Flight Simulator X (FSX) Deluxe with recently installed FSX Acceleration - installed on Dual Boot System (XP & Vista). E6600/4 GB PC6400 / evga 8800 GTS / several raid drives
A SINGLE COPY OF FSX is installed on ONE hard drive. FSX is started from the SAME physical copy of the .exe but runs different configuration files depending on the OS.
FSX had been activated on both the XP and Vista system on the same PHYSICAL HARDWARE prior to installing Acceleration .
This method has worked perfectly since I activated FSX last summer. Prior to installing Acceleration I had full FSX functionality when running FSX under either OS.
When I installed FSX Acceleration I did so after booting into VISTA/32. I then activated Acceleration with no problems on 1-20-08 and FSX Acceleration works very well. I am pleased with everything except the shimmers under DX/10 (evga 8800 GTS)
When I try to start FSX/Acceleration after booting into Windows/XP I receive a mesage "unexpected error during activtion Error Code 8-C0000006" and FSX tells me it is aTRial Version which now has limited functionality. FSX (under XP) does not then provide an option for Internet Activation or Telephone Activation - it just starts the TRIAL VERSION for me. I can't find a copy of the phone # to call for help!
The XP system has full Internet access (I am sending this to you from that XP system).
What do I need to do to activate FSX/Acceleation when run on the XP system?
ONE Physical system ONE E6600 ONE BIOS - that meets the EULA requirements
ONE physical copy of FSX/Acceleration on ONE hard drive
I think I should be able to run that single copy of FSX/Acceleration under the control of either XP or VISTA - Am I misunderstanding something here?
