  1. I am sorry I missed your post. There are some things that need to be done to Windows 10. I am assuming you have version 1903 because you posted in June 2019. Please watch the following video: [EDIT: This will do much more than speed up Windows 10.]
  2. If your hardware is in good condition including your power supply and voltages and heat are well within specification the most probable cause is a conflict with another program running in the background, including a virus. If you are overclocking the computer RAM, CPU or video card I suggest you put everything back to stock settings.
  3. I enjoy the EMB505 PHENOM 300 HD series for FSX with the Navigraph extension pack, however, it is not the best transatlantic aircraft. The Embraer Legacy 500 would be a much better aircraft for long flights, and it has new avionics, much better than Carenado's recent FA50 EX for FSX/P3D. I can find the link needed for suggesting aircraft, however it requires me to link all my mail accounts, which I do not want to do. At least that is what happens to me, a page pops up stating "Welcome to Mail" and " Add your accounts to keep up to date across devices". I do not like that being forced upon me. Is there somewhere here on this forum that I can suggest the Embraer Legacy 500? https://www.magellanjets.com/embraer-legacy-500.html
  4. Thank you very much for sending me the Phenom 300 Tutorial pdf Dan
  5. HighBypass, I am very sorry that I missed your message. Wind shear can come from any direction, not just vertical. And CAT is not always verticle. FSX updates live weather every 15 minutes I believe. Anything within a map zone should be covered. It is possible that moving to a different map zone could cause problems. The latter is a code issue and I do not expect that to change, Microsoft fired the employees and shut down ACES Game Studio many years ago.
  6. My problem is Carenado EMB505 Phenom 300 HD For FSX version 2.1 crashing to desktop. Removed and reinstalled several times. Ran as administrator. AV and firewall turned off. AV is VIPRE. Computer: Windows 10 Pro 64bit, Intel i7 7700K, 32GB RAM, MSI GTX 980 Ti Lightning video card. Gigabyte Z270X-UD5 motherboard. Computer screen is 1080p resolution. I have purchased the Navigraph EMB505 Phenom 300 Extension Pack, however, I am afraid to install it until this issue is resolved. This is frustrating, it is the only Carenado product I have purchased that does not work, and I have several of their add-on aircraft. Thank you in advance for help.
  7. I see no updates to anything at those links. My problem is Carenado EMB505 Phenom 300 HD For FSX version 2.1 crashing to desktop. Removed and reinstalled several times. Ran as administrator. AV and firewall turned off. AV is VIPRE. Computer: Windows 10 Pro 64bit, Intel i7 7700K, 32GB RAM, Gigabyte Z270X-UD5 motherboard.
  8. Thank you. I was hoping there was an easy way to find it in an .ini or othr file.
  9. Is there any way I can determine how many multi-engine hours I have logged in MS-FSX? Thank You. I suppose I should have purchased a real log book. I have been flying Flight Simulator, before Microsoft [stole, I mean aquired, it] since 1986 and have never kept logs of hours flown. I have been using FSX since it came out.
  10. 8GB of system memory is the bare minimum, you are better off with 16GB. That said, you should not be running out of memory. Right click on your start button or taskbar and select Task Manager, click on the Performance tab [at the top], then left click the Memory [rectangle] on the left of the screen. In the open area of the bottom right of that screen you will see how much memory you have In use (compressed), Committed, Cached, and most importantly Available. The two most common things that cause an out of memory message is to many things running in the background, under normal use, or a virus. The following is a video explaining how to get the most out of Windows 10. Note: Although the Anniversery Edition in mentioned, it applies to all current Microsoft Windows 10 users. Also, he is using Windows 10 Pro, so, some of the screens may look a little different from yours. He does explain some differences on where things are in the non-Pro version of Win 10.
  11. Eraser74, I have used FSX since it came out. There are two things I have found that cause problems with FSX, software [add-ons] that exhibit problems because of poor code or a computer that has problems, such as a defective or weakening power supply, video card or motherboard. The latter causes problems with add-ons that introduce much more detail, they demand more from a computer and thus weak computer hardware reaches it's limit and many problems can arise. Regarding the latter issue, usually any demanding add-on will cause problems. If only one add-on is causing an issue there is a 99.9% chance it is that single add-on. Note: I started working in the computer industry over 30 years ago and have gained a great deal of experience in that field.
  12. You mentioned a regional jet. You might like a prop version, such as the Carenado King Air 350i. The following is not the best video, try to look beyond some of the things the sim pilot did: Here is another video with more navigation information. Please overlook his mistakes, I do not believe he is a real pilot:
  13. I do not acknowledge or celebrate Xmas, however, I do celebrate Christmas. Other than A2A, that are more challenging to fly, you could try this site: http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/spaceflight-dynamics-module-for-fsx.437124/
  14. In general, the last thing you installed for FSX or software you made changes to is the culprit. Hardware can cause problems like this, however, that may not be the case and will not address it.
