Please provide further details on the crash - a screenshot would be preferable.

Also - can you tell us if you have other add-ons that interfere with Shaders or add DirectX DLLs in the FSX folder?

Q: I am getting the "Flight Simulator has detected a problem with a third-party software program (add-on): Name FSLSpotlights.dll or other .dlls): Do you want to run this software (not recommended)? Then, even if I click Yes, Flight Simulator crashes.

A: This is because something caused an error in a previous load of Flight Simulator and Windows decided to intervene and permanently mark that DLL as unsafe. You need to run "regedit", find the registry setting for

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers

and in there, edit the entry for fsx.exe to REMOVE any mentions of

Data = $IgnoreFreeLibrary<FSLSounds.dll>

(or the other FSL dlls accordingly).

Then, restart FSX - you'll get the error message once again, but click Yes, and the application will work correctly this time.

Also, make sure your FSX is running as Administrator.



This helps ;-)
