One of the most frustrating things about installing a game onto your PC is that you will usually need to keep the disk safe and clean. As we all know, finding a disk or discovering that it now has a nice scratch engraved into the data is a hugely frustrating issue that can prevent you from having the night you intended to. If you were looking forward to firing up Flight Simulator 2004 tonight and getting stuck in about the skies of the world, but can’t find your disk, then you’ll absolutely love this lifesaver.

No image available.

It takes a few seconds to install and literally just needs to be copied over the FS2004.exe file within the directory that you installed Flight Simulator 2004 to. This makes it simple and easy to give yourself a chance to play the simulator without needing the disk on you all the time. Got it installed on the laptop or your office machine and fancy a quick flight on your break? Then why not have this no-cd patch handy to make sure that you don’t need to remember the disk every morning?

This is hugely useful as FS2004 can be hard to find on disk anymore, and this can leave you with a bit of a chase on your hands to get a hold of a new copy should your disk ever snap. I personally love files like this as they make it so much easier to keep an old classic still burning. I don’t have a clue where my disk is anymore, but it does not really matter – with the help of FS2004’ no-cd crack I don’t need to worry about a thing!

Make sure that that you don’t need to sit and stroke the icon on your desktop, longing for the disk to magically appear. With this crack capable of being installed in a matter of clicks you can effectively get started sooner rather than later – it takes no time to install, and works permanently thereafter!

Awesome!! I recently revived a Windows 8 laptop that had the BSOD from the Windows 10 launch. After a fresh install of FS9, I could not get the program to open. Your patch makes this work on Windows 10 (the latest update now). Thanks a bunch!!

Last year, when I went over to Windows 10 and reinstalled my FS2004, I downloaded the No-CD patch - fs9.exe - not sure of source Web site. Worked a treat then. Unfortunately, I did not save patch. After an unrelated system crash and failed recovery software, I have had to do a system rebuild. I have tried to download patch from your site but it does not arrive; no error message; just nothing happens. Does patch now exist? I've tried general Google search.

Help appreciated.

This was very useful. I did not have to find my flight sim CD every time I wanted to play it. (especially when my CD rom broke)
