When I try and load Microsoft Flight Simulator 98 on a P90 with 48 MB Ram, and the first version of Win95, I get an 'MCI device error', saying;
MMSYSTEM263 This is not a registered MCI device.
The same CD works perfectly on my other computer, so why is it not working?
Please help...

In control panel, multimedia, advanced tab:
In Media Control Devices there's an ActiveMovie MCI Driver (hopefully).  Hitting properties for that driver brings up a screen where you can check to see if it's been disabled ("do not use this device").
  If that device isn't listed, that might be your problem.
That means you need to add the Multimedia accessories in windows setup.  (control panel, add/remove programs, windows setup - and have your CD handy)
  If it still doesn't work, I'd suggest service packs or getting version 95B of windows.
