    Hello everybody.

    Well, really dont know what To do now?

    Have done everything all the guys on the Forums who have been helping have suggested since Purchasing this New PC Specialist Tornado R5XT wiyh an AND Ryzon 16160 Graphics Card on 30th September 2020. But still getting Activation Error Message.

    After Mr Zippy's last reply which I read this Morning, which unfortunately didn't work, I decided to start Completely afresh.

    Rightly or Wrongly being there is nothing on this Computer at the moment apart from Microsoft Flight Simlator X and the additions to run it I decided to replace the Windows 10 on this Computer with my own Windows 10 which I purchased and was on my previous Packard bell Computer. and FSX worked fine.

    But having Installed new Windows 10 and Microsoft Flight Simulator X still the have same activation problem.

    Still having an Issue with this which is where I think the Problem but whoever sent it to me hasn't come back to me.

    Press Windows key + R to invoke the Run dialog.
    In the Run dialog box, type services.msc and hit Enter to open Services.
    In the Services window, scroll and locate the Windows Installer service.
    Double-click on the entry to open its properties window.
    In the properties window, on the General tab, click the dropdown on
    Startup type and select Automatic.
    Next, move to the Service status section.Click the Start button in order to enable the service.
    To disable this specific service, click the Stop button.
    Click Apply > OK to save changes.
    When I get to the Startup type and select Automatic line, I cannot change it because It's set on Manual and greyed out so am unable to change It to Automatic.

    Does anybody have an Idea what to do with this Please? am now getting really desperate.

    Also have the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 but dreading trying it out at the moment.

    Many thanks

    Paul, if I were you, I would just spend the $25 (or less if it is on sale, but seems it is not this weekend) on FSX: Steam Edition. You will not have to worry about activation errors and 30-minute demo time limits. It will be money well spent as it looks like you have been struggling with this issue for a month now and I can tell you really want to use FSX again. I am not happy with the current state of the new MSFS and continue to use FSX:SE as I wait for MSFS to eventually mature.

    FSX Steam Edition is basically the same as FSX Gold, so no need to install Acceleration at all.

    To find where Steam has installed the sim you can go into your Library in the Steam client. Right click on the FSX entry and go to Properties, then the Local Files tab, and click Browse Local Files.

    OK Guys, Have Downloaded FSX Steam Edition but nowhere to be found.

    Not In Program Files or Program Files (x86) where it shouldn't be anyway?

    But, Also not in C:\FSX where it should be!!!

    However, Programme will load and run From the FSX Icon on the Desktop

    Did not get an option as to where it should be installed to when Downloading?

    Not Available to open to Add my own Aircraft or anything else.

    Regards

    Did you read my post above? Steam installs games into its own directory structure. Follow the steps I provided above and it will take you to the install location.

    The steps in my post made before your question about where Steam installed the sim.
