NOTE: These instructions are provided as is. There is no assurance they will work for anyone. In fact, if used improperly they may render your computer inoperable with a requirement to reformat your hard drive and reinstall the operating system and everything else. So, be warned. Generate a new system restore point before editing the Registry.Now the how to:1. Click Start then run.2. type regedit in the window and press enter.3. the registry editor will open and you will see a window similiar to windows explorer. In the left pane is a listing of registry folders. You need to navigate to the following folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator9.0Do it just like you would in windows explorer - click on the first folder then on each subsequent folder listed above. Warning: Do not click on anything in the right pane yet!4. When the 9.0 folder is open, look for an entry named VersionCheck in the right window pane. That entry is called a DWORD and it should have a value equal to the long hexadecimal string you will find in the aircraft.cfg file of a licensed PSS 777. If it isn't there, you can add it manually. 5. To add a new DWORD, click edit at the top of the registry editor, then new DWORD value. You'll see New Value #1 in the right pane, already highlighted and ready to rename. Type in VersionCheck and hit enter.6. Right click VersionCheck and select Modify. An Edit DWORD Value box will popup. Enter the hex string from the PSS 777 aircraft.cfg file in the Value data box and click OK.That should fix the loadedit problem.FINAL NOTE: Registry changes are saved automatically. If you have any doubts about editing the Registry - don't - unless you have a backup of a known good Registry and know how to restore it.Jim Harnes

Not certain. It could be there or there may a Microsoft folder under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE. You'll want to wind up in the Fs2004 subfolder.A search should find it.Jim Harnes

Walouiqi,Sorry to interrupt {please lets sign your real name as the rest of us do}. But, I have three different installations and in each case the check is in the correct folder as per Jim's instructions.Forget FS2004 or FS9: in the registry you are looking for:Flight Simulator9.0. Do not confuse the Windows Explorer programme with the registry: they are two totally different animals. So first: can use "regedit"?If you cannot, post back and I will walk you though it.John Rooum
