Default Need some help with D3D Error

Hi Guys, I'm New to orbiter, I can launch the game to set all options and paramaters, however when trying to lanch the actual game orbiter, I Keep recieving "Initialising 3D Environment using a hardware device failed. Try again with a software device" I have set it to every possible resolution (4K Native) 2nd screen (HD Native). I have also ensured Nvidia Driver 418.81 Installed, Gpu meet recomended specs, downloaded and updated direct X 9. any advice?

It's a resolution issue. Inline orbiter client does not support resolution too large (can't remember how much now).
Try to set up your resolution to something around 1920x1080 and it should work.

I strongly suggest anyway to use the D3D9 graphic client: it is really amazing, much much faster and will allow basically any resolution (mine is 3440x1440)
