Reinstall of Win 7

Recommended Posts

Recently I reinstalled Win 7 and of course the reinstall of all my FSX files. Taking the advice I reinstalled FSX in separate file. The reinstall went fine, I had all my files backed up on external drive, but notice that it takes forever now to download files and I have now getting a stuttering issue on the screen. I have downloaded recent drivers for my ATI 5700 series and other optimizing solutions. I am curious is there something else I should do after the reinstall that I may have missed?

Hello Richard,First I would defrag the drive that FSX is installed on,then apply the tweak in Bojote's automated FSX Tweaking & Tuning Service Jude

As long as it isn't an SSD hard drive, I'd try a defrag on it. Al

Disk fragmentation will not cause stutters. Think hard, have you installed anything else lately? It could be the new drivers, antivirus, .cfg settings. What's different from before you had the stutters?

That's wrong - in small doses it won't but if you have serious fragmentation it definitely can. If I recall FSX is quite fragmented when it's first installed.

I've got to stick to my guns on this one. Blurries, yes. Longer load times, yes. Stutters, I'll just take your word for it but I've never seen it. EDIT: With extreme fragmentation, I guess.

OK I defragged - again. The stuttering is gone, but I have another question. I reinstalled FSX in a separate file instead of the usual path as suggested in the reinstall instruction on the PMDG support page. My question is the path to FSX is now different (I realize) but to use Bojote's automated FSX Tweaking & Tuning Service the line to get to the appdata doesn't work, what is my new line, ie %appdata etc.... If I am not making much sense please excuse me as I am dealing with a monumental collaspe of my Red Sox. Thanks for all your input.

Richard, I am planning do the same in my PC. I have a SSD of 60 GB so the OS i will install in SSD drive.My question for you is regarding the PMDG products.......Did you active them without any problems? Have you observed some improvent in 737 ngx performance after reinstallation? Thanks

That's correct, fsx.cfg is in the appdata\roaming mentioned by *******' tool. Regardless of where you installed fsx, the fsx.cfg file will always be there.Edit: make sure you've enabled "show hidden files/folders"

Thanks Ken appreciate the info. Silvio no problem reinstalling the 737NGX, I cannot say whether my performance has improved till I address the issues the were caused by the reinstall of the Win 7. Especially the slowness and decrease of frame rates that were not present before the uniinstall. I'll keep you updated.
