Gifting FSX

Recommended Posts

I have a copy of FSX Standard edition that is no longer used since I upgraded to the Deluxe. If I give the standard edition away will the receiver be able to activate it?

Most probably yes, it shouldn't be a problem. I've installed my copy of FSX deluxe several times on three different PCs (not at the same time, obviously) without any activation problems.

Yes they will just have to go through activation, and worst case if you've reinstalled too many times they would have to go through phone activation which is what I have to do now after so many installs due to upgrading my systems and OS since I bought FSX... I'm actually thinking about buying another copy of FSX to avoid the phone activation every time I reinstall.

I must have installed AND activated FSX at least 20 times or so (I lost count: it might as well be 30 or 40 times) on at least 3 different computers and on at least 5 different 0S/hardware setups of those 3 computers (and at least once I had it installed on two computers at the same time because I was moving from one computer to another) and I have never ever had to phone MS. Maybe it depends on where you live...? I don't know, but I won't buy an extra copy of FSX for this. :(

Thank you for your replies. I've only installed and activated once so I should be ok.
