Hope this helps.

By the way, thats an old video card a newer stronger one will give you better FPS.
Thats if your power supply is strong enough to handle it.

I installed msxml by doubleclicking it but FSX still will not install.

Any more ideas?

Did you try the second message from the bottom.
Dropping in the disk and doing it manually.

Are you loading it to your "C" drive, if not that could be the problem.

Drop in disk #1 and don't let it autorun (hold down left shift key).
Open the DVD and double click the install icons.
There may be more than one, try them all.

I wonder if the dual boot is using the same registry and since it's working on XP it won't let you load it twice.

Regarding the
1- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928080

I did it all 2-3 times again & I get:

Cleaning up Token Store at: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SLDL\\SoftwareLicensig
Failed to delete the token store.
Error --HRESULT 80004005

I gues is useless trying to install FX again with this result.

Any more ideas?

Thanx

Clean it out this way, do not miss a thing.
It works for FSX also.
Then try to reinstall it.

After this all I can think of is reinstalling Windows.

Shame, Shame, Shame... I managed to install FSX.

In all those failed attempts I made I kept typing in the black screen " run as administrator" & was never accepted & thought it was because as I was shown as Adminr in User Accounts it knew I was.

Lo & behold, just after my previous post, I clicked on Start to do something & noticed a black icon, I clicked it & it opened the box as Adminr.

In the attached, notice the bottom heading says Admnr. but the top one just C:\ win....

Where the blazes did the Adminr come from out of the blue I will never know. I never put it in Start menu.

SO you were all right after all & must have thought what an idiot have we here. I do not blame you. ....Cheers

I never knew you were typing into a DOS type (command-prompt) box, but all turned out well now you can enjoy the Sim.
Good luck!
