SteveW As I have written above the guy that supposedly helped me install didn't install Acceleration. I  juast checked in my Windows 7 installation how it look in Control Panel and there it shows: Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Acceleration, where everything Works fine. In the installation in windows10 only Flight Simulator X shows.

If it helps here is my conversation with the moderator at captainainsim that´s been helping me too:

Yes, I think that's it. Just put in the disk and double click setup.exe.

Thanks for this advice. Now what about the fact that FSX was installed to program files (x86) Wouldn't a comlete reinstall into a private folder under my C:\ be better ?

 

Sorry for my inconclusiness.

Installed and run, said something about activation not being posible, at the last stage.I let it run, then I loaded up the sim and checked if the missions and added Acceleration planes had loaded. they had, like the P-51 :biggrin:

Everytime I start FSX I get the activation error message in windows10; How can I get rid of the message? I get a window that tells me to search the internet and if I press "Yes" I get sent to a page a Microsoft that I find extremely confusing, If I press "No" I go straight into the game; Still I'd like to get rid of the message.

That's right. Some new stuff in there allows more addon types, one of your planes might require that. When I said install disk two, I forgot about the middle disk in FSX Gold, I meant disk two being the Acceleration disk.

I mentioned already that since you are more familiar with FSX installed into your C:\FSX\ folder, you could try that. However the location of FSX didn't seem to be part of your problems. Only that the confusion surrounding the location of FSX caused you to take ownership rights.

See if your plane works with the Acceleration installed. Then consider if you want to completely re-install.

SteveW SUCCESS! After installin Acceleration and reinstalling the plane the gauges show One gauge the flaps indicator doesn't move, for some reason or other, there are sound that indicate theire position,though. I have posted in the forum to inquire what might be wrong ?

Some part of acceleration was required then, could have been the SimConnect version updated

Surely I just checked the other a/c that didn't show gauges either and it too has gauges now; Just have to get rid of the activation message I got last night. I hate messing with the registry.

 

Thanks for you fallow up and patients.

Going back to the initial problem, I first suggested to look at the DX10 preview box at the start, that would have meant that acceleration was installed properly - if the DX10 box was in there.

Many planes and other addons need that to be installed for SimConnect and also some other items. When you run it you accept the new keys. Then set up your controls.

 

The location of FSX doesn't matter, just that some planes installed into that same folder can't save a plan or their panel setting. To resolve that we set the Users Group Modify Allow permission. We do not Take Ownership, adjust UAC levels, make folders or partition drives, and don't have to run as admin. That's all an obfuscation of problems presented by addons. We just install to program files and check the Users Group Modify Allow on that folder before installing addons. That way addons can save plans and settings, and all addons are tested that way.

Yes DX10 box is present just checked my other addon that wasn't showing gauges and it is now.

Now just need to install my Weather Program FSXWX, which when i tried it gave me a simConnect error...

There you are. No need for a new simulator.

Don't bother checking the DX10 box unless you have DX10 capable addons. DX10 runs faster than regular FSX but some things might not look right, and some things can look grainy.

Regarding the FSX Acceleration activation Error, Is there a limited number of times one can start FSX\Accl.? Before something else goes wrong ?

There is a limit, but it is quite usual, to stop sharing of the program.

SteveW  It's looking great with DX10 checked, no fall on FPS or graphics' anomalies.

DX10 looks a little better and runs a little faster.

So it seems, I don't understand your reply regarding the number of times FSX\Accel. can be started with the Activation Error Message; Sorry my hard head.

If you have an activation error it might be because of too many installs.

That can be reset, we used to call an auto-reply number and quote the serial number in the box..

You could search the error message as you see it in Google you can see what others do. Type in:

FSX Gold: 'your error message'

SteveW: Have done so, big hastle, for me at least, some say one must go to registry and fiddle around with a KEY, not much for it as I am not very comp. proned, as you might have noticed.Apparently the error starts when one installs Acceleration, quel domage!
