Use Windows 7???


Recommended Posts

I've been running FS9 under Windows 7 for about 7 years with no problems. If you do experience trouble right click on the FS9 Icon, go down and click on "Properties", select the "Compatability" Tab, click to check the compatability box and select another mode, e.g., Windows XP (Service Pack 3), then click on "Apply", "OK" and try to see if that works for you.

I'm running fs9 on windows xp, but my tech is pushing me to use windows 7. I ran a search but can't fibnd any info about w7. Isn't there some configurations necessay?





Just curious .....

Why is your "tech" pushing you to use Windows7? I've been using XP since the beginning with no problems even to this date.

If it ain't broke .... why fix it?

I just went from XP 32 bit to Wins 7 64 bit. The 'configuration' I needed to run FS9 was to use the 'No CD' patch. Only way I could make FS9 run. So now you know (Google 'FS9 No CD' to get links - but choose wisely the site to download from).

Just a thought, if you do upgrade, get a 64bit version of the operating system, with a minimum of 4GB RAM.

Even though FS2004 is a 32bit program, it will run far better in a 64bit version of the operating system.


VERY basically, a 32bit operating system will use a maximum of 4GB RAM, including that of the memory of your graphics card. A 64bit operating system will separate the two, letting FS2004 use 4GB on it's own, with the graphics card using its RAM separatly.


Hope this makes sense. OH, no configurations needed. apart from the the No CD solution.
