So this is weird. I've been away from FS for a couple years due to other disctractions. Now, I'm getting back to it. I have a new speedy rig with the following spec's:
Windows Vista 32bit
Dell XPS420 Intel Core2 Quad CPU
I installed FS9 on it and when I click the desktop icon I instantly get an error message that says "Access Denied." It happens whether I have the disc in the drive or not, and regardless of which disc I have in the drive.
I have a screen capture, but I can't figure out how to post a picture here. I could send it in email to anyone who thinks they could help.
Anyway, has anyone ever seen anything like this before? Due to my desperation to get back into it, I have bought FSX, and it works fine.
