Moving FS9 to a second hard drive.

Recommended Posts

I posted this in response to another post over on flightsim and though many here could make use of the info too.For those wishing to move FS9 to a new HD installed in addition to your current one:Copy your entire flightsimulator installation over to the new drive.Go to Start/Run and type in regedit.Click find and in the find field, enter the path to your fs9 installation (most have theirs in Program files). Mine was C:CDGamesFlightSim. BTW, F3 in regedit is the Find Next command.Change every instance to point to your new path (D:FS9, etc.). There are tons of entires, but if you do it this way, FS9 will be registered in the new drive/path and any utilities, sceneries, aircraft, add-ons installed in the fs9 directory will work as always. Any utilities outside of the fs9 directory will be able to find fs9 just as always.

To all interested parties,I've used the "migrate" tool "FS2004_is_here" for several years I guess now. With no problems. It's a bit quicker than editing the registry...Lets me experiment on an older installation (installed under Win98 when I first bought FS9) before I add to the new install.http://www.visualflight.co.uk/fs2004toolkit/Cheers!Loyd
