Thanks Ralph, Will search for Log File and Post it. In the meantime, newly downloaded KnobFS and Knob XP are working fine. Really appreciate all the help here on the Sim Innovations forum. Time of Day is a real big help for me as I practice ILS approaches and R (NAV) GPS as night flying has always been a challenge for me and its now real easy and realistic to do go arounds at night and in Bad Wx..... thank you again

Found Path to Log.text . No indication of why it drops off MSFS 2020. Re-Installed / Downloaded , KnobFS, Icon now back in Menu Bar and works fine. Only thing I can see that is different is restarting after "Assistance Options" . Reason for this is there was no loss of Icon in X Plane 11 or X Plane 12

What are assistant options? You mean in MSFS itself?

Hello Ralph,
This is getting interesting.... Now I have to find out what's causing this and I need your help! Every time I log into and out of MSFS2020 KnobFS drops out of the Menu Bar. It works fine and I love it,,,, but I keep loosing it and have to reinstall it every single time I use MSFS 2020. Does NOT do this in Xplane with KNOB XP. I really don't mind re-installing it each time I use it but as you said that is NOT normal. I went back to the Log.text as you suggested but can not find anything that indicates what the problem is. I thought it was because I changed the settings with Assistance Options "True to Life". but that is not the cause. Knob FS drops out with NO changes to anything in MSFS2020. Open to suggestions. Appreciate your help
If I can attach anything to this post to help you, let me know. This is NOT a priority item for you , so I understand if you say.... Live with it.....I just dont like to give up on things that are wrong....
Thank You

Hi Ralph
Only reason for posting this is to help others IF they have the same issue.... I know that is your Motivation as well. OK Same problem... ONLY in MSFS2020... Knobster drops out of Menu each time I use the sim. Does NOT do it in X Palne 11 or X Plane 12. Have to reload and re-install Knob FS and then it works fine. Very Helpful in C172 G1000 MFD display when inputting Flight Plans, Frequencies. Time of Day. etc GREAT TOOL. I'm Not into VR Yet but I bet these folks LOVE the KNOBSTER. If you come across a FIX for my problem I would appreciate it,.. Thank You very much ( I have tried the MSFS2020 Forum for help,,,, nothing yet ) So this is a MSFS 2020 issue NOT SIm Innovations.... Right?
