Thread: FSX reinstall - drat!!

  1. #1

    Cool FSX reinstall - drat!!

    Had a sudden crash of windows10 on my rig yesterday, wouldnt boot past a black screen so had to do a WinRE and a system reset. Ultimately i lost the lot but thankfully all backed up on a HDD.
    Now reinstalled FSX Deluxe boxed with SP1 and SP2 without a hitch tbh (just did the PartMgr rename in the registry all aok.
    Reinstalled UTX Europe and GEX and HD Airport Graphics and gotta say it looks fab with no scenery addons at all so for once i am gonna leave the old girl alone, just adding Traffic Global tomorrow and thats me done with tinkering!
    Got some addon aircraft to install but i aint adding no skins/scenery/et al again. It runs fab and looks good.
    JUST SAYING :-)

    Believe you got off cheap. When adding your a/c go one at a time and test. win10 is full of mysteries, could be one causing the stirr, process of elimination.

    It was a real bonus having the ability to do a reset with win10 tbh otherwise god knows what i would have done - full windows install i guess?? Trouble is the reset uninstalls almost all your apps/programs/...etc but leaves useless shortcuts behind on the desktop making it appear you have been 'saved'. The cruelty of windows LOL

    My Win10 didn't lose anything when I reinstalled it. It even restored apps I had such as Advanced System Care and Smart Defrag 7....

    Mine was a reset instead of a reinstall obviously two different things i guess? some stuff remained like documents etc but i think the reset puts the registry to default? IL2 REDCORE still worked that !!!
