    Spend most of my twilight hours flying vintage aircraft of the 30's through to the 60's recreating flights that I hasd been involved in during my time with the Royal New Zealand Airforce.

  1. Well Volker, I have followed your instructions to the letter and I am still no further ahead with my problem. I re-installed FS9 into Windows 7 C:/Program Files (x86) Microsoft Games/Flight Simulator 2004 and, FSX into E:/Program Files (x86) Microsoft Games/Flight SimulatorX. Both programs are running perfectly. I then re-installed FSC94 into Drive NTFS E:/FSC and that is also working okay but on a Secondary screen, which I have always done when running all 3 programs under Windows XP for the last few years with no problems ever. Under windows 7, I am still getting error message after running FSCDb Manager "Run-time error '75' Path/File access error". Also when I click on the Menus GPS to load the GPS into a aircraft I get this message: Unable to connect to Simulator! Msg #7. Similarly with trying to add a flight plan . So all in all I feel that the programmers should with all due respect to the fine work they have done to date look into the matter and come up with a fix for Windows 7. kindest regards, Don Lyons P.S. Yes! I am a 86 year old flight simmer going right back to when Flight Simming first came into being. Unfortunately my life span is pretty well limited due to lung cancer. and I would dearly love to get this program running perfectly again, so that I can live my dream to fly a Airbus A380-800 from Auckland to London and return; which I did in reality a couple of months ago as a paying passenger. WOW!! what a great ex[experience. So please, please help me out. You Guys!
  2. I have upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 Pro with the additional installation of Windows XP mode availability. I re-installed my FS9 in Drive C:/Programs (x86) and my FSX into Drive E:/Programs(x86). Once they were up and running okay I then re-installed FSC9.4.1 into the E:/ drive as per instructions for Windows 7 and 8 users. However, when tryinh to connrct the GPS to either Flight Sims I get the message Unable to connect to Simulator! Msg #7. Also when running the DbManager, which picks up the thread of the flightsims okay; but at the end a note comes up Run-time error '75' Path/File access error.. I have never had problems when running windows xp . Can you assist me please to get these errors corrected. regards, Don Lyons
  3. Thankyou all for your responses. I guess my problem stems from flying a Handley Page Hastings which has a configured Final Approach at 100 kts with a touchdown speed at 80-90 kts. Is there anyway of reconfiguring FS Commander to adjust the touchdown speeds of aircraft which have a higher sped than that of the fixed 60kts. Maybe it could be looked at in a future update of the program. regards to all, Don

  6. I have searched the forum for a possible answer to a problem that has appeared when finishing a long flight of up to several hours duration, but to no avail. My problem is that when I Plan a lengthy flight from New Zealand to Japan. The Flight Plan records all waypoints correctly up until the final landing destination; which I understand it should automatically record the landing immediately on touchdown at the arrival airport, and I assume transfers all the data recorded by the flight plan directly into the logbook, provided of course that I have activated the Autolog and that the L is indicating the colour red. However, this is not happening; and, the final line of the flight plan is not registering a time of touchdown, hence no recorded flight in the logbook. Is there some other action that is required by me to ensure correct recording of these lengthy flights, which are carried out with overnight stops enroute. When completing a local flight of less than a few hours everything appears to record coreectly. Can anyone out there come up with a solution please. Happy flying to you all! :D
