  1. FSX and DirectX version

    Just installed FSX on a new computer. When I start FSX I get an "DirectX incompatible" message that tells me to install DirectX 9 or go to MS and install the latest version. I checked and I have version 12. What else do I have to do to get FSX to run?

  2. Service pack for FSX to fix DirectX 12 compatibility

    My question is, will a possible service pack be coming out for FSX to fix the DirectX 12 compatibility issue. I have windows 10 installed on my computer, but DirectX 12 isn't compatible with FSX so I've been told. I have it set to "preview DirectX 10."
    That allows me to play the game, but some functionality is lost because of this version of DirectX. Unless a service pack comes out, I will have to keep it in this form in order to play the game.
