FS2K2 and AMD & INTEL installs

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone knows if FS2K2 installs different files for AMD & INTEL cpu's? I just switched from AMD to INTEL and my FS2K2 install is on a different drive than the C drive. I had to format and reinstall XP on the C drive but the FS2K2 install seems to work fine without a reinstall. But I would hate to have to one by one copy files over to a new install of FS2K2. I can edit the registry to see the old copy of the sim.Anyways, just wondering if anyone knows if FS2K installs different software, dirvers, dll's, plugin's, etc. for INTEL cpus over AMD?Thanks..[br][br][div align=center][br][link:members.cox.net/fstimes/wetimage.html]Click Here For Weather Image of the Day!

No differencethe only thing will be that there will be no entries in the registry for FS2002. Shouldn't be a problem thoJohn-PaulToronto

Ok, cool, I think that I will install a copy of the software on the same drive as the current sim is located at and then copy the current sim and replace all of the files with the old ones...that way I will get the registry entries.- J

Bingo Joshieca!!! Just to be sure you don't lose any updated files, such as aircraft.cfg or *.air files. Rename your old fs2002 folder to fs2002OLD, reinstall the new installation, check that everything is working, then delete the new fs2002 folder and rename fs2002OLD to fs2002.If you also changed operating systems, i.e., Win98 to WinXP, you will need to delete the old fs2002.cfg, restart fs2002 and let it regenerate a new fs2002.cfg. If you have special setting in your old fs2002.cfg, just move it to a safe temporary area on your harddrive, then cut and paste those settings to the new fs2002.cfg.

No the OS was the same, just a new CPU and MOBO. SO I think that the .cfg file is safe. I ran it already and it seems like it works just fine. Basically what I did is what you suggested, changed the current one to FS2002OLD and let FS2K2 install a new fresh copy. Now I will delete all of the files from the new folder and copy into it all of my old stuff.Thanks for the input.

>>Now I will delete all of the files from the new folder and copy into it all of my old stuff.You don't need to do that. Just delete the newly installed folder and rename your FS2002OLD back to whatever you named the new install.All you needed to do was to have the registry entries reflect your FS2002 instalation and by reinstalling the FS2002 you accomplished it. Your old FS2002 folder will work just fine, and the Registry will be correct. I do this everytime I change drives or upgrade my system.http://members.cox.net/pstepanoff/images/OK_c2.gifPete S
