    problems with FSX since update to W10 latest

    My FSX Gold edition was workign fine but since the last Windows update it would not launch any more. Double click on the icon and nothing happens.

    I tried uninstalling but now it won't re-install any more. I get the screen asking if I want to repair or remove and nothing I tried would let me get the normal install screen. I tried IoBit Uninstaller Pro but that didn't help. If I chose the repair option it sterts then stops with the message "this only works for installed products". Any specific tool that would really hunt for all pieces of the software and remove them? Or something else I should try?

    Thanks for any help.

    windows 10 graphics and fsx

    Good day All
    first post so I hope it is in the correct place.
    I upgraded from W7 to W10 and the only problem I had with fsx was that my 2nd monitor(acer AL1715) will only show the right hand half of the screen when I drag a screenshot from the No1 monitor(Samsung syncmaster p2350).
    When NOT in fsx the 2nd monitor shows full screen if I drag from No1 screen.
    Seems like it is a compatibility problem if it will work ok when not in fsx.
    I know the acer is old monitor but W10 must have accepted the old driver for this if it shows ok when not in fsx.
    I have asked this question in the FS forums but no suggestions.
    can anyone help please
    I thanks

    W10 1703 Update deleted FSX


    Compatibility issue or outdated application may be the possible reason why your FSX game was deleted. For us to better assist you, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Does your Microsoft Flight Simulator X game updated?
    • Does this happen only with your FSX game or with other apps also?
    • Have you tried reinstalling FSX?

    Any response will be highly appreciated.

    FSX Opening Fault


    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We understand the difficulties you are facing with the launching of the FSX. To have clarity on the issue we would like to know, if you have tried any troubleshooting steps.

    We would like to inform you that Flight Simulator X is not compatible in Windows 10. However, we would suggest you to try these steps and check if you get the error.

    1. Completely uninstall FSX.
    2. Remove all files that are in
      C:\Program Files.

    3. Reboot the machine and disable any
      security software or firewalls for the period of the install and activation.
    4. Install FSX in
    5. Activate FSX from first startup.
    6. Reboot the PC and check.

    If the above steps did not fix the issue, then follow these steps after installing the FSX in compatibility mode:

    1. Press Windows + R key from the keyboard and type
    2. Expand the following registry key:
    3. After you find the folder, double-click
      Upperfilters on the right side.
    4. Delete all other values except
    5. Close Registry Editor.
    6. Start FSX you should get the registration wizard.
    7. Activate and reboot the system to check the issue.

    As an additional information, you can refer Solve
    problems with activation issues for Microsoft games and mapping programs
    article, if this helps you to troubleshoot.

    We await your response.
