    What do I have to do to use Flight Simulator X on my MacBook Pro (Proxessor 2.33 GHz, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM)?????
    A message appears: "Flight Simulator is not working with your video card. Verify that you have the latest drivers installed installed for your video card. Flight Simulator will now exit.

    Could someone tell me what do I need to do?

    I'd assume you are using Boot Camp to play it?

    I'm using VMware Fusion to run it.

    That's why.

    FSX requires a lot of power to run smoothly - using Virtual PC's isn't the solution. Fusion and Parallel's boast they can run games, but the performance really is rubbish that they shouldn't be bragging about Direct X support at all.

    Use Boot Camp - runs Windows natively rather than virtually, therefore you'll get full performance.

    Runs like crazy under Vista 64 bootcamp partition. X-plane is also awesome with Leopard, but requires a little more experience. Starting with FSX is a good way to go. I have used it for about a year and I still think the missions, though more game-like than X-plane, are fun.
