When I go into FSX Flight Planner, as soon as I choose my origin and destination and Find Route, when I try to save the Flight plan FSX locks up and I have to restart. This never happened when I was running Windows 7 but happens almost all the time now that I have upgraded to Windows 10 even when I run FSX as administrator...
Encountering a freeze in FSX's Flight Planner post-upgrade to Windows 10 can indeed be frustrating. Fortunately, there are several steps we can take to troubleshoot and potentially resolve this issue. Since you've already attempted running FSX as an administrator, let's explore further measures.
Firstly, it's imperative to ensure that FSX is fully compatible with Windows 10. Compatibility issues are common when transitioning between operating systems. Here's a structured approach:
It's also beneficial to perform a clean boot of your system to rule out conflicts with background applications. If the problem persists, consider reaching out to the community forums or technical support for your graphics card or Windows.
For complex issues like these, a step-by-step elimination process is often the most effective way to pinpoint the exact cause and find a resolution. If you provide more specific details about your system configuration and any error messages encountered, I can offer more targeted advice.
Remember, while FSX is a seasoned simulator, its immersive experience remains unparalleled, and resolving these hiccups is well worth the effort. Should you have any further questions or require additional assistance, feel free to ask.
