    Hello Flight Simulater will not run under windows XP as it is bringing up a message saying

    Software 3D Enabled (In the title bar)

    Safe mode has been enabled because your system is currently unable to use hardware acceleration. While in Safe mode, you will be able to run Flight Simulator and troubleshoot hardware issues, but performance and display quality will be affected. Product Support safe mode. For more information, see the Readme, Which is available from the flight simulator link in windows start menu.

    Then a OK Button is displaed

    The Graphics card is a Nvidia graphics card.
    It did work on windows 98 then i upgraded to windows XP And that is when the message keeped appearing i have tryed to reinstall flight simulator and that did not work and i have tryed to adjust the graphic settings in the game it self but that has not worked. So any idears?

    Thanks for any advice

    Have you installed video drivers for your video card other than the ones provided by windows.

    if you go to start/run/type dxdiag and press enter, display tab, are all three settings enabled, can you run the direct draw and direct 3d tests sucessfully
