Well, that was a surprise. New PC but MS Flight Sim X won't install. Looked on the web and there are some work-arounds but not sure I want to go down that path. What else is out in the Flight Sim market that people recommend ?
New PC running Windows 10

A few more details may assist..
So, are you saying, you had FSX loaded on a PC that worked ok. You have now replaced that PC with Win10 and when you tried to load FSX, it will not load because..............................
What message did you get?
Recently, I did the same...got a new PC and when I went to install my DVD, it said I had run out of installs and would not install and was dumped out of the install process. They also offered a solution, to contact MS to get a new install code. I contacted MS, got the run around a bit until I was sent to the correct department, and the MS office gave me a new code and waited for me to load FSX with the new code in case I had an issue.
The important thing was to give him the original code, and he gave an alternative code - which worked straight away.

Yes, I had PC on which MS FS X worked. The install on the new PC would just hang. No error message it would just get nowhere. I had only ever installed FS once on the old PC so I can't see how it would think I had run out of installs.
