The D3DRM.DLL file is the Dynamic Link Library for Direct3D Retained Mode, an older DirectX display technology that was not included with Windows Vista. Direct3D is used to render three dimensional images in applications where performance is important; the most common examples of which are games, CAD drawing programs and graphics editing software.
The error message displayed varies by program, but some some of the more common ones are:

  • "Failed to initialize Direct3D with current settings"
  • "Cannot find the file d3drm.dll"
  • "This application has failed to start because d3drm.dll was not found"
  • "D3DRM.dll is not loaded"
This error is usually a sign that the d3drm.dll file has been deleted, corrupted or altered in such a way that makes it unusable to your program.
To fix errors like this:
1. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. It will fix the d3drm.dll error.
2. Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again.
3. Update the drivers for your video card.
4. If it doesn,t work copy d3drm.dll file to the system folder.
Hope it helps.

Hello Larry,
Download the above file from dll site, unzip it and install it. If the problem still persists then use a system utility software like RegInOut to fix corrupt registry & windows files.
Hope it works for you.

Can't load the E sky FMS simulator on VISTA


To download the FMS flight sim go to this site http://n.ethz.ch/student/mmoeller/fms/index_e.html With windowsXP and earlier it will work fine.
BUT If you use vista you will need to also add this file to your computer "d3drm.dll" go to http://www.driverskit.net/dll/get/494.html to download the file. Then put it in your C:\Windows\System32 folder on your computer. It wont work until you do this. Good luck.

"d3drm.dll" can be downloaded from the microsoft site or go to http://www.driverskit.net/dll/get/494.html to download the file. Then put it in your C:\Windows\System32 folder on your computer. It wont work until you do this. Good luck.

Can not play flight simulator says d3drm.dll is not in vista


Is your game old? d3drm.dll is related to Direct 3D retained mode which is part of Microsoft's DirectX API, Direct 3D is very old (1997) and has been removed from Window's Vista, therefor creating the incompatability.

d3drm.dll as I have come to understand, was implemented in Windows XP, if you have a copy or know someone who uses XP you could try looking through :windowssystem32 folder for the d3drm.dll file and copying it to your own system32 directory.
If you don't have access to XP at all you could also try this link
http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/D/d3drm.dll/5.1.2600.0/download.html
You may wish to take precautions before downloading as downloads from an unknown site can always be risky.

If you have a copy of Windows XP, but you don't feel like messing with Vista's system directory or copying it didn't work, you could always try virtualization. Running a virtual copy of Windows XP along side Vista would allow you to run older games while running Vista.

Virtual Box is free and in my opion, easy to use virtualization software, you could try that or you could try vmware but that costs money.
