YSFlight won't start

Post by anshabhi » Fri May 27, 2016 1:45 pm

Hi,

I am not able to start YSFlight on my account (It runs perfectly on another windows account on my PC). When I start YSFlight, only the sound from demo comes, but there is no display. Any solution? I have tried all the three versions OpenGL2.0 , OpenGL1.x, Direct3D. Besides, uninstalling and installing it for 3 times.

Please note that its working perfectly on another account on the same PC.

If anyone wants PC Specs : http://www.91mobiles.com/hp-15-n205tx-f ... ndia-61933

Are you running on a limited account or an administrative account?also make sure you have directx installed and updated.

Make sure all drivers are updated. Then right click on whichever ys.exe and select run as administrator.

SlimDrivers is a tool I use to keep my system up to date, perhaps look into it?

I think I have detected the problem.. I modified the f22.dat file, in attempt to make it have 12 AAM by default, but it seems that YSFlight got upset with this.. (It has now stopped working in other User account as well, after I modified the f22.dat file).. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it..

Anyone aware of such an issue?

Thanks.. But in my PC, HP has pre-installed some softwares for that purpose..

Sorry I don't get that.. If you are talking about those HP softwares, then no not really! They are quite helpful, and I can uninstall them as per my choice..

Update : The reset tool solves the problem..

My HP PC has all sorts of stuff installed to do all sorts of things. It will be the last HP product I buy. HP makes terrible products, in my opinion. I have so many problems running all sorts of programs.

Try a fresh install of YSF to another folder and see if a clean install works.

Well have you updated drivers? Have you tried running it as admin? Right click on the program and run as administrator.

Also I'm not sure but ys also needs the microsoft net framework tool to work right? Can someone confirm?

I think I had the same problem before.

Try ALT + SPACE, then Maximize.
