Microsoft Flight Simulator offers a Direct 10 Preview. How can I trace that the DX10 API is actually called, and no longer (only) the DX9 API. Is there a way (logs / tools) to trace this?

I want to find out whether DX10 features are really used.

API Monitor should be able to show you that kind of information.

It does not show internal calls e.g. IDirect3DDevice9::CreateTexture – LifeH2O Sep 14 '15 at 5:10
