    No way to access your video. If all you see is the "Splash Screen" try deleting you logbook.bin in My Documents/Flight Simulator X folder.

    Can't activate the link, BUT ---

    I have a similar problem with FSX-SE at times. I have an Icon in my tray, but no display. SO, I hit CNTR-ALT-ENTER and it displays in full screen mode, nor menu bar. Hitting CNTR-ALT-ENTER again brings it into window mode successfully, no menu bar. Pressing ALT then displays menu bar.

    It only happens randomly for me, but may help you ou. Can't hurt to try it.

    I've had that happen a few times in multiple games that tried to immediately start in FULL SCREEN. Why not try a more gentle jump into flight;

    you can start in the sim Menu and then go to a windowed display after the game is under way...

    Insure that the following two parameters are set in the FSX.cfg (the copy in your users appdata\microsoft\FSX folder - not the copy in the install folder)

    1 to Start in the menu instead of a flight...

    in the FSX.cfg [STARTUP] section, set SHOW_OPENING_SCREEN=1 (the "create a flight" menu window)

    2 Show a Windowed display first

    in the [Main] section, set Maximized=2 (a maximized window)
    (0 is the 'restore' size window, 1 is Full Screen )

    Save the changes then start the game.

    3 once in the startup menu go in the settings section, make sure the display is set to your screen's optimum size/resolution - this display size selection only applies to Full Screen mode anyway. After the flight is running in Windowed mode, ONLY THEN press Alt+Enter to go into Full Screen if you want that display.

    If this doesn't fix it, and you haven't built a new fsx.cfg, trying that and these changes could also help.

    Good luck.

    ok I finally got my fsx working, but now I want download an aircraft to fsx steam but for some reason on step 3 below of installation guide it say download these textures, but I looked in my default fsx a321 folder but the files are not there. please help.

    1) unzip folder to a suitable folder, your desktop for example.
    2) copy the sound and folders from your default FSX Airbus_A321 into the new Tom_A330-300 folder.
    3) copy the following files from your default FSX Airbus_A321/panel folder into the new Tom_A330-300/panel.330 folder:
    do not copy other files from this folder!
    4) copy the following files from your default FSX Airbus_A321/texture folder into the new Tom_A330-300/texture.DR folder:
    do not copy other files from this folder!
    5) repeat step (4) with Tom_A330-300/texture.NW and Tom_A330-300/texture.QA as new targets.
    6) move the entire Tom_A330-300 folder into your FSX aircraft folder.
    7) Unzip all files from the lighteffects folder into your FSX/effects folder
