My solution to the problem was really simple I installed FSX I than installed service pack 1 and service pack 2 and it works like a champ.

Just a thought: did you install SP1 and SP2 before trying to install Acceleration? I seem to remember someone having problems with Acceleration before and they had to remove the service packs before it would install.
I presume you have now got FSX fully activated; I think it only allows two on-line activations and then you have to go through the “activate by phone” process.

It seems to me that no matter what system FSX or FSX gold / Steam -whatever is installed on, there appears to be very little consistancy.
For a few years I have refused to change to new system because of win 10 and incompatibility with FSX and my payware addon - now solved and working, still on win7 tho.
FSX as mentioned above should always be run before installing acceleration and the associated service packs, the reverse is also true, if uninstalling, do acceleration first, run FSX then uninstall FSX.
and on installing outside of programfiles, again this was something I never had trouble with but I did take ownership of the programfiles 86 and the sub folders and that must bypass problem associated with write permissions - just run admin for everything you can do and sorry Gary for your 1722 problem I had forgotten about elevated DOS.
Activating code? mine on it's very first install on win xp had to be done over the phone on the auto response system - give licence - get code type system, since then it's never asked to be re-activated on either my xp or win 7 OS's.
Running same FSX on more than one machine? no problem, it still runs on my XP pc and on my win 7 laptop, always has done but there's only me that bothers with it so generally it only runs on one system, the xp is rapidly heading for the skip.
So I think the thing remains as it's always been that no matter what your system is, you maybe able to help somebody else.
Here's to another 17 yrs of FSX, having typed that, just realised I'll be 77
