When I start FS2004 I get the following message :FS2004 cannot find the
default fltsim.flt file.

I tried the Microsoft article 319764 and a bunch of other stuffs, but
still I am having the same problem.

It was working fine since 4 months, but suddenly I am getting this
error.

Help

Thanks

Check and see if the directory was re-named. That happened to me when I
installed some addon or another and it took quite a bit of registry editing
to fix it.

Mine wound up renamed to "FS9 Directory"

I found my at:

Why don't you create a text file in that folder and cut and paste the text
below. Save it as fltsim.flt

Hi all

Thanks you very much for your help Dallas and Jay Williams

I tried but it didn't work.

I resolved it this way:

I uninstalled FS2004 program from add-remove(deleted Microsoft Games
folder in C:\Program Files)

I created a new Windows user and I reinstalled FS2004 under the new
user

I tested it and it worked fine with the new user

I tested under the old Windows user, same error.

I am now using FS2004 under the new user.
