Installation problem (Really odd)

Vlax Guest

I just got the game, Im running a vista computer which is compatible with the game. The odd thing that happens when I go to install it is it goes through the few loading bars in the InstallShield, and then it simply doesn't come up. It just doesnt show, I can literally see a program called 'Microsft Flight Simulator X' minimized, but no matter how many times I click it, it wont show itself! I reckon the solution must be really simple, but I just can't find it.

I have that problem when I close the game down. It stays minimized and does nothing for 10 minutes.

The way to get it up is to go alt+f4 and it should come up and say do you wish to close the game out and say no Then that should take you to the game. If that does not work go to ctrl+alt+delete and click go to task manager. Then click FSX and click switch to And that should bring the game up. That is how it works for me. Hope that helps.

Oh and I think it is only for Vista because when I go to try the game on my laptop the installation runs properly, its just that I dont want to risk melting my crappy laptop by installing it.

Yeah you typed that when I tiped my response. If you have a weak laptop don't install it on there becasue there is a limited numder of times you can download it so put it on your best computer.
