I've gone back to Windows 7 but while I was running Windows 8 (64bit) I had no issues with the NGX.

I've been running the NGX along with all my other add-ons on Windows 8 for over a month now and haven't had any problems, I'm really enjoying the general performance improvements over Win 7. One thing to be aware of though there is a 'disappearing controller' issue that pops up in FSX for a lot of people running Win 8 including myself. I've now gotten around this issue now by running FSX in Win 7 compatibility mode as well as configuring all my control axes directly via FSUIPC full version and completely disabling them in FSX.

 

More info about this can be found in the following thread.
