I recently downloaded a MELJET paint kit and installed it without any problems. However........When I start FS, I get the following:

ERROR - FS9

FS has detected a potentially incompatible aircraft or software.
FSSound.dll

Do you want to load this software?

Wether I hit "yes" or "no", loads just fine. What is this, and should I do anything to remedy it?

Very common, remove it and keep it safe in a folder somewhere in case you have to put it back.

Don't worry, that's just Microsoft paranoia. You have unknowingly added the FSSound.dll, which is good because it's needed by many aircraft but because it's not default fs9 outfit, there's no entry in the fs9.cfg file.

If you want to get rid of the annoying prompt, add this to the fs9.cfg file:

[OLDMODULES]
FSSound.dll=1


The path to the fs9.cfg is: Username / Application Data / Microsoft / FS9.

Let us know how you're getting on Idea

Ya'll are the GREATEST! Thanks to you two, I'm now painting AND building Panels. What a rush! I'll let you all know how this works out.

By the by.......I have zero'ed in on the A319-100, 747-400 Freight, and 777-200 as my prefered projects. More later>


REMEMBER: Man was not meant to fly; nor did he invent flying.......so far we as humans have not done half bad!
