I have been following the experiences of Bones, Gerry, Frank T, Frank F, etc with FSX with great interest ... but also with increasing cynicism. It is only recently that I finally decided to install FS9, having been perfectly happy with FS2K2 and its performance on my PC - and, apart from allowing the use of some more up-to-the-minute coding tools for developers, I have seen little to commend the switch to FS9. Indeed only today I have returned to FS2K2 in preference to FS9 for my first bit of flight simming for about three months - and very enjoyable too.

I reckon Bones could well be right when he compares FS9 -> FSX to CFS2 -> CFS3: a triumph for the accountants (apologies to Frank T) and marketing hype over real technical progress. If there is no progress from flat earth/runways (X-Plane has had sloping runways for over a year), and flight dynamics of the default aircraft are getting worse instead of better, then I will be leaving FSX off my Christmas list.

Another example of M$ bloatware, or the emperor's new clothes IMHO ...

Back to my dark corner.

I'll probably leave the Demo on for a couple of days, then run the uninstall prog, to get rid of it. What you say about possible sharing sounds logical. Since my FS9 is on a different drive to the Demo, with VFR GM on yet another drive, that might be exascerbating the problem. If I run the uninstal, then Regvac, that might get rid of the pauses...or is the plural "paws" ?
