When you run Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000, sounds in the program may be cut off, break up, or be played inconsistently.


This behavior can occur if a Creative Labs Sound Blaster PCI 64 sound card is installed in your computer.


To resolve this issue, download and install the latest version of the sound driver for your sound card from the following Creative Labs Web site:

To work around this issue in Microsoft Windows 98, reduce the audio hardware acceleration setting:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type dxdiag, and then click OK.
  3. Click the Sound tab.
  4. Under DirectX Features, move the Hardware Sound Acceleration Level slider all the way to the left (the No acceleration setting).
  5. Click Exit.

NOTE: These steps require that Microsoft DirectX 7.0 or later is installed on the computer.
