    MS Flight Simulator 2020 Crashes Using NVidia Driver 497.09


    I updated my NVidia driver to 497.09 which works fine except that MS Flight Simulator 2020 started crashing to the desktop either loading or shortly after starting a flight. I reverted to the driver 472.12 I was using and all is fine again.

    It's sad.

    The new MS Flight Simulator brings my powerful computer to it's knees.
    Had to remove it.

    Am I the only one?

    I have an elderly i5-3570K CPU and RTX 2060 Super GPU and find MSFS runs quite well

    Really? I'm stunned. Then again, I tried it only 6 months after it came out. Perhaps I'll give it another go.

    Thanks.

    From SeedyL3205 2-12-21

    We are carefully monitoring reports from our players that the latest Nvidia Geforce driver (497.09) may be causing issues with Microsoft Flight Simulator, including, but not necessarily limited to, crashing to desktop (CTD) and blue patches where ground terrain textures should appear. Please vote in this poll so we can better understand how widespread this issue is and if it is affecting everyone who has upgraded to the 497.09 driver or only a subset of players.

    Please choose the appropriate option for your version of Windows (10 or 11) and which DirectX version you are using (11 or 12).

    Thanks,
    MSFS Team

    Thanks for confirming I'm not alone. So much for using a newer driver!
