I doubt this is the problem, but FS Effects won't open if the sim is paused.

We haven't run across anything like this, so can you tell me more about your situation so I can make an attempt at duplicating it?

Which aircraft are you using?  Does it do this with all aircraft?

What is your display configuration? Are you running full screen or windowed mode?

When you say it won't open and everything freezes, what did you do next?  Could you resume your flight, or did you have to close out of FS completely?

Yes it does it for all aircraft. When I open addons, it's there but when I click on FS Effects, sim freezes, I press escape key, all back to normal, but no FS Effects.

I have found that I can duplicate the problem you describe; but on my system, the problem only occurs intermittently when I'm in full screen mode.  The problem doesn't occur when FSX is in windowed mode.

As an interim work around, I would suggest you try switching out of full screen mode (press Alt-Enter keys) before selecting FS Effects from the Add-ons menu.  After you are done with FS Effects settings, you can toggle back to full screen mode by pressing the Alt-Enter keys again.

I am looking for a solution that doesn't require any work arounds...

Yes, that works. Not a big issue for me and It may help others with same issue. Thank you for the investigation. If you find a fix, will it be posted for everyone as well? Thank you.

FS Effects has been updated to version 1.03 to fix this problem.  And the new version is no longer fussy about whether or not the sim is paused when it's selected from the Add-ons menu.

Please download the FSEffects installer again from the Flight1 products listing page (http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=fsstall) and re-install FSEffects.

Hello,
I just installed FS Effects v 1.03, but on P3D4.4, and had exactly the same problem as Durmmerguy. The work around of enabling in windowed mode instead of full screen is working as well, but apparently you would need another update of the product so that it does not happen in P3D either...
Regards.

I didn't find exactly the same problem described by drummerguy at the start of this thread, but I did find other equally bad user interface problems when I ran P3Dv4 in full screen mode.  

An updated version of FS Effects was released today (February 20, 2019) to correct these issues. The FS Effects Installation Manager is unchanged and is still at version 1.03, however, the Real-Time User Interface is now at version 1.04.

Please download the FSEffects installer again from the Flight1 products listing page (http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=fsstall) and re-install FSEffects.

The updated program was tested in both full screen mode and windowed mode in FSX, FSX SE, P3Dv3, and P3Dv4 without issues, but additional feedback is always welcome...
