If I recall correctly from the Vista Beta, you have to activate the administrator account and use that or change the owner of the FSX.cfg (and the Documents and Settings folder) to your user account.I think that's right, but you might want to check with some of the guys who are still running it here.

I dont have vista, but one of our customers found out that he needed to right click the desktop icon, and select 'Run as administrator'. Personally I will be using XP until they pry it from my cold dead hands :-)
