win 8.1 and FSX RRS feed


  • Hi Roberto.

    You can download the Windows 8.1 ISO file from an active MSDN Subscription or from (this URL requires you to have a valid Retail product key code for Windows 8.1, which will be validated to allow you to download the file).
    There is not a special version of Windows 8.1 that is built to ensure compatibility with a software: you have to verify the software's compatibility against the specific Windows version you want to use or install that software in compatibility mode.

  • Hi Roberto,

    The Microsoft Windows 8 Compatibility Center website appears that Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Acceleration is compatible with both Windows 8 and 8.1.

    You could just google Microsoft Flight Simulator X and download, but please note:

    Do not install it to the default path, which is C:\Program Files (x86) etc. If you do that you can be certain you'll have problems with addons because of UAC in interfering. Instead, install to something like C:\FSX, or to a different hard drive than C: if you have one.

    Second, don't run it off the tile screen, but run it off the desktop.

    And third, run it as Administrator.
