I have read a few posts that Windows Vista works with FS2004. How about add ons like the PMDG 737, Ultimate Traffic by flight one, and Captain Sim 727? I just got a new computer, and before trying to reinstall, I thought I would ask ahead first. I have FSX and it works fine, but I can't afford all the add ons I want right now, so I am thinking about reverting to my FS2004 in the meantime.


Thanks!

Many addons have problems with user access control and some other weird security settings. I have two disks in my computer, installed XP and all pre Vista software on one and Vista and new software only on the other, and am happy with this setup.

I would suggest you getting back in FS9 and XP as well. My HDD is shared in two parts. He use Vista (crap in my opinion) and in other hand I use XP (satisfied with it  Smile).
I have tried playing FS9 on Vista but it occurs so many problems.

Even FSX is faster under XP than under Vista, unless you switch on DX10 preview and have a good card and drivers - but there are no addons for the DX10 preview but very very few...

Will any of your addons work on FS9 running Vista?

This is what I just got, and wondered what you think regarding it working on Vista. I can always go back to XP, but I would prefer to stay with Vista since I am getting used to it. I just bought FS2004 again, because my 4th disk broke. I found this bundled package to go with it!


The following add-on software comes in the bundle:

1. PC Aviator Mega City USA 2005 San Francisco

2. Flight 1 Ultimate Traffic for Microsoft Flight Simulator

3. PC Aviator MegaScenery USA 2004 for Microsoft Flight Simulator Volume 3

4. Abacus Airbus A380 Add-on for MSFS 2004

5. PMDG Boeing 737 NG 600/700 Add-on for MSFS 2004

6. Just Flight Boeing 727 Professional add-on for MSFS 2004

That's a strange bundle, having so severe competitors bundled makes me think. Either times for FS9 software are worse than even I assume, or ...

Just an update for everyone. Everything works flawlessly! In fact, everything runs like a dream. I still have FSX installed, and will use it every now and then.

Next question...

Is there a download to not have to use disk 4 to run FS9?

I run FS9, PSS Just Flight 777 Pro, with Vista on a laptop computer and it does just fine. (Although when I start up a flight sometimes, FS9 crashes and have to restart.) It all depends on the force, memory, and video/graphics capability your machine has in order for everything to fly. No pun intended.

Good luck,
Carlisle

Yes, there is what they call a "no CD crack". Just Google it and you'll find plenty of links. It's really easy to do. Here's a link you can check out...

FS9 on Vista works fine. I am using it on Vista Ultimate x64 without any problems so far. All addons I tried worked fine as well.
