Thread: Help! FSX won't work with Window 8.1 (official 8.1 release).

  1. Angry Help! FSX won't work with Window 8.1 (official 8.1 release).

    Just upgraded to Windows 8.1. Now FSX repeatedly crashes, usually after I click any drop-down menu options. Have tried running it in both Vista and Windows 7 compatibility modes. Here's the error info:

    Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.61637.0, time stamp: 0x46fadb14
    Faulting module name: atiumdag.dll, version: 9.14.10.984, time stamp: 0x522fc960
    Exception code: 0xc0000005
    Fault offset: 0x00024c81
    Faulting process id: 0xd58
    Faulting application start time: 0x01cecdbb18fa9ac8
    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\fsx.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\atiumdag.dll
    Report Id: 97046b5d-39ae-11e3-bea1-d43d7e38f527
    Faulting package full name:
    Faulting package-relative application ID:

    Any help would be appreciated!

    There are many threads about FSX not working with the current ATI drivers and having to roll back to an earlier version. Sounds like this is your problem: 8.1 would have updated the ATI display driver.)

    As an aside, I wonder if anyone has lodged an official bug report with ATI on this?

    Thanks for the response. I'll give it a try. But first a question: The driver I have installed right now is 13.152.1.1000. I can't find any older drivers available for Windows 8.1. Will I be okay reverting to a Windows 8.0 driver?

    Should do. v13.4 is the last known ATI driver that works with FSX so I would try it.

    Hi all,
    Just got back from shopping in South East Queensland, Australia, and happened to catch the news on the car radio.
    A news item that caught my interest was the fact that Windows 8.1 has been WITHDRAWN from sale as it causes too many problems with certain applications!!!!!!!

    Cheers

    Microsoft pulled the RT edition (ie. the one for their ARM based tablets).
