Having problems with your Microsoft Flight Simulator X for Windows ?

FSX NOT Responding

\015 I am at wits end. I have been using FSX for about 6 months. Then 2 wks ago, I crashed my plane on landing (too hard) and the system locked up. I stopped the computer (after about 2 hours of no response) and restarted it. Then I got the first screen then a 'Program Not responding' message when I try to close it (even when I left the software on overnight). I unin stalled the software and re-installed it along with SP1 and 2. When I start the program the first screen comes up along with 'Generating Scenery File Indexes' and 'Building Database for Scenerey File' and then the software locks up again. CAN you offer any solutions????\015

Answers :

My IT guy found the solution on the German site. Apparently I need to rename my Logbook.bin file as the reinstall has created a new one and cannot pick which one to use. So I renamed it Logbook1.bin. Fortunately it kept all my rewards but lost all my logbook hours. Apparently my old logbook was corrupt but all my rewards remain as thse are in a different file. I guess my logbook caused the original problem but before I knew that I had already un and reinstalled the software. I think that perhaps I could just have creartted a new Logbook.bin file and removed the old one but I won't rry that now as it is working.
\015\012I'd also like to thank Dantech for his input but had already had it working before I saw his post

I'm sorry to hear about the frustrating problem you have been having. The first thing I would think to suggest is that you uninstall the program BUT you need to clean your registry before you reinstall the game. There maybe corrupt registry entry's that are preventing the game from starting up.

You can download a good registry cleaner for free following this link

After you clean your registry
open your C:/ drive in MY Computer /Program Files
Make sure the folder for the game is completely gone...

Reinstall the Game....

Post back if you are still having the same problem and I will be happy to assist you further. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
