Maybe you can check the amount of free memory? What happens if you use an other aircraft than PMDG? In this way you can find out if it is relates to the scenery or not...

Did you have an error message during the crash in FSX?

You most probably had an Out Of Memory crash (OOM).

Since FSX is a 32bist application, the max amount of memory it can utilize is 4 GB, regardless how much RAM You have installed.
The 4 GB is a combination of work RAM and Video RAM.
FSX is also sloppy in it´s ability to free up VAS, so on longer flights VAS will gradually be eaten up, especially when flying over (Even at 36.000 ft) other addon sceneries, like airports.
Photo realistic sceneries are loaded in FSX regardless if they exist on the other side of the globe. So if You got some US photoreal scenery, then this will also eat up VAS when You start from Copenhagen.

I also had an OOM yesterday, testing the EKCH scenery with the PMDG 737 NGX.

Please refer to this post I made: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=6941

You should cut down Autogen, Water settings, Traffic and keep away from high-res textures to be on the safe side.

Also in the Fly Tampa scenery configurator You might need to remove some of the graphical enhancements.

The PMDG aircraft addons in general are very VAS hungry, so You might not have an issue with other addons.
It´s really time for developers of both aircraft and scenery addons to make considerations regarding VAS usage.

No is not OOM becuase VAS is around 1.8-2.3 :) If my computer can handle DUBAI from FLytampa it can handel Copenhagen to ^^ So it think the problem is windows or the scenery...and i was stupid yesterday and clear the even viwer -.-

How on earth are You able to see 1.8-2.3 free VAS with the PMDG NGX ?

At the default FSX Sharm El Sheik airport with the NGX I see 1.902 free, and that in a scenery with almost no Autogen, buildings and Traffic.

In EKCH taxiing from RW04L and into the gates brings VAS down to 750 free.

Please tell Your settings ?

Mesh comlexity: 100

Mesh resoulution:5M

Texture resolution:7CM

Water effects :LOW2X

Special effects detial: LOW
-------------------------------
GRAPHICS Settings

Global texture resolution: Very high

Ani aliasing: Anisotrpic

Aha....

Level of detail Radius at Low and Autogen at Sparse, that might be why You get a rather low VAS usage.
So I agree that OOM should not have been the culprit.
