Space Shuttle (FSX) in Windows 8

I have done all the Flights in the Space Shuttle (Entry, TAEM and Approach) several times each, and it works perfectly in FSX in Windows 8.

Too bad I can't say the same for my piloting skills in the Space Shuttle. I crashed several times doing the Entry flight. Shocked

Where did you buy the Space Shuttle from?
Can you download a new exe (css001_1100.exe) using the Extended Download Service:
Login to Your Profile > Product (Space Shuttle [FSX]) > Extended Download Service
and install from the newly download installer?

Note. I bought mine from the Captain Sim online store, so I only have a downloaded exe to install from, not a disc, and it installs like it should.

hi mark ,

it comes from a fellow flight sim guy who sells on ebay ;

it was supposed to be new old stock sealed dvd ,

disc itself looks brand new but i am starting to think there must be an issuse with the disc ,  only 1 disc in dvd box and guessing theres only 1 dvd disc,    but because it wasnt sealed thats why i am gusessing dvd disc fault,

all of my other FSX dlc discs all installed without any issuses,

the disc goes to install langaue and then 2 or 3 seconds stops , so has to be a disc issuse,

reason i am back on FSX from MF20 IS because this
year i was in hospital from covid and some nice person broke into my home and stole my pc , and all of my retro megadrive and playstation 1,2,3,4, xbox 360 and all the games which goes with all mof that,   
i enjoy old flight sims and because insurance are finding exuses not to pay out ,
i had to buy a pc which would handle fsx BUT MSFS IS ABIT TOO MUCH LOL,

SORRY about the long winded message and i guess i will send back the space shuttle disc back to the ebay seller for a refund and then come back on here and buy the download version,

all the best mark

By "sealed dvd" is the box it came in an original store bought box? If so, who is the seller of the boxed product (i.e. Just flight)?

Note. I know that Just Flight sold boxed versions of the Captain Sim C -130, 727, and 757, but not the Space Shuttle, but... that might be because I never looked for it, nor saw it.

hi mark

i just received another new old stock sealed space shuttle exspanion boxed dvd ,

its the same as the other dvd,

it has [ just flight ] on cover and [ captain sim ] on dvd pc game disc and on the box cover also,

made sure disc is clean and tried to install it onto fsx and does the same as the 1st disc,

space shuttle menu screen comes up you have a choice either fx2004 or FSX,

PRESS ON FSX TO INSTALL AND LANGAUGE SCREEN THENS COMES UP ,#
IT STARTS TO INSTALL BUT ONLY FOR 2 TO 3 SECONDS  THEN NOTHING,

ITS ALL IT WILL DO ON THE 1ST DISC I BOUGHT AND SADLY TO 2ND DISC,

so clearly nothing wrong with the 1st disc,

any ideas please,

kind regards mark

Compatibility issue? You might need to run the installer in Winows 7 Compatibilty mode.
First, you need to use Windows Explorer, navigate to the disc > right click on start.exe (providing it's the same as it is for my copy of the Just Flight 737 Pilot in Command) > select Properties > click on the Compatibility tab > in the Compatibility mode, checkmark the box next to "Run this programe in compatibilty mode for:", the select Windows 7* from the dropdown list beneath that sentence > then in the Settings box, checkmark the box beside "Run this programe as an administrator > click Apply > click OK

Now. Double click on the start.exe, select Yes when the publisher unknown box ask you if you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to make changes to your device. It will start like before, but hopefully it will complete the install.

*  If Windows 7 doesn't work, try Windows XP (Service Pack 3).

thanks mark

sadly i already tried all of your recomends before i came on here lol,

i did read some where that a file called SECDRV.SYS dont work in windows 10 yet it works in every other microsoft windows OS,

they deleted it from windows 10,

space shuttle is the only add on DLC  that ive found will not install for FSX

TBH i am gutted and wasted alot of time lol.

i did ask just flight in the form of there support ticket , but almost 1 week ago still have not heard anything back from them , they sent the comfirmation email ticket so i know its in there system.

they still sell the game also plus they did the boxed version,

but with almost 1 week gone by i dont hold alot of hope,


SPACE SHUTTLE will have to be put on hold sadly,

big thanks anyway mark.

Hmm. That's interesting. I did a search on the Just Flight site, and got no results. I used "space shuttle", "space", "shuttle", and "Captain Sim" (without the " ") and the Space Shuttle never showed.
So I went through every page of products in their store, for both FSX, and FS 2004, and I didn't find it there either. Sad

hi mark

its still available on captain sim as a download £19.99

but clearly its been taken off just flight , it was there  ,

i dont understand why they do that ,  i dont expext a life time warranty lol,

just flight did the disc version of captains sims space shuttle,

all other just flight disc versions of other dlc works as do other brands,

it seems there was an issuse between JUST FLIGHT  and CAPTAIN SIM ,

ands as you have seen just flight instead of helping have just removed any trace now,

thats just sad as i now have 2 copies of space shuttle exspansion just flights disc version of captain sims SSE

and reading posts and reviews of the past for people who bought the disc version  ,
it was a 50/50 wether it would work or install or in quite a few cases break FSX completly, 

hence why you or i now cannot find anything,,

i will have to save and wait till i can afford CAPTAIN SIMS download version,

i even emailed a month or 2 ago , 1 of the games devoplers who still works for just fight , but sadly no reply   lol.

I'm not sure why it won't install from the disk for you. I just tested my another company Combat Helicopters (Nemith Chinook and Huey), and it worked fine. However, I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64bit.
Captain Sim sometimes have a 9.99 euro sale (around the end of the year, or the beginning of the year), and at the moment, 9.99 euros, is around $US11.55, so you could save a bit by waiting for that (hopefully they'll have another sale in December/January).

Glad you got it working.

Yeah. There are only 3 entry flights, but have you been able to land at Cape Canaveral without crashing yet? As for me, although I haven't tried it for a couple of years, I did manged to land it there the last time I tried. Smiley
