In early August, after a catastrophic system failure, I was unable to activate FSX Gold any longer.  I blew my morning's breakfast allowance on FSX - SE, which behaved quite nicely during installation.  That is my recommendation to you.  The only addons I later ran into trouble with were payware Orbx titles.  With the advent of MSFS two weeks away at the time I opted not to pay for Orbx again.  My FSX SE runs great on my new faster system, and I have brought forward the key aircraft models I was frequenting, as well as my RXP gauges, updated nav databases, my repaints, and my Megascenery and other addon scenery software, both freeware and payware.

Save yourself some frustration.  If you are retaining FSX then get the Steam version.

First of all good luck on the new system. Been simming for quite a while, never really thought about the steam edition.  I probably have around two thousand dollars worth of addons.   You were able to get your add-ons from fsx gold to fsx steam?

I also plan to install shortly flight simulator 2020 that's why and like most others bought this computer

I also shifted to FSX:SE a while back and all of my FSX addons work, including all ORBX's.  Post here if you have any difficulty installing them.

I ran into Orbx roadblocks.  What did you do to install Orbx products in SE?

I used ORBX Central.  Selected FSX: Steam Edition on top, went to My Products, and installed away.  What kind of roadblocks did you find?
