Back on the forum after a long absence.
Just got a new laptop with Vista Home Premium and installed FSX Standard.
Tried to install extra aircraft but not having much success.
The file is: harfsx23.zip.
I have followed my old (XP) procedure and unzipped with folder names to a new unzipped folder and the files are all there. I then followed the advice in the readme.txt and copied various files over to the right folder in the aircraft folder for FSX but nothing now shows and the aircraft doesn't appear when I start FSX.
I also needed FSUICP and have downloaded the latest version and installed using the self extractor and this appears in the modules folder as the readme says so that seems OK.
I know that VISTA has a strange way of copying/moving files (not got my head around it yet) so wondered if there was something I need to do to copy the files from the unzipped folder to their correct place in the aircraft folder.
Would unzipping direct to the aircraft folder work?
Also what about self installing extras do they normal install OK with VISTA or do I need to do something differnet with them.
