Thread: FSX on Win 10 after APRIL 2018 update

  1. #1

    Default FSX on Win 10 after APRIL 2018 update

    Hello,


    FSX had been working fine on my Win 10 PC until the APRIL 2018 Windows 10 update was installed.

    Complete removal and re installation did not resolve the problem.


    Can anyone help on this ?

    Thanks

    Steve

    Hi fsSteve,

    API.dll refers to the Application Program Interface, in this case the API for FSX.
    It looks like Win10 update installed a WDM graphics driver in the latest round overriding a functioning Nvidia Whql driver. Head over to Nvidia and download the latest driver, or the driver version you had before that was working, install fresh and see if your Sim works. Unfortunatley rolling back graphics drivers can be a little hit and miss, they tend to leave remnants behind causing no end of headaches. A fresh WHQL driver for your GT740M/Win10Home/64 from Nvidia will most likely fix the problem.

    Thanks jethrom.

    I discovered that the program runs using Intel Graphics but not the NVIDIA, so I downloaded and installed the latest NVIDIA drivers from Control Panel and rebooted, but the program still fails using the NVIDIA card.

    I may just stick with the Intel graphics, at least the program runs using that.

    Steve.

    Letting FSX install into the default path, C:\Program Files (x86), is bad practice, almost always results in problems because of the automatic security imposed on those directories. Though probably not the source of your specific problem, you really should consider reinstalling to c:\fsx or some other non "Program Files" directory.

    Read my Sig. I have read many people having issues with that April update.

    You should not let M$ touch your GPU drivers or anything else as well. https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/d...-on-windows-10

    Hi Steve,

    Check your fsx.cfg file and see if you have any [Display.Devic.<device name>.0] entries. They look like these examples from my .cfg file

    [DISPLAY.Device.ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650.0]
    Mode=1920x1080x32

    [DISPLAY.Device.Intel(R) HD Graphics.0]
    Mode=1920x1080x32

    Note that the Mode= entry should be the same - I have seen cases where API.ddl errors (and other graphic .dll errors) have been caused by a Mode= mis-match.
    Regards

    Brian

    Brian,

    Shouldn't there only be one entry? Like, only the Radeon one?

    In that case, try this: Backup your current fsx.cfg to the desktop and delete the current one. Once you successfully launch FSX the Sim will rebuild a new FSX.cfg.

    Once you get this sorted, there is a sticky here on how to optimize the fsx.cfg. You should look at it.

    EDIT-

    Never mind, you have the following:


    [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M.1]
    Mode=1280x800x32
    AntiAlias=1
    [DISPLAY.Device.Intel(R) HD Graphics Family.0]
    Mode=1280x800x32

    Is this a laptop?

    Try right clicking FSX and running with the NVIDIA GPU.

    If this is not a laptop, I'd go into BIOS and disable onboard video. Only allow your dedicated GPU to run.

    And like I mentioned, you should follow the steps in that link I gave and not let M$ update your drivers.


    EDIT 2-

    You have three entries.


    [DISPLAY.Device.Intel(R) HD Graphics Family.1]
    Mode=1280x800x32


    And the GPU indicates this is indeed a laptop.

    Here's another post with the same api.dll crash: https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showt...ing-to-desktop

    Here's another related thread: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/5...fix-dll-crash/

    I did see that you have half of your RAM being used which shouldn't be the case. Launch Task Manager and post what is using all that RAM.

    Do make sure FSX is installed to C:\ drive only.

    Searching for the model laptop you have shows no results for ET2321I. What is the exact Asus model laptop you have?
