No problem. I began having CTD either in the menu or a few mins after beginning a flight. It was flagging the ntdll.dll file in Windows event viewer. I went thru the suggestions I aforementioned and it wasn’t until I did the Windows refresh it resolved the issue. Just finished another 40 min flight with no CTD (Grants Pass, Or. - Crescent City, Ca.)
The jury is still out, but there’s every indication (3 days in a row without a CTD) that you’re procedure fixed my MSFS problem after many weeks of the frustration of intermittent random crashes around the ntdll.dll. So, thank you!!!
Thank you udidwht … that’s also partially solve my many CTD !
I find 3 corrupted files with the line sfc/scannow
Me too from january I have multi CTD every day, 2 … 3 by day,
With your method, now I’m not CTD in Menu !
For my other CTD in the game, …
I see in my config windows ( graphics settings ) an section, “choose an application to set the preferences” / “Microsoft store application” / and find Microsoft Simulator setting on “Hight Performance” !
This apparently makes the simulator completely unstable! I deleted this profile and left windows managed, the game may be a little less efficient but I found all the stability and no more CTD now !!!
I come from 2, 3 CTD by day to 0 CTD now from many day …
I also find a another problem with the file “Content.xml”
( Packages/Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8…/LocalCache )
If you regularly add or remove content from the Community folder, it seems this file does not update correctly ! Simply by deleting this file, MSFS recreates a brand new and correct one the next time the game is launched !
Now, not have any CTD from 1 week … ( Sorry for English )
From yesterday update, that’s again CTD CTD CTD in the first 5 minute after lauch the sim …
Before this update, the method descipt here run well and solve my CTD, but from this world Update 8, that’s starts again !
How do you clear the direct x cache ? ( My comunity folder are empty and no content in the MSFS cache data area )
Heya, I jumped in this thread to say a huge ‘thank you’ for the tip of using sfc /scannow (I have Win10)
In the past week I started to have CTDs almost every time I fired up MSFS, after months of playing the sim (since January 2022) with no CTDs
After several trials with no result (switching off XMP in bios, changing the wifi adapter, empty Community folder, etc) I found this thread and, as first try, did sfc/scannow and CTDs seem to have gone
I am back after 2 hours of several flights, Maverik races and stratosphere, bush trip in Italy, free flight over dense cities in aerobatic to stress the sim … no CTD!
Crossing fingers it will continue to work, what surprised me is that sfc /scannow has found and repaired several corrupted files, still I am 100% not to have messed with Win10 … how the hell these files were damaged is beyond my understanding
about sfc /scannow i never believe is possible to be exist any corruption files if not lightning hit the pc or emp bomb will explode or whatever it is i believe even if it happens it’s not will ony ctd it’s kill system. but… couple a month ago i use this sfc /scannow and it’s find some… so i use this some time for conservative idiots like me with stone brain only…
