Flight Sim Crashes On "Fly Now!" Button

Recommended Posts

Whenever I click the Fly Now! button to begin a flight, the simulator crashes to the desktop. What is the problem here?

Just started getting the same thing. I start up FS and set the aircraft, departure airfield, weather etc and then, after loading and getting ready to depart from the active runway (with all graphics in place - sound vision etc working normally) the damned thing does a CTD!!! It worked perfectly after the FS9 update and Activesky 2004.5 but then I loaded the MAAM panel update for the B25, the Just Flight Vulcan and A 340 and now....CTD. These worked with FS before the patch. Should I uninstall the patch?Kev

Just sorted it out. I know I'll take a hit from the "purists" out there but, to save myself considerable grief and messing about uninstalling various bits of software, I renamed the original FS config file as a backup and then reloaded FS2004 without the config. The program then rewrote it's own config on startup and now everything is OK. Of course, I have been into the config to make a few changes for Terrain etc as per website instructions but now, everything is working perfectly for very little effort!Kev

Is this with "create a flight" or "select a flight" ?It happens to me with any flight that has an "htm" file associated with it. If I rename the file with a "html" extension everything works fine (just no brief via kneeboard). I suspect it to be a problem between XP SP2 and IE6 SP2's increased security
