    It's for FS 2004. That is why it won't install or run.

    FS98 is three versions behind FS 2004.

    Edit: Or do you have the FS98 version?

    Hi pstoa. Were you able to install the scenery after all? Where did you get the MegaScenery Pacific Northwest for FS98? I"ve been looking for a copy for a while?

    If you have FS98 installed on the program files folder, perhaps you should try installing it to the root c:\ drive. There is a chance the installer can't access the program files folder. You can also try creating a fake directory in the c:\ drive with the FS98.exe and cfg files, etc and installing it there then copying everything over. Just some ideas.

    Hi the loader is odd I tried what was kindly suggested but no. It says unable to create folder for hi res in normal install or if you custom inst it says not enough room on disk which has gigs of space. Ihave it working but displays blank colour plates in city areas where hi res should work but everywhete else the so called low res is stunning.

    Hi pstoa. I know it's 5 yrs after the original post but here's what worked for me (painful but it does work). Pacific NW installs fine on windows 98 machines (yuck). So I did that and then upgraded to windows XP to make it tolerable. I've made that machine (an old one in my basement) a dedicated standalone for fs98 and the many add ons I have for it. What I haven't tried that you might want to is to copy the entire installed directory to another more current machine. Good luck.
