James,The problems you've heard about are likely to be the ones you get if you don't read the upgrade manual. The reading and understanding of the upgrade is crucial for a successful FS9.1 with add-ons.None of the add-ons mentioned have any problems with FS9.1 if you do everything according to the manuals. Active Camera needs updating. Read the instructions (carefully) on their web site.ADDED: WinXP SP2 should just be to install. No effects on FS or add-ons as I recall.Good luck,

James, I have the PMDG B737-600/700/800/900 with all updates installed along with FS2Crew, Active Sky 2004.5, and Active Camera. I have installed both SP2 and FS9.1, and I have had no problems at all.

No problem with FS 9.1, in fact it improved FS9. Windows SP2, on the other hand was a disaster for me, and I had to uninstall it and use system restore to regain a sim that was usuable. Never again will I install a Windows SP. I already have an excellent firewall and security and I needed SP2 like a fish needs a bicycle. :)
