Hi Brady,

Instead of making another thread about this I wanted to state that I experience the same issue, but this came after I had to remove the files in

"Delete the following generated folders/files. This will result in any add-ons being removed/disabled.

%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4
%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4"

My sim had started making weird things such as not wanting to load other airports than the default, so deleted the files in the places mentioned above and after that, I have had no effects what so ever. I run the newest version of P3Dv4, Win 7 Pro 64bit (everything updated), I have tried reinstalling Client, Content, and Scenery, no luck there. I have tried deleting shaders folder, I have tried all from default a/c to payware.
I have FSFX VFXCentral installed, tried with both installed and uninstalled no difference. It seems like after I have removed the files from the folders, and when it generated a new file it didn't bring everything along in the new.

No ContentErrorLog.txt found in Documents\Prepar3d v4\files.
