FSX and Windows 7 User Account Control Setting

Recommended Posts

I have gone directly from Windows XP to Windows 7 (64 bit), so some of the user interfaces are new to me. I ran into a problem where Radar Contact would load correctly, but each time I tried to use it (example ask for weather), I would receive a Run Time error 75, Radar Contact.FSUIPC RCV4 code error message. I was able to "fix" this problem by going into the User Account Control Settings and setting it to "Never Notify".Is this normal? Has anyone else had to do this? Thanks,Jim

Hi Jim,I turned off Windows 7 64 bit UAC as soon as it was installed, I've yet to see any reason to turn it back on.

Me too! At least disable it until you have FSX set up.Best regards,Jim

I agree turn it off or it may pop up and bite you one day. :(

Wow great list! Anyway to select a classic start menu look, similar to Windows XP? I've always hated the Vista default and Win7 start menus. I run Vista and can do it but my new Win laptop can't apparently...
