The only way they could make such an allegation is if there software IS spying on your system, assuming you didn't tell them you had this mysterious `hacking software`. So not only are they commercially stupid, insulting their customers, they are exactly the kind of people they rail against.Allcott

I had to reinstall everything on my system too and was successful with all except products from FSD and some from SimMarket where the downloading timeframe had expired. Nevermore! They have lost my future business. Flight One's system is the best IMHO and PMDG does well too (after receiving many complaints from customers). Cloud9 uses another party to handle their transactions and that is okay since they will send you an updated key everytime when you email them and ask for it. But their system is somewhat of a hassle and not as consumer friendly as FlightOne's and PMDG. I fully understand the need by commercial developers to protect their products but some need to review their EULA's and make them more consumer friendly. They'll have many more sales in the long run. If they are paranoid about people shoplifting their products, they shouldn't be in the business. They are basically calling a customer a liar whenever the customer provides some proof of purchase (such as e-mail address, logon info, and/or credit card used) and they deny another key or, in rare instances when everything is lost on your system including backups, the ability to download the product again. Make/keep the customer happy and they'll become filthy rich!Best regards,Jim

>FSD guys are idiots! I have experienced their ignorance too.>I don't buy their junk.

FSD has one of them.I really must question the statement, that they fly the same. Please backup this statement. I've used their aircraft models for years, including all those times that FSD gave out free upgrades for default aircraft. L.Adamson

Well, you succeeded in getting this thread locked. Post something like that again, and you won't have to worry about getting threads locked.
