First I'd try to uninstall the game, Remove any remaining folder's that relate to Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

Reboot computer, Reinstall the game.
Check the Games Explorer.
If not there then concider following my tutorial.
and I thought I'd lost it..

Here we go, my tutorial Right click to download

Please note, you will need Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat Pro installed in order to view, or any 3rd party .pdf viewer will do the trick also.

Edit--
You might want to read through this tutorial aswell.
Adding Games To Games Explorer Folder
Thats really odd, both links work for me.

Anyway I'm really glad that you have found a solution to your problem.

You are more than welcome to look around these forums.
I really hope that you enjoy your stay here at Seven Forums

I have Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
I want to install this software "Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition (x86 and x64 WoW) - DVD". When the Setup start, the installation folder is "Program Files (x86)".
Is this OK? It wouldn't be installed in "Program Files" ... what is x64 WoW!? Do I need to change the folder to "Program Files" or to leave default "Program Files (x86)"

Please...

It really doesn't matter. You can install wherever you want. THe x88 folder just helps you keep track of your programs a little better. The 64-bit programs go in Program Files, and the 32-bit programs go in Program Files x86.

Like I said, though, you can change locations to wherever you want.

every thing from Favorites to videos is in C can i move then to the other partition D for good, so that C can be only for computer, because when i try to move them it always makes a copy only, and i thought that i could separate them and have any thing that is downloaded to them go to D automatically

If you want to move the files, right-click on them and select Cut. Then go to your target drive and select Paste.

The shortcut for that is Ctrl+X, Ctrl+V.

You would have to set that in your browser. Go into your browser settings and look around, it should be pretty easy to find.

Hello Dinks, welcome to Seven Forums!



If you have the 32-bit Windows 7 you will only have one Program Files file, you only have 2 with the 64-bit versions.
