Thread: FS 2000 Professional Edition patch2B missing DLL for Windows 7

  1. Default FS 2000 Professional Edition patch2B missing DLL for Windows 7

    I installed Flight Simulator 2000 Professional Edition. Then used the "special" FS2000.EXE that allows it to run in windows 7~10.

    THANK YOU Blaine White...

    2. During install ran custom install to disk root directory - i.e. C:\FS2000
    3. Installed complete (including all of scenery cd disk 2).
    4. Copied into c:\FS2000 the no-cd version of FS2000.exe
    5. Right clicked c:\FS2000\FS2000.exe and set to run as administrator in compatability for Windows 98.

    Running beautifully from desktop shortcut together with added-in aircraft.
    Yea it works!

    Would like to install a FS 2000 update patch so put the original FS2000.EXE back and tried to run the patch installer.

    Got this error with first patch below...

    FS2000 Professional Edition Patch
    X Error loading W95INF32.DLL


    How to fix this?

    Also found 2 different patches

    FS2000_Pro_Update2B.exe 8.89mb
    and
    FS2000_Pro_Patch_Signed.exe 8.62mb

    What is difference in two patches?

    Seriously,

    Over a 180 views and nobody with Windows 7~10 has attempted to install the patches to FS 2000?

    Why am I always a pioneer with my issues?

    I got the same dll error. But, I got the patch to work running it in Windows XP (Service Pack 2) compatibility mode and also running it as administrator.

    Also, I did also see that other patch file out there (FS2000_Pro_Patch_Signed.exe). I don't know what the difference is, but FS2000_Pro_Update2B.exe is the one I used at it worked fine.
