install question

Recommended Posts

I'm considering installing WideFS. FSX is currently running on Vista32. My second computer that I want to use to run FSC is XP Professional. Will these two cooperate?

Yes. My own systems run FSX on Vista SP1 and all my clients are on XP SP2.

Make sure the workgroup name is the same on both -- I always name mine "PETES" in any case, but if you leave them to default I think Vista chooses a different name tp XP. It doesn't affect networking except in a few places, such as Broadcasts, and WideFS uses Broadcasts from the Server to save you having to configure the Clients.
