Arrow_PIC Posted December 26, 2018 Share Posted December 26, 2018 Hi Fellow Flight Simmers, My FSX installation just stopped working yesterday. I had just completed a flight in a Level D B767. I ended the flight the usual way; through the menu, and was carried back to the the "free flight" start screen. I then selected "pilot records" to make sure the flight had been logged. FSX never showed the "pilots records" screen, just staying at "free flight" while allowing me to do nothing. I opened windows task manager and saw that FSX wasn't responding so I closed FSX from there. Note: I've had to do this with FSX a number of times before, but FSX has always restarted with no ill effects. However, this time whenever I try to start FSX it gets hung up at the initial splash screen, and stops responding; have to close thru task manager. I can place the mouse cursor in the splash screen and it just spins like it's trying to do something. Usually it takes several minutes for the splash screen to give way to the FSX start screen, and be ready to fly. This time I have let this process sit for 5, 10, and 15 minutes, but FSX will not load. I have tried restarting the computer, as well as shutting it down and powering it back up to see if FSX would load; but, neither has worked. I have the FSX deluxe DVD version, with Acceleration on DVD, all installed correctly in Windows 7 (64-bit). It's been installed on my system for a few years and has been working well. It's installed at "F:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\FSX. I have made no recent changes to my system, except that I downloaded, and installed Captain Sim's L-1011 this weekend. I successfully flew a flight with it yesterday, prior to the fore mentioned B767 flight. After I completed the L1011 flight, I exited FSX and restarted it for the B767 flight; all worked fine, until I ended the flight anyway. FYI, I fly the Level D B767 on a regular basis without any problems. Has anyone else experienced this? Anyone have any suggestions, or ideas about what's happening? I have been considering for some time to uninstall FXS, and reinstalling it to it's own folder on F:\ outside of "Program Files (x86), as some other posts have recommended. Could this, possibly, resolve the issue? Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
