Odd issue with MSFS 2004 and Vista

Posted: 09-23-2008, 06:33 AM

Hello!

I've tried searching to no avail.

It seems my FS2004 installation hates me. I recently upgraded to the
new rig with Vista and installed my old favorites. However FS2004 seems
to hate me something fierce.

I finally got it to load properly - however now after about 30 seconds
rendered in the world the game freezes to black screen then crashes and
restarts. The aircraft and location do not seem to make a difference.

I'm currently loading up in the default situation (cessna on the runway
in SEA) and again about 20-30 seconds after it's loaded the sim goes to
a black screen and stops responding.

I've turned off Aero and made the compatibility suggestions made in
other posts (relating to display features for legacy programs). Anyone
have any idea what could cause the sim to load and function properly for
the first 30 seconds and then crash without making any additional
inputs?

Sorry if this post makes no sense - I'm exceptionally tired atm.

Thanks in advance for any and all assistance - I'm super jazzed to
FINALLY have a computer that gives me great frame rates in new york area
with full AI and I can only drool for 30 seconds. :cry:

:geek:
