NickN's Tweaks and FSX New Install

Recommended Posts

I just got NickN's tweaking document for FSX and it says its important to install FSX first, close it, reboot, then install Acceleration. I installed FSX and Acceleration before getting the tweaking steps and I can remember shutting down FSX before installing Acceleration but I can't remember restarting the computer. Does anyone know if the rebooting step is critical enough that I should uninstall/reinstall both? Also, I can't remember any reference to installing the SDKs Thanks. Tom

Tom you are most likely fine.. the reboot step is to clear the memory and ensure a clean as possible environment exists right after installing FSX which is a massive install. It also ensures all registry entries for file locations are initialized in the reboot process.If you are not seeing any issues which would make you question the install I would say you are probably fine however in the future I would not skip that step just to make sure the installtion is ready for the next patch
