P3D startup in endless loop

Recommended Posts

After installing an additional SDD and replacing the GPU, I deleted the P3D.cfg, scenery.cfg, and shader files expecting P3D to rebuild them and starting afresh.  

What's happening now is P3D gives me a dialog box saying, "WidevieW.  Registration information not found or corrupted.  The application will try to contact a server to confirm license information."

My only option is to click on "OK" which results in the little blue circle endless chasing its tail as if perhaps P3D is doing something.  I walked away to run an errand, came back, and it continues.  I shut down the PC altogether, yet when I turn it back on, P3D automatically re-starts and I'm back at the same place.  I open Task Manager and P3D doesn't even show up in the task list.

How do I move on from this?

Uninstall and reinstall your Client and see what that gives you.

To stop the automatic reopening cycle, reboot the PC by opening a command window and entering the command "shutdown /r /t 0" (without the quotes, and that's a zero not the letter O)

I'd also uninstall/reinstall WideView...looks like the new hardware has invalidated the license key in the registry.
