FS2002 and Windows XP Pro

Recommended Posts

Why is it that the many areas of incompatibility between FS2002 and Windows XP have not been more widely published.I have sucessfully used Windows ME for 3 years with FS2002 with hardlya problem. Since installing XP Pro, the following occurs: 1)Sudden termination of FS2002 2)Termination of all glass gauges after 5 minutes of flight 3)Inexplicable loss of or never able to hear sound eg.POSKY Delta B777 4)Gradual slowdown of the FS over an hour, needing a reboot 5)When switching aircraft, the panel of the previous aircraft stays put.I have since installed FS2002 on to another computer with Windows 98 and have had no further trouble (apart from the huge job of reinstalling all the aircraft and scenery).I am writing this to let potential Windows XP buyers know the facts.(Computer Dell P3 1HHz, 512 RAM, 120 Western Digital HD,Geoforce 3 Video card with 64 K )
