Airport Location Issues

Postby MACHAVIA » Tue Jun 26, 2018 1:25 pm

Having problems with the above and really need your expert help to resolve, I have tried even reinstalling P3D and running the repair utility all to no avail although on completion of repair or re install it says successful?

The system is closing down when I select different aircraft or different locations to fly from, It seems that only airports in USA will load, I load the default and have tried to change location and or A/C from the default, any other countries and their airports will not work, they attempt to load but "stick" eventually switching off ie PrePar shuts down.

I have run the repair facility several times but it makes no difference, I also reloaded PrePar 3d v4.2 twice now and that has not made any difference either, should I have deleted previous version/s prior to re-loading the S/W. I HAVE HAD THE Anti Virus software Win Defender off AT ALL RE-INSTALATION ATTEMPTS.

I am operating a H/End PC System i7 / 12 core /1TB SSD / Graphics Card GTX1080Ti (11 GB of Memory)

Hello Charlie

Have you confirmed your 3rd party Add Ons are compatible with Prepar3D v4.3 ? Have these been updated ?


Here is a quick step you can try, This will not effect your 3rd party software Add On's

Delete the Prepar3D.cfg file and the Shaders folder, These will generate again when Prepar3D is launched.

Copy the 2 set's of Tex below and Paste them into your windows search bar, One by One and click on the result, this will bring you directly to the correct locations
