I have a new windows 8 computer (asus g75v ) for gaming, and NVidia gtx 670m graphics. I installed fsx gold and when I am into a minute into the game a message comes up "Microsoft flight simulator has stopped working" this program has found a problem. it gives me a prompt to close down the program to the desktop. Is there a fix or at least a workaround so I can play this game in the windows 8 enviorment? any help for this newbie would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

So you need to download and run AppCrashView - [url="http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/app_crash_view.html"]http://www.nirsoft.n...crash_view.html[/url] and copy and paste the crash report here. Thanks.

Are you overclocking? Are you using any FSX.cfg tweaks? For me this usually indicates an OC that is too high or a system that is not set up correctly. Can you run prime95 for at least 15 minutes without a failure? Also check your Application logs. If this is your error:
[size="1"]Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.61472.0, time stamp: 0x475e17d3[/size]
[size="1"]Faulting module name: uiautomationcore.dll, version: 7.2.9200.16384, time stamp: 0x50108725[/size]

Then set FSX.EXE compatibility to VISTA SP2. Cheers jja
