Upgrading FSX

Recommended Posts

Aloha all from sunny Maui!A friend had purchased FSX Standard Edition and added SP1, SP2, Acceleration Pack, FEX and GEX. He now would like to upgrade to the Deluxe Edition, mainly to get the additional aircraft. Has anyone out there done this before? Should he uninstall the present version and start over from scratch? Could he just install "over the top"? Then would he have to re-install the service packs? Looking for help because we don't want to end up with one big mess!!Any help would be greatly appreciated.mauiguy

That is probably the only way to be 100% sure there won't be any mess.

That's what I had to do. As far as I know, there is no other way to do it.

From what I know, the registry entries are different for standard versus deluxe versions. I do reccommend as total re-install. You might have to go into the registry to clean out the old standard FSX entries, though.Jeff ShylukAssistant Managing EditorSenior Staff ReviewerAVSIM
