Rather embarrasing for me. A neighbour wanted me to install a flight simulator on his wife's laptop running Windows 7 with DirectX 11. He currently has it installed on Windows XP with DirectX 9.0c. After installing from cd to the Windows 7 laptop, the program refused to launch as it was looking for a DirectX 9.0c .dll I then installed DirectX 9.0c but dxdiag still shows DirectX 11, and needless to say the program still wouldn't launch. I assume the program will not work with anything but DirectX 9.0c but always thought that that there was backwards compatibility ? The following from their website support page:- So, is there no way to get the thing to work on Windows7 ?
