Problem when launching FSX. "XACT audio init failed 0x88890010"

Recommended Posts


I have a problem while launching fsx after installing aeorosoft airbus x extended. Error window says "XACT audio init failed" and error no. 0x88890010. It also says to seek for support but doesn't say to whom I should ask. Google search showed links related to RAAS. After failed launched fsx automatically restarts and starts properly.

  1. If you have two sound cards running in parallel, disable one of them.
  2. If you are running any program in the background that attempts to strip Digital Music Rights (DRM) from music, such as Tune BiteSound Taxi, Audials or Sound Bite, please disable them.  They interfere with FS2Crew's Audio Engine.  Some of these types of programs are legal in parts of Europe, but they are not legal in the United Sates.
  3. Re-install FS2Crew again, but do not click 'cancel' during the install.  Wait for the install to finish.
  4. If using a Creative Labs X-Fi Extreme Audio Sound Card, uninstall the latest driver and re-install the original driver off the CD that came with your Sound Card.  The latest driver conflicts with the FS2Crew Audio engine.  (If you no longer have your original driver disk, click here to download the original driver).
  5. Sometimes users have corrupt system files/data on their Operating System.  They solved their problem by doing a clean re-install of their OS or by repairing their OS.  Follow this link to learn how to repair a corrupt Windows 7 installation.  You will need to go to the Windows Download Center and Download Windows 7, for example, with SP1 and install using the Update option.  You will need to re-activate Windows 7.
