Be sure you allow enough time for the sim to shutdown completely. This can happen several (or many, depending how much overloaded your FSX install is ) seconds later, well after the icon on the taskbar has closed.

You can use the GSX Control Panel while the sim is running, and check the button which says "Waiting for the sim to close", to get an idea how much it takes for the sim to *really* quit and close all the started add-ons.

If you restart FSX when it's still not completely closed, it's likely GSX won't start on the next session, because the Couatl program is still open from the previous session. You can check this on the Task manager: if you still see a Couatl.exe running, Terminate it, so you can restart FSX without restarting Windows.

I'll repeat again the relevant part of my previous reply: you can check this on the Task manager: if you still see a Couatl.exe running, Terminate it, so you can restart FSX without restarting Windows.

Have you checked with the Task Manager to confirm this is what really happened when exiting the simulator ?

No, otherwise it would happen to everybody that updated Windows. Do you have other addons that runs as .EXE files in the Task Manager that don't close properly when you exit the sim ?

Why you started writing in German ? This forum is English only, and I don't understand German, sorry.

In any case, instead of that screenshot, you should have done what the message asked to do: open the error log to see error details, which could be helpful understanding what's happening.

oh sorry first time for German was a provided ............
I think I have recognized the problem, the Guatl Exe runs after quitting in the background and when I close this manually with the Task Manager everything runs normally, but why does the Guatl exe not tell by itself?

That's precisely what I said before and asked to check!

It's surely does, if you allow enough time to quit the sim and don't re-open it too quickly. Ready my previous reply, in which I explained this.

runs permanently in the background and does not close after one hour? So I have to use the Guatl scripting engine for FS. Exe always manually terminate by Task Manager?

I don't fully understand you. As I've said, it's not normal it wouldn't close automatically, the most you'll have to wait is probably 20-30 seconds, so there's clearly something wrong in your system.

Are you able to test without any other add-ons installed ? Especially addons that have their own modules under the "Addons" menu of the simulator.
