FS2004 cannot find the default fltsim

Archived from groups: alt.games.microsoft.flight-sim (More info?)

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

    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.
