Thread: FS98 won't start in Windows 8.1

  1. Unhappy FS98 won't start in Windows 8.1

    I installed FS98 on my laptop running Windows 8.1, 64-bit. When I start the program, I get an error box right away that says:

    Flight Simulator Module has stopped working

    If I go to the Event Viewer, I see this warning:

    The file could not be processed by the application C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\FltSim98.EXE because it requires Indeo® Decoders of type IV41

    I am running the program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and Reduced color mode, 16-bit, but it still doesn't work. Does anyone know of a way I can get it to run? Thanks.

    Some software can be more problematic when using the 64 Bit version of an OS. I had that issue with my laptop till I switched from Windows 7 64 Bit to Windows 7 32 bit.

    I got this to work using Oracle VM Virtualbox (which is free) running Windows XP. FS98 is back in business!

  4. Default

    Windows XP runs anything!
