able to use CLS2Sim anymore unless you first end it via Task Manager and restart it. The UI “locks” in some way where all you get no matter where you click with the mouse is the Windows ‘Ding’ sound.
Not often I use Profile Cloud these days but yesterday I had some 737 pilots over to check out my rig and they gave me some input to further adjust some settings to make it feel even more like the real thing. Now I thought I would share this by re-uploading my profile for the Zibo mod in X-Plane 11 and was quickly reminded of this bug in the CLS2Sim UI that has been there for pretty much as long as I can remember.
Would you really nice if you could address this.2. October 2020 at 10:24 #2059
I have to upload a release today, so you wont find a fix in the 4.27.10 version, but I will continue looking into this.
I’ve tried many times again to trigger this bug, but have no success.
I’ve introduced some artificial slowness and am able to bring CLS2Sim to freeze for about 5 seconds, but it recovers always.
As you can get this to trigger 100% of the time, if you could do the following steps, that would help me greatly.
Open the Taskmanager
Do a profile upload and when CLS2SIm freezes again, in the Taskmanager, right click on CLS2Sim and select “Create dump file”.
A dialog will open showing you the path where the file has been saved.
Please upload the file together with your CLS2Sim settings folder from the installation dir.
Warning: the file can be very big (250MB) So you wont be able to upload it to the forum or ticket system.

Hello Diego and thanks for coming back on this one.
Funny enough, I just tried this to get the dump file for you and what do you know…CLS2Sim didn’t freeze. The only thing I can think of different to the usual scenario is CLS2Sim at this time was already connected to X-Plane. Usually when I manage profiles in CLS2Sim, it’s not already connected to a simulator.
No clue if that would make any difference but will come back to you as soon as I have a dump file for you.

I did try while being connected to each of the sims and while being disconnected.
What I observed is, the delay increases slightly if connected and also increases with the number of profiles you have.
I have to switch to other issues now, but this stays on my list and if you have a dump file for me in the future, I will continue on this.
In the meantime I wish you good flying.
Have a pleasant day and until next time!

Thanks Diego, will let you know if/when I see this next time.
Wishing you a great day and weekend ahead as well!2. October 2020 at 13:56 #2065
Gave it another go with only CLS2Sim running without any sim connection and that triggered the issue straight away.
I’ve uploaded the .DMP file to my Google Drive. You should be able to grab the file by using the link below. Please let me know once you have it and I’ll delete the file.

Thanks for the file.
I used it to make one iteration and have put it in a special build of the new release here:
We will have to repeat that with this one, so I can get further info.

Will give it a go when I get home.2. October 2020 at 19:30 #2072
Below you’ll find a new .DMP file after experiencing the same issue using the beta version linked in your last post.
Again, let me know once you’ve downloaded the file.5. October 2020 at 8:38 #2073
I’ve downloaded it.5. October 2020 at 8:48 #2074

Thank you for your help.
I’ve prepared another iteration:

Thank you Diego for looking into this long-standing issue and I’m happy to report, using the latest build linked in your last post, I was able to upload a profile without CLS2Sim hanging after doing that.
I’ve also tried this new build out with the Zibo mod (3.43.18) and all seems OK.5. October 2020 at 15:38 #2077
Thanks, happy to hear that!
One more bug crossed of the list.
I’ll put the changes into the next release.5. October 2020 at 15:45 #2078
Always nice being able to check bugs off a list 🙂
Thanks again Diego and enjoy the rest of the afternoon!
