I've noticed this on mine too. Not quite as bad as yours, but I've certainly noticed it just sits there at 6% for several minutes (making you think it's frozen) before picking up again. Regards,Tom

The same happens to me. Maybe it's the amount of Addons we have, or maybe the size. I have CYYZ2007 scenery. It makes it very slow around the 50%-60% place then, it speeds up at 70.

You can't specifiy an order for FSX to load installed modules, except for the scenery library, where you can specify which scenery FSX should load when two scenry elements have equal resolution.Cheers,- jahman.

What I meant was NOT ME specifying the order, but FSX following a certain order which can be tracked to find out what is causing the sudden excessive delay in loading.Thanks and Cheers,Abe

Not sure how to go about finding this out, but I'm interested in knowing!Perhaps using a debugger set-up to list the names of files being accessed in a window and filtered to only show *.bgl?Cheers,- jahman.

What's the ADDON? - maybe this is the SOLUTION (lol)
HelloWithout conclusive proof I would not feel it correct to say in a public forum.Could be my system just got flakey and threw this error.Anyway a full reinstall of the OS and the Sim is not a bad thing now and then, luckily I have the next week off workWhat else would i rather be doing, but sitting here drinking beer , listening to some blues and throwing disk after disk into my DVD drivesmile.png

UpdateTurned out that my install of UK2000 VFR Airfields Vol 1 had somehow become corrupted.Reinstalled the package and all is well.
