You don't say which simulator you use, but I guess you use FSX, since P3D4 doesn't have a "real" full screen mode. Have you added any tweaks to the FSX.CFG ?

The PoolSize = 0 in the [BufferPools] section of the FSX.CFG file, in particular, is VERY dangerous. If you have it, remove the whole [Bufferpools] section from the FSX.CFG, which is the default setting.

Hi. Yes I'm using FSX. I dont have the bufferpool entry in my .cfg file. After changing views from full screen to windowed mode my game crashes and the event viewer states this:

The issue is that FSX is crashing, so it's *causing* Couatl.exe to crash because, it couldn't receive the command from the sim to close, because the sim crashed abruptly when going from full screen to windowed mode. So, the real problem is the FSX crash, the Couatl crash is a consequence, not the cause.

I tried doing the same, but I cannot replicate the problem. Went from windowed mode to full screen a dozen times, no issues. I'm using FSX:Steam Edition. Which version you use ?

I'm using fsx acceleration version. Ok well there's something else going on here so I'll do a few more test and see what the event viewer picks up if the crashes continue
