Do I need to repurchase to use my licenses in FSX:SE?

Recommended Posts

I don't really know where to start, so I'll just say that I had a crash of my FSX Deluxe (with SP2) installation a few days ago--so bad was the crash, that the FSX uninstall via the control panel was suspect.

 

I've had FSX installed in the default directory on this rig for several years and have been nursing it along. In some respects it was a merciful crash because it finally forced me to re-evaluate my sim platform.

 

I decided to take the leap and purchased FSX: SE and it installed quite well; in spite of leaving the FSX installation in its default. I did fight some with the controls (Windows 8.1--need I say more???), but having worked through them initially in the FSX install, it wasn't too bad.

 

Now then, I've only recently (within the past two months or so) purchased and installed the PMDG products for FSX. When it came time, I installed the FSX versions into my FSX:SE and they seem to be running well enough.

 

However, I have been wondering if I need to repurchase the licenses for FSX:SE. I think I know the answer, but would like the official stance.

 

Thanks.

Larry

i would say no because it is still FSX. and the only other version on sale is the P3D version, and that certainly does not apply.

Thank you for the reply. I thought that myself, but in my version of the Ops Center, there are both FSX and FSX: SE tabs. 

 

Confusing...

Larry,

 

Keep in mind that even though the license is the same, you'll still have to go to your PMDG account and download the latest NGX version.. Instructions for that are pinned to this forum.

Thanks, Walter. I think I already have/had the latest versions; service pack 1d. I'll research...

Don't over think this.  One license for FSX/FSXSE product, which will install into either or both.  The installation in either platform is a separate instance; that is, PMDG-FSX and PMDG-FSXSE products will have separate installations, liveries, aircraft settings, navdata, etc.  That is why the OC lists the platforms separate, they need separate livery managers, etc.
