Help! Lost my FSX.exe!

Be advised...uninstalling FS Force 2 or Wheelcam will delete your FSX.exe I just lost mine today. I tried to replace the exe from a backup of the installation files but now I get a Error ID = 25 (null) when I try to start FSX.HELP!ARGH!

If you have the disk space, backup your add-ons first. You'll have to reactivate, but as long as you haven't changed out your HW that should be no issue, unless you run into the eror 1722 issue, in which case you'll have to run the resetsdl function MS released. You can get the utility and instructions for use here.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928080/en-us

Use the repair option, if it's still available to you!!

Actually I got FSX to uninstall using DVD1...I had to disable my virus scanner and my DVD burning software in the system tray...All my awards and medals are gone though - oh well I had nearly all of them...I'll just wait for SP1...I backed up my FSX.cfg file too
