    Can't activate FSX

    Microsoft not accepting product key for FSX after I purchased new gaming computer and installed software. It's the only one of my PC's running with this software as the others are non-operational at this point. Phoned Microsoft and they can't help as the product is "absolute". What now? Anybody have any ideas?

    FSX activation error

    Hello! I am an Independent Advisor, I would love to help you out!

    The first steps I would try are:

    1) Locate the entry below by regedit.exe



    2) Look at UpperFilters key. It should contain “PartMgr” only.

    3) If the key shows something more, mark down what they are

    before editing the key to read “PartMgr” only.

    4) Start FSX, the activation dialog should be prompted.

    5) Proceed and let FSX start, then exit FSX.

    6) Edit back the registry key with the previous content. (This step may not be required.)

    This info was found here:

    If that does not work then I would suggest to restart your computer and try again. If that does not work then I would suggest to uninstall and re-install completely.

    Not active fsx

    In my April 24th reply, I had asked you if you were able to take a flight in spite of having the Activation error come up? So could you attempt any flight to make sure that you have installed FSX properly? And try to fly for more than 30 minutes (you can
    use time compression if you are short of time).

    If your FSX runs properly, I can give you a possible suggestion for the Activation error. But if FSX doesn't run, then you need to go through certain steps before you can do a re-install of it.

    installed FSX, entered key, activated online, answer is your product is activated, but running the game, its only for 30 minutes, so no activation.

    any suggestions are welcome,
