Same as chicagorandy, here in Toronto. Updated late in the afternoon yesterday and it was slow. It also took a couple of 'clicks" until I realized it was updating behind the scene. The Content Manager part was also slow, but in the end, completed and flying!
Did the update yesterday and today - their servers WERE slow, as expected with the planet all trying to update at the same time, but no negative issues were encountered and all is well again in my flight sim world.
What: "OnAir" Workshop
When: Saturday, Dec 9th, 11am PT, 2pm ET, 1900 UTC

DigitalThemePark members, BrianS and CrunchyBob, will be conducting this year's annual workshop covering the "OnAir" Airline Manager. No experience is necessary. If you have ever wanted to give this a try, have not known where to start, and enjoy a calm and relaxed environment with like-minded others ... this is the place for you.
There are plenty of really good videos out there on the topic, but to supplement that material, we are going to have a "live" tutorial and Q&A for folks. Here is a synopsis of the topics covered:
* Introduction; what the heck is this all about
* Starting your own "company"
* Getting a loan and leasing/renting your first aircraft
* Choosing a job
* Flying the job
* Banking some coin
* Skills tree
* Where to go from here
As always, meet up with us on Discord or TeamSpeak (ts3.digitalthemepark.com) for more event details.
Note: We suggest getting connected before the event in order to make sure your headset fully works and is familiar with TeamSpeak3. Download TeamSpeak3 at http://www.teamspeak.com, connect to ts3.digitalthemepark.com, and message Zoolander64 or one of the other [sTAFF] members as we stay connected 24/7 and usually fly or are not far away from our computer. You can also use the FlightSim.Com/DigitalthemePark Discord, but most will be on TeamSpeak.

I moved FSX Gold to Windows 11 several months ago in an attempt to resolve an API.DLL crash problem what started after some Windows 10 updates. Unfortunately, it didn't completely resolve the issue, but some steps I took lessened it.
Not everyone using FSX with Windows 10 or 11 has those issues and a potential remedy has been suggested. I haven't had enough time to test it, so can't say if it's a fix or not.
Anyway, I've had no issues different than updated Windows 10. Yes there are some things Windows 11 does that I don't like, but most I've been able to get around. I would suggest if you choose to update, download RUFUS and use that to upgrade. It allows you to bypass things such as force Windows logon, etc.
I have W 11 on the laptop I am using now and I hate it. Very intrusive. I have spent a great deal of time disabling things that were downright in violation of my privacy. I di check some of the links you recommended a while ago. I am suspicious of W 10 installation software that seems too low priced. Eventually I gave up looking. In any event the same thing is soon to happen to v.10 as happened to v.7 Maybe I'll do a bit more looking at W 10.
I still would like to hear from anyone having moved FSX Gold (or any non-Steam version) to Windows 11.
I'm currently going through my hangar and creating Original versions of everything that I've modded. In the Spartan's case, I discovered that I had made the mods prior to my most recent FS9 installation, which was in 2015. I fly much differently now, I'm finding. Thanks for that!
I know Paul's work and I'm pretty sure that I've got the original downloads on a backup somewhere, but I don't have any currently installed. I've got the old SIMTech Staggerwing, and Lynn & Bill Lyons' Reliant. The Reliant's stock, while the already-fast Staggerwing's been modded (what was I trying to do, break the sound barrier or something?) Thank you for the tip!
