View Full Version : FS9 does not start even after uninstalling IE7
11-11-2007, 05:22 PM
Half a year ago I have installed IE7 which caused FS9 stop working (like already described on forum). Deleting the oleacc.dll in FS9 main folder was not helpful and because I did not have time for simming I uninstalled both FS9 and IE7. Today I reinstalled FS9 but there is no change, although there is no IE7 any more. Programs starts with initial screen, than it goes in full screen mode turning black, then it crushes - completely the same way as happened with installed IE7.
I don't have any idea why it happens and would appreciate help.

Are you starting up with the Default Flight (default Cessna at Seattle) ?
If not, try saving and deleting your current FS9.cfg and allow FS2004 to create a new, default one when it next starts. This will give you the initial startup selection screen with the default Cessna in Windowed Mode.
Black screens and crashes are often an indication of graphic driver problems. Have you updated your drivers since you last uninstalled FS2004 ?

Yes, I suppose I am starting with default flight (I did not change anything in CFG file). After the loading screen there is a very brief flash (barely noticeable) of starting screen (that one where user selects flights etc) and then FS crushes.
Beside installing IE7, and then uninstalling it, the only change in system was installation of genuine WinXP Pro, because the previous one was cracked version.
System I use is old one, but still enough for my needs: P4 1,3 GHZ, 512 Mb RDRAM, 32 Mb GForce2 MX 400.

Regretably your system is extremely modest for FS2004, especially the graphics card.
Whilst your system may be OK for most other applications, FS2004 is pretty demanding, and I fear that your system is insufficient for the job. Even if you could get it to load correctly the performance would be likely to be at the low end of acceptable.
I'm assuming that your graphics card is of the AGP-slot sort, so it might be possible to pick up a better card fairly cheaply. Look for one with at least 64Mb RAM.
