JRBarrett Posted January 23, 2019 Report Share Posted January 23, 2019 From time-to-time I get a pop-up window when starting X-Plane requiring me to re-enter my X-Aviation email and password to re-authorize my license. This will always occur if I have not opened XP for some time, but today I got the re-authorization check even though I last used XP-11 just 4 days ago. Unfortunately, now that TerraMax is installed, this is causing XP to crash. I cannot access the license validation text box to enter my information because XP is hung trying to load TerraMax seasonal textures, but apparently cannot complete the operation because the system is waiting for license revalidation. It's a classic "Catch 22" situation. Eventually I get a Windows 10 error that "X-Plane has stopped responding", and I have to close the program. The only way I can correct it is to temporarily move the TerraMax folder out of /resources/plugins. I can then start X-Plane, successfully revalidate the X-Aviation license, close X-Plane, put the TerraMax plugin back, and finally re-start X-Plane again. I've never quite understood why these regular X-Aviation license re-validation checks are required. Is not the license info permanently stored on my computer somewhere? In any case, the only way I can see to avoid having this problem is to re-enable default XP seasonal textures in the TerraMax config screen before closing X-Plane, on the off chance that a license re-validation request is going to come up the next time I start the sim at a later time.
