If a program is DX10 native, it will automatically use DX10, however. FSX is dx9 native so is best run in this mode. The DX10 preview mode in FSX is buggy and most addons aren't compatible with it. So DX9 is recommended. To run it in DX9, just uncheck the box DX10 Preview in the graphics settings in FSX.

What OS are you using ? Win 7 is DX9 backward compatible. you can check your DX version by running dixdiag . FSX just has DX10 preview and it is == I am an idiot! == has problems.

Aces never finished DX10 in FSX that's why they called it a preview mode lol and it has actually a few bugs ;-)In case of FSX unfortunately DX9 is the best way to use and for compatibility with add-on software...In FSX you can see in settings > graphics tab if the "preview mode DX10" is enabled or not...
