I have 64 bit Win 10 Pro upgraded from Win 7 Pro.
I have had no problems using my registered ver of Flight Sim X Gold Edition in Win 7 and after I upgraded to Win 10 at the end of July.
With Win 10 Pro, I was able to delay the install of the Anniversary update for a while but it finally caught up with me a couple weeks ago.
The update fried my boot record so the drive/registry I was using was useless for booting, But everything on the HD was still accessible.
So the Geeks installed a new HD with Win 10 Anniversary update installed. I could now access my old HD but obviously Flight Sim would not start up.
I tried reinstalling Flight Sim over the top of the existing as I have done successfully with other programs but it won’t complete the install from the original disks.
I tried copying the disks to a thumb drive from a different computer then copy all the files to the new HD and try the reinstall that way, no joy.
So getting to my questions before I go out and buy Flight Sim X all over again:
Can Flight Sim X be installed on a Win 10 Pro machine? If I buy the Steam ver of Flight Sim, will my Megascenery files and added “stuff” work? What other options might I have?
Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
