What is the error you are seeing exactly?FSX is a DX9 program (by default), and should not be affected whatsoever by the fact that W7 has DX11 support. For the vast majority of users, FSX & W7 "just worked" right out of the box. Do provide more details on the error, your system specs, and any other pertinent information and perhaps we can lend more of a hand!-Greg

The error reads:" Microsoft Flight Simulator cannot run because the version of DirectX ® installed on your computer is incompatible. Please re-install DirectX9.0 by running Flight Simulator Set-up or download the current version from www.microsoft.com/directX."System: MSI 7350 w/ Intel Quad 4 email@example.com g. nVidia 9600 512 RAM. Windows 7 Professional 32 ( couldn't install 64) Lots of storage. I guess my question is what happens if I try to install another version of DirectX as opposed to the version that came with Windows 7 ( DirectX 11)? Or, if anyone else has run into this error and how to deal with it.Thanks.

Thank you, I actually did do that, and it did solve the problem. What apparently happens is that Windows 7 will switch to whatever version is required by a particular program and then switch back to DirectX11. The error message and failure to load threw me as I had seen nothing to this effect.Ed Green

For me also the same problem. My fsx does not work . Microsoft Flight Simulator cannot run because the version of DirectX ® installed on your computer is incompatible. Please re-install DirectX9.0 by running Flight Simulator Set-up or download the current version from www.microsoft.com/directX.I dont know which directx to download. I downloaded directx 9 but still its not working on my xp computer.
