FSOne on Windows 7


Hi all,

I've migrated to Windows 7 and now I'm moving my apps into it. I got RealFlight to install and execute with no issues. FSOne, however, loaded just fine, but when I try to run it I see a small window briefly appear, then switch to a flash of a full screen window, then the app quits with no message.

I've tried Compatibility mode but it doesn't have any effect.

Any suggestions?

It would be helpful if you provide more information about your system, most importantly:
- version of Windows 7, 32- or 64-bit
- video card and version of video drivers

I run FS One in Windows 7 with NVidia 8800GS card and the latest NVidia drivers Windows 7 installed (i.e., I haven't gone to NVidia site to download drivers myself). FS One works great, but I do have other software (most notably, Windows Media Center), which works not as reliably as in Vista 64. I attribute the differences to different drivers for video and TV cards, so, I'm waiting for hardware manufacturer to publish better Win7 drivers...

Windows 7 Ultimate, 64 bit. 8 GB RAM, Quad Core CPU at 3 GHz.

Running dual NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra video cards, with driver version 8.15.11.8593, dated 5/14/09

It ran just fine in Vista 64-bit.

I think I'll try installing it in my kid's computer. He's got Windows 7 home basic 32 bit. I'll post my results!

Device driver was bad. Upgrade fixed it.

I'm having the same problem running FS One with Windows 7 Ultimate. Was the driver you updated for the video card, or FS One's USB driver?

Thanks, Mike

It was the video card's driver. Once I updated that, everything worked.

I just installed my Dad's FSOne on his Windows 7 laptop. The flight is really slow on the new laptop and all the planes seem easy to fly. The old PC was 8 years old and barely met the min req. Any ideas how to get it to fly right on the new computer?
