    FSX start up error; I don't know how to solve it.

    I finally got my new build PC to work and moved everything over to it. However, when I try to run FSX I get the following error;

    The application has failed to start because it's side by side configuration is incorrect. Please
    see the application event log or use the command line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.
    I've done some research on this and made sure I installed C++ (X86) and C++(64bit) for Windows into my windows 10, but that doesn't fix the problem. I've tried running the sxstrace.exe program, but the dos screen just flashes for a half of a second and disappears. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? I'm not sure I can do a disk fix, as I was in the beta and the only disks I have are from the beta.

    Sundog,

    It might be worth trying to install them again: -

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/Down....aspx?id=21254

    (This is version 6.0.2900.2180 for the 64 bit exe)

    Also, do you have any addons installed that rely on the legacy simconnects?

    If you are using the Steam version, then you need to install them.

    They are located in the following folders in the FSX SE main directory: -

    FSX-RTM
    FSX-SP1
    FSX-XPACK

    Cheers

    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    This is just FSX with Acceleration. I'll try the C++ packs again. Thanks.

    You have to run it via a command prompt. Type cmd into the Windows search box and then run sxstrace.exe within the subsequent window.

    I was able to run the trace, but I don't know what it means. I'm working on figuring it out, but if anyone knows just be looking at it, that would be appreciated. For reference, my FSX is installed on my J Drive.

    I believe this is a sequel database dll, MSVC80(MFC?) 8.0.50608.0

    I don't know if I have to find that exact file or if I can just update the sequel database; I'm researching it.
