Has anyone tried to run squawkbox on 64 bit windows 7? I installed it and after this fsx refuses to load correctly. It just brings up the splash screen and stops. Uninstalled SB and this fixed the issue.

That's what I have. I use SB4, and I start it separately after FSX has started up at an airport, rather than from the FSX menu system, running it as administrator.

Ah UAC. What a pain. Do you run both SB4 and fsx as administrator or just SB4?

Both. Anything that allows it, I do it. CVAcars, FlightSimCommander do not. ServInfo, Ultimate Terrain do. Etc. Right click will show if it needs it.

I think I also changed the permissions on the folder called "Program Files (x86)", which is the default program installation folder. If you don't install anything there, it won't matter. If you do, it might not install correctly without the permissions. Then you won't' know why things aren't working.

I had a look at the properties just now and can't see what I did. But everything has worked for the last 6 months. I got this W7-64 machine in June and had everything tweaked after about a month.
