FSX crashing on startup

Recommended Posts

Okay -this is driving me nutsFSX fully loaded with all my addons finally in a sweetspot is now crashing on start-up. I have uninstalled and replaced the video driver, reinstalled Nvidia Inspector, cleaned the registry, deleted the FSX.cfg and let it rebuild, but still, FSX crashes on start-up.Any random suggestions? I'm out of ideas.Many thanks

That is a good question and I can't remember. But I don't believe I installed anything just prior to it starting to crash

I have been running into this problem off and on for about the last year. Until recently, the only way I could get FSX to load when it crashed on startup was to delete the fsx.cfg file and let it create a new one. That solution isn't ideal because when you do that you lose all of your settings. But reconfiguring was better than not flying.I was reading a post recently where someone said that he did a lot of research on the startup crash problem and found that it occured most frequently when changes had been made to the default flight. That fit the bill for me because I am always tweaking something. Anyway, what I found was that if I go into my fsx.cfg file and find the Situation= line and remove .FLT from the end then FSX will start normally.Might not work for you but it's worth a shot.Mike

Go into your Control Panel / Add Programs or Software (watever it's called), then sort the list of all installed software by install date.Cheers,- jahman.
