Re Loading a Flight SIM Prog

  Furkin 16:06 07 Mar 2008

Hi Guys & gals,

I treated myself to MS-Flight-Sim X for my birthday. After loading it (a job in its-self) I decided that it isn’t for me.

I’ve decided to sell it,,,,,, but as it loads with a 'Product Key' am unsure whether it will load onto someone elses computer after being previously loaded on mine.

I obviously don’t want to sell it if it won’t work !

I am pretty sure it would work ok, with the product key of course. You would however, be obliged to complete remove FSX from your PC.

That's not a problem TT,
I am actually training to fly & one of the instructors said that this might be a good idea.
It takes about 40 mins to load (it is pretty comprehensive).

I also got the Saitek st290 pro (joystick) but after trying (playing) twice, I decided that it dosn't help (me anyway).

Not being into Sims,,,,, decided to sell both.

I just woundn't want to pass the prog on if it didn't work.

Thanks again

I have FSX Deluxe, I like it, though I am only in it for fun :-) I use the Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2, which I think is the recommended stick for this game.

well done TT,,,,, I thought that 'I' was getting on a bit,,,, at 59,,, for computing,,,, & flying ?!

I fly from Lands End,,,,, prob one of the smallest fields in the U.K,,,, & I was amazed that it is actually featured on these sims !

Am not sure why I beleived that a Sim would actually help - but quite a few fliers use them,,, tho' like you, most of them seem to use them for fun. Still, it was worth a try.

thanks for the info. Will list it on 'an' auction site,,,, along with the ST290.

(am about to post another query re inputting info into 'details' column of folders that you can prob help with,,,, will start another post)

all the best for now
