    PFD/ND stays minimised..strange...

    I have a problem where when you launch the GC pfd/nd program
    it stays minimised in the taskbar and refuses to open up.
    Anyone else had this problem?

    many thanks

    glass cockpit.
    Anyway solved the problem, don't minimize the pfd before you
    shut it down.

    cheers

    He is referring to the project Magenta Glass cockpit software.

    Sometimes this is caused by an improper installation, delete, and complete a new reinstall.

    Other times this can be a video driver conflict.

    My personal suggestion is install the demo software, and see what benchmark you get from it.

    I bet you will find a complete reinstall will solve the issue, possibly an ini file corruption.

    Yep, that will do it. However, I think you can set the .ini to read only and it then wont change. With PMRJ I also backup the directory so if I accidently mess it up I can just overight all again.
