    Hi,

    Nope, MS does not look at your stuff, like that. You have a installation
    memory corruption, or you need to free some memory to run the program. If it
    is a new powerful machine you might have to go to DOS prompt and start it from
    there, or make a bootdisks, the newer the machine the more fiddling it takes to
    get the older sims to work. BUT, like you sad don't delete the old look at the
    structures of the folder you might see something.

    Gymnastically Yours,
    Terry W. Wheelock PdD.

    I have just bought a new computer & went through the FS% installation
    procedure according to the Handbook,using the original disks..All was well till
    the cover picture came on,then I got the message about a "fatal error", with a
    number 039 & another number (that looked like a memory location)

    I noticed on the disk wrapper a note that I must delete FS5 from my old
    computer or buy a new software. Is there a secret code which tells Microsoft
    that I have not yet erased the old copy?
    I am reluctant to delete it until I'm sure the progrram runs OK on the new
    computer.
    Any ideas or info where I could get an answer? ( MS doesn't support this
    version now?)

    There is a upgrade patch for FS5 on Pentium machines
    It updates to FS5a
    This stops the fatal error ocurring on my PC
    File is FS50A.EXE, approx 1.4Kb
    If you can't find this file, email me.

    PS: Have you ever seen a F-4 for FS5 with a Drag Chute ??

    Thanks for your reply, I cannot find the file on my disk ,and don't know a web
    site with the info. My computer has a Celeron CPU (536Mz) so think the patch
    should work . I would aoppreciate it if you would Email the file,or point me
    to a web site to download it.
    Though I've had FS5 for 5 yrs I'm new at searching the web for F/S
    add-ons, so haven't seen the F4. Doug H. [email protected]
