  1. Hi, all, I'm a newbie to this forum. I've been building a cockpit over the past several months and am now building a new PC to run it. These are my specs: Intel Core i5-6600k 3.5GHz Cryorig H7 49 CFM cooler MSI Z170A Krait Gaming 3X motherboard MSI GeForce GT 710 MSI GeForce GTX950 2GB G.Skill Ripjaws V Series DDR4 16GB Crucial MX300 535GB SSD DIYPC S280-W case EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 500W power supply I have been running MS-FSX Gold Edition w/Acceleration on Windows 7 with these add-ons: Orbx-FTX: Global BASE Orbx-FTX:VECTOR REX4 Texture Direct w/ REX Soft Clouds My Questions are: Do I stick with Windows 7 or move to Windows 10? Do I stick with FSX or is there an advantage to switching to FSX-SE? Any other 3rd party plugins I should consider? Any and all advice or thoughts welcome! Thank you kindly! Dave
  2. Hello out there. Hope all is well with everyone. I was cruising along with my new z170, 6700k, 1070 and a patriot ignite m.2 480 when the win 10 boot disk failed. So I removed that HD and used my other HD, which was active at the time as the primary boot disk. What I had to do was install windows 7 because my win 10 OS was a free upgrade from win7 at the time (6 months ago). Now the SSD, although visible in the bios and in Device Manager, it is NOT visible in the disk manager. I have not a clue what to do. I can follow directions though if anyone has any ideas Thanks Much Bob
  3. The latest updates from MS introduced a new option in the disk cleanup dialogue. It enables you do get lost of the unnecessary files from previous updates and only was available via some extra tools before. Now this wasn't really newsworthy but I could get rid of over 6gb on my small laptop SSD which is quite the gain. See this example shot of where the option is. That's after cleaning of course, so perhaps check how much free HDD/SSD space is available for you. Note. It might need a reboot to really show up as new free space. That reboot will also feature the 'don't turn your PC off' screen for a second, so I guess it's really cleaning up. After cleaning, you could purchase even more addons, right? Just saying. B)
  4. Hey folks. I am at the point where my system needs an upgrade. I long for better performance in p3d, and my current rig is feeling the age. I am thinking about getting the i7-6700K with a z170 ASUS Ranger mobo. This is my current shopping list. I have a NZXT big tower case, and I am wondering two things: 1. Will the mobo fit in there? 2. Will the dual fan of the corsair water cooler fit or do I have to go with a single fan cooler? Thanks so much in advance for any help and input. I am a novice on building pc's myself.

    New Hard Drive

    Hi Guys!! My setup has two hard drives a 600Gb fast drive which has all my FSX and related add-ons on it and the main 1Tb drive which has the OS and my other non-FS programs on it. Recently the large drive failed and I had to replace it. After I thanked the Almighty that all my FS stuff was safe, when i started up the computer most of my icons on the desktop were gone including that for FSX. I tried to start FSX from inside the small drive by double clicking on the FSX application icon therein. When I did this I received the following message: "The MSXML4 SP2 component is not installed. Please reinstall Flight Sim to restore or repair this missing component." I'm happy to reinstall fsx, but I'm hoping I won't have to reload all my hundreds of add-ons. If I insert disk one and follow the directions of the original FSX Gold edition, will it still recognize all the add ons already installed on the same drive? Hope I'm asking this correctly and I appreciate your help in advance. It wasn't 6 months ago when I had a corrupted operating system and lost everything - then I had to reload everything and it took me over 3 months to do so. Would sure hate to have to do that again. . . Thanks much!! Donn
  6. Hi all, Help needed. I'm trying to install Win7 from DVD on new system build (latest 6700K & ASUS ROG Mobo) without a CDRom drive. I have a USB 3.0 stick that I made bootable and copied over the disk files but It still fails to install. Getting a missing drivers dialog during beginning of install. I also tried by making an iso and putting that on the stick and it too failed stating no bootmgr was found. Any suggestions on how to proceed are greatly appreciated. Mike
