I updated recently to 10.45r2 and now x-plane wants dvd inserted even when I bought key only.  Program worked fine for a few days and today states that dvd preferences failed to save and to insert dvd in order to leave demo area which said dvd, of course, I don't have.

I restarted computer and this time it asked for product key instead of dvd so all is good. I'm new to this and apologize for waste of time.   C.C.

OK, I'm glad to hear it fixed itself after restarting! If something like that happens again, you can "force" X-Plane to bring up the product key authorization box by deleting a preference file.

On OS X it’s in users/(username)/Library/Preferences/ -> delete file X-Plane_drm.prf

On Windows the file will be in the user local app data folder, e.g. C:\Users\nnnn\AppData\Local\.
