FSX and win7: I can't uninstall the game!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,I am trying to remove FSX (for a re-installation) completely from my system and can't find the game listed under the UNINSTALL A PROGRAM window in the control panel of Win7 64bit. I have FSX on another drive with win7 on a different drive. A few months ago, I formatted m y windows drive but did not format the game drive. After this, I was able to keep playing FSX once I got the windows drive working again, but I've had several errors since. So, I'm guessing the windows registry is messy and why I probably can't see the FSX game icon in the UNINSTALL A PROGRAM window.Anyways, anyone know how I can remove the game so I can reinstall it? Should I format my game drive and reinstall? If so, wouldn't I still have some residual code in the registry from the previous installation?Thanks!

If it's not listed under Microsoft Flight Simulator X in the Uninstall a Program window, then it is NOT installed properly. Simply reinstall. If you insert the FSX disk, FSX will start a new installation if it does not detect a FSX installation. If FSX is detected, then you will receive the option to uninstall or repair.Best regards,Jim
