    I am running Windows 7 and have Flight Simulatorx loaded and runningOK.I have 2 problems
    1. When I press"R" to activate Simulation Rate, nothing happens;I have to use Options/Simulation rate to activate it.
    2. When I click on Settings/Customize to go to the Graphics window, I can only see Lens Flare- Light Bloom-and advanced Animations. I cannot see Directx Preview to enable it.
    Can some kind soul point me in the right direction please..............Dave ..Email........ [email protected]

    you can try to run the game in Compatible mode.

    1. Right-click the exe. file and choose Properties.
    2. Under the Compatibility tab, please check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and choose "Windows Vista".
    3. Check the box before “Run this program as an Administrator” below.
    4. Click OK to save the settings.
    5. Start the game with the DirectX option is checked to test if it works fine now.
