Default Orbiter (of ANY version) on Windows 10 in anything greater than 2048x1152? [SOLVED]

Because mine crashes to desktop when I try to run my native 3840x2160, even in windowed mode.
Ideas?

Thanks in advance!

The relevant part of the orbiter.log appears to be:

000000.000: **** Creating simulation session
000000.000: DirectDraw interface OK
000000.000: ERROR: Could not create D3DDevice
000000.000: ERROR: Could not initialize 3D environment

...which doesn't appear to be especially relevant, since it works fine in lower resolutions.

Someone will correct me, but I think DirectX 7 can't display that resolution. So you should try one of the external graphics clients.

Maximum resolution is 2048x1536 with dx7, so you're not wrong. Try the dx9 client!

Worked a treat! Thanks all!
I will say that Google Chrome does NOT like the DX9 files at all. Seems to think the site it's on is in disrepute.
Good thing I have the MS Browser.
