Here are the two problems that are causing difficulties in my using FS9 (FS 2004):
Hopefully, some of you folks have found solutions and would pass them along to me.
1)All of the simulator's "Settings" always revert to the "Default" settings after exiting and restarting.
In other words, all "Settings" have to be reset prior to each new flight.
Is there a way to set them once and for all??
Or, is the current reversion to "Default" settings the way it's supposed to work??
2)Every time I exit the Simulator, it "hangs" with a small black box screen left on my desktop, which, after 30-45 seconds, then shows a Microsoft Error Screen with the message "Microsoft Flight Simulator 9.0 has encountered a problem and needs to close".
There is a tiny checkbox (checked) to "ReStart Microsoft Simulator", which if left "checked" further complicates the full shutdown problem.
Any known solution to this shutdown problem??
Many thanks for any and all help that can be offered.
