You have to download the august version of DX9. had the same prob in other games. It comes in a .ZIP/RAR file and you unpack it and install the exe file that comes after the unpack. After that it should work splended =)

It has DINPUT.dll error


Dinput.dll errors usually appear when a game or other software program is started. and are caused in one way or another by an issue with Microsoft DirectX.

The dinput.dll file is one of many files contained in the DirectX software collection. Since DirectX is utilized by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs, dinput.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.

Solutions:

1. For Dinput.dll not found. Reinstalling Direct X should fix this.

2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the dinput.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX 11, DirectX 10, and DirectX 9 files, but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the dinput.dll error you're receiving, look for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something might have happened to the program files that work with dinput.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

Restore the dinput.dll file from the latest DirectX software package. If the above troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your dinput.dll error, try extracting the dinput.dll individually from the DirectX downloadable package.

4. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.

Here is a good link for DirectX info on how to download and install:

BLACK BOXES WHEN USING SMOKE AND WATER EFFECTS IN FSX


Could be that your video card cannot handle those effects. What is your computers set up? What kind of card do you have specifically? It could be that you are using out dated drivers or don't have the lastest version of DirectX installed.

Unable to find fsx in windows registery unable to complete flight deck5 setup


Have you searched the registry using CTRL + F and typing in FSX or Microsoft? This should find all entries. If not, then FSX is not installed properly and you need to uninstall FSX, reboot and re-install. Good luck with it.

I successfully installed fsx but cant find the file to play it


Okay. Go to the FSX directory - C:\Program files\Microsoft games\FSX and locate the FSX.exe icon. Using the nouse, right-click the icon, and keep the right mouse button down and drag the icon to the desktop, then release it and choose "create shortcut here" from the fly-out menu. That's it. Then it will add an icon on your desktop which you can use aas normal to play it. Enjoy

I bought a fsx and fsx acceleration but i want to do the missions but i cant i click on go to breifing and it it freezes then says run time error or something like that i have all the computer requirments


A run-time error is a Visual Basic error. Check that you have the newest version installed. Once done this will cure it. You also need to make sure that you have .NET framework installed from Microsoft.

I dont know how to fly in microsoft flight simulator x demo and there is no tutorial in the demo


Yes the full version includes a learning center and has some instructor missions that teach you how to fly gradually. It is well worth grabbing the full version. Look for Flight Simulator X Gold Edition. This includes the FSX program plus the Acceleration Expansion pack bundled together. This bundle has all the latest fixes and patches deployed by Microsoft incorporated into it as well.

For more detailed flight lessons, grab a flight simulator magazine subscription. One like Computer Pilot Magazine is dedicated to Flight Simulator X and other sims and regularly features detailed flight lessons etc.

Direct x problem for fsx


Get rid of the pirated version, which is completely illegal and buy a proper copy and you will have no problem. If you try to register this software or update it, Microsoft will see it is a pirated copy and probably contact you with a law suit.

I'm not sure what updates and patches to get for my Microsoft FSX Deluxe and Acceleration Flight Simulator games. And can I download something called dx9 or FS9 or is that for more advanced versions of my...


If you have FSX Deluxe with the Acceleration expansion, you already have all the latest patches installed and do not require anything further. FS9 is an older version of the game, NOT a newer one.

Just go with what you have now, it is all updated to the latest.
