FS2004 does not run with CD#4 from a DVD drive in WIN 10. The solution cannot be discussed on AVSIM's forums.

Google search fs9 not compatible with Windows 10.  The first site is Microsoft questions and answers.  Read and follow how the guy asking about this fixed his problem.

FS2004 IS compatible with Windows 10.. I'm running 6 different versions of FS2004.. Golden Wings, FS History, FS Vintage, FS Space, FSSE (a special version for my VA) and a version that is dedicated to The Ford Tri-Motor Project.

Google the other forums, but here is the basics.

 

1.Install into C:\ directly, NOT the default install.

2. Install the 9.1 update

3. Right-click the FS9.exe, (or the desk-top icon) & select Properties

4.Click 'Compatibility' & select XP

5. Run as Administrator.

That's it.. Just run it & all will be good!

(PM me if you get stuck)

 

Regards,

You might have the "secdrv" problem there.

"secdrv" is a Windows Service that a lot of games used for CD checks. It has at one point or another been deemed as "insecure", and disabled and hidden from view, although on Win 7 it is still there.

Prior to launching, I have to perform the following command:
sc start secdrv

This enables the CD check (not just for FS2004, but many older games).

You can stop the service after launching the game.
