You have to make sure you can see hidden folders and files in Windows Explorer. It's in Folder Options/Settings under the Organize menu, sorry if the wording is slightly off to what you really see.Ok from here I have to give a Warning (^-^;; ...I don't have Vista in front of me right now, so I can't remember exactly the folder names.Ok, now that I said that... Once you have the option to show all folders and files you will see a new faded out folder in your user account folder, not the C:/User/ folder, called "AppData". In this folder you will find 3 folders called "Local", "Roaming", and "RoamingLow/Local Low". I believe that the FS9.cfg file is in the that Low Roaming folder, but I could be mistaken. Navigating through these folders you should find a succession of folders like "Microsoft/Microsoft Games/FS9" or "Microsoft/Microsoft Games/Flight Simulator". The FS9.cfg will be there.If this doesn't help you can just do a search on the "AppData" folder in your user account folder. It is in there that I know, lol.

Check in the C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FS9 folder with xxxx being your name.
haha, this is much better help than mine :( Glad that I was aiming in the right ball park.

You are right though, you might have to set folder options to see hidden folders. I always set them to visible when I do a fresh install of Windows so I can see everything and not get the are you sure messages when trying to access Windows folders.

Thanks to each of you very much. Found the .cfg file and did what I needed to do. Nice to have people who know what they're doing. Mike
