I spent two hours online with McAfee. They never did fix it. I had sent a zendesk report in, and got a response back. And just sent them some additional information. For me, it’s unfortunate that both the flightsim exec and the gamingservices exec are behind “closed” folders, and I’m not inclined to go through changing permissions, as that sometimes screws up other things. I did find a resolution myself and added the gamingservices exec to my real time scanning exclusion list (that’s not easy either since it’s behind another “closed” folder. But I know a way to get to the file without changing permissions, so I was able to add that file and now the sim starts. Still think there’s something about the file they need to change so McAfee doesn’t have an issue with it (or at least it being behind a closed folder).
Anyway, working now, so I’ll move on from this issue.
For me, since yesterday the game starts with great difficulty and then a warning appears saying that my configuration is not sufficient (whereas before, it worked well). I use Kaspersky as a firewall, I added exceptions for MSFS and gamingservices without changing anything. I reported the problem to Zndesk without response. I checked all the components of my computer and tonight I’m really desperate…
Don’t work for me
