Yes, that has been happening to me too.  SUPER annoying!  It doesn't happen every time, but it happens every few days.

Hi Heiko and Jon,

I am not associated with Laminar Research: just a flight simmer.

If you are running a genuine ie Laminar Research Disc version then you need to have disc No 1 loaded into the disc drive for the problem to go away.

If you are running a digital download version then I am not able to help

If you are trying to run a steam version then you need to raise your query in the Steam forum.  This forum is for the dedicated genuine Laminar Research product.
