Grateful for any assistance chaps(and chapesses)
I have successfuly installed FS2004(FS9) onto my new OS Win7 64bit. (previously used Win XP).
I find that I am unable to install my various add-ons (trying to load FScene currently), this is because Win7 64 version of InstallShield won't work. It appears that the Win7 64bit version will not accept the .exe script used on standard FS2004/FS9 add-ons. Is there a fix that I can use? If I can't find one, I'll have to store all my FS2004/FS9 material and just use FSX, or go back to using XP with all its RAM restrictions. Help please!!!!Confused

I think you are getting confused the ram restrictions are in the 32bit flight sims and not the OS, running 32bit flight simulator on a 64bit OS will have a 4gb limit hence the VAS and OOM`s, that`s why they have gone to 64bit flight simulators now it is the future of flight sims.
