The developer did provided a refund at a later date...

Please update your description as it's not compatible with P3D or FSX:SE.

Based off the info on this site I have purchased a license for this software and the developer won't provide a refund even thought no License Key has been provided since the application isn't in a working state and that's what's needed prior to the developer providing your key.

I'm new to the flight community and would hate for the same to happen to others that haven't exactly committed themselves yet to the hobby.

Good Flights to all...
