Microsoft Flight Simulator 98

Microsoft Flight Simulator 98


Installation is straight forward as you would expect from the same company that publishes the operating system! (Windows).

Install screen 1

When you get to the Install location screen the default location is : C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator

HINT : Use the default location. Later on you will probably install enhancements to the software like new planes and scenery and things will fly much more smoothly if the default location is used.

During install you have the option to install the following scenery files to the hard drive or load them 'on the fly' from the CD as needed. It's hard to appreciate the importance of the decision in these days of 40 GIG Hard Drives !
