Question about Microsoft Flight Simulator X for Windows

1 Answer

System ''Lock up" when running FSX Pro

My operating system is Windows XP. The problem I am having is: having loaded flight simulator and it seems to be working fine, until I need to ''minimise'' & ''maximise'' the window. Normally I carry out this function by selecting,' views' & 'minimise' or 'alt + 'enter'. At this point the window locks up, forcing me to go to: ctrl + alt+delete.

I have tried everything!! Can you please help?

You can try alt + tab. or do alt + ctrl + del win the game DOES run fine. windows task manager will pop up and it will push flight simulator in the taskbar.
if it still crash, check your patch on the game. maybe it has a "minimise-lock". which means: it cant minimise cause the producer doesnt want too (but i cant see why he care ^^)

hope i helped you

PS. just curious: why do you want to minimise?

Also don't know your OS ?
Flight Simulator 2004 doesn't run correctly on Windows 8. It runs on my Windows 8 laptop bought in April 2013. But, none of the aircraft, including any add-ons, show up in the preview window - it is always black. Also, If I download weather and try to save a flight, when I go back to that "saved" flight, it always reverts to the default flight with the Cessna @ the default airport. If anyone knows how to make the flights save, on the Windows 8 platform, please let me know - likewise, with the aircraft previews. Flight Simulator 2004 did quite well on the Windows XP platform for me.

I have 64 bit system. is ms flight simulator 2002 compatible with that?


MS Flight Simulator 2002 should be compatible with your 64 bit operating system.
It should, SHOULD, normally install.
If you have troubles running the program, I suggest right clicking on the shortcut and run it in XP SP2 compatibility mode. But, you shouldn't have to do that.

Hi paperchap
You didn't mention in your post what problem you're having.If you can post that it will help.
In the meantime,I looked into your card for some general information.It's not really designed as a gaming card,but FSX isn't that graphics intense either.
When you installed the card did you install drivers from the disk or did Windows recognize the card and use it's own drivers?
Either way I'll give you a link to the newest XP drivers from Radeon.You should download and install the driver,the catalyst control software is optional.
Let me know what the problem is,and if you download the drivers and that fixes it would you please rate my post?
Post back,I'll help out with what I can.I run FSX quite a bit.

You cannot talk to the tower in FSX, only via third part software and then the button you wish to use would be configured within that software (such as Live ATC),

I have Microsoft Flight Simulator X and a Satek X52 flight control, however I have problems with the throttle on all aircraft. I have to use the F-4 key - can you help?


You need to assign the throttle function correctly WITHIN FSX settings area itself. Also calibrate the joystick in windows first. If you are not familiar with assigning FSX functions to your joystick, check the Learning Center section within FSX for step-by-step details.

On saitek yoke system it wont work on fsx *flight simulator x* if you can help thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Ensure you have installed the drivers for it. If you don't have them, go to Saitek web site, download and install the correct one's for your operating system. Also ensure that the yoke is plugged into the USB port on the rear of the PC as these USB sockets give the most power. Additionally, you have to set the yoke up in FSX\Settings so it knows what to do with it with regard to calibrating it and assigning what buttons do what.

Hi Chris

Ensure that you have the usb lead from the yoke plugged into the rear of the PC as these give the most current. Ensure the drivers for the yoke are installed properly and they are the latest for your operating system. If this still does not work, then the yoke is faulty. Good luck!

MS FSX -view keeps switching from cockpit to spot view


The most likely problem here is that you have multiple assignments for the view change command set to multiple controllers hooked up to the system. They are conflicting with each other causing random view changes.

Firstly, go into Windows Control Panel and to Game Controllers. Remove any controllers listed in that box that are not currently connected or being used in your flight simulator.

Next, go into FSX, into the control assignments section...
Go through each controller in the drop down box (in the button/keys tab) and ensure only one controller has the assignment for view changes assigned.
