Installed X-Plane 10 Global Edition form the 8DVDs I have. Software appears to install fine, no errors during install and updates just fine as well. However, upon trying to open Xplane.exe for the first time, the loading screen appears and at the bottom starts a small progress before changing to (Not Responding). I have let this run for nearly 5 hours now, and it's still using 10-15% of the CPU in Task Manager and about 2GB of my RAM. How long will this process take or should I expect it to take?
I will list the machine specs below, but I'd like to state that every other program/game/performance test I've thrown at this machine has handled it without issue, but X-Plane will not cooperate so far.
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
Gigabyte Z170-HD3 motherboard
8GB DDR4 RAM
Samsung 500GB SSD
ASUS Strix GTX 970 Graphics Card running latest NVIDIA drivers(installed 9/14/2016)
Update: I re-installed the software without updating, this landed me on 10.32, and that loaded within 5 minutes and is working wonderfully. Is my issue potentially to do with 10.50? if so, how can I update to just the most stable version? and what version is that?
