I have Windows 8.1 , 64 bit and for a long time no major problems. I have found the winning combination. Everything FSX is in the Program  ( 86 ) File. UAC is turned off. Everything FSX is made Windows 7 compatible . I add " Everyone " in the security Tab. A lot of people say you shouldn't put FSX in that Program File but it works for me.

I put my FSX on a dedicated removable hard drive under its own directory tree.  Nothing special, just wanted the ability to pop out the whole lot on one drive if I wanted to.    Thats a 1TB drive ,but Im beginning to think thats not going to be big enough.   

 

And to think my first company issued laptop in the early 90's had a HD of 20MB.  And that seemed like PLENTY.   And I still miss Tornado as my favorite combat sim of all time.   I wish somebody would reproduce that thing.   Friggin awesome.  Still.  Remember fighting to get below 640K memory limits and things like load high bat files?   Same thing as this quest for FPS.

I wish I had the good luck charm that both ejoiner and jetsmell have.  My experience with FSX and Win 8.1 have been not good at all.

 

I recently purchased a new computer (July 2014) that runs on Win 8.1 so I can finally fly FSX (both SP1 & SP2 are installed).  I am having constant "Fatal Error detected" crashes.  I've been reading all the Forums out there and tried all of the "fixes" but so far, no joy.

 

So, I'm not sure what people are doing to solve these constant crashing problems.  I'm just about ready to go back to my ancient Pentium II system with XP so at least I can start flying again, even if it is FS9.

By the way, what does "UAC" stand for?  Thanks.
