Microsoft released "Flight Simulator X" after 25 years of their "Flight Simulator" series. Players feel like they're actually flying with state-of-the-art controls and work to complete 55 individual missions. Switching the disc from one game to another every time you want to play a different game is tedious and causes wear and tear on your discs, subjecting them to smudging and scratching, especially with children. You can apply a No-CD patch to run the game without the disc at anytime.

Open the GameBurnWorld site.

Click the link that says "FLIGHT SIMULATOR X v1.0 [ENGLISH] NO-CD/FIXED DLL (1.12MB)."

Click one of the mirrors to select a site from which to download.

Click "Click to Download File" from the next screen, then save the file somewhere easy to remember, such as your desktop.

Double-click the file to open it.

Copy the three ".dll" files in the archive to the main directory of "Flight Simulator X," which is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X" by default.
