Looks like your garden variety crash (Exception code: 0xc0000005). About the only things you can do are to round up the usual suspects. Clear your Community folder, turn off overclocking if you have it, maybe reduce your graphics settings. Also if you’ve downloaded the Beta, there is a problem with SimConnect and some other behind-the-scenes stuff that’s causing CTDs.

Well, I just deleted (moved) my community folder, and it still crashes…

Live Traffic off, Live weather off, deleted cache, pc running at default in BIOS, latest Nvidia drivers, latest updates from windows, re-installed the VC_Redist, ran the directX redist, ran scf scannow. EVERY other single game I have runs flawlessly

I am at a total loss here, the sim was JUST working the other night, Thursday flew a complete flight from airport to airport…

unbelievable that this is such a problem and nothing seems to get done about it.

SORRY, but I’m just frustrated at this point, I have wasted hours and hours today alone on this.

I’m going to try deleting the content.xml next, if that doesn’t work I’m just going to uninstall

Try disableling live traffic.

I actually already have live traffic and live weather both disabled.

I just deleted my content.xml just now as I found that might be the issue on a Bing search, I’m going to try again,

SON OF A GUN!!

It worked!! I’m on the runway right now!!

lol, I wonder what happened to my content.xml? Could it be because I updated one of my airplanes? because that’s all I did.

::::::::::::::::::Update:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Anyways, I just flew 2 perfect flights!! with live traffic!! so I’m gonna call this a win!

for anyone else who wants to try this (PS: YOU are on your own) I went here:

“C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\EXE.xml”

and just deleted the content.xml, and let the sim remake it.

good luck!

I had exact same problem and it worked. Thanks for sharing fix. :grinning:
