FS2020 does not boot up after installation of RDPreset's LIRN


Recommended Posts

My sim was working fine this morning. I shut down FS2020 to Desktop..... I saw a new Naples LIRN from RDPresets, and purchased it.  After downloading the installation zip file, I unpacked it, and ran the installation as Administrator, inputting Email address and Keycode when prompted. The installation seemed to go without any problems, and I restarted FS2020.
Sadly, it would not boot to the pre-flight screen. I uninstalled LIRN from the Apps, but the sim still refused to boot into the pre-flight screen. I removed everything  from my Community folder, and deleted my FS2020 Cache,  but it would still not boot. I unistalled FS2020 from steam, and re-installed it. It booted to the pre-flight screen in Safe mode. I rebooted it in normal mode successfully. I replaced everything back  into my community folder, so the only thing not there was RDpreset's LIRN. The sim booted normally, and I even loaded and launched into EGLL successfully.
I shut down the sim, and re-installed RDpreset's LIRN. Once again, it failed to boot to the pre-flight screen in both normal and safe modes. The blue loading indicator reaches the far right but does nothing else, so I am permanently on the loading screen
Please advise.

Hi Wayne,

Sadly this is the first time I've heard of this issue.

Could you give me some information regarding the circumstances?

- What Windows version are you using?

- What is the folder size of the folder inside the community folder when you click on properties?

- What simupdate are you on in MSFS?

Failing to boot has been an issue when reverting from SU10 back to SU9 so need to rule this out.

I'll be happy to help in any way I can, but this is a difficult situation since nobody else is experiencing this.

Kind regards,
Cas

Hi.
It sorted itself out after I switched the PC off for ten minutes and tried it again. Never saw such a thing before. No night lighting at LIRN was a surprise.
Anyway.... to answer your questions:
Windows  10 to the latest update state.
Community folder size 238 gigabytes.
Latest sim update 10 installed 1.26.5.0 (no beta)
 
No... not rolled back to SU9

Hi Wayne,

Thanks, is it correct that it works now?
