Hi, I'm Ham.

I've been flying since MSFS's creation on and off and i'm with Delta Virtual. It's great to be here, I've acquired many aircraft from the library over the years, thanks for that. 

 

Other than to say hello, i am seeking help with a FSX display issue and i'm really not sure where to go in the forum. I do not think it's a hardware issue. 


But i finally (reluctantly) moved into a Windows 10 environment, and the only problem i'm having is when i hit W and change the view, if i try to open the GPS it opens for 1 second and then it disappears  along with the gauges.   On any aircraft. I do remember this happening occasionally in the past with certain add on aircraft on my old setup(Win XP and Win7) ...but for most it worked fine. It seems like it's related to Windows 10.
I tried changing 2D / 3D and many other display settings but no luck so far.
I have a 1gb PCIE card, driver is current. Same card i used on my Win7 machine. No other display issues. 

Any thoughts or ideas?

Hi and WELCOME! to AVSIM. Sorry I can't help you with the display issue. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will come along with some suggestions.

You may want to post your query in the FSX section. Are you using FSX or FSX Steam Edition? I don't think it should make a difference, but I'm not sure.

Ham,

Welcome!  Try following the guidance in the AVSIM FSX Configuration Guide.  See my signature for link to guide.  Windows 10 and FSX work well together for me and others.

Regarding the W key, perhaps the following will help - https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/63462-w-key-problem/.  I actually have never had the need to use the W key in FSX so cannot help you.  Appears it only works in 2D cockpit mode.

In Windows 10, you should right click the FSX icon and select Run as Administrator.

Best regards,

Jim
