Frequently Asked Questions
One known bug which has reared its ugly head as a result of MS not testing FSX on Windows 7, is that the current version of the Windows7 UIAutomationCore.dll is not fully compatible with FSX. The symptoms are a screen ‘freezing” with the sound continuing. It is the result of too many menu or mouse clicks. This is “fixable” by downloading the one from Download, unzip it and placing in the root folder of FSX.
The Windows 7 version is 6.1.7600.16385, and is resident in the Widows\System32 & SysWOW64 folders. The version needed is 6.0.5840.16386, and is for Vista. It must be simply placed into the
FSX_Root folder and not be registered, as this will change the operating system.
