  1. Hi Jim...thanks for the prompt reply...and I do use and rely on Addon-Linker. (AOL)... a must-have app...I need to think a bit about how to use your information...first, I could just delete tthe Add-ON Bush trip that causes the error message...second, if just had to use that Bust Trip, etc. I could use AOL and disable all my Community folder and run it...Third, I guess I could trouble-shoot what is causing the Bush Trip to get the error message and just disable ithat add-on... do you see any other alternative avenues of approach?... Thanks for all your help...John H....
  2. I am using the current version of MSFS under W-10 on a gaming computer...lately, when I go to launch an add-on Bush Flight (or sometimes A MS Bush Flight) I get an error message directing me to the Content Manager for missing content ...when I go to the CM, there is no missing content... Anyone know what this problem is or how to fix this problem?... Any help appreciated... Thanks, John H.
  3. Just a short update...I tried just by X52 throttle combined with my Xbox controller...worked fine, though not the ideal combination...then I treid the X52 throttle with my new Thrustmaster 1600m stick and had the same old problem... I would really like to use my X52 throttle with my Thrustmaster, though the throttle on it works fine... John H.
  4. Hi all...I think I found an article that tells how to do what Frank suggested...it can be found here... https://apteryx.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360041367673-Disable-USB-Power-Management-Selective-Suspension Unfortunately, though trying all the steps, it did not cure the problem... your mileage may vary...I am thinking that DF has nailed the problem.. the latest update from MS...I guess we can wait and see...my old XBox controller still works, as does my new Logitech 3D Pro Extreme stick... still I would like the X52 to work to compare to the 3D Pro...
  5. Frank...I went to the control panel and found power management there...it was currently on high and changed it to normal...sadly, that did not solve the problem... Did I do what you were recommending?...if not, could you please explain in more detail how to do what you recommend... Thanks, John H.
  6. Hi all...thanks for the replies...Frank, I have not tried that, but will...hopefully I can figure out how to do it...will report outcome...
  7. I am running MSFS 2020 Ver 1.12.13 under W-10 on a gaming computer...my X52 Pro is several years old but is recognized by FS and I can configure it... driver version is 8.0.213.0 (I believe)...the only problem is that when I try to increase throttle on an aircraft, the engine(s) die(s)...I think this problem began recently and I can't find the solution...even reset the X52 to its default settings in FS and that did not help... nor did reinstalling the driver... Any help appreciated... John H.
  8. In my troubleshooting, I also found the Hong Kong Int'l addon caused a problem...I believe it's called "VHHH-scenery"... I'd like to highly recommend the "MSFS AddOn Linker"... found here: https://flightsim.to/file/1572/msfs-addons-linker Once properly setup, it greatly simplifies troubleshooting the MSFS Community folder...you can selectively turn off and on the contents of the Community folder without having to delete items therein or use "dummy" Community folders......
  9. Once I updated to MSFS 1.12.13.0, the VHHH addon caused loading problems and had to delete it to get the sim to load and run
  10. Wow, DBoy....great eye/find!...that mod was what was causing all my problems...thanks for reporting it!.... Happy Holidays to all... John H.
  11. "Thanks Fielder for the prompt and detailed reply... will try your solution and report back...think I even saw something in the update install about that...humm Happy Holidays! John H." Thanks a bunch Fielder (and all)... this trick fixed the loading problem... now to figure out the gremlin that caused the problem...thanks to all the others about the debugging ideas....I do not have the San Juan Is scenery... Happy Holidays to all... John H
  12. Thanks Fielder for the prompt and detailed reply... will try your solution and report back...think I even saw something in the update install about that...humm Happy Holidays! John H.
  13. Running (or trying to) 1.12.13 on powerful gaming computer under W-10 (fully update) ....Store install initially... downloaded 1.12.13 yesterday afternoon... the D/L hung halfway through...I exited the program, restarted, and the D/L resumed and installed (I think) successfully...started MSFS and it eventually loaded...there was a long lag somewhere that I did not pinpoint.... This morning tried to load 1.12.13....it now hangs on the "New Activities" page...before the upgrade to 1.12.13 MSFS ran perfectly... Any help appreciated... Thanks, John H.
  14. After a little research, found that the most recommended first fix/check was to check your firewall and virus protection... sure enough, it was one of them...a 30G update ensued... be patient...takes awhile...
  15. Hummm...Looked around on-line...there apparently is a new Xbox app for Windows 10...I downloaded it, installed and logged in...launched the program in usual fashion... got the same old error message...tried off-line and it seemed to work and want me to configure the Sim again...did not reconfigure but launched a flight and asked for live weather and got it...does that mean I'm live again?...don't have time to reconfigure right now, but will do so and report...really weird... not sure I fully understand what's going on... John H.
