I wonder if there's any related error in the eventlog (presuming he's on XP or 2000)?

Just to add to this for those who didn't tune in last night.

Fred started up at Liverpool and then at Valley but never got too far with
his flights as FS9 would just vanish - dumping him back to desktop. In each
case I don't think any warnings came up - FS simply ended.

As the rest of his system (including Voice) kept running it suggests the
problem isn't that of system overload otherwise everything would have gone
down. So, can anyone dig into the dim recesses of their memory and recall if
they have had a similar experience with FS and what the solution may have

As Fred started at Liverpool and then relocated to Valley my own thought is
that it isn't a scenery related issue. In fact Fred managed to get airborne
on his last try and got halfway across Cardigan Bay before the sim
disappeared so rogue scenery isn't the issue. I suspect Frank is right in
that some sort of limit is being reached but it is very unusual to have FS
expire without any warning. A hot CPU would shut the whole system down but
what about an overloaded video card?

Any ideas would be welcome.

Sorry you did not get down to me at Haverfordwest.
Pondering your problems, it seems that it may be software related. You can
run FS, but for a limited time, check that your antivirus, is
not set to run an automatic system scan.
Also disconnect from the internet, and disable AV and Firewall and run
FS for at least an hour, that will tell you if the problem lies there. FS
wants the full 100%  of your CPU, and if anything else starts up and
wants it, something has to give.
Also, your system  specs, AMD3000 is good, you will need  256-512  of
memory, and a  graphics card, the best you can afford will help. FS will
use all of that.
Even on my AMD 3200 with an X1650 Pro video and 1 gig of ram, I still
have'nt got FS9 running with all the sliders to the right.
But that will not solve your FS crash, something is starting up in the
background, or you are running out of resource.
Without being there, it is a case of hunting it down by shutting down
any unnecessary service until you find the culprit.
But please do not be discouraged, there is a wealth of talent here on
this list, and we are only to pleased to help, just shout help! We can also
do an online chat using the PC Voice client. Frank F
