    Default Windows compatibility

    I have FS 2004 Century of Flight and I ran it on Window 7 or 8 computer. I purchased a new computer with Windows 10 and now my flight simulator will not run. Says I have to have administrator permission to run program. How do I fix this issue?

    Right click and choose "run as administrator"

    @ jackmaxcy…

    This is the same question you ask on this THREAD - see my response there to permanently set the Run as Administrator option

    DO NOT install into C:\Program Files (x86)\
    Install into C:\
    Right Click the Desktop Shortcut
    Select Properties
    Select 'Compatibility tab'
    A drop down menu appears > Select XP
    Then, at the bottom of the window, TICK 'Run as Administrator'
    The Sim will now work!
