Vista 64 and FS9

Recommended Posts

Looking at getting a new rig in the next few months to run FS9 under Vista 64.There are a lot of posts regarding FSX running on Vista 64 but these do not really help me. Has anybody out here installed FS9 under Vista64 and if yes, could you please reply with any positive or negative experiences ?Thanks

Look for the little util to make FS9.exe >2Gb aware.I have to run it in WindowsXP compatibility mode.You may run into a number of issues getting products installed (mostly due to the Vista thing rather than the 64bit thing) but you'll get there in the end.Make sure you've got all your 64bit drivers to hand...Runs like a charm, no OOM errors ever (when I used to a lot).No complaints here.Hope this helps,Ian
