Problems with FMS and Windows xp.

I was running FMS on xp before, but now the 8.5 version will not work since I had to redo xp, is anyone else having this problem with 8.5? Thanks for any help.

What specifically does that mean?

Does FMS function properly using keyboard controls?
Which interface or controller are you using?
Have you tried a system restore?

It installs just fine, but when I try to run the program, it says it has to close, and do I want to send an error message to Bill Gates. Version 2 beta 7 seems to work however. I am now loading different planes and next, will try to get an old Futaba RC Aerocopper flight simulator box to work with it. Any input on why 8.5 doesn't want to work? Thanks

Thanks for the reply, I will try installing it later, after I get my tx working with FMS.

FMS V2.0 Alpha 8.5

I am running FMS V2.0 Alpha 8.5 on XP Professional SP2 using (pci) ATI 7000(32meg) and Sidewinder Pro with no problems, frame rates in the 70's with panorama scenes with collisions and everything cranked as high as it will go in FMS, (Using XP 1400 processor running at about 1000, bout 175meg of memory).
Runs fine, no problems...


Run a dxdiag check and see if direct X indicates that something is wrong. Direct X can check your sound and joystick stuff with the video card.

For some stange unkown reason I have it working now. 8.5 gave me an error message and shut down. I installed 2 beta 7, and it worked good. I then installed 8.5 over the top of 7, and now 8.5 is working perfect. I was unable to get that silly RC Aerochopper serial controller to work, tried all the tricks I founds online. Found the E sky controller and FMS 8.5 on Ebay for 30, and now eveythings is working super. I downloaded all the new add on planes for FMS, many I never heard of. So now I can play. Thanks for all the replies and help with this.
