Gerry,At present I am the only member with the release version of FSX - all other members of the team who were on the beta still only have the last version.Until the general release (which is scheduled for 17 October and later in some parts of the world) we cant say for sure. I know what elements need work and have advised those who need to know but until they physically have it in their hands we are unable to give even a basic idea.

Sorry but the FSX is out in Europe now (13 October) ...I have the FSX Pro version and the 757 don't work ... Crash when I Align the IRS and EFIS don't work in virtual cockpit. Some textures are black ...Hope you'll release a fix soon ! :)Good luck for this!

Javier,Before you can even start to try the 757 you will need FSUIPC - without it you are just wasting your time.Black textures are down to parent paths not being supported - an easy fix done back in beta3.

Sorry Steve, I missed that part (it wasnt the subject)The fuel planner has always been good to go but is part and parcel of the utilities set - the load editor was always the delay through addition of anti piracy features. The moment I have news for you guys it will be right here in the forum, stickied and proud.

>How in the world are you running FSX? I am only getting 5fps>in a default a/c :(Jeremy,Firstly the minimum spec in my mind is way way way too low. I have most of my sliders to the right with the exceptions being AI which is at default and AI planes which is at nil since I fly exclusively online. I also have autogen turned off which I believe is the one single killer to frames - just like it was in FS9.With these settings I get an easy 20FPS.

Hey anyone successfully even moved the 757 into FSX? if so, what folders do I use? Would the procedure be similar as well for the 777?

Chris,Yes but you need some tweaking. Installing to your FSX folder wont work. Some files need moved around, plus panel.cfg and fsx.cfg needs edited. You also require FSUIPC.There may be other issues which the developers will be working on once they have the retail version - not everywhere in the world has it yet.

Thanks, Norman.I may uninstall FS X for a while anyway until updates are done. I think it's silly how they did their registry. I guess it overwrites FS 9 registry -- I installed FS X and then went to open FS 9 to fly the 757 and got warnings everywhere from my other payware products slamming me for not having them activated :-( And now they won't let me activate them because the registry no longer sees me as having FS 9 installed :-(I thought there was a tool out there that fixed the FS 9 registry without having to reinstall. Anyone have a clue where that is?Back on topic, I did get FSUIPC 4, and have familiarized myself with the FSX layout. Odd how they moved things -- makes developer upgrades a pain. I really do feel for you guys having to adapt your products to FSX with all the structure differences.

Hi Norman,I know the PSS team is working hard on a solution, but would you mind posting your interim solution for us. It's clear you've figured out how to get the 757 to work in FSX, so if it's not too complicated, would you mind sharing your solutions? I picked up FSUIPC4 yesterday in the hopes that I could get the 777 and 757s to work. Any assistance to make this happen would be greatly appreciated. PLEASE DON'T GET ME WRONG, I'm not trying to pressure you...just hoping that, if it's not too complicated, I could benefit from your wisdom.Regards,Bill

Hi Chris,Be interested to see how you get on. This is a new FSX issue that I have not seen raised in any other forum. It did not happen with the demo and if the release FSX retains the same structure and .exe file, not sure how it manages to overwrite the FS9 registry entries. However ...................???Unfortunately I have not tried the final release yet and no access to FS systems at the moment, so let us know how the reset works.RegardsJohn

I'm sorry but I don't get these errors In FS9 that you guys report. I am now running FSX and FS9 in the same machine and just did a VATSIM flight in my LD767, yesterday in my PMDG747, and I got several other addons installed all in FS9. And I fly them both with no problems at all.Don't you think the FS Team would have thought about this?All the registries are fine here, even an error reported from some users in Beta stages of FS9 flight files replacing the icon to FSX, I couldn't reproduce.Could anyone be more specific as to what errors come up? Do you have these errors on Boxed or Downloaded products?I think these problems occured with one of the Demos but not the Betas or Release Candidates.

Well the registry repAir worked for having access to both sims, but I wonder now what'll hapen when I get any third party add-ons for FS X now that the registry is pointed back to FS 9. And I was the same - no issues with the demo version. In fact the demo was installed too and it didnt even use the same keys.
