  1. "The MSXML SP2 component is not installed.." when opening Flight Simulator X


    Hello,


    Each time I am opening fsx.exe I get this following error:

    "The MSXML SP2 component is not installed.." when opening Flight Simulator X 7af9ef67-90c3-4e6e-b773-385e6ee90f1e?upload=true.png


    I installed the official msxml.msi component from microsoft.com but it didn't fix it, I even tried installing the component into the sfx directory, but nothing, and even reinstalling SFX completely.


    I really need help on this one, thanks.

    :)
