New YS Keeps Crashing On Startup

I completely uninstalled the 2011 version to install the 2012 version but now when I start it, running windows 7 it says something like 'an error forced the program to close'. Anyone know how I can fix this?

more details, is it windows 7 64 or 32? when does it crash? does it open and show the black screen with white writing on it?
If so, the last line it shows before crashing might help diagnose the problem
Other than that i would suggest reinstalling the 2012 version in a completely different folder somewhere (like on desktop), it'll probs still crash, but its worth checking.

i havent upgraded, so it may be a bugged version or a clash with your graphics card or other drivers.
EDIT: it turns out that's the version i downloaded the other day so i can confirm it works fine on all my computers (windows 7 64 and 32 and xp)
redownload it from source and try again. keep it simple, dont have any joystick plugged in on first run. let me know if any of this helps.
I'd also suggest running a reg_clean after every uninstall, especially if its an uninstall before a new version is installed (of any program)

PS:@decaff that sounds like a seperate issue. although there is no need to uninstall the old so it is relativent :P

I saw windows 7 and crashing, and thought of that one. It's possible that they may be somewhat related. I'm glad the mac version works fine. :)

windows 7 isnt bad at all. you just need to not mess it up. that said i've never tried running anything as anything other than "Overlord of the OS" (well admin, but that doesnt sound as cool) and even then it keeps asking my permission to do... what i just told it.

I can imagine trying to install things NOT as admin could royally mess things up.

Thanks for your replies guys, I think im just gunna stick to the 2011 version but FYI, it is windows 7 x64, the black screen loading the .lst files shows up and it keeps crashing while is loading, can't remember the exact lst it crashes on but the problem was happening on open gl and D3D. Let me k ow if you find out how to fix this. Venom is also on windows 7 and he is having the same problems

My copy is working fine, but my weapons are not appearing on the plane, or in the air after being dropped or fired.

I had the same issue on startup, try running scenery editor and take a look at the loading window - it should display which file(s) is causing the problem.

I forgot to mention that my incident occurred after replacing the default weapon skins.

May I ask as to what was causing the issue with weapon visibility during flight?

Hi.

I recently downloaded the new (2012) version of ysfs but now cannot install any add-ons/packs.

Is that because they are not compatible?

Also, where can i download the 2011 version as i prefer it, if its not availible for download, could somebody please email a zip folder containing the 2011 version, i'll send a message with my email address once somebody reply

Thanks
