Are you sure it's version 3.5? If so, that's almost certainly not going to work with Windows 10, and may not even work with 8 or 7 without special configuration, as 3.5 goes back to 2007 and is about 11 years old. Have you considered upgrading to the newest version?

Tech Support Specialist: technicalcat, Consultant replied 20 days ago

OK. I have checked into this for you, and as I said before, this is very old "vintage" software. Even back in 2010, most reports showed the software wouldn't run on many Windows 7 computers as it's a flight simulator. This also means emulators are mostly out.

If you really want to run the old version, for this one you'll need to go very retro. You'll need an XP computer with a good graphics card (for that time). Getting all that together will likely cost more in time and effort than just purchasing the new version of the software which will run on Windows 10 and make use of your hardware. Looks like cost on that is about 100-150.

Please let me know if this answers your question and you are satisfied, or if you need further assistance or information from me. Thank You.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
