do you remember what do you have installed before the crash problem? it was after the update or some aircraft you have installed? Or after Fsx installation? Bytheway i heard about someone having problem with the 9.1 update...

Issue with generic.bgl and the Update setup -
Some third-party scenery providers update generic.bgl as part of their package. In certain cases, this updated generic.bgl file will cause the Update to terminate before completing installation. A message will be displayed: "The original file (generic.bgl) is either missing or has been changed from its original state. The update cannot continue and will now exit". You need to re-install the default generic.bgl file that came with the original Flight Simulator 2004 setup files before attempting the update installation.

To install the default generic.bgl file:
Insert the "Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight" CD-ROM number 3 in your CD-ROM drive.
Click the Windows Start button and choose "My Computer."
Highlight and right-click the icon for the CD-ROM drive containing the number 3 CD-ROM. From the right-click menu, choose Open.
Select MSGAME8.CAB and open it using Windows Explorer.
Copy generic.bgl to the Generic\scenery subdirectory of your Flight Simulator installation directory. (For example, C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\Scenery\Generic\scenery.)
Remove the CD-ROM from the drive and restart the Update setup.

Note: Previously installed the 3rd party add-on software for Flight Simulator may not work. If any action (such as re-installing the 3rd party add-on software) causes an overwrite of the updated generic.bgl, you will lose significant fixes to performance and autogen included in the Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight (update).

How to Uninstall the Update

If you want to uninstall the update, follow these steps.
Go to the Flight Simulator root directory.
Double-click the FS9UpdateUninstall.exe icon.
Delete the BACKUP folder.

My FS 2004 is still crashing? I was not able to open the file MSGAME8.CAB I did uninstall the patch 9.1 and tried to fly again and the same thing. The only extra plans I have installed is SR71, ATR 72-500, Dash - 8, Seahawk and boxer. My game was not doing this before? Does one of the games sound like a problem?
