PMDG Installers for FSX Products Question

Recommended Posts

Will the installers for each of the PMDG products designed for FSX be more seperate (not dependant on each other) as their FS9 conterparts were?In other words, in the past, if you owned several PMDG products, there was a specefic installation order that must be followed. Especially if you were re-installing all PMDG products or had purchased them out of order. Un-installs could also affect other existing PMDG installations too.As PMDG gains momentum into the FSX product line, I was curious to know if PMDG has changed methods in this area as well.Also, how about the availability of repaints downloadable as both individual and one large packages? Many of us collect and install all official repaints and at install time, clicking next, next, next, a couple of hundred times for each PMDG repaint was always tiresome. One large repaint package for each PMDG product would also be especially helpful during re-installs. Just my thought for the day.Cant' wait for Saturday's announcement. BTW, what time Saturday? LOL...

Al,Yes, the new installers won't have the issues that exist between the NG and 744. It's really just one issue - the 737 installer doesn't version check the PMDGOptions.dll file and will overwrite it if you have the 744 installed. Since the 744 uses a newer version of the file that supports both planes, the 744 stops working. You can get around this by just renaming that file prior to installing the 737, then deleting the old one that gets put there and naming the new one back.All our new products are industry standard InstallShield installers and won't have this type of issue ever again though, yes.
