Patch 1.8.3.0 installed. Now no controls for aircraft

I installed the latest 1.8.3.0 patch using the Store. Update went smoothly, no errors. Load into the sim and fire up the TBM as expected at a parking spot at my normal starting airport.

  1. The plane loaded with engines, not cold & dark as expected when loading into an airport parking spot
  2. I could not control any of the control inputs to the aircraft. Pitch, roll, yaw, throttle, trim, nothing worked. Tried default controls, loaded the C172 and the DA-40 and all experienced the same issues. No cold & dark, and no control.

So I’ve now tried a repair - no luck. Now running reset. Will see how this goes. If fail, I’ll have to do a full uninstall and re-install. This kind of thing can’t happen from a patch install. Re-installing 100+GB after a patch, not cool.
