Can't get past the last loading screen

Are you on Steam or Microsoft Store version? Microsoft Store.

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it? No.

Brief description of the issue: When loading any flight, I can’t get past the last loading screen. The blue bar pretty much fills up (or almost fills up) but then nothing more happens. I’ve tried leaving it on for hours. It’s not going anywhere.

Provide Screenshot(s)/video(s) of the issue encountered: Not relevant.

Detail steps to reproduce the issue encountered: Try to start the simulator with any plane, anywhere in the world.

Build Version # when you first started experiencing this issue: I’ve experienced this error from time to time. I’ve had some run ins with it maybe a year ago, and then it went away. I can’t remember what I did, or if I indeed did do anything special.
