[RESOLVED] Crash To Desktop After update

Postby smx55 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 11:40 pm

I did the update 4.1 and after I kept getting a missing scenery CFG. Couldn't fix the problem so I did a full uninstall and fresh install......now it fixed the scenery cfg, but now once it loads at the main screen it crashes to the desktop...no warning or error. Vehicle selection is blank. No addons have been installed since the fresh install.

I have tried the fresh install like 3 times, and I did follow the instruction as to how to uninstall correctly. Any ideas as to what my be wrong? Thanks

Hello smx55

Just to confirm, Did you also delete the 3 generated folders when you Uninstalled Prepar3D ? If not please see the link below for steps to automatically remove these folders

After you complete this launch Prepar3D and test


Let us know how you get on and if needed we can take more steps
