Phil suggested that we update the DirectX program, however, I am not sure if this is for Vista 32. The system requirements do not include Vista..
Any suggestions?

The update Phil is refering to is for winXp(Sp2) DX9c, you can run dxdiag to determine your current DX9c version.

I've just installed this update and note that it doesn't change my DX9c version, but has replaced 19 DX files.

Ran FSX and didn't see any improvement, but my game was already running satisfactorly.

Interesting question, I never thought about that, it seems not. I wonder why.
This seems to be for Vista, read before you use.

Radar Man:
Are they the same or is one definitely for Vista?
There "requirements" lists are different.
IS it the same update for DX

They both say XP only the second says Vista.
I would use (I did last month) the first for XP because of the later date of release.

per Phil's instruction:

3. Delete your fsx.cfg and let FSX generate a new one.

where is the fsx.cfg ?

Guest

SP1 needs a pristine RTM.

what is RTM ?

Start/run/type in "dxdiag" without the quotes.
The window that comes up will give you a host of information.

If you download the latest DirectX and you already have it all it will do is overwrite, no harm no foul.
