Because if you look at any FLT file in Notepad you will see that the
situation saves absolutely everything that you set up whilst in the saved
flight. The FLT file is a smaller fs9.cfg file.

Now you have rebuilt your system it might be that your old FLT files aren't
suitable for your setup. Even the default FLT file may be wrong - and the
reason why FS9 doesn't display correctly. If it is still in Task Manager but
not on screen I strongly suggest the situation files are now duff and
unsuitable for you current system. You'll have to set things up again and
create a new default.FLT file.

At the moment I'm just running with three screens, but treated as one 3840 x
1024. The cursor won't go outside these. The other two can't be in play
because I haven't yey installed there graphics cards. I've had it before,
with another prog, but can't rmember how I solved it.

Err, I think I've managed a workaround. With the three screens working in
TripleHead mode, if I boot up via one of the saved situations, from its
folder, then FS9 appears, on the left screen. If I reboot from the normal
FS9 ikon, still no sign. If I boot up from the saved situation, then it
appears, where I left if, in the centre screen.

Can't think of any reason why there should be that difference.
