Hi,

On inputting my x-aviation username and password, I'm being asked to deactivate an instance. So I can decide (as I did not name my installs) is the date shown the date that the installation was first done ?

I do not run on additional machines, these are more than likely from copies of the install i take (one might even be x-plane 10)

Date shown is the date the machine was registered to the system. Probably correlates to installation date for most people.

They're probably from Windows Update. X-Plane version has no effect. It's an OS fingerprint.

Ben is correct in that a Windows update can trigger this, I think.

I recently had to re-register my laptop computer - it surprised me because I hadn´t changed anything hardware-wise, but other than that posed no problem.

Cheers, Jan

This is normal. The machine ID is generated from the OS install. Not your hardware.

Positive: You can change your hardware freely.

Negative: Windows update triggers a new machine name about 3 or 4 times per year.

 

An acceptable trade off in the quest for decent user friendly DRM.
