[SOLVED] FSX.cfg tweak causes crash to desktop

This tool www.venetubo.com/fsx.html can optimize Flight Simulator X very well through editing FSX.cfg and guarantee constant 60 FPS. However it causes incompatibility problems with ReShade, causing the game to crash to desktop whenever ReShade tries to inject itself.
All it does is change/add configurations within "%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX\FSX.cfg", such as correct Vsync, better texture settings, CPU&GPU optimizations etc.
Any idea how to fix it?

Could you do a before and after comparison of what has changed?

forgiveness to put me but what I see in your FSX CFG are repeated many times the video card so that injection can lead this problem, make a copy of your FSX cfg and remove this using the simulator to generate a new one and clean and make the change that venetubo

Sorry for the delay, it seems even after deleting the modified FSX.cfg (thus generating a fresh one) I'm getting a CTD. I wonder if this is due to updating the ReShade preset to a newer version? I'll report more as I find out.
UPDATE: Apparently using the default settings causes a crash, with a backup of my previous settings such crash does not seem to occur (even with a newer, clean ReShade version), I'm going to compare settings. Interestingly enough, d3d10 preview was enabled in the old settings but not in the default ones though ReShade is still injected with d3d9.dll in both cases. So the problem probably isn't related to the optimization tool but rather some configuration that needs to be set specifically otherwise it crashes upon injection. I'll investigate further and perhaps this will be worth adding to FSX's compatibility list description.

Sorry for double posting, but I finally figured it out. Apparently disabling d3d10 preview causes the crash to desktop. Whether this is the only thing that causes it or it's a combination of factors is beyond me, in general to be safe I'd recommend enabling it to avoid the crash with ReShade until gets fixed.

first of all I apologize if my English is not good because I use a translator. I am using FSX Reshade in both DX10 and DX9 without any problem even with depth buffer, I have just installed the DX10SceneryFixer and the REX and other aircraft and sets everything working perfectly
