Having problems with your Microsoft Flight Simulator X for Windows ?

System ''Lock up" when running FSX Pro

\015 My operating system is Windows XP. The problem I am having is: having loaded flight simulator and it seems to be working fine, until I need to ''minimise'' & ''maximise'' the window. Normally I carry out this function by selecting,' views' & 'minimise' or 'alt + 'enter'. At this point the window locks up, forcing me to go to: ctrl + alt+delete.\015\012\015\012I have tried everything!! Can you please help?\015\012\015\012Robert\015

Answers :

You can try alt + tab. or do alt + ctrl + del win the game DOES run fine. windows task manager will pop up and it will push flight simulator in the taskbar.
if it still crash, check your patch on the game. maybe it has a "minimise-lock". which means: it cant minimise cause the producer doesnt want too (but i cant see why he care ^^)

hope i helped you

PS. just curious: why do you want to minimise?
