    I'd appreciate to know some links explaining how to setup a fresh fsx install
    on vista, having the game already in progress on xp sp2 in order to match the
    current game state before uninstalling from the older system.
    (game state meaning rewards, missions, ...to be able to go on without
    noticing any difference).
    Is it possible, did anybody succeed in doing that?
    thx, ric

    I've done this in many games.
    Diffrent games stores it in diffrent places, for example my game stored this
    in my documents in special folder named the same as game, another stored it
    in aplication data folder in my profile. Most games stores profile on
    network or in folder when it was installed.

    Please give name of game, maybe someone will know where profile of game is
    stored.

    Thanks, you are right. In fact, considering ms flight sim X, I had found both
    folders (one in my folder docs, one in application data of my profile) and
    put them in place under vista. But rewards are not reported correctly at all,
    and also completed missions are not checkmarked as they ought to be (and
    perhaps other issues i am not aware of..yet).
    I dont see any useful information in the game folder, I assume the migration
    is not possible, or at least does not work smoothly.
    I have asked here hoping someone could observe/experience the same kind of
    problem.
    Although it's not a big deal, resetting everything is not pleasant and
    personally I hate it. Bye, ric
