A couple of days ago I tried to take off at KJFK. I pulled up and at 5ft. above ground I got a press any key to continue message. I pressed a key and the same message came up again after about half a second. This was repeated over and over again. When I didn't press any key X Plane froze until I pressed another key.

Thanks for any advise you can give me!

Can you provide some more information? What plane were you using? Does this happen any time you use X-Plane? Or only when you use that specific plane at that specific airport? Can you provide a checklist of specific steps to reproduce this issue? Such as 1. Start X-Plane 2. Load the Cessna on runway # at KSEA, etc.

This happened the last few times I've been using X-Plane. This has been happening with all plane and airport combinations. I forgot to mention that it started on its own, not after downloading any third party add-ons or X-Plane updates.

Steps to reproduce:

Start X-Plane, Select plane and airport of your choice, Take off,  Press any key to continue.

This started happening on my Windows 10 pc. I'm guessing that OS is not officially supported yet? I get this upon trying to even load x-plane. I'm not sure if it started when I downloaded 10.42 or before when I was at 10.41. It's unfortunate that there is not a way to back up one version. I hate having to backup the entire 200GB folder when I want to upgrade. It does not happen on my Windows 7 machine that has been upgraded to 10.42.

One thing you can try to just get flying again is moving the Preferences folder out to the desktop (it's in the Output folder). X-Plane will then start with the intro video as if it were a new install. Sometimes that can get you going again if a setting was accidentally changed, or if there is a problem with a scenery pack or plane.

To troubleshoot this more, please upload a copy of your full log.txt. Please start X-Plane and run until you have the problem, then quit. Without starting any other LR programs, attach the log.txt to a response to this question. (I believe you can upload a file if you click on the image button. The option isn't there for comments though.)

Thank you very much for the suggestion. I will do it as soon as possible.
