Hello, since January i cannot run the sim. After clicking “Launch” button in MS Store nothing happens.
Sometimes it starts but it’s very random and let’s say it’s 1 time within 30 tries. When it finally starts and I quit it to check if it will start again it does not start anymore.
I think it happened after the latest updated of the sim or after installing 20H2 windows update and it’s additional stuff(yeah, i did not update windows for a while).
I have latest updates of windows and M$ store.
What I’ve tried:
store: terminate repair reset
xbox: terminate repair reset uninstall
MSFS: terminate repair reset uninstall
Gaming services: terminate repair reset
Firewall: switched off
AV: turned off
Reverting windows updates
Reinstalling microsoft store
Full reinstall of the sim:
** game on drive C:\ and data on other drive
** on other drive game and data
After i click the “launch” button, sometimes i see the process in task manager but the games does not start and has 6000 K of memory usage when normally it has 300 000 K / 1 000 000 K.
I’ve read some topics that issue can be related to windows 20H2 update, but also people were mentioning that gaming services are the reason.
I have no idea what is wrong and how i can fix it. Can anyone share some advice?
The worst thing is that when it starts it happens randomly so i cannot provide/use some steps to be able to always run the sim
I wrote that it seems, but it was just a good luck, after the reinstall sim Has started, then ive Turned off the pc. After running it back again sim still worked. Ive wrote the post, but later that day it has started again to not Launch.
I5 4690k gtx960 16gb DDR3 win10.
Do you need something else?
Did that, but it did not help I had pagefile set to “system manage”. I’ve changed it on C:\ initial size 4000MB and max size 25000MB. Made a restart, at first try MSFS process appeared in task manager but with only mentioned previously 6000K memory without launching the game, made a restart second time and this time nothing happend, no process no sim launch nothing.
True sorry for that.
What i can say more. I’ve tried to run msfs from xbox app, from start menu, nvidia experiance and from store. In all cases behavior is always the same.
I’ve checked also event viewer → administrative events. I’ve found some issues which might be related:
EventID 10016: SID (S-1-5-21-1559981577-3067427662-2071518969-1001) from address LocalHost (użycie LRPC) running in the application container Microsoft.GamingApp_2102.1001.17.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe SID (S-1-15-2-1723189366-2159580849-2248400763-1481059666-1951766778-2756563051-3565589001). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.
EventID 7011: A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the WSearch service.
i cannot find it right now but i had something like: csrss.exe process is blocking flighsimulator.exe process.
Other side effects from not being able to launch the sim:
when i try to lunch it with MS Store and it won’t, sometimes task manager goes out of order and is not responding
when i try to lunch it with MS Store and it won’t, when i move to start menu and click msfs icon it does not respond, just like it would be disabled, start menu works well but after clicking the msfs icon it does not even collapse
PS: i have the sim launcher on SSD c:\ drive with 125GB of free space, and the whole ASOBO data on HDD f:\ with 2TB of free space
and to be more clear, i did not have any issues with the sim since i’ve been participating in beta from may 2020. I did not change any hardware too.
Only thing that i’ve made are the updates: sim, windows and drivers.
I did some cleaning on C:\ drive but it was before the clean install of msfs which i’ve done 11 days ago (my quoted post) and shouldn’t affect the sim(just a removal of old files/leftovers).
Oh and maybe one thing more, i’ve encountered some search and indexing problems after windows update. Start menu showed me few times that indexing is off, but i’ve fixed it and now i do not have this issue anymore.
You mean to:
Uninstall msfs with apps and features and then go to regeddit find flightsimulator entries and remove all of them yes? Later Store->download and install. And its all about the game 1.3gb not the data 130gb from asobo yes?
