FSX SE Not Starting

Recommended Posts

Went to run FSX after a fairly long absence and presented with this message when trying to run the game:

https://ibb.co/jybnTs4]FSX-not-running.jpg

Not physically changed anything with the install since last running the game, other than any official Steam updates.

I initally verified file integrity through Steam, no change then did a complete uninstall (including deletion of all subsidiary folders) followed by reinstall but getting the same result.

Any guidance on fixing this greatly appreciated.

If i am not mistaken, simply uninstalling does not remove flight sim's files. You have to manually go into the c drive --> program files ---> steam ---> steam apps ---> delete fsx

Even that does not remove everything, there are files in the c drive --> users as well, but I am too scared to mess with those. But thats more for temporary game states, settings, plane that loads in by default, etc. You could mess up your c drive not knowing what you are doing there. Top suggestion is a safe bet though.

A corrupt logbook file will cause FSX to not start.

Turned out there was a rogue multi core line in the Steam launcher parameters which I don’t remember putting there. Deleted that to blank and FSX now launches and runs okay, well as much as it does on modern hardware and Windows 10!
