FSX reinstall on different drive snag

Recommended Posts

Hi

A few months ago my wife got me FSX for a present. I've had FS9 running for years. So I was happy to go for the new version.

I installed it and got two addons-secnery and aircraft.

I noticed FSX takes a long time to load.

Then I read somewhere that FSX should not go in C\Program files.

So I uninstalled and and put it in D\FSX

The install went ok, registration code, etc etc. Then SP1 and 2.

The first thing I noticed -there was no desktop icon.

So I started it from inside the FXX folder.

It started running and building the scenery index.

Then I got a window saying- Flight simulator needs at least an airport, VOR or NDB to run ...and will now close!

My OS is Windows 7 32 bit

What do I do now?!

Here's an excellent guide on uninstalling/reinstalling FSX - http://support.precisionmanuals.com/KB/a87/how-to-uninstall-and-reinstall-fsx.aspx. Here's an other excellent guide on setting up FSX and tuning it - http://www.simforums.com/forums/topic29041.html. Most like you did not uninstall the previous installation properly as FSX leaves hidden files and directories. So, when you reinstall FSX, the old stuff is still there confusing your operating system (and you).

 

Best regards,

Jim
