Thread: Fsx Windows 10

  1. Default Fsx Windows 10

    Good afternoon to the group,

    I was wondering if anyone here is running fsx on WIN 10 and knows if there ‘s any systems issues when flying or installing FSX.

  2. Default

    Ran FSX under Windows 7. Upgraded the computer to Windows 10. No issues, runs fine.

  3. Default

    Both my machines run 10 with FSX without issues

    None.

  7. Default VFR Generation X scenery v3 install problems.

    VFR Generation X scenery v3 install problems.
    Hi, I have installed FSX on a new PC with windows 10 and the installation is successful.
    The problem is loading the Generation X scenery version 3.
    The DVD will not load the software.
    I have tried a lot of methods to get it working.
    1. using the old fashioned Dos command xcopy to copy the files to a single folder and run the setup from there. That fails because of Cyclic Redundancy Check, that could be something to do with copy protection?
    2. testing the DVD on another win 10 PC by setting the compatibility to windows 7 service pack 2. the result is that windows says the program will not work (or word to that effect)
    3. running the setup, after starting the win 10 PC in some sort of safe mode, the idea being to stop other systems stopping the DVD from working correctly.
    And yes the disk is clean and other disks work ok (eg the fsx work fine).

    Ideas welcome.

    Microsoft disabled the SafeDisc or SecureRom feature "secdrv.sys" back in 2015. They published a command prompt workaround to enable/disable it here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...hics-component
    You should enable secdrv.sys to install from your disc, then disable it again afterwards.

    Thank you for the fast response.
    My system does not have the secdrv.sys so I am stumped. Some advice say use the win7 one, I do not have access to win7.
    Another site has a dll called SafeDisc.dll. I have downloaded it but am nervous of doing anything with it. If it is a valid dll it would be a good fix. http://www.dlldownloader.com/safedis...fediscdll-File

    I'm in a similar position, having run FSX in Win 7 for many years and now forced to update to Win 10, so your experience is good news.

    Can I ask if you had to re-install FSX after the upgrade or did it simply work as before?

    (I have FSX in its own partition if that makes a difference.)

    Many thanks.
