I'll take a guess here... It may be possible that FSX is looking for DX10 since you have the 64 bit OS running. I run Vista 64 w/ DX10 and have no issues.

Just remember that you can only get DX10 with Vista 32 or 64. I don't believe that you will ever be able to get it without making the Vista plunge. Im running a an NVidia 8800 GTS.New Ro - woot!
