Some users running Windows Windows 7 or Vista are experiencing problems with the FMS program. When the program is launched the following error message is displayed "D3DRM.DLL is not loaded"

D3DRM.DLL is Direct3D Retained Mode, an older graphics display technology from 1997 that was removed from Windows 7 and Vista.

The good news is that it's a pretty simple procedure to get it put back into Vista. The CD that we included has the newest stable version of FMS (Version 2.0 Beta 7). So just install that from the installer CD as you normally would following the on screen instructions. If you have already installed it, read on - there is no need to re-install it.

You can the D3DRM.DLL from this link:;jsessionid=pvQhMmWKCyv7GXG4vTYLYlWBTxRHQYlxZp8bXQ1rhBnTNMRTYpswB4kTQbsW4VSqygvyKjncmPD6T4S4NJK2F0X7Xp6PnV2VKryTVC1kdTxYHL3djKJknnJWnMDhqQh7!-733962811

Now you will need to download the D3DRM.DLL. Open the Zip file and then copy D3DRM.DLL to the FMS directory. By default your FMS directory will be located C:\Program Files\FMS\

The easiest way to do this is to double click on the file, it will open a small window with d3drm.dll in it. This is the file we have to copy - just keep this window open for now.

Next click "start", then "run". Now type "c:" without the quotes, and press enter. It will open the Explorer application, in the right pane you should see Program Files, Double click on it. Then you should see FMS, Double click on it. This is where you need to copy d3drm.dll

To copy the file simply drag and drop the d3drm.dll from the window we left open before to the FMS directory, be sure to drop it in a empty white area and not on another folder inside that window.

That's it, FMS should run perfectly now.

I got a remote controll helicopter and when I installed the software for the Flying Model Simulator, it brings up an error saying that D3DRM.DLL IS NOT LOADED.. What can I do to run this program so I can...

The D3DRM.DLL file is the Dynamic Link Library for Direct3D Retained Mode, an older DirectX display technology that was not included with Windows Vista. Direct3D is used to render three dimensional images in applications where performance is important; the most common examples of which are games, CAD drawing programs and graphics editing software.
The error message displayed varies by program, but some some of the more common ones are:
  • "Failed to initialize Direct3D with current settings"
  • "Cannot find the file d3drm.dll"
  • "This application has failed to start because d3drm.dll was not found"
  • "D3DRM.dll is not loaded"
This error is usually a sign that the d3drm.dll file has been deleted, corrupted or altered in such a way that makes it unusable to your program.
To fix errors like this:
1. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. It will fix the d3drm.dll error.
2. Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again.
3. Update the drivers for your video card.
4. If it doesn,t work copy d3drm.dll file to the system folder.
Hope it helps.
