I have recently upgraded to a H.P.Pavillion p6130v with 8 G.B. of memory and a NVIDIA GeForce 9100 graphics card, and for the past couple of weeks I have been downloading my files (including Orbiter), in to my new O.S.. My problem is this: Orbiter worked fine in my old sytem (Windows XP,albeit slowly), but short of the slower graphics card etc., the game worked. Now, when Orbiter does work in Vista, it works great (i.e., faster frame rate, better graphics etc., however, a large number of my add-ons have quit working and I get a CTD).
In the Orbiter log, I get the following:

A:Problem running Orbiter Space Flight Simulator in Vista.

Hello stevcast,
There are a number of things that can cause this, my guess is that your running out of video memory, yours is an onboard graphics chip, how much is allocated to the video chip ?.
How hot is it getting ?, it must be stretched to the limit running this Sim, try turning down the graphics and see if there is any improvement.
If you want to run high end games and sims like this, it may be an idea to get a PCIe video card.
Give this a go and post your results, good luck.

Hello,
I have Vista Ultimate 64-bit,
and I tried to run FS on my system, but,
as I tried playing, I enountered lots of bugs during game play,
for example the screen gets black when I try to switch from cockpit view to external view, etc.
The game was utterly unplayable and my FPS was very low.

It's a bit strange because I run the FS on QUAD, with 4GB RAM, 8800GT.

Please help me !

Hi
I am running both FSX and FS 2004 on my box, no problems on either I have Home Premium 64bit

Have you updated your video drivers?

Have you gone into your settings and decreased some of the graphics settings? Start at the default settings and gradually increse them.

You can also increase your frame rate in your graphics setting, the recommended framerate is 20-30,

Try re-install if all else fails

Hope that helps

Hi guysI have been trying to install microsoft flight simulator x since yesterday and I was having errors all the time. (It was giving an error about Simconnect) and after doing some research, I resolved it by installing SDK and Simconnect manually, but now I have another problem...Whenever I click fsx.exe it says "This version of the file is not compatible with the version of windows you are running. Check your system information to determine if you need 32 bit or 64 bit version of the file and contact the publisher of the software"Also, I cannot install Acceleration expansion pack. As I click "setup" it says "Flight Simulator X: Acceleration requires english version of Flight Simulator X" and it quits installation. By the way I already have the english version of the game.I am running Windows 7 Ultimate Edition (x64). I have Nvidia Geforce GTX 260, Intel Core i5 750, 4GB of DDR3 1333 RAMI also use Norton Internet Security 2010I wish I can find a solution here.

I bought Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Deluxe Edition and went to install the game into my computer which has never had a problem installing DVD-Games but when MSFX asks for the 2nd Disk and i put it in and click the Ok button for it to start loading the 2nd disk. The DVD-Rom stops spinning the light stops blinking and the message saying for me to insert disk 2 keeps poping up even after i click ok. I am not able to Open the DVD door anymore also. I tried to install it on my friends computer and it worked fine and fully installed. So i thought it was my DVD-Rom so i went and bought a new one and it still does the same thing. If anyone could please help me solve this problem i would appreciate it. I have never seen anything like this before.

Hi guys

Iím trying to load Flight Sim X without any success, I was wondering if anyone knows what my problems is. I start installing Disk one and the software starts loading itself ok but after a few minutes and when things appear to be fine, the InstallShield will stop loading and just hang there, the DVD will then runs for a few moments and then stops. Iíve tried installing the software about 12 times now and on every occasion it appears to stop loading at different points in the process. For example I can get 25% complete on the InstallShield and then it locks up the PC, once I managed to get 50% complete on the InstallShield before it locked up The whole screen also appears to freeze. To get out of the software requires a reboot of the PC. I posted this problem on another forum and the guys kindly suggested that I go to the Microsoft help website and try a number of fixes, which i did. These were the Error message " 1722" fix ( which did not work), the Error 52 fix ( again did not work). I'm running Windows XP if that helps. Any help would be really appricated.

A:Flight sim X problem

First of all, Flight Sim X is good enough to keep trying (at least, it's good enough AFTER the SP1 update).

I don't know the answer to your problem, but one thought occurs. Flight Sim X is a massive installation, and takes a long freakin time to complete. It's one of the longest installs I've ever gone through. Could it be that it's still running, and just appears frozen? I've had a few games that appear to hang during installation, but if I go and make a sandwich or watch some TV or something and just let it run, it turns out it was going all along.

Hi, I am a new Techguy member, and I just found this site and I found an error I can't figure out myself, and I need some help.

I just bought "World Airports" about a few months ago, and I wanted to test it out. I tried to install FS2002, but it says:

Setup was unable to locate a valid installation of FS2002 from the Windows Registry.
This product requires FS2002 to run.
You will need to browse the FS2002 folder manually.

I cleaned my registry 3 times and deleted the folders permanently and I just can't seem to find the problem.

Help would be appreciated. Thanks.

EDIT: It's not a ripped version, it's a CD-ROM version I just bought not that long ago.

Recently, I bought Flight Simulator Deluxe 10 and installed it. Then Service Pack 1. Then SP2, which said it came with Direct X 10. It said not to install it if I'd installed the Expansion Pack, and I hadn't at that point. I finally bought it over the web at the MS Flight Sim site and during install, it said I had to remove SP 2. No big deal... I'd kinda expected it.

Anyway, Expansion Pack also says it comes with 'introduction to Direct X 10' and having a brand new eVGA GeForce GTX 285, I was excited to see the difference... as soon as I tired opening Flight Sim after all was said and done, I got error messages saying I needed to install Direct X... 9. So I installed 9.c again and everything workd-except Direct X 10?

Anyone have a clue why Microsoft did this?

Thank you.

Sorry, I accidentally posted this in the news groups as well. I didn't realize there were two gaming forums. I don't understand the difference. I posted in that one because I found it first from a Google search. Sorry for the repeat.

Hello folks, I'm new here. I'll try to keep this short and sweet.

On my machine which is Vista 64 business... about half of my games don't show up in my programs uninstall program in control panel, the programs list under the start button, nor do they ask to put a desktop shortcut up. I have to do that manually. The games run fine but the machine doesn't recognize them as being installed I guess....fully.

Well I had to uninstall FSX Deluxe/ acceleration because I was having some errors. No big deal happens to games sometimes. Do it in my other ones all the time. Well being it wasn't in the control panel I couldn't uninstall it, or so I thought. I never knew I could put the disk in to uninstall it. Found that out later. Anyway, I just deleted the folder and did a regedit search for Microsoft Flight Simulator X , Simulator X , and FSX and deleted them all and researched for them several times to make sure they are gone. Did a virus scan with Symantec and degragged the drive and restarted the computer and unplugged it.

Now when I reinstall it won't even have an option to reinstall. It has remove or repair and it won't let me do either.

Please, your help is MUCH appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

A:Problem Uninstalling Then Reinstalling Microsoft Flight Simulator X

It's okay that you posted it in the newsgroups, that's a different forum. This one is specifically for the Vistax64 forums while the other one is a public MS forum on another site, and it's just been integrated into here for convenience.

Now, I don't know what to say about the programs not being listed in "Programs and Features" in the control panel. Some games do not ask to put a Desktop icon and may or may not do it automatically. Also, some games have a tick box that asks if you want program shortcuts in your Start menu, maybe you missed those as your were pressing Next during the install.

On the reinstall issue, my guess is that you deleted some entries in the registry that should not have been deleted. Your best bet here would be to do a System Restore to a point before you started messing with the registry.
Note (this is to everyone): While you may want your registry to be as clean and as tidy as possible by deleting all previous game and program entries yourself, it is usually never a good idea. Ever... unless you know exactly what you are deleting. "But it say [insert name of game here] in the registry and i uninstalled it ages ago." It doesn't matter, you will usually do more harm than good. If you must, use a good, known, recommended registry cleaner to clean your registry and leave it at that.

Hello, this is my first post to this site. I've recently been upgrading everything I can find on my PC that I don't have to pay for, and so far I've added a significant amount of performance with simple things like driver updates. The only problem I've had so far is with the SiS 760 that is built into my computer. I updated the driver first using an update I found on microsoft's site, and it increased my framerate on flight simulator 2004 by about 7-15 fps. I was ecstatic at the speed increase, until I switched to ****pit view and the instrument panel looked like this...(my post count is 0 so i can't directly link the image, replace the underscores with periods)

I rolled back the driver and the problem went away. Then I searched around and went to the SiS official site. I downloaded a driver that was newer than the one on microsoft's site and the problem came back again. I think it has something to do with overlays, but they didnt put a lot of configuration options in the driver config util. The problem doesn't happen all the time, it will occur with one aircraft and then upon switching to another it will go away, and yet the next time i try it using an aircraft that didnt have the problem before, it will come back. I realize that the newest drivers are not always the best. I've searched this site's forum and a few other sites, and I've found many many threads w... Read more

A:Cannot run Flight Simulator X - Toshiba Tecra S1 Video Driver problem

What do you see in the device manager found in Hardware section of System in the Control Panel. Scroll through all the list of installs, looking for red or yellow flags for devices. If nothing, then download drivers for the display adapter, disable or remove the existing drivers, and install the new or replacement drivers. I would replace the graphics driver, audio driver, then the latest version (February 2007) of DirectX... as well as anything else that has changed on the driver list at the Toshiba support site.

Hello everybody,
I recently had and still have this problem with my Flight Simulator 2004. The problem is that when I start a flight my computer gives me a message saying:

"Your computer has run out of available memory. Flight Simulator will now exit. You may noy have enough free space on your hard drive. Run Disk Cleanup to free up space, and then try running Flight Simulator again."

It says that I may not have enough free space, but I have. In my 80GB HD (the one I have my sim installed) there are 33.8GB of free space. Isn't that wierd?
I'll try using ccleaner to free some memory, but I don't know if my 1GB DDR Memory is also a problem... maybe I have to add 512MB or more. See my computer specs.

Hope you help me guys, thanks!!

Does anyone know if FSX addons compatible with Vista will also work on Windows 8, 8.1 or 10. Looking to buy new computer from wiredtofire but they are not sure, so wondered if there was anyone using fsx who knows the answer to this, please.

A:Flight sim

Yes, most likely. Even if it doesn't, you can use features like Compatibility Mode, and other programs (DOS Box, VirtualBox, and others) that can be used to run programs that only ran on outdated OSes.
I would also recommend building your own PC (something we can help you with here @ Bleeping Computer), as you can save a lot of money that way.

Flight Simulator X has amazing graphics. It even allows you to go to any country in the world and most airports. It's about the best you will get. If you think it has "crappy grahpics" then change them on settings!

A:Combat Flight Sim 3 HELP!!

millertime:

From what i've read dealing with previous posts on cfs3 it tends to be a problem in and of itself. Proably the best suggestion would be to try everything in the post at the top of this forum. Also make sure that you have all the patches for the game and latest catalyst drivers. Also try turning down the graphics in the game. Also you might try looking in the event logs to see if anything was recorded at the time of the crash, in xp you can do this by going to start->run->eventvwr. One last thing that you might look at is to see if yoru video card fans are working or if your video card feels very hot. If either is the case then your video card may be going bad.

Hi all,

I'm an enthusiastic flight simmer and I've just upgraded to a new powerful but expensive system. Unfortunately I have not much experience troubleshooting computers, so please be patient with me. I didn't build the system myself, but the manufacturer overclocked the i7-4960x processor to run at 4.3 Ghz in turbo mode. The new system is great, no stuttering at all and high frame rates as expected but the frustrating thing is that I get a BSOD in almost every flight when playing FSX. Sometimes this happens immediately after firing up FSX, sometimes this happens 7h hours into a transatlantic flight which is even more frustrating... Because I use this computer exclusively for FSX I cannot tell whether the BSOD would happen in other situations as well. The computer is networking with 2 laptops, another desktop and a tablet, all of them running add-ons when I'm flying. I conjecture that the BSOD is related to the overclocking with which I have no personal experience at all, neither have I run any system stability tests on my own. I desperately need help but please take into account my low level of knowledge and experience when trying to help. Thanks a lot in advance. I have collected all .dmp files in the attached zipped folder.

Have updated video driver and got a patch for the Flight Sim, but I still get a somewhat slow frame rate for Flight Sim 2004 and my Flight Sim X barely works with extremely slow frame rate and much of the scenery doesn't load (I get the planes + some background scenery but no airport terminals!!!). Of the two games, 2004 works but is so annoying as the screen seems "sticky"/"jumpy" - it's just not a smooth picture - if that makes sense?

Any Flight Sim buffs out there who can help?
 

A:Flight Sim 2004 & X

Your system barely meets the minimum requirements for FS2004. (The recommended requirements for FS2004 is 1GB RAM, not including what the operating system uses). The video card barely meets the recommended requirements for FS2004. You can't actually update the drivers because Nvidia no longer supports the gForce4 series of cards.

Your video card and RAM do not meet the minimum requirements for FSX. Your video card alone will need 2 to 4 times more RAM (depending on if you have the 128MB or 64MB version of the card).

I'm actually surprised that FSX actually let you install it on your system. If you want a better answer, go to http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest and run the test on your system. You will get recommendations.

Horrible Lag in Flight Simulator FS9

I've been on PROPS Racing at WestCoastATC for close to a year now with no problems.
This is online flying of P-51 Mustangs where 10-15 pilots follow a pace plane over a course
and then we dive to the track to race around several pylons.

For some reason, for the past 3 weeks, in every session I now have this horrible lag.
The game itself never lags, just the other players.

When following the pace plan as well as observing other players, the plans appear and
disappear, then reappear in different places as though I pause for a second at a time.
I've always enjoyed a flawless game except for one fellow who is on dial-up and he shows
lag to the rest of us all the time.

It doesn't effect my frame rates, which if I set to unlimited I get
about 150 fps. My connection speed is 3,000 kbps. My upload is about 300 kbps.

AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3200+ 2.2 GHz 1024MB Ram
Radeon 9800 Pro

I switched cable modems, same thing. I switched Ethernet cards, same thing. I
uninstalled FS9 and reinstalled in new directory-new location
on my hard drive. Checked for spyware with several different
programs, checked for viruses with several different programs.
Clean as a whistle. Defragged, cleaned up and polished everything
I can think of. Same thing, horrible lag.

How can this be? Horrible lag on a very fast computer with a great

I installed Microsoft Flight Simulator X (GOLD Edition with Accelerator) yesterday, and have been running it. It runs well on my dual Intel 200 GHz processors and 4 GB of memory.

However, the Weather function does not work. I can set the 'User Defined Weather' but when I run the flight, it has no effect. All I ever get are blue skies but I want to shoot instrument (IFR) approaches.

Is there something special that I need to do to make the Weather function work?
Does it work on other versions of Vista? (I have the Vista Home Premium 64bit version)

Thanks, Gerry

what video card do you have? Could have to do with that since it's an effect ingame

Hello,
I installed MS Flight Sim 2004 on my computer and it tries to start(goes to opening graphic) and freezes there. I cannot figure out why it won't go any farther. Anyone have any ideas???

My computer is as follows:

CPU- ATHLON XP 2000+
512 MB of DDR RAM
ATI Radeon 7500 Video Card

I am not sure about this problem. Maybe your Video Cards Drivers haven't been updated. Try downloading the latest drivers for your Video Card.

Also you need DirectX v9.0 or higher to play MS Flight Simulator. If you have DirectX versions lower than v9.0 then you should update it to v9.0 or higher.

Other than that, you have met all of the requirements to play the game.
