Phil,

Great news! Glad you're able to piece it back together.

Win10 killed FSPax for FS9 for me. FSPax for FSX works, but I don't use FSX that much (performance issues). By dialing back the bells and whistles of FSX, other capabilities like TongassX, etc start to degrade - so it's a balance.

I have a pretty good laptop (Dell Inspiron 17). FS9 works great, and even FS8 works. I use FS9 to fly for WestWind.
Warmest regards,
Martin Douglas

Oooh Rah Phil!

By the way, I stumbled across a FSPassenger note today regarding FS9 and Win10. You can make FSPax work by adjusting the Compatibility Mode adjustments. Change it to Win7, or Vista - it will work.

BUT, in doing so, the FS9 Logbook display when shutting down (which I use to capture the Day, Night, and most importantly Inst Hours), stops working. Set it to WinXP, FSPax does not work, but the FS9 Logbook does work. Go figure.

So again, like FSX usage on my laptop - it's balanced trade-off.

Glad you're airborne again.
Warmest regards,
Martin Douglas
