My experience may help you. First I made a client and content update to 5.2, it was bad, got DXGI errors every session and few other issues like effects not getting installed, very strange. So decided  to make a fresh install deleting every p3d folder as described in p3d's PDF. All fixed for me. So may be you could try this, hope it helps. (I'm with GTX 1080 Ti though)

I only deleted the P3d.cfg and the shaders, but installed all three components (complete P3d install) - maybe will try again and delete all dedicated folders.

Heck of a lot more than two days amigo. Try two weeks and a lot of hair pulling if I had any to pull. The client, content, scenery works a treat for me.

I gurantee you there will still be plenty of posts in 2 weeeks time, mentioing black squares, shaders buggered, sims that dont start,ai proformance issues etc etc etc.

I rather spend 2 weeks to have a nice fresh install for the next year until 5.3 or whatever is next  than all of the above issues.  just saying....

I wonder if issue is related to AMD card. I am having very similar issue, basic planes install , complex planes ctd every tiime. I am using amd rx580 card. I also have a  windowed mode issue, The planes always spawn iin windowed mode. I installed client ,content and scenery, reinstalled client and deleted shaders folder again.

I believe I found my solution - I ticked in the P3d shadow settings "particles" on. When I disable this option, no Device Hung so far.

I thought it was vegetation that was the issue?

No, vegetation ticked is ok. Only when "particles" are enabled I get the device hung immediately.

Seriously done a lot of tidying up, loading, reloading and reinstalling a variety of files fo 5.2 (wasted a day it seems). Narrowed down the problem to three areas so

1. Anybody had any issues with FSL Spotlights and 5.2. For older models it appears to crash the sim newer ones not at all. That is removing the spotlights ini stopped the CTD for that model only. Why one model and textures is ok but another results in a CTD with FSl spotlight ini is unknown at the moment. EA and the dynamic lighting causing a clash?

2. Not sure why but some older sound files pre V5 (some back to MS2004) that played ok in FSX and 5.1 now seem unstable in 5.2 reverting to an alternate sound package, fixed some issues here. I know there are changes to 5.2 and the way it is handling sound. 

3. Still have a mysterious hide and seek issues with one addon - picked up by P3D and allowed - but will not appear in the vehicle menu even though the previous sim load, there it was and working?

As you will have guessed these are all older models that have been reworked first into FSXA and then into P3DV5 - so can of worms for these really.

I did a total uninstall and reinstalled using the P3D one-stop installer and it seems to have worked...thank you!

5.2 is broken. This is what I get with the PMDG 777. Also, frame rates are so low that I can't do anything (I can't even pan the camera). I uninstalled client, content and scenery and reinstalled.

The solution was posted above. You need to delete your ShaderHLSL folder and then reinstall the client. Basically, you have incompatible shaders and you need to clear them out so the 5.2 client can install the new defaults.

Is this your recommendation because the ShadersHLSL folder could have been modified by some third party software, thus leaving spurious  shader files in there after uninstalling the Client?
