Can FSX Gold & Accel still be activated ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have recently bought a genuine but previously used "FSX Gold & Accel" three disc pack complete with all leaflets, manuals and both authentication codes. Both FSX discs install perfectly but when I try to activate the FSX program on line I get the message that there is a problem connecting to the activation centre. I need to activate the FSX program before I can go on to install the Accel' disc. I have been trying to activate for over a week now.

My question is has Microsoft closed the FSX activation centre ?

Any/all help will be hugely appreciated.

Thank you,

Chris.

As far as I know and/or heard, the FSX servers are no longer online.  In you Main FSX folder there is a Phone Activation .xml with phone numbers to call for activation.  Not with live people, but with robot voice asking for activation info.

I just tried the United States toll-free number and it is still working!

I built a new system back on the first of August and was unable to activate either.  I then purchased FSX SE.  Very inexpensive.  I believe $20.  Needed it badly.  Very disappointed in MSFS 2020 other than low level scenery gwacking.   🙂  Yes, gwacking!  Combination of gawking over it and and quacking about it.
