I started playing this game in around September/October of 2020. I downloaded the game via steam soon after buying a brand new PC with more then enough to handle the game on high/ultra graphic settings (Details below). And put in a little over 100 hours of gameplay. One day while playing, it randomly crashed to desktop. I read through multiple suggestions on google and a lot of forums and I cant seem to resolve the issue. I’ve even held out for two major updates hoping it would resolve the issue and no dice. I held off on resorting to forums but I really want to play this game more and have no where else to turn. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I also want to add that I followed a thread on here from a couple months ago about issues with Steam Cloud issues. I followed the steps and still didn’t work. However, one thing I noticed was the game would work if I disconnected the internet. Still stuck
I am from the US so that pack is the default. I looked up the FAQ and I tried to remove the US language pack but was greyed out. So I tried installing another language (thinking I had to have at least one installed) and still would not let me remove the US language pack. But I don’t see how this would be an issue when I can play the game in offline mode?. Also I saw that thread on the anti virus, I don’t have any special anti virus like bull guard, so that couldn’t be it. Any other ideas? Those two error codes seem to be common in these threads, but I their resolutions haven’t seemed to help with mine.
Defender already allows Microsoft Flight simulator:
Is there another service that is used that needs allowed?
As for the C++ that was one of the first things I tried. I tried doing it several times and no luck.
And as for my internet, I did a speed test and I’m running around 430 Mbps. I don’t think that speed would be an issue. I am not running a VPN or anything special. Pretty basic setup as far as internet goes.
I meant also exclusion for scanning ( Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings > Manage settings > Exclusions ).
I asked about VPN because the idea is about “network relevant issue”. Internet “speed” is not what I have in mind, more a connection lost thing. But as said : a guess which may be completely wrong in your case.
Have no other idea for the moment as to “play a bit” with the game settings… disable some multiplayer features, etc…
There are other issues with these ucrt…dll ( e.g. sound driver ), but I assume its not relevant for you.
I really hope someone can help. I REALLY want to play this again. I even went as far is completely reinstalling windows just to get this to work. I see other topics in here that I have tried, and still nothing.
strange is just that issue happens only in case you are “online”…
Some users helped to start the game with “-FastLaunch” option. But would have no glue what this should have to do with “online or not”
If we focus on “online” then may be the xbox login should be checked ( does eg. these xbox app works fine ? ). Or you have really an issue with a user setting which cause that. We had a thread about a while ago in special also for steam users “how to remove”. But I thought you tried this already ?
You could try installing the xbox app (Xbox app for Windows 10 | Xbox), signing in with the account you use for MSFS, and checking that the MSFS digital ownership is present, and services are all working ok.
