Hello

My name is James

Welcome to JustAnswer

Which version of Flightsim X do you have ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have the deluxe edition also the acceleration expansion pack

Expert:  James K. replied 2 years ago.
I am afraid its not Compatible with Windows 8.1

See the below from MS

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/compatibility/CompatCenter/ProductDetailsViewer?Type=Software&Name=Microsoft+Flight+Simulator+X%3A+Acceleration&ModelOrVersion=10&Vendor=Microsoft&Locale=1033&LastSearchTerm=&BreadcrumbPath=fsx&TempOsid=Windows+8.1

You would need to look at running a VM a virtual Machine running a different OS ( operating System Win 7 etc )

To get it running on the windows 8.1 Machine you could also install it Compatibility mode

But its known to have a few Issue for this program i am afraid

you can read more above
