Hello,

 

I am getting back into flying and VATSIM.  Downloaded Swift 9.5.151 32bit and installed.

 

Duringthe installation I get this message:

Problem running post-install setup.  Installation may not be complete correctly

 Unknown error while running C:\Program Files\swift-0.9.5-32bit/bin/swiftlauncher -i

--bootstrapurl http://data store.swift-project.org/shared/ &

 

I click OK and it finishes the install, I get a setup wizard stating Swift has completed setup on my system, I clock okay again and that's it.

 

But if I go to programs and try to run any of the Swift software I get an error box stating ... is not a valid Win32 application.

 

Is there something I am missing?

I'm continuing my search online in the meantime.

Someone should know definitively, but I think there are people running it on XP.

 

Too bad we couldn't use FSInn still.  Everything always has to be upgraded even when things work fine.

 

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, I obviously did see that page, thank you.  However I also noticed Windows 7 doesn't even meet the requirements.

 

I'm going to see if I can track down an earlier version that might install.  If not, I suppose I'll have to scrap everything, purchase a brand-new system, OS, and the new flight simulator software; lots of time and money...

Apparently FS9/XP can be made to work. Not supported, which was Claude's point, but doable. Maybe a PM to Philip Cohen to see what versions he had success with?

Yes, that's the one I mentioned from Philip Cohen.
