Unable to activate online
I purchased FSX (new) and have attempted to install it on my computer. Every thing goes according to schedule until after I enter the MS authorization code. I then get the message that they are seeking the approval. I then get a message saying, "Unable to activate online. Part of this message also says, "License authorization was unsuccessful." I am then given three choices: Tray again, activate by telephone now, and activate later. I have attempted this many times over the past few weeks without success. I have tried this when I was already online, and not. Each time I try, I am again required to input the MS authorization code. Any help would be appreciated.

Where did you buy fsx from. Did it come in a cd or did you download it?

If you input the code incorrectly, you will get an error and if you try to activate too many times, you fall into the MS category of "must call to authenticate"...a typical response from Microsoft to combat software piracy. If I were you, I would just make the call, jump through their hoops and get resolution that way.
