Any clues yet on nvidia problems resulting in false starts, even in default render mode? I managed to run this sim for 15 minutes in default rendering mode and it ROCKED! Now I am re-downloading the local content so I can at least fly that way until this problem is worked out. Excellent job on this new simulator entry, Ikarus! Proud of you and thankful for your work!

I was told by aerofly support that I needed a better video card to run this sim .. although I ran it pretty well last night, at least once. I -had- a GT440 (getting about 25fps -in a window-), which is only one step below the recommended card (above minimum requirements as listed). After getting upset and mouthing off (which I regret) I decided to upgrade my card against my better judgement. Now I own a HD 7770.

I use Windoze7 BTW ....

So I install the new card, and try again to run aeroflyFS ... to see the same error message "aeroflyFS executable failed to start". Now I'm getting a bit upset again. I know for a fact that this new card exceeds the recommended by about 1000 miles, so what's the deal?

Well here's the deal. If this error is happening to you in Windoze7, you will have to set the aerofly-fs.exe file in your steamprog/steamapps/common/aerofly FS folder to run in Windoze XP (service pack 3) compatibility mode. I wish I had tried that last night, before purchasing a new video card i did not actually need.

IPACS (Ikarus), you have a fantastic sim here and I am proud to be flying it. To Mike in Support ... sorry for blowing a fuse earlier man ... that's not usually like me. However, as customer support for a Steam offering you really need to familiarize yourself with things like this to save your customers hard-earned money, which could be spent instead on your next addon.

Had the same problem, I had to run aerofly-fs.exe file,which is in your steamprog/steamapps/common/aerofly FS folder, to run in Windows Server 2003 (service pack 1) compatibility mode, then create a shortcut to aerofly-fs.exe to start the game, do not use the steam play icon to start the game.

So this is a 2012 release not supporting Win 7, think I'll pass to save my frustration

Odd ... after running a weekly AV scan, plus a defrag run using Tune Up Utilities ... my aerofly-fs.eve, set to Windows 7 service pack 3 compatibility mode .... stopped working (same failed to start error). So I proceeded to try most of the other compatibility options one by one until "Windows Vista" worked. Why this behavior is occurring is unknown ... but as long as it still works, I'm HAPPY!
