  1. Try This: Find the Flight Simulator X shortcut and right click it. Choose Properties and go to Compatibility tab. Check Run this program in compatibility mode for and choose Windows 8 from the menu. Click Apply and OK to save the changes and try running the game again. I selected Windows XP .... I don't think it matters which one select.
  2. I don't know if it's my computer but three quarter of the screen is black (top quarter and bottom half)
  3. Thank you very much for your link. I have a Simkits account but didn't think of checking it for the free download. Now I will see if I can find the download link for FSX. Stay safe and well !
  4. Hi Don where did you download it from? I can't get it to download from their site.
  5. You don't need the CD to run FSX but you do need to activate it.
  6. Terrific! Where on earth did you find that airplane?
  7. Thanks Nick for pointing me to Mitchell's post. I am now able to use my Orbx again.
  8. Hi Mitchell I installed the prerequisite software from your attached Nick Cooper link and now every thing is working o.k. Thank you for your help and for sending me Nick's link.
  9. Thanks Nick for the explanation. I have Windows 7 SP1 so I guess I meet the minimum requirements but I still get the attached error message. Did the central.log I attached show anything to explain the error message? Is there anything else that I could check to see if I can get Orbx Central Worker to launch?
  10. Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 Simulator: Microsoft FSX Screenshot: Error Message Issue: Orebx Central Worker Failed to Launch. The error message says the minimum required operating system is "Windows 7 SP1+". What does the + signify ? My Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1 does not have the +. Is that my problem? central.log
  11. The problem must be my computer and not ORBX. The computer takes forever to start and when it does finally start it displays all kinds of errors. So I will just reinstall windows and start all over again. Thanks any way Nick for all the assistance. Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year
  12. Administrator: I not been able to open my Installation errors post on the machine on which my ORBX Central prorgam is installed. However I did manage to get my topic working on this machine. So I can give you the information you request, I have attached central.log and the error.jpg. Operating system: 64-bit Windows 7 Professional Simulator: FSX Screenshot: Attached Issue: Can not install my 3 new purchases and any of my updates. All get the error message attached. I hope that you will excuse my having to go this route but I didn't see any other way. central.log
