So I made the transistion to Windows 7 and it is GREAT! My issue is this, my FS Disks were very scratched and couldn't even go past 2% installation. I backed up my entire Microsoft Games folder onto an external hard drive so I thought I would try running it from there. It loaded up like it was a brand new installation but as soon as it got to the main menu (went to the fly school page, I think thats the Introduction page) it crashed right back to the desktop.
I tried running as an Administrator with no luck. I think it's prolly because there are missing FS files that I have no idea where they are. I'm sure I'll be faced with a reinstall but I'm wondering if there are suggestions as to what the issue may be. Sounds like it could be a .dll error too, maybe too outdated for FS9 - Windows 7.
