-SNIP->--------------------------------------->70 to 80% of Freeware Files are for FS2004 ..... Which are 99% of the available aircraft.. FS9 OR FSX... There just aren't that many decent FSX-compliant aircraft available to replace those FS9 aircraft that actually DID work in FSX-RTM and FSX-RTM. SP2 PORKED a great many of them, sadly... Paul

..and as a totally free patch provided from the makers one has complete control and decision making as to whether to apply it! If older fs9 aircraft are your thing don't-and if future thingy's are-do. I love the ability to chose and follow my desires-especially when they don't cost anything. :-)Here is one of my favorite fs9 aircraft running in fsx (sadly no longer available-but it works-they must have done something right!).http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/1b5baf...b9f427f694g.jpgMy blog:http://geofageofa.spaces.live.com/http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/181985.jpg

Hi there Dave.Begin to install again and you'll get a page asking if you want to install or to uninstall. Choose the latter and your problems will be over.Cliff (On the Spanish Riviera)

Dave,See above further. Re-run the installer - that will give you a un-install option. {I have just done it}John R

Sorry, I've only posted the forum's message announcing what the fix does.To apply it, you have to download and install the Zurich Trial installer, because the Addon Manager that comes with it has been upgraded to SP2.It doesn't matter if you never had Zurich (you might had the Addon Manager because of a Cloud9 product or Aerosoft's Florence), the updated Addon Manager will work for those products as well, and of course you might want to have a look at Zurich... If you are not interested in Zurich, you can Uninstall it without removing the Addon Manager, the Zurich Uninstaller will ask you if you want to remove the Addon Manager or not.regards,

Invoking Flight One's Instant Scenery within FSX caused consistent CTD's after installing SP2. Cured by removing SP2.If anyone's interested, I removed SP2 in an unusual way. I did a System Restore which by itself didn't completely do the job but followed it with a full restore of the FSX directory from a recent backup. Everything back to normal.Al Wheeler

Al, you really need to uninstall it from your 'Add/Remove' section via Control Panel.Now I read that Aces couldn't even or want, to solve the VC rain problem either..............what a mess eh?Backwards compatible...........I don't think so.
