Acceleration Activation Issues

Recommended Posts

Couldn't activate FSX Acceleration after loading FSX ok from a fresh reinstall of windows7.   Read some of your posts on the issue of activation and then went back to uncheck the compatible mode in the FSX exe icon then the Acceleration activation work fine.  I worked with Microsoft on the activation issue and they were no help.  I will certainly give attention to the compatibility mode when dealing with activation error issues. 


Thanks to all who share your experences. I won't leave home without you.

October, 2007.  Welcome to the zombie apocalypse.  :)


People are diggin' 'em up left and right, and loosing them on the unsuspecting populace.  Of course, the real winner is the guy who resurrected a thread from 2003, so maybe it's more difficult than I thought.


Is there no dialog screen that says, "Hey, this thread is really old... you'd be better off starting a new topic"?


PL:  glad it was able to solve your problem, in any case.

NOTE: I split the OP's post from that ancient post. Glad the OP was able to find a solution to his problem. This might help others.
