Just wondering if you can download FS2004 or you you can only get it on DVD?

I see this link:

http://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimulator/downloads.asp

but that looks like an upgrade only....

If anyone can steer me to a link where you can download that would be great, I've spent a while looking but can't seem to find it...

Thanks

Goat thats just an update.
The original 2004 comes on 4 disks (4.15GB).
Thats a big download http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It will probably get cheaper now though as FSX has been released http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

4GB is only the start though - I reinstalled FS9 ( = FS2004) last week, and after reinstalling all the 'crucial' add-ons, the size has gone up to 10GB... that's a lot for a 60GB drive!

(But then again, my Il-2 installation is now at 13GB...)

But if you look at the Generation X VFR scenery for FSX (covering England and Wales with aerial photos and accurate terrain mesh to make VERY accurate scenery), there's three volumes, each of which has three dual-layer DVDs - install all three with all the trimmings and it'll gobble up 66GB of hard disk space!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
