• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Runtime error 429


Iv downloaded CAT but when i try to run it i get "runtime error 429" and it then tries to uninstall autocad 2005 for some reason??.Iv deleted everything on my computer got to do with autocad but the problem still exists,Any suggestions?



You mean that you get this error with the installer, not with the tool itself? That is not something I have seen before or know a solution for directly.

Maybe you could try the ZIP version? If you already have the VB6 runtime files installed that should work as well.
Thanks for the reply Arno.It happens when i have already installed cat and then try to run it.iv tried both versions(installer and zip version) but the problem still persists.iv installed it on a second computer and it works so its obviously my computer which is at fault.

The error occurs after starting CAT, but before you do anything on the GUI? Does the error also give some text about what might be going wrong?
