W7 upgade on exisiting Vista Installation with FS2004

Recommended Posts

Good Mornings Gents,I'm planning to purchase W7U-64 upgrade for my current Vista Ultimate 64 set-up and I have some questions and concerns.My FS2004 setup is very complex and I think I'm not alone in that. Therefore, I feel that it would be extremely labor intensive to start everything from the scratch (including planes' and sceneries\modules installation) if I could go with clean W7 installation over existing Vista. Is there any way to minimize the pain and simply install W7 upgrade over my current OS without having FS2004 reinstalled.If anyone has such experience or perhaps you're aware about possible problems, please let me know. Thankss

Thanks David,Yes, I currently have Vista Ultimate and I plan to upgrade tp W7 Ultimate. My question was how would FS2004 run after this upgrade. Do I have to make any additional steps to make FS2004 work in W7 environment such as registry editing for payware products etc?
