  1. The first time that you launch X-Plane 11.50 using Vulkan or Metal, the load time may be quite long. This is because X-Plane is doing all sorts of work in the background preparing for the good times to come.
  2. Windows 7 does not support the Vulkan API.
  3. You may need to update your graphics drivers for this new version of X-Plane. Here is some more information on how to do this
