I'm using 64-bit Win7 as well on a new mobo and CPU, a Core2Quad. Are you sure you're installing the correct file? Wilco pub has two versions, one FSX, one FS9. For FSX, you should be trying to install the file named: 777_X10c.exe Is the file old? Do you need to re-download? I didn't have to change any compatibility setting whatsoever.Randy Jura, KPDX

Unless you've figured it out by now , installing Wilco products can be tricky at the screen where it asks you where to install. They always have a generic directory instead of asking the registry where your particular FSX is. What do you put in the FSX location box?Randy Jura, KPDX

That is very odd. I've found some livery installations to need to have one point to the product's folder within simobjects/aircraft, but never the main aircraft installation files. That's very strange, but who cares huh!Randy Jura, KPDX
