    Sounds like an issue with an AI model or texture. If you can identify them, move all the AI aircraft folders for that area out of the aircraft folder, leave the AI slider at the level where the sim...

    DXDIAG just analyzes the DX subsystem and reports if all files/functions are present and working properly. There are minimal options for enabling/disabling some functions.

    Just a note - this solution doesn't apply to Vista or later. Micro$oft changed the underlying sound system and there is no more acceleration.

    ENB can be added to nearly any sim or rpg, but at great expense to frame rates. It supposedly simulates a realistic "glow" to the environment, with an extensive .ini file to tweak various...

    Probably a one time glitch. D3D9.dll is part of the DX library, most likely graphics related. If the crash recurs, try uninstalling and reinstalling the vid drivers (you might try an older set),...

    You have my condolences; Vista is not an OS, it's a POS. My best recommendation, before you get too much on your system, is to get W7. That said, I've been running FS9 in Vista for years; most...
