Beta Testers & MS Flight Simulator 2004 (NOT running)on XP Pro SP2Locked
Before I launch into my sorrowful story is anyone interested in Beta Testing a couple of ?possible? shareware programs? Sorry, nothing to do with gaming, one is just an application that checks ?on-the-fly? the validity of indices? in a DB IV style database. It was done expressly for the FoxPro 2.6a and earlier Foxes.
If there is enough interest I?ll move it to examine VFP and Access style databases.
Everyone, this possibly my last resort…
I’m a Techie just like most all of you? but I?ve got a problem maybe one of you might help me solve.
How?s this for MS, I?ve got an 1 ? year old HP Pavilion sporting dual-CPU?s @ 3.2 GHz, 1gig ram, NVIDIA card, 2 HD?s with a total of about 500 gig, running XP Pro SP 2 (a MS product), and trying to run a game by MS called MS Flight Simulator. Not the fanciest but more than twice the recommended options called for.
I?ve tried every solution that MS had to offer, such as checking for newer drivers, etc.
The setup went without flaw, but to my amazement when I tried to actually run the thing the splash screen comes up, AND then the program just quits. No messages, no lockups, no nothing? I?ve checked the applications and process in the Task Manager and poof, not there anymore.
