After entering my 25 digit product key for flight simulator X, I get the following error: Invalid Product Key The product key entered is incorrect or invalid. Please retype the correct product key. OK This is the product key direct off the little slip of paper I got with the disk, which I bought new off Amazon. Disabling widnows firewall didn't help - so I tried disabling security essentials for a spell which didn't help either. Anyone have any ideas?
