Hello all, desperately need some help on this one.

I'm currently using Flight Simulator X (Service Pack 2, the original, non-Steam Edition) with DirectX 10. I've had FSX/DX10 working very stable while using ReShade 1.1.0/SweetFX 2.0.7 using the d3d9.dll module. However, an expansion I'm using requires the dxgi.dll module. So, I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling various versions of ReShade/SweetFX with ReShade32.dll/dxgi.dll manually and automatically. However, while installing dxgi.dll instead of d3d9.dll, everything loads and looks fine, but I get an instant CTD (API.dll - which comes in the base Flight Simulator X directory) when clicking "show desktop" on the task bar on Windows 7 (or pushing Window+D). Clicking minimize on the FSX top window bar seems to work fine. I'm only able to induce the CTD when clicking "show desktop."

This is a real head-scratcher for me, so any help would be most appreciated. I'm certainly not an expert with ReShade/SweetFX.
