Thread: Activation problem...response from Microsoft

  1. Default Activation problem...response from Microsoft


    I installed FSX last Tuesday and activated without any problem. Sunday I set a new restore point on my computer running Windows XP. Since then my FSX starts stating that there is an "activation problem", loads the program without telling you how to re-activate and closes FSX after 30 minutes. I never see a window which tells what to do (call or email to give my product number). This is the response from Microsoft:
    you can telephone an Activation Center and activate the product with the help of a customer service representative. Use the telephone number that is provided on your Activation Wizard screen to contact the Microsoft Activation Center.

    Am I speaking a foreign dialect here?? How can I get this phone number if I cannot access the Activation Wizard...
    I am ready to reinstall but of course nobody wants to give a straight answer to: How many reinstalls are allowed???

    Thanks for listening

    According to the software license you can reinstall on your original computer as often as you like. But you can only transfer to a different computer once.

    In real life they may not be so restrictive, but really you are at Microsoft's whim and mercy.

    THanks Ron

    I was so bothered by the response (or lack thereof) from Microsoft that I re installed FSX. Everything is fine. Thanks MS for messing up my first install...
