when I tried to install fsx I got this error message that fsx requires the sp2. the thing is the computer is just for fs and has never been on the web and was wondering if anyone knows of a way to bypass this annoying occurance...thanks

It's unsafe to run windows no less than having SP2. it doesn't take that long to download SP2 if you have highspeed connection.

I've got SP1, do I need to install SP2 now? Does it really help if I'm not using third party downloads or fyling with others? It seems this was what was addressed in SP2 ???

I believe the 1st poster is talking to the fact that FSX requires XP SP2.

FSX-SP2 has some good things in it, read about it here:

As long as you are not wedded to FS9 content, yes.

I dont know about that. When I got fsx all i had was a 512 mb and a 256 mb card of random access memory (ram). It worked fine and downloaded fine, but it took almost 24 hours to install. I got a graphics card with a gb of ram built in and a 1 gb stick of extra ram for my computer and it runs adequately on medium/high settings. Just make sure that if you buy extra ram that your computer can handle all of the ram you put into it. Mine Could hold 2 gb of ram and i have 1,512 mb total plus a graphics card with an extra gig. Graphics cards wont overload your computers ram limit. The service addon pack works good also. Try that. Hope this helps! Wink
