Sorry, it's been a long day, my brain had gone to sleep.

Eh? I'm talking about FSX Frank - not FS9.

Does that mean having to register, every time it is reinstalled and a limit?

Does that mean the nocd patch or the official 9.1 patch.

second is that you don't need a CD in the drive to use FSX as it is
activated online like Win XP. It also will not run on any Windows
version except Vista and XP2 - apparently not on an unpatched version
of XP.

Back on line and I'd answered the first question in the reply to Frank; having just come to your own, after.

System on the new one is:
Mobo            ASUS P5B
Processor       INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6700 (2 X 2.67GHZ) 1066MHZ FSB/4MB Cache
Graphics Card   256Mb Geforce 7600GT PCI-Express + DVI + TV Out
Memory          2048 Mb CORSAIR DDR2-667 PCS300
Hard Drive      SATA II 250Gb @ 7200rpm, 8Mb Cache
Hard Drive 2    SATA 11  80Gb @ 7200 rpm, just transferred from my old

Initial economies were on memory and the graphics card. If FSX
dictates, and cash available, I'll increase to 4096 Mb. On Shep's
advice I went for the 7600GT, initially. The top end card was about
£300 extra! He thinks prices will plummet when DirectX X comes out and
new cards have to be produced to use it.

Only significant hitch, so far, apart from not being able to get on
line with anything but this laptop, is second graphics card. The new
machine won't recognise either of my old PCI cards. Getting decent
information is extremely difficult but it looks as though a
PCI-Express card will only run with others of that conformation.
Whilst doing a trawl I came across news of Matrox having launced the
550. This is PCI-E x 1, so I have three of those slots available, as
well as three PCI. The icing on the cake is that the 550 looks to be a
genuine dual head, like my much missed Matrox 400 Dual Head AGP; stil
languishing in a drawer.

Frank, I've had a quick look at the first, CPU related, suggestion. In untouched state, with both processors ticked, CPU Useage is 54%, one processor burbling just below max and the other burbling along just above the baseline. FPS is about 57, at Ronaldsway.

With only one processor ticked, CPU Useage is down to 51%. One
processor is a straight line at max, the other barely discernible
above baseline and fps probably about 2 to 3 lower than in the first

The Default was both running with FS9, which was producing marginally beter framerates.

Brighter brains than mine my deduce something from this.

Can't look at the effect of FSUIPC on blurries, since my version
seems to have become unregistered, at some stage.
