    I think you mis-understand me.

    If you rclick on most .exe files, you will see a choice on the menu that reads Run As Admin.

    Semper Fi, Steve!



    A lot of MSFSes, whether FS9, FSX, or whatever, don't work worth a rat's tail (ahem) without being in Admin. Especially in Win10, and double especially if the Sim is...

    Glad you got it! :)

    May I make a small suggestion? If you're gonna be FS9'ing much, you may want to make a shortcut on your desktop to places like where the FS9.cfg file is located (there is a few...

    Make sure you're looking in the folder located here: C:\Users\<YourUserNameHERE>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FS9

    A quick, easy, solution to problems like this: reset you default flight to the default that comes with the sim. C172 at Seattle, IIRC.
    Just open your FS9.cfg file with NotePad, or NotePad++. Ensure...

    Hi!
    Pots don't necessarily have a ground wire attached. The three wires on a pot are HI (resistance), LOW (or no resistance), and WIPER (the part that moves). The WIPER connection is where the...

    Two things to bear in mind: First, FSX:SE doesn't automatically make a DLL.XML for you. You have to create one of your own, in the right place. Looks like you've got the place locked down, so that's...

    First and foremost, is you default flight the sim's original default flight? The trike over Friday Harbour?
    If you try to make the default flight something else, the plane's internal variables won't...

    I'm afraid the authors made a small mistake, here. Probably never been at hi-power during an afterburner test.

    When I was learning gliders, I had to learn how to recognize the initial indications of spin entry, what a spin was actually like to encounter, and how to recover.

    It may have been added to FSX, after FS9 came out. Thus, the FSX engine can interpret it, but the FS9 can't.

    Sounds to me like you either need to put the choke on more, or you might have flooded it. Just check to see if you smell fuel from the exhaust pipe when you're cranking it. If so, it's flooded, if...
