DreamFleet 727 v2 & Vista

Recommended Posts

Hi,I recently started using my laptop to Flight Sim as my desktop died. My desktop was Windows XP and my laptop is Windows Vista. I have the DreamFleet 727 v2 and it ran fine on my Windows XP machine, however it crashes to desktop when I try and select it in FS on my laptop. I have been researching this for the last week and have determined it is some sort of panel issue. When I completely remove the panel folder, I can select the aircraft. So, has anyone gotten this to work on Vista? Or have any suggestions?Regards!

Hello,I have Vista Ultimate and just purchased the Dreamfleet 727 v2 from flight 1 just a few days ago. It works great so far on my computer. I installed it as administrator and I also run fs9 as administrator. I do not run it in win xp compatible mode. I also run the 727 config manager as administrator.

Wouldn't turn off UAC - but when you install it (ie run the .exe file) run it as Administrator.Scott

As others have said, it runs fine. However, if you're using a 64bit version of Vista, the load manager won't work...and I don't know of any fix for it.

Hi, I had the same problem, What I had to do to get 727 running on my system was browse the CD, open the 727 folder and actually run the 727 install program manually, I had to do this in windows 98/Me compatability mode. Dont ask me why it worked, 727 was never written for 98/Me but it was the only way I could get it to install on my Vista system. Hope this is of some help.Best RegardsAndy

I'm wrong on that one. After I posted that I went looking to see if someone had posted a fix (I hadn't looked for awhile), and someone has. The solution is here: http://www.simforums.com/forums/forum_posts.asp?TID=20345
