This appears to be an issue if you are on the Windows Insider Fast Ring and getting the new Redstone 3 builds which as of right now is Build 16188. From what I have been able to determine, the problem looks like it is caused by Microsoft's introduction of the new OneCore architecture. I will admit that most of this is conjecture based on the research I have done to try to resolve the issue. What is frustrating is that every once in a while P3D runs normally. But, more often than not, it doesn't. I have tried disabling all addons and then enabling them one at a time but the results of those tests were inconsistent. I wish I could find out what child window was trying to be opened but, so far, no luck.

For what it's worth, I don't run with a lot of addons. I run:

VRS Superbug with TacPack aircraft of choice
MegaSceneryEarth and Bluesky photoreal scenery
ActiveSky 2016 weather
Ultimate Traffic Live
FSUIPC (registered version)



Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 64-bit Build 16188.rs_prerelease.170430-1928
Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.00GHz (Liquid cooled)
32.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
3071MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780

Not top of the line, but no slouch, either.

That's what I get for responding to a post I found with Google without looking at the original posting date.

My apologies for replying to an old topic.
