MSFS just shuts down when loading.

  • Anyone having this issue lately? Just tried starting MSFS up and it gets past the update screen then just shuts down with no errors except for this in the event viewer.

    I am really hoping not to reinstall again. It would be the 5th time since MSFS 2020 has been released.


  • One or more of your addons is not compatible with SU 5.

    This thread Checking Mods after a major System Update will (hopefully) show you a way to identify which of your addons are SU 5 compatible. Any that aren't, will crash the sim. Also make sure that you download all updated addons.

    Good luck
