Re-installing Problem

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

My FSX was corrupt and i have not played it for a while. I wanted to play it again so i Uninstalled it and then when i went to Re-install it i got this message.

 

 

"A later version of "Microsoft Flight Simulator X' is already installed on this machine."

 

Does anyone know what the problem is? Do you know how i can solve it?

 

Thank you for reading and i hope you can help me as i am really eager to get back into it.

 

Kind Regards

 

Ryan

hi best way I re installed fsx, I re formatted hard drive. started with fresh computer, start new, or youl have error messages, you need to get rid of all fsx files, or youl have the same problem .. put regedit in your search box, and get rid of all fsx files is the other option

put that in your search box lower left, hit enter youl get bunch of boxes , hk systems ect find software Microsoft games in boxes    fsx delete fsx 10 , if you have a lot of addons then the best way is to re format hard drive start from new. I have a ton of addons so I do this once a year to clean pc

yes. reload your I net disk ect, its worth it or you will have multiple fsx files, corrupt ect every time you load fsx, unless you get rid of these files , I found this is the best way fsx has no tech support anymore

go to control panel then to system security then in thear find restore system to original settings, format ect you will need  original disk drivers explorer disk  the disk that you had orinaly when you got the computer. its simple but well worth it make sure you restore to factory settings not a earlier date then youl get multiple files restored wich will cause problems

That is out of the question :( i don't have the disc's anymore. I can't seem to find the files in the Regedit either :( I think i am completely lost with it.

You have to make sure everything was uninstalled, even the stuff in the hidden folders.  Here's a guide I recommend - http://support.precisionmanuals.com/kb/a87/how-to-uninstall-and-reinstall-fsx.  After you uninstall, I would run a registry cleaner before reinstalling.
