  • Don't count on Microsoft to provide an answer! I googled it and found this solution here. There is a way to generate a txt or XML automatically when running the DxDiag command. For xml file type this dxdiag /x [File name]_dxdiag. In my case I typed in dxdiag /x henry_dxdiag

  • +1 same issue here and I can't apply to the Flight Simulator close-alpha testing without a dxdiag.xml

  • For me this issue got fixed by removing all usb devices from my pc and running dxdiag after that.

  • I have the same problem.  Needed to output xml for the same reason as Lovi07 but unlike him/her i had only unplugged my usb extension cable coming all the way from the back of my PC to top of my desk and also the Unitek docking station type-c cable which seemed to be enough to eliminate the problem.

    I think unplugging everything does not serve the purpose of demanding the file in the first place by MS anyway for the testers.

  • Hey - I saved as txt and then went online to convert it by googling txt to xml converter.

    Flight Simulator site then accepted.

    Changing the extension in Windows to xml will not work.

    Hope this works for you.
