Some of the aircraft I install work fine. some of them show up unfinished grey. I read the Inst. Txt. and put everything where it says it wants to go.
I have just used the installer program you shared. No love. Anyway some work some don't.
Go to the graphics tab in the Sim and uncheck the box that says DX10.
The color will show.
So Simple! You a god!!!
8 month blaming it on windows 8
👏 Glad it all worked out well.
Have fun flying now.
I have the same problem however, if I de-select the DirectX10 box then I get 'fatal error' on starting FSX (in Windows 10). Any ideas?
Check this thread out and see if it helps.
FSX uninstalls just like 2004.
