Will they all work?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have used FSX boxed edition for close to a decade using Windows 7 and have invested at least a couple of thousand dollars on all of the aircraft and scenery add ons. (Its probably more but I don't want to think about it!) I have upgraded my hardware a couple of times during this period but these new parts have all still been Windows 7 compatible. If I upgrade my system to the latest hardware now it will require a change to Windows 10. The key question is this: What percentage (roughly) of all of these addons I have invested in will not work under Windows 10? Will my boxed edition of FSX even work with Windows 10?

Everything will probably work, providing you install the sim into C:\ instead of the default Program File directory, & you just may have to run as Administrator.

I always recommend after doing a clean install....the very first thing you do before anything else.

Turn the UAC to 'Never notify'

It is utterly useless in preventing an infection.
