Recommended Posts

HiI am ready to build a new PC with win 7 64 bits.I will continue to use FS9. My current FS9 setup works well under Win XP SP2...Are there some add-ons (particularly utilities) that are known for not working in Win7?ThanksGhiom

ThanksActually, I will install FS9 on a separate drive so no issue there. Thanks BTW.Regarding addons, anything that won't work?What about Admin rights. I am planning to have only one account, the default administrator. Will this help?ThanksGhiom

WHY can't install FS or any add-ons into the Program Files folder?
In Vista and later, that folder (which includes folders within it) is protected by Windows and won't allow modification without administrator privileges. You won't be able to edit the CFG files as easily, and some add-ons will not install because they don't request the required privileges. That also goes for Program Files (x86) in a 64-bit version, of course.
