    And why pay an extra $25 for something you already own. If something goes wrong they can't offer any support..
    Yup, thanks for checking, I tried running it without Compatability Mode, no luck, then under Win 8 and Win 7, also with no luck.

    Ironicly, I was going to break down and buy FSX Steam this morning and discovered I had purchased it a couple years ago at a discount, guess I'll have to download and install it off my phone hotspot and give that a try.

    It's usually Steam wanting to verify your email address or something. Then they give you a code that you must enter to be able to log back in then you can access off-line.

    Also seen when a game is updated, they want you to log in the first time.

    Then of course there are games like 'Race Room Racing Experience' that are internet only mandating being on-line.
