It looks like you are having a tough time as you are unable to play the game ‘Microsoft Flight Simulator X’ properly as there are performance issues on the computer.
Let me gather some information:
1) Are you trying to play the game or install it?
2) Do you receive any error message?
3) Did you get a prompt to install the DirectX 9.0 while playing the game?
4) What is the version of Microsoft Flight Simulator X game that you are trying to play?
I would like to tell you that the compatibility of this game depends on the version as some of the versions seems to be compatible, while some other are not and some of them have no information
on Windows compatibility center. Refer to the link:
Many thanks for your help. I am using FSX Gold with Acceleration which was installed & worked perfectly on Win 7.
After upgrading to Win 8, the sound "stutters" when loading the program, & after loading it, the picture stops & starts, every few minutes, as if the frame rate was very low, or there was insufficient memory.
The computer runs at 4.2 GHz & there is 8 GB memory - Graphics card is GTX560Ti & all drivers are up to date.
I am aware that Win 8 has DirectX 11, & that FSX supposedly runs better on DirectX 9, but the installer will only use the latest version, & I don't know how to make FSX change back to the 9 version which I used before.
I will try your suggestions.
