For w7 it's generally excepted the way to go is to install it outside program files in the main os directory, I installed it on a second hard drive to a directory 1FSX, just to make it abit easy to access.

Dependind on which edition your installing you will need to reboot and restart fsx at each stage.

I have W7 64bit on my i5 4GB laptop. I dropped the UAC settings right down & installed FS9 (2x versions) FSX (dumped in favour of P3D) & P3D in their default directories.

NEVER a problem or issue. Methinks it's an urban legend that you gotta use a different directory. 

UAC is useless & just to be safe, always run as admin.

BTW, I'm the librarian at our virtual club & must have installed the sims in excess of 50 times on our members PC's, never an issue!

Yup, install, reboot, defrag, use CCleaner & Glarys utilities to clean up afterwards. Reboot again.. Perfection!
