I have a weakness for train and flight sims.
My computer consists of an ASUS M4N68T-M-V2 (AM3)mobo, AMD Athlon II X2 250 CPU, 4 Gb RAM, GeForce 9500 GT video card and an ASUS Xonar D1 sound card running 64 bit Win 7, fully patched.
Since I corrupted my boot sector about 6 months ago and had to re-install the operating system I have not been able to get the MS Train Simulator to run even though it was running on the system before this. I have been all over the UK TrainSim forums and had some lengthy discussions there, as well as following the advice I was given - no go ! I have got it running by means of a VM - Vmware's virtual player and XP but this seems an overly complicated way of doing things, especially as it ran inside Win 7 before.
Anybody on Bleeping Computer got any computing ideas as to why this software, old though it is, won't run on Win 7 any more ? Interestingly, I have a copy of the MS Combat Flight Simulator 1 working on this system, and I think that even pre-dates the MS Train Sim. The only problem I have with that is that from time to time it refuses to believe I have a joystick connected
Grateful for any suggestions,
