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

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.

Computer crashed now formatted with vista home and trying to reinstall flight sim X but it keeps coming with this message microsoft flight simulator x scenery world texture 024C2 Sul.BMP


FAT32. The File System used by Win98SE that has no security like NTFS file/user permissions. The lack of FAT32 security may be your answer to a lot of problems with FSX. Mine was a license issue + couldn't install ACCELERATOR pack. Windows 7 offers all the tools to create a FAT32 from available space from your C drive. ControlPanel>>AdminTools>>ComputerManagement>>Storage>>DiskManagement. Right Click on Drive C and click "shrink volume". Set shrink size to just under 32 GIGABYTES. Then format it as FAT32, Reinstall FSX into the FAT32 partition and ENJOY!!!. The install may take almost 2 hours so just let it sit. This (installing into) FAT32 thing will solve so many issues. In NTFS, if security on one file it tries to access - fails or a service FSX needs to run fails THE APP WILL FAIL!!!!

The simulation freezes when using several accesses


This sounds like a user rights issue. Go to the FSX exe icon in C:\program files\games\flight simulator and locate it. Right click the icon, and choose properties. At the bottom of the options is "always run as administrator". It doesn't always work doing this from teh shortcut on your desktop.

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.

Installed FSX & it worked fine yesterday. Tried to play it today & it says my graphics card doesn't meet minimum requirements. What gives?


Once you reboot or restart your system, FSX will run the checks that it didn't when you installed it hence the message. Upgrade your card and you will be okay. Suggest an Nvidia GTS250 if you want lighting fast graphics.

When i try to load a flight plan and click save it closes fsx


Where are you getting the FP from? If it is a third party software, the resulting Flight Plan must have a .pln extension to the file. If it is a FP from within FSX, you set up the plan, then tell it to load it, then you can save it okay.

I have fsx deluxe and it hangs on install


Check your DVD discs have no scratches or damage. If this is not the case, get a replacement set from where you purchased it.
