Microsoft has now pushed me too far. First I paid almost a $1000 for a PC. Then when I try to use any of the microsoft office programs that "come" with my pc, I have to pay extra for them.
I almost never use those programs anyway so it wasn't too much of a big deal for me. But their latest ploy has pushed me over the edge.
For Christmas I got the new Microsoft Flight sim X Deluxe edition. This sim cost close to $100. I got the Deluxe, so it costed $40 more than the regular version.
I was out of town when I got it. I had some free time so I installed it on my laptop, just to try it out. It was really great. I couldn't wait until I got home and tryed it out on my pc with my microsoft sidewinder joystick, that I've had for years. It was bought just to fly all the previous versions of flight sim that I have payed for.
Well I got home and installed it on my pc. Before you can fly the sim you have to activate the software. I went through the "LONG" process to activate it and I got a message that I have installed it on too many computers.
I hit the roof. I called them and I spent hours on the phone with them. I think there were a total of 4 phone calls. After one call I looked at my phone and I had spent 1 hour and 12 minutes on just that call.
Here is an email that I wrote to Mirosoft.

Q4: How many times can I activate the product?
A4: There is no limit to the number of times that you can activate the software product on the same computer. For example, you can remove and re-install or re-activate the product any number of times. An additional activation is provided so that you can remove and re-install the product on the same computer or on a different computer.

Am I wrong for thinking that with the amount of money this game costs that I should be able to put it on both my pc's?
