Since I have a DVD version of x-plane 9 with the serial number, and I just got a Mac Book Pro with no DVD Reader, I downloaded the trial version of X-Plane 10 from your site and want to know if it could be possible to activate this copy.

Hi, digital download and DVD sets are distinct products.

Moreover, each version  (9, 10 or 11) are also different products.

Indeed, I haven't found any way to buy X-plane 10 digital download from Laminar Research website, but I wouldn't see the point in buying X-plane 10 now. It would make you save maximum 10$, considering the current price of X-plane 9.

I would rather go for X-plane 11 digital download, but just be aware of the hardware recommendations :


PS : I am not affiliated with Laminar Research, but there are many related topics on this forum.

I am confused now. Did you buy X-plane 11 or not?

If yes, did you try X-plane 10 demo to see if it runs better on your Mac Book Pro?
