MSFS Freezes after hitting "Fly" / followed ALL checklists / out of patience

This started happening randomly last week but now it’s every flight.

Spent 2 hours this morning trying to load into different planes in different parts of the world.

I have no new add ons and have removed the gotfriends mod. I just rebooted checked for updates, made sure MSFS was excluded from virus checs etc… loaded into the menu, chose a flight and frozen halfway throug the loading screen.

Should I completely blow away MSFS 2020 and reinstall the ■■■■ thing?


I am also having the same issue and followed all the troubleshooting

I followed this found on another part of the forum;

Input the following into the CMD promt

Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /checkhealth

Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /scanhealth

Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth

sfc /scannow

Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore

Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

This has fixed the issue for me
