Why do I need to type in FREEZE now?

Recommended Posts

Hallo together,

Since a Windows 10 update to Build 1903 (2019-06-21), I want to enter FREEZE when i activate it.

The last time I entered FREEZE, I had big Problems.

Can anyone confirm that I absolutely need to enter FREEZE? Or is there another way I can use my X-Aviation products again?

Sorry i am German and use Translator. Thanks for Help and a

Good Day - Ernst

Name your computer in the Gizmo activator when you get asked after every major Windows update.  Preferably a new name each time.  When you are asked to type FREEZE, make sure you select a name you entered that IS NOT the name you just entered after the latest update.  So if you just named your computer "EDWK01-a" after this latest update, and a previous name is "EDWK01-z", you freeze the one named "EDWK01-z".

Remember, you're activating a "new" machine, as determined by the Windows update, from within X-Plane.  It is safe to FREEZE an older machine ID.

Hope this made sense.

Ernst, which one is the new PC and which is the one you DONT need anymore.
You want to FREEZE the one you dont need.
This action cannot be taken back.

In Deutsch
Mit FREEZE löschst du die Autorisierung eines PCs für immer. Nicht reversibel!!
Das schafft Platz für deinen neuen PC.
Kommst du nicht klar schreib mir privat.
