Hi Zeyrochoc,I am not from Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.
X-Plane is not a game but a real life flight simulation package?What exactly did you purchase and where or who did you purchase the flight sim package from? From what I know about X-Plane your opening sentence has conflicting information of how X-Plane works. In relation to the official and original x-plane demo version you need to enter the 24 figure product key supplied when you officially purchased X-Plane. When applied, after prompting, the demo version will run. You also need to be aware that when you run the digital download version after unlocking, you have to be connected to the internet at all times as the software performs a silent background check to determine you have a legal copy The software will shut down and give you the message currently being received until you apply the product key again.
If you have been connected to the internet then from what you have described suggests to me you may have purchased a pirate copy or a "dud" copy that crashes after a single use. Glenn
Zeyrochoc you got a new key from Laminar Research or from the G2A seller? This is second time my key bought from the same G2A seller has gotten deactivated... His G2A account name is Eche87685.
Anyone knows if the seller can refund the keys just like that? Maybe He just refunds all of His sold keys after some time, and hopes most of the buyers don't play the game anymore, don't notice that their key got deactivated, and gets the money back without having to give it back to the buyer (is this possible)?
You were extremely lucky to get a genuine replacement product key from Laminar as comments from Laminar is don't purchase from that site. Irrespective of what other products you have purchased or intend to purchase from G2A have a look at the current comment from Peki7 and read the references I have quoted on others caught like you. The bottom line is you were originally sold a pirate copy.
