I just upgraded my system and wanted to play Falcon 4.0.
I have the armed forces disk from years ago.
When I try to install it using win 7 64 bit it just hangs during install.
Checking for something.
I know others use this program in win 7.
Any suggestions?

Yep!

Falcon BMS

Prepare to be blown away. However it does require the original Falcon 4.0 CD. Get BMS here:

https://www.bmsforum.org/forum/showthread.php?26567-Falcon-BMS-4-33-U1-Full-Installer

Then get the updates there, too. Enjoy!


As for getting the original CD to install, hmm, I dunno. What I DO know is BMS requires the 4.0 registry entries to be present before it installs. Perhaps someone else here can help with the original install.

I registered and logged on to the site but I'll be damned if I can find the download.
Where is the installer download?

Anyone have a profile for a Saitek x52 that will work in win 7 64 bit?

I do not use a X-52, but a good place to look is here:
