I removed all the non supplied FS9 aircraft to another folder and with the no cd file in place the programme loaded - almost normally. I then re-loaded the aircraft with no problem. However, I am unable to trace the FS9.cfg file using all the links provided so far on various web sites. When the programme loads I have the aircraft panel but although all the sounds are there the gauges do not move and the aircraft does not move. Likewise the S key does not change the viewing mode BUT the sound changes to suit the mode e.g. from side view etc. Also even with numlock in place I get no changes.
One noticeable thing is that when I press the S key the panel stays where it is but the aircraft top is just visible over the top of the panel. I feel I need to check the video card but how I do that I do not know. I am making progress but after about 27 hours at it I should hope so.
Can anybody show me how to find the FS9.cfg file with Windows 10? Or whatever. Am away for about 15 days so will pick up where I left off after my return.
Look here C:\Users\YOUR NAME\App Data\Roaming\Microsoft\FS9.
It's a hidden file on W10 like in XP.
Be sure you are searching using the "show hidden files" option.
