Another wierd one or how I hate Windows 10..

Recommended Posts

I am using P3Dv3.

After my last Windows 10 update the sim comes up but the keyboard and mouse are unresponsive until I open and close the task manager.  I discovered it because I could only close the simulator via the task manager.  Then I noticed as I brought it up the task bar came up.  Everything works normally after that.  

So I'm not dead in the water, but I would like to eliminate the task manager step to turn on the sim.

Has this happened to anyone else.

They said computers would make things easier and do away with paper.  Instead they make us use twice as much paper as before and drive us nuts.

No, never had problems with Windows 10. 

Problems may occur if you do not update, or disable some services. Just always update and you are fine.

I would check if their is something running in task manager that may be causing the problem, I had a problem after shutting down P3Dv4 I found couatl was still running and I could only shut it down with task manager, removed couatl and download new and I rectified the problem.

When I bring up the task manager to start the sim nothing is in there except P3Dv3 Raymond.

I guess I'll just have to live with it.
