The installer and launcher system has advantages for Aerosoft (it protects our copyrights better) and for the customers (makes it easier to see what is installed and what updates are available. Using the new system is simple and only adds a few steps to what was used before. There are however four things that you got to keep in mind.
- You need to be connected to the Internet while the installing and activation takes place (there is an offline option via email, more on that later).
- You need to be logged on as Administrator on your system.
- You need to understand that the product need to be activated before it can be used
- You need to know the installed files are customized to your order. Multiple files of the product will be marked so if they ever ended up on the Internet we know where they came from.
After the SETUP.EXE is started you will see this screen:
Click [Next] to continue, you expected that right?
Now you got to accept the license agreement. Easy to click [I accept....] but you might like to read the text at least one time, okay?
Enter your email address and the serial code we have send you.
A few screens that tell you what will happen. Click [Next] unless you see an obvious issue.
The files are now installed. Will take a few seconds.
And you're done. Click [Finish] to close the installation part of getting the software in FSX.
Now Aerosoft Launcher will start and you will see this.
Click on the [Sceneries] to open that section of the product tree.
And there is WEEZE X, the product we have just installed. By clicking on the [Activate] button the launcher will activate the software.
Select the download shop you used, enter the email address used when buying and the serial code and click [Online activation]. You will see the program contact the server and do it work. Note that only appropriate information is send. Product code, email address etc.
Eh voila, the product shows in green and you can now start FS to start enjoying the scenery.
