So the correct steps are to first install D3D9 RC12, then the IMS compatibility patch (not the other way round, that won't work). As soon as there will be a new stable version of D3D9 client available, the patch won't be neccessary anymore, but unless you check out the current code and build it yourself the patch is still a must.
Thanks for the clarification Jedidia. I've not had to do a clean install/creation of an Orbiter Directory in over a year now (almost 2). I keep piling on the add-ons as I go.

From a customer satisfaction point of view, I found this guide as an easy one that gets me in after just a while of downloading and decompressing. Not a big deal.

Thanks!

Now I have to say I migh have run onto some installation error: I got my system crashing after startup. I noticed that I missed the Themis module, so I downloaded and extracted it. Then another crash. The log told me someting about the vanguard, so I overwrote the vanguard and the thing was fixed.
I think that this is NOT an error in the guide, but obviously mine, having missed the Themis during the installation process.
Bottom line: still with that, an easy setup.

A big thank you!
Serolrom - thanks for the message. This makes me very happy, that you can set up your environment without too much trouble using these instructions. I've been working with Castor to sort out a couple of minor issues in the OFSS.zip package, so pull down the latest one from the Roll Call original post, and you should be in good shape.

The Themis second stage, if left in orbit after payload detachment, causes a random CTD sometime later on in the scenario. The Orbiter log shows nothing anomalous.
I'm not sure if it's a problem on my side or if it's a compatibility issue with some addon. Has anyone else experienced such a problem ?

Any clarification is appreciated.

No problems on my mission with any Themis-related CTD's.

SSBB 4.1B also requires SSBB 4.0:
Space Station Building Blocks 4.0


The installer is great, BTW!

---------- Post added at 13:29 ---------- Previous post was at 13:09 ----------

Hmm, I'm able to create IMS modules with the scenario editor after installing SSBB 4.0 and 4.1B, but any scenario with IMS ship is still causing CTDs without log entry.

Ok, strike that... XP SP3 compatibility mode fixed it,
and SSBB 4.0 would only be required if it is used with spacecraft 3.

Wow, thank you! I had CTDs originating from IMS which I could not fix.

So, to everyone seeing CTDs after loading OFSS scenarios:

Enable XP SP3 compatibility mode for orbiter.exe and orbiter_ng.exe

You need Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable for my addons to work. It's missing from the list.

Why do you use Attitude MFD instead of Pursuit MFD?
