Hi Howard,


I have seen this in the past & to get the sim to start again I had to delete the .cfg file, let P3D rebuild a new one then re set to my preferences.


By chance do you have FSUIPC & is your default start up the previous flight?


I had this set previously however have not done so for a couple of weeks & not had a starting issue since. I'm not certain that that was the culprit however it was something I thought might be causing it. Most likely not FSUIPC itself but maybe something to do with the selected aircraft in the start scenario.


Hope this has been of some help.

Thanks guys.  I did build a new P3D.cfg file and dll.xml file and that solved the problem.
