Win 10 I tried

Recommended Posts

Well today I did the update.  Love Win 10 but FSX would not load right.  Slow loading time and then freezing before getting into a flight.  I did the recommended Nvidia driver, delete shader folder and cfg  tried different compatibility modes but no luck.  Back to Win 7 and everthing loads fast and back to normal.  Too bad I really wanted this work.  I guess my next step would be to do a clean install of Win 10 and fsx and the many addons I have (Orbx trees and global ftx PNW and Northern Rockies, ASN, Opus, dx10 fixer, pmdg 737, 777, q400, precptitfx and fs2crew for the addons).



Like I said I tried and will probably try again down the road if I read about someone who had the same issues and found a fix.


Better luck next time

Clean install did it for me, got serious problems when updated Win7 into Win10.

Lot of work reinstalling all of my addons though....

It took me a few hours to upgrade to windows 10, but I also had to go back to win 7. 


1) No driver support for GoFlight Modules.

2) Need a driver for my Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium HD. It should be here soon.

3) The first time I loaded FSX in dx9 mode, it loaded fine, but AA was missing from Inspector. It looked bad. After exiting FSX, and restarting, win 10 changed something regarding compatibility, and I lost the preview plane. When I tried to load FSX it was a mess graphically.


I reset my computer and I'm back to win 7. It's too bad because I wanted to test the gns 430/530 units and my F1 Mustang. 


I'll wait for drivers and a windows 10 guide. I'm sure that one will pop-up sooner or later.
