Hi Richard,do you use any add-ons? Disable your DLL.XML and your EXE.XML (both are located in the same folder like your FSX.cfg and the EXE.XML doesn't exist by default) and test only with default airplanes.Did you install the latest graphics card drivers from the Nvidia homepage? And try the windowed mode, if you are using the fullscreen mode.

It could be trying to go into full screen mode.....try clicking on the taskbar icon to give focus and pressing alt-enter which may bring it back into windowed mode.

I had the same problem...not sure what caused it, but it appears that the fsx.cfg file got corrupt. I deleted and let program recreate....everything worked afterwards. Be aware, any tweaks will obviously be lost...but if you are using sp2, there should be too many to recreate anyways!

Your idea appears to be the winner Nils.I already had exe.dll disabled. I disabled dll.dll (renamed it) launched FSX and it now works perfectly.The dll.dll has four entries. Three regarding the SDK and FSUIPC.What now? Delete the dll.dll file and let FSX rebuild? No issue re-installing FSUIPC. I have saved a copy of the FSUIPC.cfg.I did change back to full screen once FSX started but that does not appear to have been the problem.REgards,Richard

I would only delete the FSUIPC entry in the dll.xml and also all FSUIPC files in the modules folder and then i would reinstall the latest version of FSUIPC (4.20). And better don't use old config files for FSUIPC. I hope this solves your problem.
