Fs9 on Vista

Recommended Posts

Hey,I done a search on this but didnt find anything so decided to ask, I plan to upgrade my PC soon, and they all seem to come with Vista. I dont plan to go to FSX yet and would like to run FS9 for years to come. My question is, does Fs9 run ok on Vista, and do the addons (pmdg etc) run good aswell?Thanks in advance,Dave

Hello Dave, I do not have an answer for you ...but like you it is nearly time for me to buy a super computer to run FS9 on. :)I am surprised there are no answers to your question yet :-hmmm

For me FS9 runs perfectly well with Vista.If you do have a problem installing an addon (I didn't at all)you just have to run it as Administrator or choose XP in the Compatibility Tab (right click>properties).With the new Nvidia drivers I really begin enjoying Vista :-)

Hmmm... I've seen something worth noting. :( "The Garmin Trainer which runs the Archer's GNS430 is not compatible with Vista 64 bit versions."In other words Reality-XP's fantastic GNS430 and GNS530! :-eek

For me, that are using a new ATI-card, FS9 almost runs good in Vista. The problem is that I can't run FS in windowed mode with the drivers from ATI.

Just curious. :-hmmm EwingKATLAlcohol, Tobacco and Firearms should be a store, not a government agency.MSI K8N Neo2 PlatinumAMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.0 GHz2GB Corsair PC-3200 512x4 Dual Channel CL2.5 DDR DIMM eVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT 256MB DDR3Sound Blaster Audigy LSOCZ Powerstream 420WWinXPPro (SP1)
