FSX SE startup time

Recommended Posts

Since MSFS was released and I bought it on Steam, I almost fly only this sim. But some times I had to run FSX SE again. Unlike before, it takes long long minutes to start, and this is not loading time. The FSX process starts, I see it in the task manager with activity from 0 to 0.4% CPU and 0% disk. I have to wait long minutes before the splash screen appears, then it is the usual loading time, which is OK.

I can't tell if this is related to the installation of MSFS, but I am sure it didn't happen before MSFS was installed.
Does any of you had the same problem?
Do you have any idea to solve it?

Thanks,
Eric

Looks like reading times or the AV acting up. If FSX is not on a SSD but a mechanical drive, have you tried defragging it?

My rig: ASUS TUF FX504GD (Intel i5 8300H @ 2.8-4.0 GHz, 8 GB DDR4-2666 RAM, Nvidia GTX 1050 2 GB, 256 GB M.2 SSD+256 GB 1 TB SATA III SSD as storage, Windows 10 Home)

Saitek X-52 as primary controller. Xbox 360 wired and eDimensional G-Pad Pro wired controllers as standby/travel.

Finally moved to P3D4.5. Also running FSX-SE, FS9 and XP11 Vulkan. Tried MSFS2020, but my rig isn't up to the task. What do I do with 4 sims now?

No, I don't think it is AV not reading times because the LED that indicates disk activity is always off, which is confirmed in the task manager by a 0% disk activity for the FSX process and globally close to 0 for the whole system.

This didn't happen before, something has changed in the launch process and I can't find what it is.

I have just done this, excluding the whole FSX folder, and it seems to work. More testing may be needed to be sure but it looks OK.

Thank you !! And congratulations for your expertise 🙂
