Flight sim X problem

Q: Flight sim X problem

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.
Regards
Bish

Preferred Solution: Flight sim X problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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 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.

go to the forums at www.simviation.com and ask for help there as well becasue they will also be able to point you in the right direction. All i can think of is that your graphics card settings are off (not right). At simviation they have faqs and so on that help you troubleshoot FS.

Hi, I have a problem with my T430s, the flight mode button on the side is broken and flight mode is turned on.What to do? I can't turn flight mode off in settings (as it is "greyed out") and the slider button is completely broken.(I have fixed this button before)I want to avoid fixing the button, is it possible to just disable the flight mode in registry or something like that?

A:T430s flight mode button broke - Stuck in flight mode

Welcome to the forum!
 
There's no trick known to me bypass the wifi switch. I think you will need to remove the keyboard and palmrest and manually move the motherboard switch to the "on" position, (the button on the palmrest actually moves this switch)
 
I just hope the motherboard switch is not broken ...
 
Check the steps to remove the palmrest in the hardware maintenance manual from Lenovo: click here! Chapter 9 - 1100
 
Good luck!

Edit: I just opened one of my T430s yesterday and I saw/remembered the switch is not on the motherboard itself but to a small board which is connected to the motherboard via a ZIF cable... I hope you could fix the issue... ;-)

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.

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.

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.

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, 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.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

Can you provide a link to the device you're inquiring about?

Or the exact make and model?

-----------------------------------

Assuming you're asking about a joystick of some sort, as long as it's USB, it should be plug-and-play.

I play alot of Fight Simulator X and I have had game for a little while. After landing with my Pre loaded Flight Planner I am having difficulty locating my correct gate so that I can park and complete my flight. When you arrive at your final destination you have to park your aircraft at the correct gate so that the ground vehicles can approach. I do not have the Deluxe version, but microsoft states they are supposed to approach and they don't. Can someone help me out with this please???

after you land and taxi off the runway click on the atc icon in your cockpit and click on " tuon on progressive taxi " and that should help you out.

I am basically just looking for a flight simulator to fly some military helicopters with great graphics, not those crappy grahpics on Flight Sim X or whatever its called.

Is there anything like that out there?
 

A:Flight Sim?

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!

Help. We can't get the game to even install. My husband downloaded
Service Pack 1 and 2 before he even opened up the game the first time. Now when you try to open it, it says it can't find mssxml4 sp2. It says to reinstall. We have uninstalled and reinstalled and it still won't open. The laptop has Vista and was a Christmas present with the game. Should we reformat the hard drive to try and get rid of everything.
any suggestions will be helpful

Does setting your frame rate setting to infinite harm the operation of this game or . . . . I seem to be able to run mine that way with my new system. Or should I tone it down a bit or does it make any difference either way?
