Just tried to enter beta - now black screen and MSFS dead!

Recommended Posts

Just a potential warning to others.   I was previousy in the beta but after getting a new PC and reinstalling MSFS, I stayed out of it for the last week.

With the release of the new SR22 I just entered the beta again via the Insider app.

All seemed to go well. Started MSFS and got an update notification for a 2GB update.

Screen went black part way through this - now whenever I launch MSFS, all I get is an immediate black screen.   Tried a dozen times.

HELP!   Anyone know hot to resolve this black screen?    I deleted my cloud saves but it hasn't helped.

My Community folder was emptied before the update and remains emptied.

Absolutely gutted!

Just resolved it by copying the below into Windows Powershell (run as admin):-

cmd.exe /C start shell:AppsFolder\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App -FastLaunch

Really strange one!   And no idea how running a fast lauch fixes it!

Brrrrrr... shivers down my spine.  I thought I was looking at a full reinstall!
