    A Lazarus thread! But an interesting one.

    My flights are quite random - fire up the sim, pick an aircraft, pick a couple of cities, generate a flight plan, and go. Often skip the plan and...

    My apologies if I misunderstood the implications of "iFly 747 @ $59.95; PS 747 @ $400.00 - you do the math".

    If flying airliners we don't have a copilot, navigator, flight engineer, or radio man. The GPS lightens our load a bit.

    I've paid $15-$35 for several payware aircraft and felt they were worth that. But you would be hard pressed to convince me any single add-on aircraft for a ten year old sim is worth, with all...

    Profit is one thing. $400 for one add-on aircraft is, in my opinion, ridiculous. If I could justify that expense I'd be building a new computer, not adding one more aircraft to my current FS9...

    Did you try right-click on FS9.exe and "run as administrator"?

    I believe there is a problem with the links the default weather uses (the sim is ten years old). Try Active Sky or REX for real world weather, though both are payware. (I prefer the former, it...

    Any AV program will have a false positive occasionally, looks like yours wasn't this time (I'd rather investigate a dozen false readings than have one malware slip through). When in doubt, and if...

    If you are using a download manager or accelerator, make sure it makes no more than two simultaneous connections to flightsim.

    I am insufferably lazy.

    I don't think it requires an external program to accomplish this, but it may have to be built into the model; the Digital Aviation Do-27 has some nice shakes and shudders if not handled properly.

    If memory serves me well you must have ground power or APU before doing anything else.
