    Lightbulb Direct X Requirements

    We all know that MSTS requires Direct X8 in order ro run properly and the DX8 installer already comes with the MSTS installation package. Now, do we really need to install DX8 separately in newer operating systems like Windows 7, Windows 10 for MSTS or there is no need to do it as DX8,9,10,11 already come pre-installed with the fore mentioned operating systems?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    MSTS requires DX7.

    I believe DX7 needs to be installed on win7 and later.

    Hi,
    Although MSTS DOES use DirectX 7, the last version which included that was v9.0c
    There are various sites from where it can be downloaded, including :
