FSX install on new Win 10 computer

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a new gaming computer and installed FSX boxed edition on it. Had some trouble but it is working good now, except that I only have 1 of each of the default aircraft showing up to fly with. Checked the aircraft.cfg files in each type of plane and all entries and texture files are there; its only allowing the plane listed as "flightsim.0" to load. Other than that it's working fine with great FPS(100+). Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

Me too! I did the same thing the other day and after two hours of frustration (and a few choice words:laugh:) I finally figured out what it was.....talk about feeling like a dummy.....

The good news for me is that FSX is running good in Win 10, and many of my addons are working too, like FDC Live! Cockpit and GSX. Others like Carenado Beech B1900D and Flight 1 ATR72-500, not so good.....they apparently just aren't compatible with Win 10. Just bought this new gaming computer and it had Win 10 installed on it, but overall getting 45+ FPS on complex aircraft and scenery and 100+ flying the Cessna Skythawk; pretty cool.....
