I did uninstall and reinstalled as Administrator.  The message on the little screen in the cockpit states:    "EPR Startup Error!!  Unable to start QA757-1."

Did you disable your firewall and anti-virus before installing? If not, I would uninstall, disable the security and reinstall. Sorry without seeing firsthand it makes it difficult to pin it down.

You are enabling the gauges in FSX as they pop-up when loading the sim?

I am sorry,  I don't know what you mean by "enabling the gauges in FSX".  When I select the 757 in the FSX aircraft menu,  It pulls up, but with the blank cockpit screen.

When FSX starts and before the first menu page small windows will pop-up with a security warning which will ask if you want to run a gauge or DLL before proceeding. If you don't allow it the add-on won't run properly. That QW757-1 is an activation error generally related to license. From the 757 FAQ forum section;

  • I see "Startup Error QW757-1" on my EADI and all other displays are black. What can I do?

I never get a pop-up with a security warning asking if I want to run a gauge or DLL before proceeding.

Ok, perhaps the Steam version doesn't. I had it years ago but found it to be problematic for me. I do have FSX still and it does it with any add-on with gauges or DLL. Again, according to to the developer, your error is related to an activation issue. I would repost your issue in the 757 forum due to the fact they don't do support here. Perhaps they will comment on it. You might try post in the Steam forum. Or you might want to open a ticket with Flight1; maybe it's a license issue at their end.

I did everything possible.  I have been trying to troubleshoot this, and many other add-on  issues with FSX Steam for over a month now with zero results on all of them.  I never wanted Steam, but had no choice because FSX would not transfer over from Windows 7 to Windows 10. and my FSX discs would not install on Windows 10.  Even though I have been flight simulating for 11 years,  all these problems have killed my desire to continue with it.  It's most likely over.

I don't care for Steam. It's still a 32 bit sim. I have P3d v4 and 5. I have X-Plane 11. I have XP12 but haven't had time to put a dedicated drive in my computer for it, but it looks good. I have MSFS2020. Visuals are fantastic but if you look at Avsim the sim has as many issues as FSX did.

X-Plane11 has given me the least amount of headaches. Yes the visuals aren't near MSFS but overall the sim is pretty good. I probably use it 90 percent of the time. Plenty of VA's support it, Vatsim supports it. Navigraph supports it. When I upgraded my computer I copied the entire XP folder and pasted it to a new hard drive. Worked perfectly.

If you like the 757  the Vmax is tops. I just picked it up during Black Friday, no regrets. Check out the X_Plane forum here https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?act=idx.

This is where I buy a lot of my add-ons; https://store.x-plane.org/

You can also demo the X_Plane  sim; https://www.x-plane.com/

My advise. Invest is a 64 bit sim. Yes, old habits die hard. You won't look back.
