Hello
Are these triangles, guides to the airport?Check your settings in the game, change to realistic.Or disable guides.
Also visit microsoft for an update to fsx and install it.On the easy mode orange or yellow traingles will appear to guide you to the runway to help learn proper pitch and airspeed,or to simulate an ils landing.This can be without triangles.

Last, make sure you have the most recent drivers for your video card installed.

I loaded flight simulator 2004 on my new computer with windows 8.1. It loaded fine. After when I clicked on the flight simulator icon, the program will not run.


if you ck the box the game came in you will see that its only 4 win2k and maybe win-xp depending on the time you bought it , it wont run in a windows version that was created long after it was written , now that being said , win 2kpro version does have a backwards compatibility version , but then the other newer software you have loaded will not run stable and is prone to crash"s (blue screen of death)

a possible solution to your problem is something like I've done ,I've taken a old laptop with win xp running on it ,and islanded it (never connects to internet or network) so that m-soft cant ever shut it off this one I load all my great ole games to it (flight sim, trainz ,etc.) and it works just fine

Tip

What Does It Mean When Support for My Operating System Ends?


Microsoft Support for Windows Vista (with no service packs installed) ended on April 13, 2010, while support for Windows XP (without Service Pack 3 installed) ended on July 13, 2010. Windows 2000 support ended on July 13, 2010 as well.
There is no Service Pack 3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014.
If you are still running a version of Windows where support has ended, it means that version of Windows will no longer receive any updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update site. These updates are generally provided for security reasons to help protect the PC from harmful viruses, spyware, malware, and other malicious software. Windows Update also provides new drivers for your hardware that can improve the reliability of Windows.
Hackers love to take a security vulnerability in Windows and exploit it to their advantage. So, if a vulnerability is found in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you are not running the latest service pack, you will not be protected and will be at risk.

How Can I Tell What Service Pack is Installed?
Follow these steps to discover what Service Pack is installed:
1) Click on the Start Button
2) Right-click on either My Computer or Computer (depending on your Windows version)
3) Click on Properties
On this window, it should tell you which version of Windows along with which service pack is installed). It should also tell you whether you are running a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows.

Silverlight/generic


Make sure that any programs that typically use Silverlight (i.e. Zune, etc.) are closed during the installation or check to make sure that your computer is updated and running the latest version of Windows XP. If neither of those suggestions work, try a restart.

My problem is to remove the genuine software from my computer because no backrounds are showing in my desktop


The "Windows Genuine Advantage" software on your computer has discovered that you are using a "counterfeit" version of Windows XP.<br /> <br /> So, if you bought the computer from a computer-store, and they installed Windows, you can report them to Microsoft: call 1-800-R-U-LEGIT to report them as "software pirates".<br /> <br /> Or, see: <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/">http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/</a><br /> for information on how to convert your copy into a "genuine" copy of Microsoft Windows.<br /> <br /> Or, buy a retail copy of "Windows 7 Upgrade", and upgrade your Operating System from XP to the latest version.<br /> <br />

I dont know how to fly in microsoft flight simulator x demo and there is no tutorial in the demo


Yes the full version includes a learning center and has some instructor missions that teach you how to fly gradually. It is well worth grabbing the full version. Look for Flight Simulator X Gold Edition. This includes the FSX program plus the Acceleration Expansion pack bundled together. This bundle has all the latest fixes and patches deployed by Microsoft incorporated into it as well.

For more detailed flight lessons, grab a flight simulator magazine subscription. One like Computer Pilot Magazine is dedicated to Flight Simulator X and other sims and regularly features detailed flight lessons etc.

When I bank right or left with joystick the screen Freezes


To check the joystick isn't the problem, go into control panel game controls, then check that the joystick appears and you can move the cross-hair around on screen, most modern joysticks are
auto-calibrating, but you could try running the calibration.

To check the game isn't a problem, unplug the joystick, then use the arrow keys to fly the plane, if it doesn't crash when you bank then it isn't the game.

I assume the game is Combat Flight Simulator 3, as very old games that were written for Windows 95,98,ME series often won't run on Windows NT,2000,XP,Vista as they are completely different versions of Windows. If this is actually Flight Simulator 3, you may need to consider buying a later version of Flight Simulator (FSX is the latest version, but may not run on your laptop).

Other things to try are updating the graphics card driver.

Norton shouldn't need deactivating, although it could cause problems if you're playing online.

Also remember that laptop graphics cards are never as powerful as desktop graphics, and games very rarely specifically support laptop graphics.

Hope this helps.

I'm not sure what updates and patches to get for my Microsoft FSX Deluxe and Acceleration Flight Simulator games. And can I download something called dx9 or FS9 or is that for more advanced versions of my...


If you have FSX Deluxe with the Acceleration expansion, you already have all the latest patches installed and do not require anything further. FS9 is an older version of the game, NOT a newer one.

Just go with what you have now, it is all updated to the latest.
