    SO, I have a 2020 macbook pro. I got windows to download and run off of an external hard drive. I first had difficulties downloading and installing MFS through the microsoft store. So i downloaded steam and downloaded it off of that. But every time I try to run it I get a D3DRenderer_Z error code.

    My Mac is completely up to date, all my drivers are updated on the mac side and windows hard drive. I have windows 10 downloaded and up to date. I just don't know what to do. I'm not a big tech person but I am great at following direction if someone could help!

    Hi Dewald,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that the Flight Sim X is not running after the first startup closed. We will help you.

    • What is the make and model of your PC?
    I suggest you to update graphics drivers
    and check if the same issue persists.

    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager.
    • Search for Display Adapters and expand it.
    • Right click on the graphics driver
      and select Update driver software.
    • Restart the System and check opening the application again.
    If the above steps do not work, then I suggest you to contact the manufacturer of the game. They would assist you better with the issue.

    Keep us informed if the issue is resolved. We are glad to help you further.
