    Hey mate,

    MS flight should work, as it is recommended for windows 7: Microsoft Flight

    Can't recall how to actually purchase the game, however. I got it for free, I believe, with the option to buy side items (planes, maps, etc) but never did. And somehow I ended up losing it. It was a download, not a DVD

    I think you have to download the client, and I think they discontinued it or something?: Download the Games for Windows Client | PC Games Client - Xbox.com. Dang... I just reinstalled the simulator, but I do think it has been discontinued, sorry

    There is a windows store app, claims to be free, called flight theory you might like, never tried it.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 and Flight Simulator X both run on Windows 8.1. I've played both on my 8.1 desktop PC.
