I purchased X-Plane 11 a week or so ago. Since then I have been trying to use it.

My computer is a DELL OptiPlex 9010 with an Intel HD Graphics 4000 card.

When I try to start a flight, after a few minutes trying to load everything it comes up with an error, see attached screen capture.

I have also attached the log file with all the error messages in it.

I tried reinstalling it at least 4 times so far, I have also updated the graphics driver and at this time I am sure it is the most recent. I still could not get it to work.

Please let me know how to fix this issue.

You may have a problem with your graphics driver. Re-install your graphics driver and try again. make sure its OGL compatible. Also, Intel IGPU is not really a good graphics processor as it's included in the CPU chip and it's not very powerful. It might be a good idea to buy a low end/midrange video card.
If not check .....\X-Plane\Resources\shaders\deferred_vert.glsl and deferred_frag.glsl. Make sure they are completely removed when you uninstall it.

Good luck solving your problem!

Thanks you for the quick response.

Will the following graphics card be sufficient?

ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 DUAL-GTX1060-O6G 6GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

The GTX 1060 6GB will be adequate for running X-Plane 11 in medium-high rendering settings.  For reference, Laminar Research specifies the GTX 1070 or better as recommended requirements.

I used to have a 1060 6GB card as well.  It was underpowered for operating more complex aircraft at high settings, so I upgraded to a RTX 2070 recently.  If you are a serious simmer, you should probably consider a higher performance option.

GTX 1060 should be a good graphics card for what you seem to have, i7-3770?

Any further, you may encounter CPU bottlenecks, so I think 1060 6GB is a great sweet spot.

Good luck!
