Reinstall in windows10 (x64) ?

Not very happy at the moment. Despite attempting to install my favorite FSX a/c it's proven frustrating. The plane shows, with sound.No landing lights or gauges,( All blackened ) Have compared to how the installer places the files in windows 7 32,...To no avail. Is it compatible with win.10 (X64); Please help.

Make sure to turn Windows Defender off, as well as your Anti Virus software off, before/during installing it (see this topic: No gears, no animations, no gauges etc).

Did all of the above Mark. Then a xXXX Key was produced.I didn't know what to do with it ? I copied it to my FSX Folder and restarted the sim. Nothing new happened...No gauges !? I also checked where the key places itself during installtion  in windows7 32 and put a copy of it in the same folder. nothing happened here either ?

a BIT lost

The Key_xxxx.txt is required to complete a Manual Offline Activation.

When you run the installer again, you need to select Manual Offline Activation > Use a Key etc. > browse to the Key_xxxx.txt (and select it) > Install

Hi Mark, afraid no joy. Have the Key but I don't get the windows where to choose "Activation" Using 2.7 installer in windows10(x64). WICKET... Undecided
When does one select during installation..."Activation"? At the begining or the end??
Any suggestions?

Decided to try 2.6 installer...Still didn't get the activation page  CoolI'm bobbing in deepwaters.

Open the Run: command Start Menu > Windows System > Run (or it is faster\easier to press the keyboard shortcut - Windows Key + R), or navigate to the C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\CaptainSim

Type, or copy and paste %AppData%\CaptainSim\,  then press OK

Delete the p721 folder (p722 folder for the 727-200 Expansion Model, and p723 folder for the 727 Freighter Expansion Model).

Run the installer for the 727-100 Base Pack, 727-200 Expansion Model, 727 Freighter, and you should be asked to Activate them.

Still no joy Mark  Undecided Did all the above and I still get the panel with no gauges, and the 2D panel don't show except for the GPS Panel.

I must say I have restarted computer now many times and maybe Defender has activated again, maybe that's what going on ? I'll be giving it another try tomorrow: I've also C/P the key many times maybe I need a new one ? Not sure? Get a message that the key is invalid.Though I found it in AppData\Roaming\captainsim folder, where I suppose it goes by default ?

After you create the Code_p721.txt, go to https://www.captainsim.com/activ/offline.php. Once there, you see what the page like you can see in the attached image.
Once you get there, you have to click on the Browse button > find the Code_p721.txt and select it > click on Open
Checkmark the I'm not a robot, and verify that you are not a robot
Then click on Get a Key > Save the Key_p721.txt file (and remember where you save it)
Run the CS 727-100 Base Pack installer (current version is csp721_2700.exe) and when you select USE A KEY RECEIVED FROM CAPTAIN SIM browse to the save Key_p721.txt, and select it, click on Opem, and then click on the prompts to conyinue with the installation.
It should work after you have done all that.


Turn off your Antivirus Program, and Windows Defender when installing, or one of them will delete any files it considers to be a threat (virus). There are NO VIRUSES in the Captain Sim installers! But if they think there are, they are called a Flase Positive, meaning it believes they are viruses, but they are not.

Okay. The p721.dat is not your concern, it is created in C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\CaptainSim\p721 folder once you successfully Activate the 727-100 Base Pack.

1. Uninstall the 727-100 Base Pack
2. Delete any Code_p721.txt, and Key_p721.txt files you find, and delete the p721.dat file.
3. Turn your AV, and Windows Defender OFF (if you don't one of them might delete some important files during the installation, which will prevent the 727 from working).
4. Install the 727-100 Base Pack, use Manual Offline Activation, and when it asks, select GENERATE AND SEND YOUR SYSTEM CODE, then close the installer.
5. Save the generated Code_p721.txt to you Desktop.
6. Go to this website: https://www.captainsim.com/activ/offline.php, and Browse to your Desktop, and select the Code_p721.txt, then select Get a Key.
7. Save the Key_p721.txt to your desktop!
8. Run the 727-100 Base Pack installer, select Manual Offline Activation, and when it asks select USE A KEY RECIEVED FROM CAPTAIN SIM, browse to the Desktop and select the Key_p721.txt you just saved there, and when it gets accepted, complete the install.
9. Turn your AV, and Windows Defender back ON.

Repeat the above for the 727-200, and 727 Freighter if you have any of them.
The files are Code_p722.txt, and Key_p722 for the 727-200 Expansion Model, and Code_723.txt, and Key_p723.txt for the 727 Freighter Expansion Model (and delete the p722.dat, and p721.dat, which are found in C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\CaptainSim\p722/p723 folders) 

Start FSX, load a CS 727-100 and everything should work.

How frustrating, I've tried so many times I just got an error message, that I exceeded the number of attempts ? Does this mean I lost the software ?

No. You haven't lost it, you just need to contact Captain Sim, and have them unlock it again for you. Wink
