I cant instal Flight Simulator X - Microsoft Windows XP Professional

    Mine seems to install ok, the game even started up the first time, but now I can't find the program anywhere on my computer. I re-installed, took awhile, no error messages, but this time the game didn't start and I still can't find it.

    Also, how do you determine what your video card supports and why would this create problems with the installation itself? It seems this would make the game run poorly, but it should still install and be visible on your machine.

Jerivas,

Your problem most likely has to do with the video card that you have. Make sure your video card supports DirectX 9.0c, has at least 32 MB of RAM and can suport hardware transformation and lighting.

Good luck!

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 can't run my flight simulator on win 7, get same error as others on vista: d3drm.dll not fopund


Hello Larry,
Download the above file from dll site, unzip it and install it. If the problem still persists then use a system utility software like RegInOut to fix corrupt registry & windows files.
Hope it works for you.

I have a Combat Flight Simulator - WW11 Europe series. Doesn't work on Vista. Can I get a driver for this?


Hi revdoctom
There is no more support from Microsoft .
Try installing a virtual version of XP on your machine : http://download.cnet.com/VMware-Player/3000-2094_4-10470784.html

You need to download and install the latest version of DirectX. You will find the information on how to do that here:

Follow the steps and remember to REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER after you install DirectX. Once you've rebooted, you should be able to install the flight sim.

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.

D3drm.dll i cant load it for flight simulator


is the flight simulator compatible with vista? Do you have all the needed requirments.
If yes to the above then try scanning the pc for errors.
On the other hand right click the setup and choose compatibility from the list and set it to a previous version of windows (example windows xo service pack 3) and select the run in administrator mode. Apply the changes and reinstall. You can again right click (that is the setup) and select run as administrator for the game to have full access to the pc.
good luck and do let me know of the outcome
