First, you need DCS World.
1. Go to https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/world/ and download the free DCS World simulator.
2. You can now install the product through Module Manager; for DCS World 1.5, DCS World 1.5 Open Beta or DCS World 2.0 Open Alpha (requires code registration with ED as step 3 below).
3. Download via Module Manager if bought directly from the VEAO website:
Go to www.dcs-world.com
Click on Profile
On the bottom left side of the screen is License Check; enter your activation code given to you by VEAO.
This will register the code to your ED account.
Open DCS World and go to Module Manager.
You will see a pop-up message saying the product is available to install.
Select the product and click OK to install.
If this box does not pop-up you can select the product from the Available Modules tab.
Once installed open DCS World and you will see the Hawk icon at the bottom is now in colour.
When you first run any mission with the Hawk as a player aircraft it may ask for your activation code via a pop-up window.
Enter the product activation code provided on the email sent to you on order completion or from the My Account Section of our website.
