Yes, it works on Windows 10. I'm actually using FSX on Windows 10 and it works well.

Gh0st ,,, got a question for you ,,,
I have a version of FSX GOLD Edition on CD box from Microsoft since a fiew years now.

I am using that version since a long while on a older PC and want to get
the FSX into my new high end sim only PC I have now. I was thinking to get the STEAM FSX version ,,,
but I want to be sure befort making the STEAM move that my FSX GOLD Edition CD box version I have
wont work on Win 10 that I have on my new high end NEW PC Sim.

I tought FSX GOLD Editon CD Box version didnt work anymore if we want to have FSX GOLD Edition on
a new Win 10 PC.

The question ,, can I still use my CD box FSX GOLD Edition version on my new Win 10 high end PC for many
years to come ,, or I have to make the switch to STEAM version of FSX ?

Thanks mate !

Honestly man, I'm not sure. Your Gold edition SHOULD still work from what I've read here

I'm still running Windows 7 on My desktop still, and using Gold Edition.

Thanks so much Gh0st !

Yeah I think it will still work fine ,, as I dont use any online live flying with my version and always fly offline.
Its not for the addons as I dont use them in my FSX files ,, I load addons aircrafts only to try and then flush them
off my PC or into zipfiles to remain there till I feel like flying them again in FSX sim files again.

My main objectif is to re-load my PMDG B737NGX from my DVD box version into a stronger high end PC I have now for Simulators only use. So I guess it will all work fine for me as what I have read on at STEAM ,, they dont have so many change done and it wont affect the way I fly on FSX for a very longtime into the future.

Now as we are in the FSX sim subject,,, for my new PC Win10 ,,, I have been looking for a great HOTAS stick and throttle
that works greatly. As my old Logitech is getting ready for a make over ,, but did give me so many years of good flying.

Can you list me some HOTAS you would consider for to use for a good periode of years with out issues or problems ,, meen the QControl have to be totaly great or top end.

I know a fiew in the market ,,, but would like to hear your side of the story about HOTAS you would point me at.
All other peoples can reply about what would be the HOTAS I should look for to use as a PRO pilot.

Any price TAG ,, doesnt matter to me ...

Thanks for sharing your point of view and experiences in that HOTAS matter ...

My VA's Information if you click Account Balance, and do the math, you'll see I'm making the VA some decent cash. I always include what I make as the pilot, since I tend to use that to help pay for the birds as well :) now if only I were making that much in RL lol
