Please let me know how it goes, or if you get stuck.

All the best.

Hi Zswobbie1 CaptJim here again. I said that I would contact you if I had any thing positive to report. I was able to correct the black screen on my FS2002. All I had to do is when the black screen came up (where the aircraft should have been), I just hit the Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys and up pops the Manager button and WALA all is fine with the world. :dance: My FS2004 is still a problem. It will download completely and when it indicates "start now" it all disappears. I am at a loss with that one. :violin: I won't even get into FS10 at this point. :cry: :cry:

For installing into Windows 10,..
https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthre ... our-NEW-PC
Installing FS2004 into Windows 10 & Copying FS2004 from your OLD PC to your NEW PC
To INSTALL FS2004 to your new Windows 10 PC

1. Install into C:\ NOT into it's default C:\Program Files
2. Install the 9.1 updatel
3. Install the 9.1 nocd patch
4. Right-click the FS9.exe, select Properties
5. Select Compatibility mode, & select XP
6. At bottom, then select 'Run as Administrator'
7. Double click the desktop icon


To COPY & PASTE from your OLD PC to your NEW Windows 10 PC

From your OLD PC:
1. Copy the whole FS2004 folder to a portable drive
2. Open the Documents Folder & copy the 'Flight Simulator Files' folder to a portable drive
3. Find the FS2004.cfg file & copy it to your portable drive
This is normally found in C:\Users\xxx(your user)\appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\FS9
An easy way to find this FS2004.cfg is to download EVERYTHING from www.voidtools.com
(This is a very fast desktop search engine that will find the file as you type)

Once all that is done:
1. Plug the portable drive into your NEW PC
2. Open the C:\ folder & copy & paste the copied FS2004 folder therein
3. Right-click the FS2004.exe & 'Send to Desktop (create shortcut) You now will have a Desktop FS2004 icon
4. Copy & paste the 'Flight Simulator Files' folder into your 'Documents' folder
5. Right-click the FS9.exe, select Properties
6. Select Compatibility mode, & select XP
7. At bottom, then select 'Run as Administrator'
8. Double click the desktop icon
THEN
9. Copy & Paste the FS2004.cfg file into C:\Users\xxx(your user)\appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\FS9
10. Double click the desktop icon

NOTE: I'm interchanging FS9 with FS2004. Be consistent with your install!

If you follow the instructions it will run like a champ the main thing here is DO NOT INSTALL in the default location of C:Program Files (86) if you have a second or third drive it would be better there I have FSX installed on my B drive and FS2004 installed on my D drive
