Installing FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm not sure if I should be posting this here but because I believe its one of the most reviewed, I thought I would I would have better luck.

I have had a little trouble on a reinstall FSX and NGX after a reinstall of Windows 7.

I know I have read where it is best to install FSX on a seperate drive wich I have done. But my question now is, is it best to run it from the main User Account associated with C, or, what I have done in the past,

install and run it from another Administrator Account.

An issue I had was when I installed REX 2 where I had trouble finding the FSX config file because at the time it seemed you had to un-hide the folder files so I could find the User accounts from

my FSX User.

If I have to reinstall everything again I will but it would be good to know how some of you have done your installs. Thankyou in advance.

hi i got my fsx on my second drive i got my uac turned off for both drives since its a pain but some one can chime in here and i always install addons with admin rights and i got rex essential installed on the same drive as fsx with no troubles at all and all my windows things on my other drive.No need to hide your folders cant see any sense it that.
