    Awhile for me

    1997 start here on Flightsim.com
    FS 7, 9, (skipped 8), X.
    Didn't bite on P3D or MSFS.
    Happy with beautiful FS X. No CTDs, no VAS issues. Great aircraft.

    Open root folder and double click on the FSX executable. That should start FSX. If that works, then create a new FSX icon on your desktop.
    Hope this helps.

    Yeah, thanks Wim. As I said, I didn't expect it to be an original idea. On the other hand, I don't see the need for an application for this. It is trivially simple.
