I am trying to install x-plane demo to make sure it will run before purchasing the full version.  I am running it on Vista 32bit dedicated machine with 4GB RAM and have changed my virtual memory to the /3GB.  When loading, the load screen stays on loading the Cessna 172 and appears to be loading (the bar moves back and forth a little) but never loads (I left it over night in one attempt.)  It gets stuck in the same spot each time and have reinstalled several times.  I have also tried it on my Windows 7 machine and it gets stuck in the same manner but on a different file.  I have installed x-plane 9 demo and it works fine.

I have turned off video card panels and updated the card drivers as well.

If X-Plane 9 runs fine you may want to stick with that. Otherwise you might try contacting customer support at and letting them know the things you've listed here. They have more experience with X-Plane 10 on older computers and operating systems.
