I think the core update they pushed just prior to the F14 releasing is the culprit....other plane modules are experiencing the same problem... seems to be a memory leak from the symptoms I see... its sucking the RAM up bigtime

yes, typical ed updates break things, i think they need to start to investigate why its happening, new codes over old coding just does not mix, start again hey

Right now it’s nearly midnight, and for the last 3 1/2 hours after double clicking the dcs ob icon to run the sim, it goes through authorisation - aaaaaannnnd black screen. I’ve got about half a bottle of JD left, I’m pretty sure I’ll still have a black screen when I finish it! Itching to fly the 14, but since downloading it, I can’t do ANYTHING AT ALL with DCS.

Get the “DCS Updater Utility” bud. You can remove and install modules with it, do repairs and updates, among other things.

I only play in the single player. I also got 2x a black screen today. It did not work anymore, had to restart my PC. Another mistake that I have had since yesterday and today was a bug with MS Visual C ++ Runtime (see attached screenshot). So far I have tested the Caucasus Map as well as the Persian Gulf Map. Here I create myself in the editor a small own mission. I have already done the cleanup and repair function today. But did not bring anything. In the dcs.log I find many ERROR entries.
DCS World needs the Panavia Tornado! Really!

I can get DCS to start fine, after about 3-5 minutes in the cockpit DCS Wil crash, sometimes completely freezing my pc, occasionally get a BSOD with system service exemption code. 2 year old pc build 6600k 32G ram SSD 1070 ext... Never had an issue until F14 update.

Did have the same Issues after F-14 Update with DCS. After a lot of things I tried, it helped to increase my Windows Pagefile at least to 32GB.
Really good explained what is happening in this thread:
