I plan to continue using FS2004 as log as it will run on windows 10
But sadly the day will come that it will not run anymore that is one day I am not looking forward to

After spending just half a dozen minutes at the website am greatly impressed with what is being seen, natural Earth as is is a strong interest of mine. ... Greatly appreciated, your making me aware of this.

Unless you know exactly what a particular update is for i strongly suggest you install it. ... The biggest problem is the fact that both FS9 and FSX are 32 bit programs and we are running them on a 64 bit windows platform.
Every single 32 bit program will install on your C drive inside the Program Files (86) folder by default which is a protected folder by Windows 10
Unless your operating system is installed on a different drive like B. And yes I know you can turn down the User control to prevent this but I still think that will create a problem down the line sooner or later as I reasonably certain Microsoft had a good reason to do this.
