Hey Team Xplane

I am Ifhan from Indonesia, I have already paid for the purchase of X-Plane Digital Download, and have gotten the Key via my email.

now I'm doing a tour of the Office out of town, and I will install Xplane on my PC which is where I come from,

can I download the demo version first, then I will activate using the key after returning to my city? because the PC is not with me here and the internet in my city is very slow?

sorry.. I just read on your website

"The same installer you used to install the demo can also be used to

update an existing copy of X-Plane, or

install an X-Plane product purchase."

now i am understand.

Hi lfhandp,

I am not from Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from down under.

With a digital download version you have to be connected to the internet at all times as X-Plane performs a silent background check to determine that your product key, subsequently the X-Plane software  is a legal version and not a pirate copy.  You can run the software a few times without connection to the internet but you will be then locked out on a possible permanent basis.

Good luck.
