Missing Registry File

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have just encountered a problem with FS9. Last night I wanted to fly the PMDG 744F so I went to load configurator as I always do to input the load I wanted to fly with, however it came up with a warning saying it could not find a valid version of FS9. This morning I have just downloaded a new scenery and went to install and this time the warning said "cannot find a valid FS9 resigstry entry".I am deducing it may have someting to do with the fact that I installed FSX last week, didn't like the way it ran so deinstalled it. Do you think when it was uninstalled it has deleted some of the FS9 registry files also? Is there a way of reinstalling FS9 over the top of an existing install whereby it does not distrub any of the addons?Many thanks Si Jones

That is a common issue when uninstalling FSX - it often corrupts the registry data for FS2004 in the process.This tool will allow you to easily correct the problem: It is a Path Utility - from the good folks at Flight1.http://www.flight1software.com/files/FS_Registry_Repair.exeHope this helps. :(
