    FSX crashes when dragging windows to side screens.

    I recently upgraded my mb/cpu (see system specs) and now when I open a new window in FSX, undock and drag it to one of my side monitors I get this error message:

    "Microsoft Flight Simulator has stopped working.
    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

    Before I upgraded the side views were working fine but of course I had to reinstall Windows7 and all my FSX programs, scenery, etc. Can anyone tell me what could be causing the problem. I really miss my sideviews.

    Re: FSX crashes when dragging windows to side screens.

    Well, I guess I figured out my own problem. I unchecked "Preview DirectX 10 in FSX settings and now I can drag the windows to another screen without any problem.
