Default DirectX runtimes

I was never able to get D3D9 running on my 2007, Win XP machine. I passed it off as being obsolete. Orbiter 2010 ran great. I finally upgraded to a shiny new Win 10 machine with Orbiter 2016. And I still can't get D3D9 to work. I get a DOS window saying no client found. Yes, the module is activated in Orbiter_ng.

Researching in the forum, I come across references to DirectX runtimes. Could it be that I've jumped right over DirectX 9? Would installing those V9 runtimes mess up my DirectX 12?

No, installing DX9 does nothing to your DX12 (or DX11) installation.

You'll get the "June 2010" Version here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...s.aspx?id=8109

Thanks! I'll give it a shot. I just tried Orbiter 2010 with an older D3D9 release, and the same thing happens. After enabling the D3D9 module, There is no "Video" tab, so I can't do any advanced setup. Orbiter cannot open the client when I try to launch.

That worked! Thanks for the link! I think I'll try it with an Orbiter 2910 installation so I can run my favorite ships that aren't updated to 2016 yet.

Nice, but keep in mind that there are (at least) two specific versions of D3D9Client:
The ones for Orbiter 2016, the ones for Orbiter 2010(-P1)
...and some that should be used for Orbiter BETAs (or one of it's latest commits).

Hopefully I did not add any further confusion
