Thread: Official FSX Download

  1. Default Official FSX Download

    Does anyone know if it is possible to buy a downloadable copy of FSX? Had issues with the DVD recently not activating (luckily the person who sold it to me was happy to give me a full refund), so would prefer to try an official downloadable copy but couldn't find anything on the Microsoft website. I really want to get this working as I bought the PMDG 747 to study for work, but this is of no use to me if I can't get the stupid game to work...

    Only available on disc. Read this then go back and get the disks from your friend.

    The discs are available at most electronic stores for a reasonable price, e.g. Best Buy or Amazon on line. Make sure you get one that includes Acceleration, and/or the service packs. Check on line suppliers. I would stay away from used discs.

    Yes, you can indeed officially download a FSX copy from Microsoft's marketplace.

    Here is the link:

    Be aware this installation technique uses DRM protection which some people don't like.

    Also, I have a hard time imagining how long it would take to download 2 CDs worth of compressed data plus the Acceleration upgrade.

    I got all my disks from Amazon. I realize Australia might have problems getting disks this old.

    I won't be getting the discs back as I tried doing everything on Microsoft answers without success. Typical, Microsoft putting the download in the Xbox area. I'm starting to hate the company, might go Mac next time.

    That download only works inside the US.
