Some news for the users which have Problems with Windows 10.
I got some help to reproduce the problem with loading plugins like Codemaster. The circle does forever. On my side the newest W10 does work with X-Sim.
There is a bug in windows and the command shellexecute which do a simple hangup if used in some situations without a window is displayed.
It seems new Win 10 installations comes with another windows DLL and another shellexecute than updated PC's.
Most part of X-Sim do use this command, so no wonder there are problems.
I will now check if the spring update will solve this bug or if X-Sim has to remove this command and do a workaround.
As workaround you can try older windows versions or you can start the plugin (exe files in plugin folder) before you start X-Sim. In this case the plugin is seen and shellexecute is not used.
Will keep you informed ...
Some other news to the database problems: The provider did give us a new server, the old one did stop by itself. So we will see if it is stable if it runs for more than a month.
