Upon starting XP, I immediately get the following error...

This first appeared two days ago immediately upon opening XP after doing only one thing different... One night while my PC was completely off, I unplugged the Ethernet cable between my network card and my router. The next time I turned on my PC, it asked me to connect to my router wirelessly. I did so and about an hour later, I opened XP and the error appeared.

Desperately guessing at what it could be and not finding anyone else inquiring about it online, I turned off the PC, reconnected the Ethernet cable, and proceeded to open XP again. The error appeared a second time and has continued to appear ever since. This was two days ago and four more attempts.

As of tonight I tried a fresh reinstall to no avail. Any help is much appreciated.

Try checking your firewall. Remember that some features of X‑Plane require that X‑Plane be able to communicate across your network including networked multiplayer flights or multi-computer simulations. You can read more here.

That is a good point and one I forgot to mention I had tried. I double checked to make sure that the x-plane.exe program was allowed. The box for private was already check marked, but I check marked the public box as well to be sure. Unfortunately, the problem did not go away. I will try completely disabling my firewall and see though. Thank you for the contribution!
