FSX installation nightmare heads up

Nunzio Guest

Fellas

Just spent 2 hours with microsoft tech support regarding an installation problem..

Disc 1 installs fine, insert disc 2.. nothing.. computer hangs.. freaking nightmare..

MS tech guy tells me there are compatibility issues with Roxio and Nero. He has me uninstall roxio and nero, FSX just finished installing.

I'm now looking at the FSX splash screen. FSX loading. Looks like it will run.

FYI I'm on a XPS 700 core duo..

If all is well (looks OK now) I'll reinstall nero, I can live without roxio...

Just a heads up.

Cheers

Nero was the one that gave me problems loading.

I'll bet it was Nero 7. Nero 6 didn't give me any problem.

I have Nero 7 Ultra and it didn't cause me problems...

I took out NERO and Roxio and still have the same problem. Any other suggestions?

Interesting, just double-checked. Nero 6.6 OEM.

I didn't uninstall Nero when I installed FSX. I don't know if this is relevant at all, but I don't have a Quickstart Icon in my Notification Area for Nero.
So if I require Nero's services, I call it up through the start menu.

Maybe there is also an issue with different codecs people might have installed - I don't know because I really only have the basics needed for my ripping.
