Due to crashes of x-plane I re-installed the game on a new disk. But even without any plugins and scenery it crashed almost immidiately 

The log file is no help at all:

You should recalibrate the device in the Settings menu.

Is there a way to read the crash reports?

Noticed that we all seem to have a R9 200.. which driver are you running?

Having the same issue. Can't even stay in the menu.

I now have the latest version 17.11.4.  The version before was running fine for months without issues even after upgrade to Windows Creators Update. My crashes started two release candidates ago en continue now with the latest final release.

I even reinstalled everything on a new SSD. Installation still "virgin" and crashing.  Log not show anything in particular as issue.

I've noticed something..

When I install / re-install the graphics driver and I reboot my windows, X-Plane will work exactly once. 

Maybe it regenerates the shaders or something. 

seems related.

I tried the following successfully.

They suggested deleting the contents of the 'Install folder\Output\shadercache' folder (I suggest backing up these files elsewhere first) so I've tried this and successfully started X-Plane a number of times now.

As a work around you'll have to delete the shadercache before each start and it will work like before.
