      Run X-Plane 10 or the installer and it will inform you that a new update is available.

      Winds aloft in the US? Thanks Laminar, but what about the rest of the world? It's not as if the data doesn't exist. How about adding a decent weather engine?

      Given many flight simmers are struggling with FS9 and FSX in Windows 10, is there any confirmation how compatible the latest version of X-Plane is, please, as a possible alternative?

      I run X-Plane on both Windows 10 and OSX and I've never had any problems. X-Plane's structure makes it pretty much self contained which is to its advantage.

      Happy flying!

      Hello,
      I do not have or use X-Plane 10, however MFSX. Ever since the release of Windows 10 I have problems with flying aircraft, having some lag, my screen is smaller, SBuilderX scenery does not appear in the flight sim and REX, very good add-on, somehow doesn't work as it did in Win8.1.
      Well, I cannot answer your question directly, but I think everyone with FSX in Win10 has problems with it.
      Well, good luck and happy flying!
