I am not from Laminar Research, just a flight simmer from downunder.
Without seeing your log.txt file I strongly suspect you are trying to start X-Plane with the X-Plane Installer.exe file instead of the X-Plane.exe file.
All 3 files can be found in the root directory of your X-Plane software installation. Try the change when attempting to start. It should work.
If this doesn't solve your problem attach your log.txt file which is created every time you crash or shut down. Details on how to attach the file can be found here at https://questions.x-plane.com/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=17830136656522860642
Thank you very much for answering! Where do I go to change that file to X-Plane.exe? Do I have to launch X-Plane first and then change it?
In answer to your last question the answer is NO.
What is your operating system? Windows or something else?
Are you trying to start X-Plane using an icon on the desktop? You say "When I launch X-Plane....." how or what do you do? Please explain in more detail what action you take from when the PC is turned on.
Are you the sole user of the PC or others use it as well?
Can you please attach your log.txt file so that I can hopefully determine where and how you have installed X-Plane. I have given you details on how to attach the file.
My operating system is a MacBook Air laptop. I know, this is probably not the best choice for rendering performance, but it works pretty decent for gameplay.
I downloaded X-plane from Steam, and I can either launch X-Plane from Steam or with the desktop icon. When I launch X-Plane from the desktop icon, the main page loads (with the options of new flight, load saved flight, etc. With the 737 cockpit in the background) and then I can play it. I will also tell you that my laptop does not have enough storage by its self, so I had to buy a separate hard drive that has enough storage to support X-Plane. So when ever I go to play X-Plane, I plug in the hard drive (X-Plane will not launch with out it plugged in).
Yes, I am the sole user of the laptop.
I have followed the instructions from the link that you sent me:
Hope this helps,
