Information about "Device Removed" CTD

Hello everyone,

As most of you probably already know, we have been facing an issue with the graphics device causing critical errors.
It happens mostly when manipulating elements in the scenery editor as far as we know.

Starting from version, we are now showing a dialog when this error occurs, saying:

Your graphics device has encountered a problem and Microsoft Flight Simulator will exit.
This may be due to graphics card overclocking, overheating or due to a driver fault.

If you have identified a way to reliably reproduce this error, and are willing to help us diagnose the problem. Please post here and tag @Boris_ and we will follow through.
