FSX Slow Start in Win 8.1


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

 

I'm running FSX in Win 8.1 and it takes over a minute to open. If I have the Task Manager running it shows that FSX is "not responding" for most of that time.

 

Does anyone know what is going on here, and if it can be fixed?

 

Thanks

This is not uncommon. I'd say most users' simulators take between 20-60 seconds to load. If you have a large number of add-ons that get initiated when FSX does, including a large library of aircraft, then it can take longer.

 

As far as I know, there's no issue with FSX taking a minute or so to boot. Just let it do its thing until you see the main screen has loaded.

It helps for sure. Dramatically reduced my load time. Unfortunately I have so much add on [stuff] that my FSX takes average 4.5 minutes to load, even with an SSD
