Guys, Is there any good reason to install SP2 if things are going well in FSX? I run Windows XP and UTX,Megascenery Socal,Dallas/Ft.Worth,and Victoria Plus. With 96 Traffic files I am not keen on another "clean" install. rrnails(aka rnails)System specs: P4-2.8Ghz,800Mhz FSB,3 gigs of 400Mhz ram, dedicated F drive for FSX, UGA 512 Mhz Nvidia 7600 GS-AGP.

Phil, I found it! Thanks for the reply. Of course, I don't really understand it but what can you expect from a 78 year old retired mathematics professor. Flight sim has done more for keeping me alive than all the docs and medicine out there. cheers, rnails

Other small problems. I had no other performance increase over SP1. I then went back to SP1 and everything corrected itself. Vancouver came back to the world.I also am now running FSX with ONLY the GEXnhanced texture files, and SP1 is loving it!I didn't really see any reason on my machine to install SP2. I run DX9.c of course on XPS-SP2.Cheers,Mitch
