Help - Game crashes....

Guest

I've just installed FS2004 but when I come to start the game the screen goes black for a few seconds (I can see a curser) and then it returns to the desktop saying the the application has encountered a problem and needs to close.

I can post the tech info for the crash if it helps...

Anybody got any ideas? I'm running version 9.1 as far as I can tell (just installed an update)

Thanks...

If you installed the MS patch and didn't follow the directions to the letter it will crash.
See if you have a Flight Simulator folder in "My Documents".
If you still have the problem tell us the error message and your system specs.

Try uninstalling the update.
Did it run before you updated it.
What was the error message.

After you have installed the FS9 Patch. Run FS9 it will more than likely crash but that's OK. Download this update Config off of Avsim. Do a search for this

fs9_msfs2004cfg.zip

Once installed follow the instructions and then start FS9. This should have worked. It happened to me awhile ago.
This config seemed to have worked for mw.

I know the exact solution. I had it before aswell 😉

Go into your FS2004 main folder and delete "OLEACC.DLL". It is either in the main folder or the modules folder. Then it should work.

🙂 Best of Luck
