I am a satisfied user of Win 7 Premium but- I installed Microsoft Flt Sim 2004 with no problems, all works well. I installed Microsoft Flt Sim X and all went well except that I now get a message saying that the Flt Sim in incompatible with some parts of Win 7 and the Graphics have revert to Win 7 Basic.
Any help would be appreciated by a frustrated oldie.
Thanks for response Pine Man. It may be adjusting the graphics to suit itself but the results are rubbish and make the Flt Sim unuseable. Both the products are Microsoft and they say that there is no problem with compatibility. Could it be my Nvidia Ge Force8800GTS 64 card ? Further idea welcome.
Pine Man, thanks for the tip. I have updated my Flt Sim but there was no improvement. I then tried to change my Aero Desk Top View. I thought that it was in Basic but I changed the settings and then reverted to Basic. Flt Sim now running perfectly. Thanks for your interest.
Hello Jwarn Microsoft Flight Simulator X is readily available. I got mine from Just Flight and I have seen it at Game. Some people, sometimes me, think that Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 is nearly as good as X and,as it is fairly old, it is very cheap. Plenty of Forums and addons available and my pilot friends say that the flying is quite realistic. I was rubbish when I failed a Pilot's Course in 1949 and my grandsons say that I am still rubbish but I still enjoy having a go!
Microsoft's Flight Sim is a great game and can really tax the grey matter if you get into serious flying like, say, a Boeing 747.
I believe the Forum Editor is a convert to it
I cannot understand why Microsoft disbanded tho software developement team some 2 years ago--but I have read that some of the team have got together to bring out a new version of their own. Can't wait.
It is even more interesting in 3D Vision which I now have.
