iFly products and Flight1 installers do not work for those using CD4 in the Rom Drive to start FS2004, or a Virtual Copy of CD4 in a Virtual Rom Drive.
This is due to the necessity for iFly and Flight1 to adapt our security system to function with Microsoft’s changes to Windows 8 and 10 and the updated Windows 7. The Microsoft changes block the use of a CD to authenticate and start a game.
Customers using Windows XP SP3 or Windows 7 SP1 without the Microsoft update who are still able to start FS2004 with CD4, or a virtual copy of it, will not be able to use the revised iFly Products in Flight1 Installers.
There is a very easy workaround for this, which may be found by an internet search. Licensed users may also see this thread: http://ifly.flight1.net/forums/forum_posts.asp?TID=14817&title=solved-windows-81-and-fs9
Taking the time to read and follow these instructions prior to your purchase of the software will produce a smooth transition to the exciting world of the iFly 737NG simulation. The other side of the coin is also true: not following the directions will produce no end of trouble.
Before you start downloading the files from the Flight1 servers please make sure you:
1.Turn off Anti Virus, All Security Software
2.Turn off Windows Defender
3.For Vista, Windows 7 and Higher, set UAC (user account control) to the lowest level and leave it there.
4.Turn off the Windows firewall for the download and installation.
5.Do not download using Google Chrome, which corrupts files.
6. Vista, Win7 and Higher users must run the Installer and then the Config tool created by the install as Administrator. (right click the executable file and select option "Run as administrator")
IMPORTANT NOTE: We do not officially support any version of Windows 8.
We suggest Flight1's Download Manager for a hassle free download: http://www.flight1.com/F1Download.zip. It will help prevent corrupt downloads.
After the download and installation and prior to loading the iFly 737, register for forum support as outlined here http://ifly.flight1.net/forums/forum_posts.asp?TID=12&title=how-to-get-access-to-the-licensed-member-area then read all the pinned topics in the forum where support for your version is provided.
Please be certain your computer meets the minimum requirements outlined on the Flight 1 product pages. Finally, FS2004 version 9.1 is required and it is available here: http://files.100megabyte.com/ifly/fs91upd.exe Otherwise, the simulation will not function properly.
