I have Boot Camp and iMac 24" running Flight Simulator 2004 on Windows XP.
The game freezes any where between 10 minutes and several hours.

I have reinstalled the FS 2004 from a different set of discs.

Does any one have the same problem?

Any help appreciated.

Make sure you have the latest video drivers for your video card installed. Go to the video maker's web site and download\install the latest Win XP drivers. Also make sure you have the latest version of DirectX installed for XP.

You might also want to run the DirectX diagnostics from Windows to make sure everything is working OK.

Start -> Run -> type in "dxdiag.exe" without the quotes and follow directions.

Regards.
