If you want ASA on your FS computer, just install AS6.5 there first? ASA will not overwrite any old AS installation afaik, but I believe the installer for the upgrade packages check the registry for previous AS version.

Hi Bill,Thanks for the purchase!Yes, you need ASv6.5 installed where you want ASA to end up. When everything is installed, you can uninstall ASv6.5. Nothing will mix together.Thanks,

Jim,.... and ASG can remain installed? I have:1. main FS computer with FS9, FE and GEII Pro installed2. secondary computer with ASv6.5 and ASG installed (WideFS, registered)So, if I read this correctly, I should install ASA on my secondary computer, then uninstall ASv6.5 which will not affect ASG? "Graphic snapshot" will save textures (or settings) that are currently installed on the FS computer from all three addons?Can I keep ASv6.5 installed? Can I use both (not at the same time, of course!)?Thanks!Active Sky sure has come a long way since it's first incarnation in the good old FS2002 days. :(Well done and congratulations on the new ASA!

Hi Jure,No, ASG is embedded into ASv6.5. So, if you are interested:Install ASA on the client machine.With ASA process a group of snapshots. Each snapshot takes about a minute. Those textures will come from ASG.Now, either leave ASv6.5 installed so you can process new snapshots down the road, or uninstall it.Yes, both programs can be installed at the same time!I hope this answers your questions. If not, just post here. I'll be around all day.Thanks!
