I believe the ModName should be main.dll. There is no "man.dll" in the module folder. In any case, I could find no solution doing a search within this forum with "main.dll". A couple other simmers received a similar error msg but the problem occurred in FS2K2 or FS98 or they didn't post a fix for their problem. Microsoft came up with a solution for the error message in FS98 and you can find it here to see if it applies to you: http://wwwtest.sunsite.org.uk/sites/ftp.mi...-us/195/518.HTM. I would recommend copying the main.dll off of the original CD's and putting it in your module folder. Since you haven't ran FS9 for some time, you may also try removing or renaming FS9.cfg, restarting the sim, and let the program rebuild FS9.cfg as it could have gotten corrupted. Hope this helps.Jim

Sorry nothing worked. I see you haven't upgraded to FS9.1. You might try that and see if that fixes your problem. You can download the update here: http://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimulator/downloads.asp. Also, did you recently update your video card drivers? Many times corrupted video card drivers cause startup problems for FS9.Jim

reinstall...Might also need to repair or reinstall your Windows installation, could be something more seriously wrong than a faulty file in FS somewhere.

Unfortunately you can't simply reinstall without uninstalling FS9 first. The install program won't let you. I would copy all your addon's to a temp folder, uninstall, reinstall and, if the sim starts up successfully, add the addon's.Jim

You can easily reinstall FS by renaming the FS folder to FS2004OLD or something, renaming the FS9.exe to FS9.exe.old and the installation will then proceed. Install to the same location as your old FS location, then simply copy back the files you want. It is recommended to install the FS9.1 update to a vanilla install of FS, BEFORE you start moving things back, because when you do you absolutely, positively do not want to overwrite one of the old system files with the new ones! Move things back a few at a time.Allcott

"Thats not right. You can easily reinstall FS by renaming the FS folder to FS2004OLD or something, renaming the FS9.exe to FS9.exe.old and the installation will then proceed."Thanks Allcott. That certainly is another way to do it! My "recommendation" will work too.Jim
