But you still end up remistalling FS2002 and then jsut copiying over the original folders with the backed up ones.

Ted,If you have WinZip right click on the FS2002 folder and choose "WinZip / Add to FS2002.ZIP". Make sure you check "Save full path info".The whole installation will be compressed into one ZIP file which can then be copied to CD or moved to another hard drive.Cheers,

There is even no registry problem, I think. I assume you do not backup the keys!BTW I tried some thing similar, well I had FlightSim on D: and Windows on C: then I formatted C: and reinstalled Windows. Then I just thought, let's start fs2002.exe (which was on D:) and he just asked me to accept the EULA again but then it worked.Regards :-wave from EDDFhttp://flightsimmers.net/airport/etti/signature_pro.jpg
