Hi, and thank you for asking your question.

We will need to test around with some compatibility settings for the MS Flight Simulator program in order to get it to work with Windows 8.

May I set up a quick, secure remote session (for a minimal fee) to assist you with the issue now?

Please reply back using the Reply box below. Thank you.

Please do this now:

RIGHT-CLICK on the Flight Simulator icon on your desktop, and select Properties.

In the Properties window, click on the "Compatibility" tab at the top.

Next, select (tick) the following options:

Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)

Run this program as administrator

Click Apply > OK. Does this make any difference to your issue with running the program?

Please reply back to me below. Thanks.
