    G'Day all,

    Vista SP2, 4GB and two HDDs:- C:\ and D:\
    C:\ has Windows and all programs (except ...)
    D:\ has (HAD) all data plus 3 games in D:\Program Files\...

    Lost D:\, replaced and recovered all data from Backup :)
    Re-installed the 3 games TO C:\ DRIVE THIS TIME

    No game required a Product Key - ergo lots of stuff in the Registry.
    Two Games run ok.
    FSX runs, but complains of missing scenery files
    _______________(more registry stuff? - they may be from Acceleration pack)

    When I attempt to install Acceleration Pack:
    I see
    __Windows Installer
    ___Preparing to install + vbCancel
    appear on screen and fade in 1 second or so :(

    I have run Registry Mechanic (2800 errors on first run), removed and
    re-installed FSX several times (including once with Windows Installer Clean
    UP) - to no avail!

    Any ideas appreciated!
