What do you mean by not working? Does it say 'A fatal error occured' or something?

Please send a screenshot of it.

 

Regards.

Not really clear what you did, and what worked.. and when.

 

You upgraded from windows 7 to 10.  Fresh install / Upgrade in place?

 

Did you reinstall FSX?

 

You installed SP1, why?  You installed SP2..

 

At each of these steps, did you see if FSX worked OK?

FSX Gold Edition (3 Discs) does not require SP1/2 to be installed. Doing so has

probably caused your problem.

I upgraded to windows 10 2 months ago. fsx still ran after. it was after I ran sp1 and sp2 the problem started. I did not reinstall fsx after the upgrade to windows 10.  I installed fsx with the 3  discs. can I uninstall it now,

I would try first to uninstall SP2 and then SP1.

 

Then try a "repair" on FSX using your disks.

 

If all that fails, uninstall FSX, and re-install it.

If you have the FSX Gold Edition, SP1 and SP2 are included (well SP2 is actually Acceleration).

 

Best regards,

Jim

 

EDIT:  See Charlie Aron in post 7 beat me to this recommendation!  Sorry Charlie!  I honestly did not see you post.  There must be a lot of people on the net today and the site seems slow today.

Buy the Steam edition.  It is via download.

Hey Bert . Why is the steam edition so cheap. 10.00$ can. Is it comparable to the gold edition?
