Recommendations for Microsoft Windows Vista and 7

Microsoft Flight Simulator X (Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D as well) is a legacy product. This means that the product is no longer supported by Microsoft. It also means that the product was developed before Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Windows 7 came along.

Here are some suggestions for running Microsoft Flight Simulator X with Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Windows 7:

  1. Run Microsoft Flight Simulator X in WINDOW MODE only (this tip is very important for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004). FULL SCREEN mode may look nice, but can cause Microsoft Flight Simulator X and add-ons to run erratically with Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Windows 7.
  2. Adjust the Microsoft Flight Simulator X Program Properties:
    • RIGHT CLICK on the Microsoft Flight Simulator X program icon and select PROPERTIES from the dialog.
    • Choose the COMPATIBILITY TAB
    • Set as depicted:

fsx
