So what's up with this I wonder? I have new computer with 8.1 and it installed FSX with no problems. After getting a bad download from the net, I had to restore my computer to original settings. No big deal.
I installed FS 2002, 2004 with some small problems but they work. Now I can't install FSX at all -- it starts the install program and then gives me a message "1628: failed to complete installation" with no options except the OK button.
Can anyone help -- I am willing to try suggestions.
Can I possibly get it online using my original product key?
Thanks in advance.
