Aero is disabled when running FSX since they both would be trying to access the same resources. FSX and most 3-D applications aren't compatible with the new Desktop Window Manager and Aero in Vista.Regards,Jim Karn

I have no problems with Vista x64 and no KBs needed.Video drivers, however, are something you may need to worry about for the best experience.I'd search the hardware forum for tips on that.Regards,Etienne

>I have no problems with Vista x64 and no KBs needed.>You'd need a KB fix if you tried to connect to an old router under Vista64. ;)I found that out the hard way last weekend. :)RhettE8500, Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64

>>so>can anyone start FSX without Aero going to basic?>I can't. There might be a workaround, but the real question is......why would a person want to do that? I mean, running Aero+FSX would take resources away from FS. You'd increase your chances of getting stutters and lower frame rates, with all of those apps demanding gpu and cpu and D3D API calls at the same time.RhettE8500, Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64

You can never have too many resources for FSRhettE8500, Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64

You may want to temporarily disable the Windows Vista Glass and Aero features and refresh the Flight Simulator X window to restore it to its normal operating appearance (see the Windows Vista Updates section below as well).To disable Windows Vista Glass and Aero features globallyRight-click the Windows desktop and then click Personalize. Click Window Color and Appearance. Clear the Enable transparency check box. In the color scheme list, select Windows Vista Basic. Click OK. To enable Windows Vista Glass and Aero features globallyRight-click the Windows desktop and then click Personalize. Click Window Color and Appearance. Select the Enable transparency check box. In the color scheme list, select Windows Vista Aero. Click OK.To disable Windows Vista Glass and Aero features only when running Flight Simulator XOpen Windows Explorer and navigate to the folder in which you installed Flight Simulator X. Right-click FSX.exe and then click Properties. On the Compatibility tab, select the Disable desktop composition check box. Click OK.In a nutshell. FSX and Aero DO NOT play well together at all. Hence why one would want to disable Aero when running FSX. The above statements were to give FSX users different options for disabling Aero (Not for enabling it with FSX running).I beleive Vista itself now (post SP1) automatically disables Aero when FSX is ran. Keep in mind the above was posted some time ago on FSInsider and is not up to date. You don't need a patch, Aero is supposed to be disabled. ;)

You will notice FSX is on this list. This update will disable Aero when FSX is run. It is rolled into Vista SP1. So if you have Vista SP1 installed or this update already installed you will not be allowed to reinstall it.Aero is disabled when FSX is run to prevent your computer from crashing hence the compatibility update for Vista. http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=932246
