Brian, the 2 programs aren't connected in any way I'm aware of. I have down install/uninstall of both at one time or another and it never affected the install I wasn't removing, i.e removing FSX didn't bother fs9 in the least bit.HTHJim

Brian / Jim...there is a known problem with FSX (and the demo) that often systems where the FSX software is installed lose their registry pointers to FS9 which interferes with the proper operation of the software, and more importantly, payware.Flight 1 software has kindly crafted an executable which fixes this if it occurs on your system.You'll find it about midway on this page:http://www.flight1.com/view.asp?page=libraryCheers,bt

Brian:Uninstalling FSX WILL (repeat WILL) erase your FS9 registry entries and there is nothing that you can do about it. You will need to download the Flight1 FS9 Registry Tool which will fix your registry so that your addons will find it again. Once you fix the registry all should be well again.Regards,Mike T.
