Next Suggestion--rename your fs9.cfg to fs9.cfg.bak and restart the sim. It is possible an add-on is looking for a dll which is part of your startup situation. If that works, then look at the .bak file and that should reference the add-on (probably an aircraft) causing the issue.There is an off chance that you could also have a bad spot on your hard drive. Your dlls would show up when you list them, but one or more would fail on loading.Regards,John

You may have uninstall a certain program that had removed a .dll your flightsim needed. My suggestion is to locate a certain .exe named LibraryFiles. This should install all the necessary .dll thats missing and you should be good again.Cheers,American HaulerT. Headlam

If you find you need to restore some of the original files from your disks, try these resources:http://www.cat-tamer.com/flightsim/faq001.htmlIt shows where everything is on your install disks and how extract just what you need.I also recommend fs9cddir.zip Compiled by Brian Collins (available here in the library)This is an Excel format listing of all the files on your install disks. A great resource to keep handy.Good luck.
