    FSX:SE not starting up

    Looks like steam edition isn't going to work for me so I've just bought a copy of FSX on DVD to try out instead. I hope this works

    FSX:SE not starting up

    Yeah, I've just reinstalled FSX (deleted the 5 folders, cleaned registry, ran virus scan and optimized HDD). It still isn't working. Edit: I just realized I haven't rebooted my PC yet. I'll reboot and see if it makes a difference.

    FSX:SE not starting up

    I did that before installing but I'm still getting the same error. I also made sure to clean up the registry. Should I just reinstall Windows?

    FSX:SE not starting up

    Yeah, I think it's better to just reinstall too at this point. I've tried reinstalling 5 times (making sure to remove all 5 folders) but have never cleaned the registry. I tried a fresh reinstall last night (including deleting the 5 folders) and when I verified the integrity of the game files, steam found 1 corrupted file. Seems weird to me that a file would be corrupted from a fresh install. I'll try reinstalling (making sure to delete the 5 folders and clean the registry) now.

    I wasn't able to find the logbook.bin or the saved flights folder. I'm not sure why this is happening. I've probably screwed up my game now.

    I've just done it. All I could find was this: https://imgur.com/a/p0LvBqB (sorry if offsite links are not allowed, I'm not sure how to add in pictures on this forum).

    @188AHC @johncott I've run into another issue. I have no logbook file, and I have no 'Flight Simulator X' folder in My Documents. What do I do now?

    Forgot to add that I'm running Windows 10 Version 1803 (if that helps)

  13. Hi all, First time poster here. Back in October 2018 I started getting an error out of the blue every time I started up FSX:SE. It says "Flight Simulator was unable to load some program files and will now exit". I have tried to reinstall 4 times (making sure to clear every single trace of FSX:SE that I could when uninstalling) and I've verified file integrity in Steam twice. No issues have shown up when verifying file integrity. At first I thought it was a corrupted file but from what I've seen I'm not sure it is that anymore. Anyone know what could be causing this and how to fix this? Thanks in advance.
