    Hi,

    I am trying to use my IF22-v5 flight simulator (Win95/.98) on Windows XP Home Edition. It worked well for a few hours. However when I was trying to land my aircraft using ILS etc it suddely crashed. The program has not worked since then.

    What actually happens is that the program gets attached as a Process when you see it in the Task Manager, but does not appear in the Applications list. What I feel is that the program is unable to take control of the computer as a foreground task.

    I tried reloading both my operating system (XP) and the software again but no luck. Could someone kindly suggets a solution??

    Thanks.

    You might try compaditility modes right click on the exe (or shortcut) and press properties then compatibility and choose 98/95 and press apply

    I tried that - no effect.

    I have tried running the program in "run as" (right click) Sometimes it does work but does not save any settings I make.

    Is there a graphics adapter problem.
