Getting FMS Flight Simulator Working with Windows Vista

After installing and trying to run FMS, users are generally presented with an error box stating: “D3DRM.DLL cannot be loaded”. Basically, this is telling you that Windows is missing a library, and needs it to display the graphics. Fortunately, there is a library available that fixes this problem.

1. First, reinstall the FMS flight simulator program. A self extracting installation wizard is available on the page, at Download the latest version, titled Version 2.0 Beta 7 (Windows 9x/ME/2000) – recommended Version
2. After installing, you will need to install the missing library D3DRM.DLL in your Windows Vista System32 folder. Please be careful to follow these instructions exactly, you could damage your system by accidentally deleting files in this folder. Here is the installation procedure, be sure to follow it exactly.

1. D3DRM.DLLGo to and enter the code that you see at the bottom of the page.
2. Press the download button, and save the ZIP file to your computer.
3. Extract the file D3DRM.DLL
4. Move the file D3DRM.DLL into the folder C:\Windows\System32
3. Restart the FMS application, and it should now work perfectly.
