Re: Microsoft blocking account Windows 11

No sorry its not via outlook. She accesses using the Edge browser. I did find a Microsoft account in the name of her late husband. He used outlook for his business but not on her laptop. Tried to delete it but couldn't due to W11 security. I'm hoping the local computer shop knows of a method to circ...

Re: Microsoft blocking account Windows 11

She has Windows 11 home edition. The Pro version doesn't need Microsoft Account to login. It's also blocked her recovery phone number. After going around in circles she's taken it to computer shop where she lives hopefully they can fix it.

Re: Microsoft blocking account Windows 11

Hi Steve it's a new account created via the Microsoft outlook client.

I'll see the lady concerned Tuesday afternoon and try that. She used the same login details for her Microsoft account.

Re: Windows 7 problems

Right I'm back home. Just checked and I have the same process tree. Never seen on w7. I guess w11 handles the processes differently. Strange my copy of FS9 works fine. FSX starts with an error message then works fine. W11 is one weird beast

Re: Windows 7 problems

I had that whilst using filezilla if you open task master you can see two processes running. Kill one of them and it works.
Might be that is causing it.


I'm using no CD in my fs2004 too.

Re: Windows 7 problems

Fs2004 installed first time. I heard that w11 have a safe CD system... Didn't w7 have something similar.

Is your anti-virus software blocking the install.

Fsx installed OK too.

Re: Windows 7 problems

Starting on the new build. The disk controller chip on my old PC's motherboard had failed hence the weird SSD reading.

Anyone know where I can buy FSX Gold CD ROM from? Not stocked by Amazon although the Acceleration upgrade is.
