Microsoft Flight Simulator Known Issues – How to solve crash to desktop ?

After having applied the latest and mandatory patch that you cannot avoid at Microsoft Flight Simulator launch, hundreds of users reported that their simulator is quite unstable with direct return to windows desk,

  1. particularly right after loading the flight when setting ATIS radio frequency,
  2. or when flying in France and Southern England.

The issues have been identified by Microsoft, as reported among the Known Issues forum thread here.

FIX IT : In the first case, their respective advice is to disable ATC until the next patch release.

> Settings / General / Sound / Text-to-speech settings / Deactivated

In the second case , you should disable Bing Maps world data.

> Settings / General / Data / Bing World Data / Deactivated

The Elavators on the 787-10 dont do much anymore and get stuck with use. There should be some sort of fluidity with the elevators with normal use while in manual, but it doesnt seem to work well or at all. Plane also now wont have usable elevators below 160 knts

Try logging out and then in again on xbox companion/gamepass and then launch msfs. Worked for me after I lost the msfs servers and bing streaming. Cheers
