Recentley I have tried to use Flight Sim 2004 and I have only got as far as seeing the splash screen and then its just about to load onto the homepage and then it goes back to the computer desktop?! I have tried to uninstall and then install a couple of times and have cleaned the dik numerous times, but no change. It is extremely annoying because I have spent nearly £500 on addons and joiysticks etc.... Does anyone have any suugestions. If so it would be greatly appreciated.
Could you give us your computer specs?
Thanks for replying so quickly.
My computer spec is a 1700 processer with 500 mb RAM but it has worked before apparentley so its not the spec.

Hi-jacking a thread can be confusing to all.
Be sure that you have a flight folder in "My Documents" and have the latest Directx (9.0c).
Yes I do have Direct X (9.0c) I have just downloaded it. And in my documents thee is a file called flight simulator files. Which holds 2 icons both containing Previous Flight?
what happened between it working and it not working?
did you load some other software?
did you load some aircraft?
did you change any hardware?
do you run XP? if so try doing a restore to a date when you know it worked?

The Flight Simulator Files folder found in My Documents can be compared to History in your Browser.
You can ignore it completely - you can even delete it, it won't effect the Sim at all.
If you delete it, it will rebuild itself as soon as you run the Sim the next time.
The suggestions about oleacc.dll (linked in the post by greekman) would certainly be worth a try.
I contacted Microsoft with the problem and they also suggested the oleacc.dll and it now works again fine. Thanks for the help everyone. Your always here to help everone with the game!
