My computer with windows xp crashed. I now have a new computer running windows 8. I installed my fsone v1 and hangar pack 1 but when I click on the desktop icon to start the sim I get a flash of a black screen, then a message about a problem causing the sim to stop working correctly and windows is shutting it down. I tried a compatibility change in the program properties using windows guidance over and over. One time and one time only, during one of the tests, the sim did load and I was even able to complete the hangar pack 1 install. I could choose an aircraft and fly it.
After shutting down the program I have not been able to restart it even when I recreate the settings of which made the program work during the troubleshoot. I have contacted Microsoft and fsone but they have no answers. I have searched on line for similar problems but have found nothing.
Thank you for any help you can give.
