Please Help...Issues Installing FSX Game

Sat Jan 05, 2008 5:11 pm

Hi,

Ok, heres the problem. My friend burned me a copy of the Flight Simulator X onto a DVD +R (16X) and it will not install on my laptop running XP.

The burned version of the DVD-1 game did work on my other PC and plus the original DVD-2 of the game did work on the laptop. But not the DVD-1. I can hear the DVD tring to spin but nothing happens and when I try opening My Computer nothing is seen and I have to use task manager to close it.

What can be the issue here?

Well, there's your first problem. It's called software piracy and it's a felony. And anybody here who tells you how to make it work is aiding you in comitting a felony.

It's designed to do that.

Glad to hear it. Pay for it or don't use it. I am not prepared to subsidise your illicit use of software which I support. Grow up - software piracy is not a victimless crime. I pay for your theft. It doesn't matter how clever you are in getting a pirated copy to work, it is theft and it costs me money.

I was able to pre order deluxe for $50 from a closeout place. But when that was delayed, I got an AUTHENTIC unopened copy off ebay for 40 something. They were as low as 30

I've contacted Microsoft for you, they'll probably get in contact soon to settle things.

Were you in the 13 - 15 year age bracket, you could be forgiven for juvenile antics, you might be given the benefit of the doubt. However .....
