Your Microsoft Flight Simulator X must either up to Microsoft FSX Service Pack 2 or the Microsoft Acceleration expansion pack installed.
If you do not have either, then first install Microsoft Flight Simulator X Service Pack 1:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/d ... aae2f0409e
Then the Service Pack 2:http://www.fsinsider.com/downloads/Page ... Pack2.aspx

The installers need to find FSX, and cannot do so if the registry where the location is saved is corrupt. Try running this well-known utility to check and / or repair your FSX registry:http://www.flight1software.com/files/FS ... Repair.exeCRASHES or CTD'sWhen I select the CUB and choose FLY, FSX crashes
We have had one report of this, and this was related to Windows sound driver conflicts. Check this thread:http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtop ... 4&start=15SOUNDMy sound goes out in flight
The post below shows a user experiencing his sound going down in flight. We have not experienced this, but in the event you do, just open your CONTROLS menu (SHIFT-3) and lower and raise your Accu-Sim volume.http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtop ... 62&t=19337I can’t hear Heidi or any Accu-Sim soundshttp://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtop ... 62&t=19319
Quit FSX. Go to your Windows START menu and type in “DXDIAG”
Check that your Sound Acceleration is set to at least BASIC. NOTE: If you do not have a sound card, you may not have this option.Sounds are just not working
We had one user report the sounds were not working. He uninstalled his Microsoft .NET framework, which is a core Windows program, and re-installed it. Below is a direct link for the installation:http://www.microsoft.com/DOWNLOADS/deta ... laylang=enFLIGHT MODELMy aircraft will not bank and aggressively returns to the center

“When you star loading passengers, Click on "Flight & aircraft settings" and in "Disable payload weight and fuel update" select "weight and fuel disabled". This will mean that fuel and weight load will be read from whatever you set up with accusim, and not default FSP X payload model. So you center of gravity and other parameters will be correct.I Cannot See Heidi or some 2D Panels
Verify Advanced Animations = ON in Game Settings / Customize
If Advanced Animations is on, then your FSX SimConnect may be broken.I Cannot See My 2D Panels
Open your SETTINGS / CUSTOMIZE / AIRCRAFT and make sure your 2-D Panel Transparency is moved all the way to the left (0%).

How to fix SimConnect:
You can test if simconnect is working by opening up the default Cessna 172 and check to see if you have gauges. If you do not have gauges, then SimConnect is probably not working.
