Deluxe has more than standard and Gold includes the Acceleration pack.
You should be able to run it on W7 64bit since I am.

Drop in disk one and choose repair and see if that helps.

Has it ever worked on W7 for you.

Yes, I'm using it (Deluxe) and have been since it first came out.
I added the Acceleration Pack when it came out, it not only contains more scenery and aircraft but has SP1 and SP2 built in.
That way it works it's way into the Sim without any problems.

In fact if you search this forum way back you'll find that I bought it a week before it's general release (Best Buy), this is the 3rd computer I've had it on.
XP 32bit, Vista 64bit now W7 64bit.
