How do you get to the screen which actually shows if you can run Windows XP or not? Once you have done that, the rest of the install is irrelevant
Jonathan Winton (9 months ago)
Right click on the fsx shortcut which is created onto your desktop , select properties and you can select which operating system you want it to run in compatibility for

ABCDE FGHIJK (10 months ago)
For me, it will claim that it was installed, and the game will allow me to go through free flight, but it will force me to keep in disc 2. If I take disc 2 out, all traces of the game disappear from my C: drive except for a single file called "LogBook.bin" . When I keep the disc in (which I don't mind doing), and I look for all the game files (categories, configs, dialogues and simObjects), I get a bunch of random gibberish files instead, and one fsx.exe file which is the only thing I can open. Having played FSX for many years prior, I know all about errors and glitches from installing the game to playing it, but never have I experienced that before and would not begin to know how to fix it.
ABCDE FGHIJK (10 months ago)
Thank you. Jonathan. I did not find a fix, all it took was a 3 tries at downloading, and I finally I got it lucky. I actually also switched to X-plane 11, but plan to play both simulations.
Jonathan Winton (10 months ago)
That sounds very weird. Have a look at this forum post it may be able to help you. Im sorry I cannot personally offer any assistance in what is causing this problem. https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?293980-DVD-drive-won-t-install-FSX-in-Windows-10

windows 10 i have installed the game before so I know it works (thank you for replying)
Jonathan Winton (1 year ago)
Not entirely what is causing that i'm afraid. It could be a faulty disk drive or many other things. What version of windows are you running ?

Hmm that is weird. Try looking into the FSX installation forum by googling ''FSX installation disc 2 wont work''
ryan_goldman (1 year ago)
I have a question about my disc and it would really help to have this answered please. When I install and everything it works fine and I can play the game. But when I exit the game it does not let me play it again if I want to. I will take the disk out and put it back in, and when it asks me what I want to do with it, I hit run disk. After that it does nothing at all. So basically I can install the game, play it once, and when I exit the game it won’t let me play again until I uninstall and re install the game. Please can somebody answer this question I have.
L1Lmelo (11 months ago)
Thank you! I was facing the same issue,
Jonathan Winton (1 year ago)
Basically once you have installed the game from the disc you should not have the installation disc in your drive. Install FSX Remove the disk Navigate to the main FSX folder in C Drive Then run FSX.exe as Administrator.

Nkululeko Nkosi (1 year ago)
I am overcome with desperation. My FSX (Deluxe Edition) disk 1 works fine but disc 2 (which I believe is the one to use when launching FSX) does nothing. When I click "Install or run program from your media" nothing happens. Please help as I do not know what to do.
Jonathan Winton (1 year ago)
You dont need disc 2 in to launch fsx once youve installed it. Sounds like you have a problem either with your discs or operating system. Not entirely sure.
Hi. I have problem: at the final of the installation, appears "Please Insert the Disk labeled FSX Disk 2". How can I solved this? Thank you.
LachieVid S (1 year ago)
What you do is you take out disk 1 and put disk 2 in
RubTheCat (1 year ago)
But this error happens while Disk 2 IS already inserted, just when the installation is almost finished. Clicking OK doesn't work. Ejecting and reinserting Disk 2 doesn't fix it. Creating a disk image and trying to install from the mounted image also causes the same problem.
Daniel Mahnov (1 year ago)
there are lots of ppl with the same problem, after inserting disk 2 it continues installation and then again appears "...insert disk 2..."
Jonathan Winton (1 year ago)
You insert Disk 2.

Can someone help me? I installed it last night and ran it, but now I can't find it. I got a brand new computer to run it, and now I can't even uninstall it to try and reinstall it again. Any help is appreciated
Jonathan Winton (1 year ago)
Try looking in Program files (X86?) - Micorosft Games and you should see 'Microsoft Flight Simulator X' in there. If it isnt then it may not have installed correctly. Failing that re-insert Disc 1 of your FSX Version, and select to either repair or re-install flightsim (presuming that it has installed). If on the other hand it hasnt installed then it will give you the option to install a fresh evrsion of FSX.

when you have a clean operating system, it downloads just like the first time you installed it, only thing is, you have to reinstall your add on scenery

The only other option I found was to uninstall the windows Update version which automatically installs when you install windows
TheDanishBaconLover (1 year ago)
When I it comes to the last part of the installation, at the where it says Registering Fonts or a error message comes up saying: "Error 1722: something did not finish as expected" and that there is something wrong with the "Windows Installer Package" then it says rolling bac action (because it's removing what it has installed i guess) and then another message pops up saying "Error: -1603 Fatal error during installation. Consult Windows Installer Help (Msi.chm) or MSDN for more information." PLZ HELP!!

Jonathan Winton (1 year ago)
Unfortunatley when it comes to FSX Steam I have no idea at all. Im still using the disc version of FSX Accelleration (on Windows10).
Marian Samol (1 year ago)
My fsx also doesn't want to install. Everything is fine and i get to the install manue. Then i clicked installing and it seemed to work. Tough i only came to little message that says removing applications. It loads up 5 blue bars and then the installing process seems to freeze. I can minimize the window and do something else on the pc so im sure its not the fault of my pc hardware. System configurations needed it says 1ghz single core and 15GB free space on the hard drive. I have around 350 GB free space and a 2,5 ghz intel celeron dual core. So it really cant be my hardwares fault. Im waitig since about 45 mins tough i think it should not take that long
Jonathan Winton (1 year ago)
It should in theory. Other than that if the activation page doesnt pop up then you can contact Microsoft via their activation system where they can do it remotely for you. On the other hand if you want to revert back to your original FSX config (before you installed Accelleration) then insert your accelleration CD in and select it to Remove acceleration. Then insert disc 2 of FSX and select 'Repair' and it will go back to the way you had it before you installed acceleration.
Jonathan Winton (1 year ago)
Thats helpful, thanks for shairng that. I did find some compatability issues installing FSX on my Windows10 64Bit system but I only had the problem installing it after I had installed Windows10 Build 1511. I;ve no idea what it was but as soon as I rolled it back to the first build it worked fine. The only thing I could suggest for you activating your Acceleration pack is by calling microsoft on their activation system (you will need a serial number on the page first which you can then use to acitvate it).
Marian Samol (1 year ago)
It's the 64 Bit version. I was finally able to install it completely and it runs with no further problems. After reinstalling it a couple times surprisingly it worked. I even installed mods wich are working quite well. Now i have 2 different questuins: 1.) I wanted to install fsx acceleration via cd what worked but i was not able to activate it 2.) If i should be able to activate it: Will my mod still be there Thanks for your fast help
Jonathan Winton (1 year ago)
Are you installing it on Windows 10 32bit or 64?
Mohamed Elmaradi (1 year ago)
Hi everyone,So I'm trying to do a reinstall of Flight Simulator X right? Well, I get to the end of the install and it seems to finish fine until two consecutive errors appear on screen: I get errors 1722 and -1603, the latter asking me to contact MSDN (MS Dev. Network)... I've been checking the internet all over for solutions and have even tried a MS remedy for the 1722 error, but no luck. I've been looking for 5 months now for a solution, but nothing seems to work. Please help! Thanks!P.S.

Why dont you just buy a windows 7 version on line and install it on a clean drive, you now have the best of both worlds.
Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
Sorry to hear that. Error 1603 seems to be quite a complex problem even beyond installing fsx. Have a look at some of the Microsoft help forum https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/834484

Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
Hi Mikael. Alot fo people have had a similar proble, I also had this problem. The reason it wont uninstall is because te game files are stored somewhere hidden on the hardrive. because of this it essentially tells your disk that FSX is still installed on your PC when really it isnt. The only way I got around solving this problem was re-installing Windows10 which takes a long time and can be a pain to do. Im sorry im unable to help you any further than that mate :(

​+Jonathan Winton I got the same problem as Julian. I right click FSX, like you said, hitting "install FSX". First window up is asking for approval of the disc making changes on my computer. After approving, "InstallShield Wizard" pops up, initiating the install. (Pre installing I guess, making the computer ready for the ultimate install). This is were it cancels, just a couple of seconds in, with the error message: 1628: Failed to complete the installation. Then the only thing you can decide to click is OK. The window disappears, and the story repeats itself. After the FSX icon disappeared from the desktop som time ago, and my previously saved flights wouldn't launch anymore (I got a frozen black screen out of it) , I too decided to uninstall FSX from my computer to reinstall it again. Never had these issues before. Using Windows 10.

Jonathan Winton if I right click on "install flight sim X", the advanced options prompt doesn't appear. Where can I find the advanced options prompt?

help when i right click on Microsoft Flight Simulator and click install it only said Preparing to install... it takes forever to install. My Laptop is Acer Aspire E15 does it support my computer?
Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
It could be that your system spec is not up to running FSX. Especially a laptop too
lwblack64 (2 years ago)
Mine would crash after I installed. But I found out why by reading up on backwards compatibility. Be sure you have TrueType disabled in Windows 10. That is all the compatibility issues that I had and it works like a charm now...
Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
It could be due to many issues. Im not sure im afraid sorry.

Mines keep saying Fsx has stopped working how do I fix this?
Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
+lwblack64 Ah that is interesting to note that. Thank's for pointing that out regarding TrueType. Always helps for some who are struggling still with compatibility issues.

Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
+Jandre F Go to C-Drive and search for fsx.exe and then create a shortcut to your desktop.
Altenholz (2 years ago)
Do i in any case have to install FSX right from scratch? I thought, it would be undertaken from my actual Windows 7 installation anyway.
Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
+Altenholz You will need to install it from scratch yes.

My fsx on Windows 10 doesn't show my loading progress after clicking fly now button and even having pressed escape button it does leave a black screen...Please help
Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
+Willy Taiti Try running FSX as Administrator, then press fly-now and it should load up. The other option would be to load FSX in windowed mode so that it will run on top of the desktop without crashing.

Hi Jonathan, I have installed FSX on PC, and completed a few flights, but when I have exited the programme I cannot find it anywhere! HELP!
Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
+ryanhadaway Best way to locate it is go into Program files X86 and navigate to Microsoft Game - Flight Simulator X, then in the folders below you will see at the very bottom of the pages FSX.EXE, right click on it and ''Add to Desktop (create Shortcut)'' and then you should see it there.

I need help please...i just installed fsx on my windows 10 is success but when i try to install pmdg i got problem that could not find a location fsx.cfg. how to fix it? thx before
Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
+lingkan pradana Uninstall your PMDG 737. Then reinstall it, but this time when you run the 8/900 installer run it as Administrator and make sure that the default location that the installer chooses is indeed your fsx location. Give that a go

+Euan Tulip I installed FSX onto my Windows 10 computer very recently. Mine stayed on removing applications for a while, but it does eventually work. Try giving it 20 or 30 minutes.
Jonathan Winton (2 years ago)
+Euan Tulip Are you running it as administrator?
