Black screen when starting P3D4.4

Postby geejeetje » Sat Mar 02, 2019 5:47 pm

Good afternoon,

Since a couple of weeks I have the following problem: if I want to start P3D, the program will remain in a black screen. I have tried to solve this in various ways, but without success:
- re-installing P3D v4.4
- deleting scenery.cfg
- removal of addons (both scenery and aircraft)
For example, if I have removed scenery.cfg, then Prepar3D will start up properly. But when I close and restart (even without adding scenery), the same problem arises.

How can I solve this?

Thanks in advance,
