I had FS2004 for many many years and had it tuned to perfection with an outstanding variety of outstanding aircraft and weather addons.
I've recently switched to X-PLANE 12 because I can no longer get access to my FS9 simulator.
My question: What do I need to do to get FS2004 operating again?
Thank you, and I am a member of FLY AWAY PRO.
It's great to hear that you've been enjoying flight simulation for many years, particularly FS2004 (Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight). It's indeed a classic and still holds a special place in the hearts of flight sim enthusiasts.
To get FS2004 up and running again after switching to a new hard drive, you'll need to follow a few steps:
Once you've completed these steps, you should be able to enjoy FS2004 again. Keep in mind that compatibility with modern systems may be limited, but most users can still run FS2004 without major issues.
Regarding Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (MSFS), while the process to install and manage addons is different, you can always consider giving it a try. MSFS offers stunning visuals, realistic weather simulation, and an active community of addon developers. However, keep in mind that your FS2004 addons won't be compatible with MSFS.
I hope this helps you get FS2004 up and running again! If you need further assistance, feel free to ask.
