FlightGear never sends crash reports after crashing

For some reason, every time I try to reset my flight it always shuts down and I have to download scenery and aircraft all over again. This is annoying and I'd like to know why it always crashes. I have a strong computer and graphics card, and the computer is only 1 year old.

also please be more specific...

1. what do you mean "reset my flight"? exactly what are you doing? we cannot look over your shoulder from half way around the world ;)

2. you should not have to download the scenery and craft all over again... we definitely need more information to be able to solve that...

"Why not?" said Gurder.
