1. As soon as I start FS9 I get the error message: "Your computer has run out of available memory. Flight simulator will now exit... etc."
Sorry, but OOM error can't be caused by the program.
Removed the bglman.dll files from the modules folder and FS9 boots ok.
That's probably because of antivirus interference.
2. When I select any of the Cloud9 Phantoms to fly, as soon as I select ok to load that flight, I get an immediate crash to desktop, and I have to start FS9 all over.
No, you don't get a crash, you get a *quit* to desktop because, since you removed the Addon Manager, the Phantom will of course not work without it.
Removed the main panel folder from the cloud9 Phantom Clean and everything loads ok.
No, it doesn't. Doing this way, you loaded only the airplane model, without gauges so, nothing will work anyway. The Phantom of course needs everything that gets installed, both the Addon Manager AND the Gauges so, if you remove things manually, it's normally nothing will work.
3. Where do I go to do the activation or register my serial number?
Since you removed the Addon Manager, there's obviously no way to register the program anymore, which is usually under the Addon Manger menu, which of course it's not there anymore, since you remove it.
As explained here:http://www.fsdreamteam.com/forum/index.php?topic=3777.0
And in several other threads, the problem is likely caused by your antivirus, that has mistakenly confused the Addon Manager as a threat, and it has blocked it, or corrupted, or blocked its download.
- During installation, you need to TURN THE ANTIVIRUS OFF. Not just quit from its interface: you need to stop realtime protection. Yes, this is important.
- After the installation, BEFORE launching FS9, you need to instruct your antivirus to exclude this file from scanning:
Or, the whole MODULES folder.
- After having configured the antivirus this way, you can finally turn it on, and launch FS9
