My Microsoft Flight just stopped working one day. I deleted it and re-downloaded it, but it still says the same thing.

It says, "Microsoft Flight encountered an error while initializing its system. The program will now exit."

What should I do?

Did you try Right click game in list->properties->local files->verify integrity of game cache? That could help –  murgatroid99 Apr 18 '12 at 0:36
Hopefully it logs errors somewhere. You could also try running a dxdiag, upgrading your video drivers, etc. –  Matthew Read Apr 18 '12 at 1:33

Have you tried deleting the ClientRegistry.blob file? It sometimes helps. Here's a guide on how to do it: support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7241-EYON-2343 –  Saaru Apr 20 '12 at 8:43
