Error opening FSX Planner

Please, Please, please can someone stop the disapearing hair problem I have!!!

Trying to open FSXPlanner and get the following error:-

java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.zbluesoftware.fsxp.ui.MainDisplay.addPropertyChangeListener(MainDisplay.java:394)
at javax.swing.plaf.synth.SynthPanelUI.installListeners(Unknown Source)

at com.zbluesoftware.fsxp.FSXPlanner.<init>(FSXPlanner.java:153)
at com.zbluesoftware.fsxp.FSXPlanner.main(FSXPlanner.java:108)

i don't know how I've caused this but I've removed FSXP and Java (including clearing the registry etc) and re-installed it but can't get past the error opening screen, I've read through the forums but can't find the answer!!

Cheers in anticipation!!

The error is coming from a section of code which is attempting to register a listener, but the variable that holds the listener hasn't yet been initialized. his is very strange because when the object gets created (which has to happen before it gets called to register the listener) the variable in question gets initialized. So at the moment I don't have a definitive answer as to why this is happening.

Well its still doing it and what you mentioned is unfortunately gobbledygook to me so I'll hang on unitl you can come up with the answer

Cheers

Sorted!:)

Searched again for zBlueSoftware and found a few more files and registry entries!!

Got rid of them again then installed inthe default place - it ran. so uninstalled int and re-installed it where I wanted it and everything works now!

Cheers for the concern chaps

That's great that it is working. We'll have to check to see if any registry values get written that might create this error. Now we know where to look, so thanks for pointing it out. :)

I am the same, I am not a code head.....I need step by step instructions....please. I am in the registry searching for bread crumbs of installation.....I removed fsx p, I reinstalled java.

You have picked up on a four year old thread :eek: FSX Planner is now very old and no longer supported by the developer. I am not sure how many folks still use it and may be able to help.

You might consider an alternative airport design tool instead. There are a couple that are still actively developed for FSX.
 
Old software

lol
Oh lord....well, thank you for responding.....I have also downloaded ADE.
I am new to this community....I am working to become an expert with the current tools.....would you please provide any suggestions for what is latest Airport Design Tools?


Thank you very much for your time

I think the two current tools for airport design and FSX are AFX and ADE. You say you have downloaded ADE so perhaps that will do what you need. ADE is free (except for some features that are paid for) AFX is available from Flight1 and is payware. AFX is very similar to AFCAD for FS9 so for folks used to AFCAD it is an easy transition.
