I’ve just given up trying various solutions to identifying the cause of the CTDs that I’ve experienced since the release of SU5 and installed Windows 11 (without retaining any of my existing Programs or Settings).

After completing the OS install, the Intel motherboard and NVidia drivers, I’ve only installed Steam, MSFS2020 (Steam Edition) and Orbx Central. The MSFS re-install was fairly painless as the content is on a separate drive and was found when I re-installed the executable that was downloaded via Steam.

So far after an hour flying before adding back all the WU content and the contents of my Community folder and a couple of hours since adding everything back in, all is well :slight_smile:

I was able to complete a 1 hour 17 min flight around Puget Sound with nVidia driver 457.30 and this 45 fps limit in nVidia control panel.

I have been having CTD at ~ 10 minutes during approximately 95% of my flights in this area prior to this setting so I’ll keep my fingers crossed and report my findings after more testing.

2nd flight - CTD at 10 minutes. One notable difference between the first (successful) flight and this one is the first was free flight (no flight plan). This one had a flight from KOLM (parking 3) to 21W. As on numerous prior occasions, the sim CTD in the vicinity of 06WN (near Yelm Washington).

[Edit] 3rd flight - CTD 1 minute after takeoff at KOLM, no flight plan entered. Sadly 45ps limit appears to not improve CTD situation for me.

I decided to try the sim without Navigraph yesterday as Zendesk mentioned it was one of the causes of crashes, after 5 and a half hours I was thinking they were right and then I had another CTD! :frowning_face:

Up until SU5 I had very few crashes, now its just a nightmare…

I have Capture One software installed on my PC. For me the solution was discovered here:

CTD caused by Capture One 20 codec - Bugs & Issues / CTDs - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums

Hopefully this helps someone else. Perhaps there is other software that is causing MSFS issues.

I gave up. I’m extremely angry and frustrated. Tried a lot of different stuff. None worked. I never had a CTD or other difficulties with MSFS 2020, but since the update to only CTD’s. I’ve used a lot of different software and games the last 15 years and I had never a program causing so much trouble and headache over a longer period of time - now 2 months. Only CTD’s. So frustrating. I switched back to xplane 11. Not the same beautiful rendering and graphics, but at least it’s running stable - always!


Did you check the disk you have it installed on is NTFS, and not exFAT? That seems to be be a hard blocker for users.

Repeated CTD since SU5! First flight in the latest update , CTD when taking off? This machine runs the graphics without a hitch! Previous update 1 out of three had CTD. Overall, sim works great until CTD?

RTX 3090
Factory clocked

With the 3090 in some situations they have been just running too well … I would attempt limiting the frame rate in nVidia settings to I guess like 60fps with that monster?

Hi, yes it’s NTFS since the beginning. I also reinstalled MSFS 2020 twice… and experimented with various settings.

I should add that I started with MSFS 95, and also used various other flight simulators like for example Lock On and I’ve been using xplane since version 9. But nothing beats MSFS 2020…well, not in a good way at the moment! All these flight simulators had maybe 3-4 times a CTD in a year - at maximum! But not constantly like MSFS 2020 which ruins everything.

There are a couple of FAQ’s you should probably look over. They list some common possibilities, as well as a list of software known to cause issues for some users.

Hi there,
I had the same situation with this last update (no CTD’s before and now several, every 20 min or less) ,but yesterday I changed the virtual memory (something I red on this forum) and now I’m back to the past, meaning flying 1 hour or more (hand flying and autopilot) and landing the aircraft🙂 Have you tried doing this?

I assume you had too small a cache before as normally it’s best to put Windows in charge because it can expand as neccesary. However if you are going to stick with a fixed one then change the initial size to at least the recommended as this should keep Windows happy until it actually wants more.


Indeed too small!!! but before I didn’t have any problems with CTD’s, perhaps it changed itself when I connected something ??? I don’t know much (or anything) about this matter (first time I looked at this was yesterday…), now is running well, but yes thank you, I’m going to change it to the other option below “system manage size” at the end of the day.

Guys - I keep getting low FPS and stuttering after SU6. And worst is that it crashed a couple of times when I’m about to touchdown on the runway during landing, ■■■ is going on?

I’ve been setting my cache files since Windows98, I do not want file system allocation going on while I’m gaming. I also want to dictate which drive it is to begin with. I had an older smaller SATA SSD so I made that my cache and that’s all it does. I also have 64gb of RAM so the odds of it being actually used should be quite low.

I will say since Win98 I have changed the recipe, back then it used to be 3 times your RAM, today 32gb seems plenty.

a note: in this case is your pagefile setting is waste of free disc space :)… 1024 / 4096 is sufficent…

“system managed” should works fine for users with 32GIG RAM… but never disable pagefile.

All right, I will change the settings and make pagefile available (I don’t even know what that is…) but I think it was already disabled when I opened that menu…I took a print screen of everything but it’s on the pc, I will take a look later. Thank you very much :slightly_smiling_face:

in easy words: pagefile , also called windows virtual memory, extend your available amount of memory if not enough physical RAM exists ( not exactly, but just in easy words ). Also in case you have 128GIG RAM, this pagefile should never completly disabled ( its the fallback and some hundred MB are needed allways. For dump creation the pagefile is also important ).
