Flight Simulator 2020 is a great simulation software that leaves little to be desired for pilots at home. From time to time, however, it can happen that the flight simulator can no longer be started. Thus, you can no longer take off into the air, which is why a solution is absolutely necessary.

That's why we want to show you a solution here, which leads to a quick solution in most cases:

Flight Simulator 2020 can't be started - here's how it works again

Microsoft Flight Simulator

Step 1: Perform all Microsoft updates

Make sure that you have installed all updates in Windows.

To do this, you need to check for updates and install any updates you receive. Open Windows settings and go to "Updates & Security". Then select "Check for updates".

Step 2: Install graphics card driver update

You should definitely update the graphics drivers if Flight Simulator 2020 does not start. The easiest way to do this is via the device manager. Open it and then uninstall the graphics card driver. Alternatively, the latest driver will be installed on the next reboot.

Step 3: Start the game as administrator

When a game crashes, it is often the case that the cause is that the game does not have the correct permissions.

Therefore, find a shortcut to the game, then right-click on it and select "Run as administrator".

Step 4: On Steam - check the integrity of MS Flight Simulator.

If you use the Steam client to run Microsoft Flight Simulator, you can check the integrity of the Microsoft Flight Simulator game files in the Steam client. This will allow you to fix or repair any corrupted files on your computer.

To do this, open the "Steam Client" app in Windows 10 and navigate to "Library". Search for "Microsoft Flight Simulator" and right-click on it and select "Properties".

In "Properties", navigate to the "Local Files" tab and go to the "Verify game cache integrity" option and wait for the process to complete.

Step 5: Reinstall Flight Simulator

If nothing works, try reinstalling the game. Go to Settings --> Apps --> Flight Simulator --> Uninstall to remove Flight Simulator from your PC. After that, download it again.

Step 6: Maximize virtual memory

Virtual memory in Windows serves as additional memory if your system does not have enough memory. You can increase the virtual memory of your system to fix the problem with Flight Simulator not starting.

In Windows, search for "Show advanced system settings" and open the menu item. Then, in the opened "System Properties" window, under the "Advanced" tab, navigate to the "Settings" button in the "Performance" section.

In the opened "Performance Options" window go to the "Advanced" tab again and in the "Virtual Memory" section go to the "Change..." button.

Uncheck the "Automatically manage swap file size for all drives" checkbox and select the "Resize" option.

The virtual memory should be 1.5 to 3 times the size of the physical memory. For 8 GB of RAM, enter 12288 MB in the "Initial size" field and 24576 MB in the "Maximum size" field. Confirm this by going to "Ok".

After that, restart your computer and check if the error is fixed.

Hopefully, with the above tips you will be able to solve the problem with Microsoft Flight.
