As the title says, FSX Acceleration has won't load anymore.
I am using an Acer Aspire M390, with Intel Core i5-2300 CPU @ 2.80 GHz. 4 Gb RAM, running Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1 and have been successfully using FSX on this machine for over 6 months.
Two weeks ago, after installing a new aircraft (P-38 "Fear The Reaper" By David C. Copley & Mark Rooks) and creating a new folder with a RAAF repaint I created, FSX suddenly stopped loading on start up.
What happens is:
I start the program and the FSX splash screen appears, after 2 or 3 seconds, a dialogue box appears which states "Generating new database for scenery files.." which then disappears and the program seems to continue loading (?) However, when I look at the process in MS Task Manager, it states that FSX is "Not Responding". I have allowed this program to continue running in this state for a full 24 hours and it does not progress any further. The Memory (Private Working Set) has stalled at 81,592 K where previously, when the program loaded correctly, it would sit at around 130,000 + K.
I have tried repairing the install and even removing and re-installing a completely clean install, four times without any change.
I really am at a loss as to what to try next and need your help, please.
