Well hi old felas, I just installed vista and its sp1. I installed fs9, but it seems not to work. I click on the fs9 icon it loads splash screen but then says "MS 2004 has stopped working, looking for solutions" the only solution SM gives me is the 9.1 update, even with te update it doesnt work. Please help, any suggestions?

I tried, I think I just need to install it differently, what I did is, I puted all the files from all the disks in a folder, so it wont ask for a disk and installed it, I shouldv install it from a disk. I will any of the options above, thanks guys 🙂

If you're using UAC (user account control) make sure that FS is set to run as administrator.

I'm out of town and don't have a Vista computer in front of me right now, but I seem to recall that this option is available by right-clicking the shortcut or Start Menu item you use to launch it, then selecting "Properties". It's something that might help even if your normal account has admin rights.
