Thread: FSX Activation

  1. #1

    Default FSX Activation

    Heu Guys!
    Opened FSX this morning and out of nowhere, i was asked to activate now or later.
    Has this happened to anyone here? I have had FSX on my computer since 2010, i no longer have the product key.

    Why is this happening and, how can i get it to stop?

    Have you tried right-clicking and choose "Run as Administrator" to see if that helps?

    No flight Sim installed until I get a new computer.

    Are you in a 30 minute demo mode or is everything normal except for the activation issue? Acceleration installed?

    Cool

    Yes I'm in a 30 min demo mode and, no acceleration is not installed.
    Tried to fly today and ran out of time, the sim asked for a product key which comes back as wrong key.
    I no longer have the original key that i purchased FSX with years ago so, i guess my sim is offically gone.
    Need to get new copy of FSX and acceleration, however i no longer trust amazon or e-bay.

    Any ideas where i can get those two sims?

    Your only real option these days is Steam. FSX Steam Edition is largely the same as FSX Deluxe plus Acceleration. It has a few minor bug fixes and a replacement for the Gamespy multiplayer, but lacks the complete SDK.

    Steam is probably your best bet. I believe Steam will be having a sale at the end of the month, so maybe catch it on sale.
