Using FSX on different machines

Hello again. 

   I have been using FSX Acceleration on a Windows 10 Home computer.  I have purchased another Windows 10 Home machine intended to be a dedicated gaming machine for FSX.  Is it possible to use original FSX/Acceleration on both machines.  When trying to boot up the program on the new computer it produces a dialog box titled:

Product Activation Error
"We're sorry, an unexpected error occurred which is preventing product activation from being completed.  ERROR CODE: 1-80004005  More information about this problem may be available online.  Would you like to view this information now?" 
Followed by Yes and No boxes.
 
   Before I go to Microsoft, do you have any experience with this error code?  I'm fearful that they will simply switch my activation to the new machine, leaving the older one inop for flt sim purposes.  The machines will be in two different places.  That's the reason I'm doing this.

RadarMan,
Many thanks for the tip.  The Aussie's video clip solved the problem perfectly.  I'm up and running.
