Add-On installation sequence

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I need some help with installing my Add-Ons. I heard somewhere that Add-ons have to be installed in a specific sequence, if thats true can anyone advise on which addons should go in which order. Ive tweaked Win 7 and installed FSX SP1& SP2 and I have also installed FSUIPC. the rest is as followsAerosoft Mega Airports Amsterdam FSXEditvoicepack XActive Sky EvolutionPMDG 737-800/900PMDG MD-11XPMDG 747-400XPMDG JS41Flight1 Atr 72-500XLevel-D 767-300ERAny help would be greatly appreciated. (Sorry if im in the wrong forum)ThanksIan Chenel

Hi again Ian,I can't say I see any order in what you have there, but will say the most common way and safe approach is to always install oldest 1st. I don't think that matters with today's OS's but the thing to keep in mind is how the OS might handle its C++ runtimes and other assorted framework, like .net. I always install my pmdg aircraft as 74x, MD11, J41 and now that I have the NGX will of course put that last in the order since it's newest.Another thing I highly recommend is once all your installs, reboots, tests and all that is over, is to download the latest C++ runtimes for both 2005 and 2008. After I have everything running and installed I always remove all the hundreds of duplicates each installs (rather annoying) and just install the latest "4". So if you have a 64 bit OS you download and install both the 32 (286) bit and 64bit, 2005 and 2008 C++.Hope this helps.Oh, for the recording I don't own the Lvl-D or the ATR but own the others. Editvoicepack can be installed any time since it's not tied into anything.
