Do I have to install SP1 before SP2???

I said Acceleration contains the bits for SP1 and will install them if needed.SP2 is standalone, and requires SP1 to be installed.

You need SP1 before SP2.By the way, uninstalling SP2 also uninstalls SP1 (at least on my machine)! How convenient :)Cheers,=S.V.=eMachines T5026/P4/3.07GHz/1Gb RAM/160Gb S-ATA HDD/Windows XP Home SP2/ATI RADEON 9250 PCI 256Mb/ViewSonic VX910 19' 1280x1024/Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback 2

Copied directly from the FSX SP2 Download page at FSInsider: IMPORTANT: You must install Service Pack 1 before installing Service Pack 2. Hope it clears up any confusion.Regards, Kendall#1: E6750@3.2GHZ/Coolermaster HyperTX2 Gigabyte P35-DS3L 4GB Crucial Ballistix Tracers PC6400 Seagate 250GB 7200.10 SATA2 Gigabyte X800XT -Cat 6.12's CH Yoke/Pedals/Saitek Throttle Dual Monitor: Dell 2405/1905 #2: Dell 8400 3.2 H.T. 3GB PC4200 Diamond Xtreme/Logitech X-530's

I am almost certain that Phil posted somewhere that SP2 contains SP1, however, I think to be safe installing both on a clean setup will be the best option. My new rig just arrived today so I will be doing the same thing this week.Mark.

I don't know - but I would recommend SP1 before SP2.However, you can try installing SP2 only - if it requires SP1 first - it will tell you.

Hello Gang!Quick question! Just got my new machine and I'm getting ready to install FSX fresh. Do I have to install SP1 before SP2 or can I just install SP2 right over the fresh install???Sincerely,Dennis D. Mullert
