FS98 On WindowsXP?

Fri Jun 03, 2005 12:32 pm

I wanted to know if anyone here still uses Flight Simulator 98 on Windows XP? What about the dowloaded planes and scenery, do they work or will they if you use Windows XP? I just wanted to know (I don't want no blasting about getting FS2000 or any higher version of the flight sim).

I don't use FS98 anymore, but Windows XP has somthing called "Compatibility Mode" where you can choose which operating system you want to run the program on. If you right click the FS98 icon, go down to and click "Properties", click the "Compatibility" tab at the top of the pop-up screen and then check the check box where it says "Run this program in compatibility mode for: ". You'll then get the options of which operating system you want to run FS98 on.
