  1. Hello, I need help transferring FTX Global License from Flightsimstore. I log into OrbxDirect , click on account and I don't get an FSS License transfer button. Order Number is FSS022328. Thanks for any help. Matt
  2. I recently purchased three DVD versions of various airports. They are acknowledged in FTX Central, and there is an "Update Available" tag for each of the three. However, there seems to be no way to transfer the license for update support. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks in advance! Cheers, Raphael
  3. Hello good people, I am loading FSX steam on a desktop and all is going well. When i run FSX central and go for an update, it says my license is not good, and this is after migrate. I want to have 2 copies of FSX steam, one on my work laptop, and the other on my desktop at home. My speedy laptop I use on weekends, my desktop I will use on weekdays so I do not have to setup laptop.
  4. Hello everyone, Effective immediately, we are restricting the number of Orbx products you can download whose licenses you transferred from FSS. The restriction will be set to ONE product download per customer per day, until further notice. NOTE - this restriction does NOT apply to any new products you have purchased from OrbxDirect, nor freeware demos or downloads. That is, anything you have purchased from OrbxDirect since November 1st has NO download restrictions. We have requested Adrian at FSS enable the validation server for all your old FSS wrapper installers so you can re-install from those at any time. Again, this is a temporary measure. We have not yet heard back from Adrian regarding this request but I am sure it won't be a major technical issue for him to implement. Why are we doing this? 1. PANIC DOWNLOADING. It appears that a "panic" has set in with all customers who transferred their FSS licenses to OrbxDirect. Because the old FSS wrapper installers can no longer be validated after the transfer of licenses, we think people felt insecure about a potential PC or Windows crash/reinstall without any backed up installers. This has caused a mad rush of downloads on our servers, generating over 50TB!! of data downloaded in less than a week. That is 50,000GB of data. 2. CUSTOMERS NOT READING INSTRUCTIONS. Despite our best attempts at creating a FAQ, step-by-step guide, video and answering countless customer questions, the message has still not gotten through - YOU DO NOT NEED TO DOWNLOAD EVERY ORBX PRODUCT WHOSE LICENSE WAS TRANSFERRED FROM FSS. 3. UNNECESSARY DOWNLOADS. Just because with OrbxDirect all products now use a different installation method (FTX Central v3), and use a different backup (encrypted nested ZIP files/folders), does NOT mean you should download and create backups for EVERY Orbx product license you transferred from FSS. After all, if they are installed and working in your simulator before you transferred your licenses, why do anything at all - unless you are literally planning a PC rebuild, OS re-install? I doubt that many of you are in this situation. 4. REBUILD AT A CONTROLLED PACE. Even if the worst were to happen and you had to re-install all products, downloading them from our servers is not a major headache, nor does it necessarily need to be done all at once. After all, as has been said numerous times, can you really visit every Orbx product location in one day, or one session? No. So we find the need to download and create backups for your entire library rather odd behaviour to say the least. 5. ARE WE ARCHIVE LIBRARIANS OR SIMMERS? Can I make a comparison? I recently purchased a new laptop. I installed FTXC V3 and installed Prepar3D V3.4.9, then downloaded FTX Global, Vector and openLC NA. I then enjoyed many flights in the sim in between doing other tasks. I also installed Steam and began to download some games I had previously purchased. Since many of them are > 30GB in size and I only have 7.5Mb/sec broadband, I usually installed one every few days, or one per week. Many times these downloads I would leave running overnight. I then began to add other Orbx regions and airports, perhaps one a day. My point is that it was unreasonable for me to expect to re-install my entire Orbx library or my entire Steam games collection all at once. Nor did I even create backups of my Orbx and Steam installers, since it's just easier for me to install what I need, when I need it. I am more interested in flying or gaming, than being an archive librarian. Keeping archived installers also takes a LOT of space; in the case of Orbx it's 200GB excluding freeware. I understand this restriction will be received with some negativity from certain people, but frankly - we can't justify the cost of 50-100TB of data transfer per week - that would erode any profit from our sales, which would limit Orbx's future expansion and growth plans or new product rollouts. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. The only reason we offered to transfer your FSS licenses in the first place was to make it easier and simpler to manage ALL your Orbx products you have purchased from day one - in one place, with one store, one installation method and one way to apply updates, patches and service packs. We did this to make things easier for YOU. What we did not expect was such a crazy demand on our servers for archiving the entire collections of old purchases. It would have been easier to allow old FSS installers to remain active and useable, which is what we are reverting to now. Sorry for the blip in programming - with anything new, there are bound to be warts and tweaks, so we're doing our best to provide you with a seamless customer experience, but not at the expense of eroding all profit margins on bandwidth costs, sorry. This is a temporary measure only. We will review bandwidth over the coming months and adjust download limits accordingly.
  5. Hello friends Hope this is the right forum as its not really a support question but a more general one This faithful old machine of mine just cannot handle the ORBX and Im getting slide shows. I've begun researching for my next gaming rig which will be a beast hee hee. Anyway, I just wanted to ask you all - what is the procedure for installing my ORBX products on the new machine? I'm going to be wiping all the drives on this old one. But before that I will of course do the proper uninstall for my ORBX stuff. Does this work like Windows? ORBX will detect that I uninstalled and will stop tying my license #s to this machine? The licenses work on a type of hardware signature? Will my ORBX just install ok on the new machine or will I have to contact you all letting you know of the new hardware etc. Thanks
  6. My question is about how Orbx Lisence work on moving to another computer, and will I have to do any particular steps as not to have reinstall problems and to retain my licences. I have paid over $150 for this EXCELLENT software, Base and Vector, and like it to be registered properly only to me, and have it update etc as it is now. I am removing it from my old laptop that will be given to another one of my employees. I have a new Dell computer coming next week, to replace my current Dell computer. I can 100% reload everything new, or just copy all over, both ways not a problem. Just need to know the best way for transferring what I have purchased. Just info about those who are curious, me Dell inspiron 17 with i7 4th generation cpu and intl graphics 4000 runs the simulator with Orbx no problem, all maxed out. My new laptop moves to 17 6th generation, better graphics and more memory, so I assume it will also run well. Thank you for this support and for creating a fantastic product that I am 100% happy with! Steve C from Connecticut
  7. Hi ! Today i got my PPL and can enter "The lounge" ! 1 h 20 min's check ride and i got the license in my hand. A day to remember ! Back to the Champange ! Cheers ! Stefan Nilsson Örebro - Sweden
  8. Hi This is probably a silly question, and I did try searching both Google and the Forums, but can I transfer my FTX licenses to another PC that I have? I have a laptop that has FSX on it. I now have a PC with both FSX and P3D on and I don't use my laptop for anything FS related other than running ASN over a network. So, can I uninstall Orbx EU England from my laptop and install it on my PC? Do I need to uninstall it in any particular way? I did check the EULA and that states only installing on one PC but didn't seem to say whether I could move the license. Thank you.
