Fly Away Simulation

Rookie/novice needs help applying downloads to my flt sim

I'm truly a novice, and by no means puter saavy. I've had my ms flt sim 2004, forever. It's a great simulator, and I've literally spent hundreds of hours playing it. But, it wasn't until recently, I discovered I could download add-ons to it. I recently became a paid member of fly away.

My question is basic: download 101? My actual question: I downloaded a new acft (C130) to msfs2004 and figured when it downloaded, it would download directly to the sim itself. In other words, I thought when I downloaded the C130, it would go straight to the sim program. So, of course I thought I would boot up my game and the new acft would be there! Obviously, it wasn't, that's why I'm here.

If there's somebody live out here, can you please tell me, or explain to me how to download something (i.e., C130) and apply it to my flt sim?

Thanks in advance!

I'm taking it that you downloaded a C-130 and didn't buy the CaptSim C-130.

This is a pictorial guide how to load it into your sim.

You should use only 2004 (possibly 2002) aircraft not FSX.

This may be a silly question, but, is FS9 and Flt Sim 2004 the same thing?

Is there an IM, or something like that in here we can use to talk back and forth, instead of this? That is, if you've got a couple minutes for an old guy trying to update his flt sim.

I took a quick peak at the download instructions you sent me, and I have to admit, it looks real complicated! It may even be out of my league.

Thank you for your time, but, it's time for this old man to hit the rack. I appreciate your download instructions, I'll give it a go tomorrow. I don't know how often you get on here, but I'll try to contact to at a later date to let you know if I was able to download my C130.

Again, Thank You!

Yes, FS9 and 2004 are the same.
If you follow the instructions step by step instead of looking at the full lot it will be easier.
If you do it once you'll be able to do it easily every time.
No I don't have IM, don't care for that.

Yes we all are getting there Sleep

Let us know how you do.

This is pay but easy to install.
