Hi there...

I have installed X Plane 11 (Rev. 11.33b1) from DVD and my system is based upon an Intel Core i7-5930K CPU running under Windows 8.1 (x64 of course). My graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN (driver from NVIDIA rev. 425.31) und I use the Vive Pro Headset connected to SteamVR (Rev. beta 1.3.23). Everything related to the VR experience works fine, as long as I use the Aerofly FS2 Flight Sim. But if it comes to X Plane I receive the obviously well known "VR Hardware Activation grayed out"-problem.

Do you have any suggestions how I get VR to run for X Plane?

I like to mention, that I have already tried to reinstall any components/drivers/apps that are related to VR - no improvements so far...

Thanks in advance...

Need to know which version of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN you have because some of the early versions will not work.

Thanks for your answer...

I can't get the exact version, since this graphics card is from ASUS and there is no more information available. But I figured out, that this card is quite a few years old. I got it somewhere in 2014(!!!).

Well, I decided to purchase a new graphics card. I prefer to use NVIDIA products. Which modell would you recommend?
