    When I was running Windows 7 7000 I was able to install and use MS Flightsim X OK, now running Windows 7 7100 I have been having trouble installing FSX. When it got to the end of the installation for the first time a error message came up saying:

    Failed to load Error #0x80040707
    Description: DLLfunction call crashed:
    Setup will now terminate.

    Looking in the instalation dir many of the exe files were missing. Well I thought I would give it another go.
    This time it got a but further before I got the following message:

    Failed to load DLL 0x80040702
    Setup will now terminated.

    When I went into the directory I found it had installed the exe files this time, so I gave it a go and indeed it does work.
    But I still wonder if something might be missing and why did the installation terminate giving me the impression that it had indeed failed.
    Like I said before the simulator worked very well with Win7 7000.
    I wonder if others have had the same trouble installing FSX with Windows 7 RC 7100?

    my setup is:
    Motherboard - Gigabyte EP35-DS3R
    Intel Core2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHz
    Graphic card - Asus EN9800GTX+
    Ram - 4gig
    x64 based computer


    Since writing the above I have looked in the Windows Control panel\ Programs& Features and found there is no mention of FSX being installed. FS2004 is there OK but not FSX. Very odd.
