Like all of us, I've been using FS9 for years on multiple computers. If I could combine all my flight hours from my different machines, I could likely get a license of some sort.
I installed MSFS on my Win 7 machine about eight months ago and have learned to work around the quirks associated with it on the OS. Unfortunately, on last weekend's flight from KSEA-KSFO, flight sim crashed as ATC started me on the approach to the runway. I was able to load my last save and tried adjusting things like my decent speed and my response time, but it crashed at almost the exact spot every time. I tried starting another flight with different aircraft and different locations, but they wouldn't even start, it just crashed when the flight started to load. Therefore, I'm looking for suggestions how to solve the problem.
The only error message I receive is that flight sim has stopped responding. Win 7 then looks for updates and closes the program. For the last few months, I've been adding AI planes and flights through yRoute and AI Flight Creator. With my current computer, I have more space for storage, so I added a few Project Airbus planes. I've noticed that none of them have worked though when specifically looking for them at their departure time and airport. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the sim crashing or if it's just a coincidence. I've also seen several aircraft paints not showing up in my aircraft selector after checking numerous times that I added them correctly.
Any experience others have had and solutions they have found are appreciated. I did search the forum, but nothing seemed to come up. Looking forward to my weekends of virtual flying may be grounded for a while if it's something too serious.
