Moving FS9 from "Program Files(x86)" to a seperate folder

Recommended Posts

I asked this question at the TOPIC. Migrating FS9 from XP 32Bit to Windows 7 64Bit but have not received a reply as yet so I will ask here. I recently got a new computer W7 64 bit upgrade from 7 happy years with W/ XP.. Before reading posts here I installed FS9 in the default loaction Program Files(x86) and now have seen it is a no-no. I also installed a few of my old craft- the easy ones-- Carenado. Cal Classic, couple of POSKYs..Can I still move FS9 and those add-ons to a different folder? After which I will probably have more questions. :>)) Thanks, BIll

If it isn't causing you any problems, why bother? Perhaps turn User Account Control off to save yourself some headaches.


Arnie....if it ain't broke, don't fix it...

Well, Last night I had some tequila and decided to just move the FS9 folder. So I made a new folder C:W7 FS9 and that is where I put it. :>)Everything seems ok except when loading I got a message that "RxpSrv.dll" can not be found or something. so I took that .dll out of its folder.. temporarily at least. That works.. I wonder of RxpSrv.dll has to do with the fact that when I was moving from XP to W7 on my new computer, I re-installed the Dreamfleet Bonanza that had the RXP Garmin, etc and it did not transfer correctly so I uninstalled the aircraft and all the leftover files I could find. Maybe I missed a couple.
