Everytime I choose Flight Lessons from the main menu FS2004 crashes to the desktop. I have the same problem when I go to select flight and choose any of the canned flights. I have removed FS and all of the FS related files and registry entries that I can find and completely reinstalled but the problem remains. Has anyone else ever seen this problem?
What are your system specs?
If it's not this then you are misssing codecs.
It's some type of problem with the HTML files for the flights and my drivers. I downgraded the drivers (ATI 9600 AIW Pro, now running 4/2004 drivers) and the problem with the flight lessons went away. To resolve the problem with the canned flight (e.g. arial chauffeur) I renamed the htm file that goes with the flight. Now the flight launches, I just dont get a briefing. Really strange.
