But shall i put the folder FSX on C:\FSX or D.\FSX. Furthermore, i have the professional CD bought some years ago. Do i need to install SP1 and SP2 afterwards ?

Shhhht, this forum is English ... :lol:

 

Put FSX onto the same drive as FS9. You had a reason for FS9 to put it there, right? They won't run at the same time so you don't have to worry about bottlenecks from that, correct?

 

FSX professional is fine, but you need to add the SP1/SP2 on top of it (for better RAM and multicore usage).

 

There's an AVSIM FSX guide available with loads of information (search ...). For a start, just look at page 15 there (UIAutomationcore.dll fix) and look up the HIGHMEMFIX=1 fix.

Oliver,

 

Tks for your help. I am a complet computer dummy - as i am a cardiac surgeon here in Vienna. I just know how to fly these things as my friends are pilots at Austran and Lufthansa.

 

Can you help me if i have problems thorugh Teamviewer ? I would be more than happy to compensate you for the time.

 

Tks Marek

Sorry, no chance for teamviewer, I'm afraid. Post some more stuff here, I'll be watching this thread.

 

And there are lots of helpful people here at AVSIM - most of them know more about FS than I do!   :rolleyes:

 

BTW, my time on AVSIM is for free ...

It's not malware that worries me, but I need some flexibility for how to spend my time.

 

You could post your issues a second time on the Aerosoft forum. (Just copy&paste ...)

 

They have German and English sections and the likelyhood someone from LOWW joins your thread may be higher.

 

But don't leave the AVSIM forum, it's a wealth of information and support - all around the clock!

I know - i am using AVSIm for the last years. Its all about time - as you said. I am operating every day 10 - 12 hours and the only time i can use the flight SIM is on the weekend. THerefore, i don't want to spend times with software problems.

 

Look now - i upgraded my computer to 64 Bits Windows - reinstalled my whole FS9 stuff (thats around 50 add on airports, PMDG, Level D, Fokker 100 Digital, etc) 

Spend hours and hours on that.

Now i have tremendous issues with the external view. It doesnt work normallly and NOBODY can help me.

Are you referring to the XPack (acceleration pack)?

 

Unless you're absolutely sure that you really need it (certain helicopters, fighters, missions, carrier operations) - stay away from it. It doesn't help with performance, it doesn't fix bugs, but it has created a few issues for some users.
