Hey ya'll. I just picked fs2k4 up again and started playing it after setting it down for a long time (lots of stuff to do). Anyway... I'm having some really weird problems. I think they must have something to do with the Explorer underpinnings of fs2k4. Like when I open up the kneeboard and try to scroll on something in it, using either the arrow buttons or the scroll bar, it crashes (black screen of death) and after a while it asks if i would like to restart fs2k4. Also, sometimes when i'm working in the menus while flying, the save menu for example, it will just hang, forcing me to do the end program on it.
What's the problem here? I already tried rolling back my 9800pro's drivers back to the 5.3 drivers but that didn't help.
Radeon 9800Pro 128MB

Oh and I just did a clean install of fs too, and that didn't do anything.
Lets hope this post helps you also.
thanks so much! That did it! 😀
👍 Glad to hear it. It's a strange way to fix it but it works.
Cheers RadarMan! Some more info for you.
ViewManager is part of a program called ViewPoint Manager which you should find in add/remove.
ViewPoint Manager is usually downloaded with programs such as i-Tunes and Acrobat. It is used to update these programs and is a 'genuine' piece of software although most find it a pain.
Thanks BashDaBish the kneeboard crash happens more often then we like.
There are a few other "programs" that interfere with FS9, this way we build up our own data base of fixes.
