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.

I have reinstalled P3D V4, Checked if any addons could be doing this issue but i couldn't find any issues with the addons. I don't know what the issue is at all.
Did you fully Un-instal P3D, download a full fresh copy of P3D, verify the checksum is , turn the virus checker off and install the full version of P3D?
Reboot the PC.
Did you test effects before adding any add-ons (default state)?

Question, what is checksum, and by virus checker you mean anti-virus?

Question, what is checksum, and by virus checker you mean anti-virus?
On your P3D download page there is a checksum number to the right side of your download item.
Write it down or copy it for later reference.

After you download the P3D product ZIP file from LM you need to verify your checksum number is the same.
If it is not, then there is an error in your download. Do not use it.

Checksum information and free programs for it are on the internet.

Your virus checking program, Antivirus OFF was my meaning.

Before installing, read Poppet's guide, antivirus is mentioned on the first page:
