Hi guys,

Please note that if you use Microsoft Flight Simulator X, please be aware of the recent developments here:

The company's admin has said the following:
Hello all,
I would like to further address some of the controversy that has taken place this evening.
I want to reiterate and reaffirm that we as a company and as flight simmers would never do anything to knowingly violate the trust that you have placed in us by not only buying our products but supporting them and FlightSimLabs.
While the majority of our customers understand that the fight against piracy is a difficult and ongoing battle that sometimes requires drastic measures, we realize that a few of you were uncomfortable with this particular method which might be considered to be a bit heavy handed on our part. It is for this reason we have uploaded an updated installer that does not include the DRM check file in question.
I want to thank you all for voicing your concerns in a considerate manner on our forums and elsewhere. We do listen to our customers because without you, there would be no FlightSimLabs.
Here's the link to the updated A320-X v232 installer.
