You put PMDGOptions.DLL=1 under a section name called [OldModules] didn't you? E.G.[OldModules]PMDGOptions.DLL=1I haven't needed to add that dll but thats how I have done other dlls and it worked for them.If you haven't already, you might want to uninstall the 737 using the remover tool in the support area then reinstall making sure you use the full 15mb patch. Thats what I did and it seemed to work ok.Steven.

Dear Steven-that popup message warning about compatibility is a DEFINITE indication that you haven't installed things in order. The latest PMDGOptions.DLL is FS2004-aware (as well as fully compatible), so FS2004 should not complain.Follow the removal instructions and install again - you should be in good shape.

Yann,I had a very similar issue right after SU1 came out - what fixed it for me was a complete uninstall and reinstall of FS2004... I wish I knew what caused it, it seems as if something in FS's subsystem gets corrupted. FS2002 also wasn't working, it would crash right at the splash screen - do you have 2002 installed as well? If so, maybe that's a clue to the source of this problem... If all else fails - try uninstalling FS: remove FS2004 from Add/Remome Programs, delete the Microsoft Games/Flight Simulator 9 folder, remove the Documents and Settings/(your windows user name)/Application Data/FS9 folder. Reinstall clean from ther FS2004 CDs and install the NG followed by the bigger version of SU1-1. I'm betting it will work. If you have FS2002 installed, I'd recommend uninstalling that fully as well before doing the 2004 reinstall, this is what worked for me...Ryan
