    The good news is that YES, Flight Simulator Deluxe will work with Windows 7 64-bit OS...the bad news is that it is ratehr strange that your computer would lock up at that point during an install. Right off the bat, I don't know what it could be, but I would assume that first, you are installing from the dvds correct? Second, are your copies of the discs in good condition? I would honestly starty all over and see if the issue persists. It mey be a strange possibility that the discs are bad and you can see about getting them exchanged.

    MAke sure you are admin, make sure uAC is off, dont install it to the default folder, install it to say c:/fsx or another drive or you will have security issues. and things wont work, its a win7 thing.

    To expand on Mjrhealth's post, installing to the default folder won't hurt as long as you have turned off the UAC as he stated. There seems to be an advantage to installing to your own folder as opposed to the default one that FSX specifies, especially if you tend to install a lot of 3rd party add-ons which require copying/modifying files within the FSX directory.

    As risky as it sounds, on my laptop, I leave UAC off all the time. I have a firewall and antivirus program installed and running and I have yet to have any breaches, crashes or any other issues systemwide due to this setting change...take it for what it's worth, but if you side with caution, then follow Mjrhealth's suggestions.
