146/Prepar3D won't start



  • It's been a month or two since I ran the sim. I started up Prepar3D last week and instead of the start screen with the 146 showing in the default aircraft, the previous was a black void, and Prepar3D exited without a crash or any other kind of problem. Tried:

    • Starting again - same
    • Killing any running task assoc with Prepar3d/JF146 - same
    • Restart Machine - same
    • Uninstall JF146; Reinstall JF146 - same
    • Uninstall JF146 & Prepar3D; resinstall P3D & JF146 - same
    • Uninstall JF146 & P3D; delete folder where the install was; remove registry entries that seemed to be left behind; reinstall P3D and JF146 - almost the same

    I am now at the point where I Start P3D and I get the following error. Eventually P3d bangs out without any other error.

    Assistance would be greatly appreciated. P3D itself is unusable - but I'm convinced it's a JF146 problem.

    I think your best bet would be to contact Just Flight support.

  • @Derek Yeah I'm trying that now. Trying to get through all the initial questions.
