Dig up a registry cleaner - maybe "RegHeal" :- http://www.fixregistry.com/ and run it. Uninstalling the old version has left some entries in the registry - the new version sees those entries and assumes the old one is still there. I purchased this one, but there are freebees on the web.

Also go into your files and make sure FSX.cfg directory is deleted and the FSX main folder has been deleted. Microsoft does a lousy job uninstalling this program.Jim

Use the search function on your computer to find "FSX". Include hidden files and folders. You will need to do an advanced search. The files you want are in a "Hidden Folder". You will want to know how to find that folder after you re install FSX. But for now , delete any FSX thing that comes up. I use free Glarys Utilities. It has a great registry cleaner. Do you use XP or Vista?Bob

JoseOpen "My Computer".Select "Tools".Select"Folder Options". Select "view". Under "Advanced Settings" select "Show hidden files and folders". Select "Apply" then "OK". Open the drive where you installed FSX, C: is the default. Open "Documents and Settings". Open the folder that has the name of your computer on it. Open "Application Data", then "Microsoft". Delete the "FSX" Folder.Download the free version of "Glary Utilites" or CCleaner ( you can Google them). Either will get rid of any FSX registry entries.Good luck.Bob
