Using FSX: SE with Windows 10 [Official]
Dovetail Games has been conducting Windows 10 compatibility testing with FSX: Steam Edition for some time, and we are pleased to announce that the latest round of testing has shown no major issues.

Regardless, as this is a new Operating System, some users may experience issues not witnessed by us during our testing.

We will be collecting feedback and will endeavour to provide fixes for major issues that arise, so if you encounter any strange behaviour please let us know in this thread.

Happy flying!

Thank you to everyone who got in touch with us about running FSX: SE with Windows 10. It seems a lot of you are having mixed results ranging from everything working fine to nothing working at all.

Windows 10 is a brand new operating system, and like all new OS, a few problems are likely to pop up. Likewise, many graphic and sound card makers are yet to release driver updates which are compatible with Windows 10. Things will get better, however it will take a little time. We understand that this doesn’t stop the situation being any less frustrating for those of you experiencing unexpected problems.

We have compiled a list of possible fixes for those of you having issues running FSX: Steam Edition on Windows 10. While these fixes may solve the majority of problems, we cannot guarantee they will work for everyone.

Please see either FSXinsider[] or our support website[] for the list of recommended fixes.

Check your power management settings for the USB hubs.

Clean install W-10, Clean Install Steam, Clean Install FSX:SE. I find that the loading status box (after you select aircraft & start the flight) doesn't show up, this is when you are loading textures, it's just a large black screen, then it will finally load. Additionally, when I'm in flight and push ALT for the top menu to appear and go to FILE -> Exit or END Flight, the dialogue box doesn't show up. I have to push enter, which would be a "yes" selection from memory.
