Can I instal the MS patch FIRST and then PMDG NG...?

Recommended Posts

I am installing FS2004 and plan to instal a zillion existing add-ons from my older P4 onto my new XPS PC. I have successfully installed FS2004 and wondered, is it safe for me to instal the official MS patch for FS9 first and then re-instal the PMDG NG series? The patch has a warning about trying to instal stuff that modified the original, unpatched FS9 and I want to be as sure as I can that I get the sequence right.Appreciate any advice, thanks!Jonathan

Jonathan,You should be fine patching FS9 to FS9.1 and then install the rest of your stuff. Be aware though. Read the documentation provided by MS and follow the guidelines. A lot of hassles can be avoided by doing so. You need to upgrade FSUIPC to latest version and Active Camera has a patch for FS9.1. The PMDG NG works without any alterations on either FS9 or FS9.1Hope it helps,
