    It's not possible to activate by the internet? Why?

    I've done an internet activation within the past week and it worked perfectly.

    With the FSX Gold package (it is not a new version, just the DVDs for FSX Deluxe and FSX Acceleration in the same box) you have to install the two FSX Deluxe DVDs.

    You need to start FSX an Activate FSX with the FSX code in the box.

    You then need to shutdown FSX without making any changes.

    Load and install the Acceleration DVD

    Start FSX and activate with the Acceleration code in the box.

    lost between how it is and how it ought to be


    In addition to Reggie's advice, in your FSX folder is a file named "Phone Activation.xml".

    Open that file with Notepad and locate the country you are in. A phone number will be listed that you can call.

    This is not Microsoft Support, it is an automated activation and you do not talk to a real person, simply punch your activation key into the phone when told to.

    I reinstalled FSX Deluxe on one of my two computers last week, and had no trouble activating it with the key that is written inside the box.

    Don't quote me but I read somewhere that the online activation is still in effect for the U.S. and Canada only. Everywhere else will need to use the phone activation.
