Crashing to desktop - no log / errors

Hi all,

Have looked through a lot (hours of reading/ browsing etc) of solutions and absolutely nothing has worked …
Had a few days of no problems - 8hr+sessions, no issues at all.

Then my game was CTD after a flight in TBM & tried Citation between UK & Iceland. Replicated 3 times (in real time) crashing at the exact same point on final to Keflavik.

Now this started happening the day before yesterday - read that MSI afterburner caused a few issues, so reset everything to Default, and stopped it launching on startup. Turned off all overlays and basically everything and anything I could in the background. Tried with usual (slightly higher than High) high and low settings. Still crashed, no logs. Verified game files on Steam etc etc

After the patch it still happened so I (reluctantly) deleted the install and started fresh, and now I can’t even load a flight. It crashes as soon as the blue loading bar comes up to load into a flight.

Have been out of the sim game for a long time (prefer Heli’s and very interested in what’s to come) and now I am regretting forking out on the premium version of this… Anyone experiencing the same?

Any help would be much appreciated!!

System info is

Ryzen 5 3600x
MSI Tomahawk X570
GTX 1060 6GB
32GB 3600mhz RAM
Installed on M.2 1TB PCIE4.0

There are quite a few threads on the forums where people are reporting crash to desktops and it seems there is no one single cause. Reports indicate that the ‘fix’ for one user doesn’t work for another user etc. Tracking down the cause is very time consuming. I suggest maybe using the forum search function to find other threads for this issue. If you wanted to be brave, even though it is time consuming, you could take the plunge and go ahead and reinstall windows. It might actually save you time in the long run. However, it doesn’t guarantee that it will solve your problem if the CTD is caused by hardware weaknesses (unlikely but possible) or driver issues.

To get you started, here are two links (Link1, Link2) to existing mega-threads about CTDs.

It would also be a good idea to check out the known issues post to see if you are affected by one of those.

For advanced troubleshooting, if none of the other fixes seem to work, then there may also be some useful information contained in this detailed thread.

Experiencing the same - consistent crashes around Keflavik (BIKF) as the terminal loads in. Reproducible 100% of the time. Also crashes on loading a flight originating from there.

Confirmed by several friends - they all crash to desktop around Keflavik.

This alienates at least your Icelandic user-base :slight_smile:

Thanks for the links!

Of all the airport’s I could pick… Absolutely unreal. I am currently loaded up and doing another flight to see if I have any other issues.

So glad it isn’t just me.

Just tried - the CTD seems to be fixed.

Good for you. I never had crashes to Desktop… until… now it happens all the time on my system :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Hallo Zusammen, hatte die gleichen Probleme wie ihr alle.
Bei mir hat folgendes geholfen : Ihr müsst die Flightsimulator exe suchen ( bei mir Dieser PC/Daten(D:)/SteamLibary/steamapps/common/MicrosoftFlightSimulator
Flightsimulator .exe rechte Maustaste anklicken
Vollbildoptimierung deaktivieren = Häkchen setzen
Hohe DPI-Einstellungen ändern klicken
Hohe DPI- Skalierung überschreiben = Häkchen setzen
Skalierung durchgeführt von = muss auf Anwendung stehen.
OK dann Übernehmen Fertig.
Mit diesen 2 Häkchen sagt ihr eurem Computer das er die ganze Kraft an den Flugsimulator übertragen soll
Bin jetzt den ganzen Tag durch Europa geflogen ( mit der unstabilen Version vom A320nx )
nicht einmal ins Desktop abgestürzt.
Habe im Flugsimulator alles auf Ultra gestellt = kein Ruckeln kein Zucken alles flüssig.
Mir haben die 2 Häkchen super geholfen.
Probierts mal aus - man kann nichts verkehrt machen

You can also do the same in Windows 10 settings > Gaming > Game Bar > Graphic Settings (text link at upper right)

Then add MSFS to use High Performance with your GPU selected.

Irgendwie ist der Text nicht vollstaendig angezeigt :
Hohe DPI Skalierung aendern
Hohe DPI Skalierung ueberschreiben = Häkchen setzen und auf Anwendung gehen
dann OK
