Unable to install fsx deluxe edition

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I've just bought the Flight Simulator X Gold Edition, after using the normal FSX.

When I insert the instalation disk, my system shows me a error saying thet it cannot be installed becouse there already is a newer version (than FSX) installed.
I now uninstalled FSX SP2, but the same error keeps popping up.

 

I cannot find the Service pack 1 to uninstal...

It would be a shame to uninstal FSX, because i have a lot of add-ons installed.
 

Can anyone help me please?

 

Thanx!

Why install Gold on top of DeLuxe?

 

Very confused here... 

 

You don´t need Gold if you have DeLuxe, maybe you just need to install Acceleration, if you want it?

no, i have the normal FSX, and now bought the FSX deluxe edition.

 

The gold pack consists of the deluxe edition and the Acceleration pack...


Just use the Acceleration disk, not disk #1.

That's the same?

As the deluxe edition?

Acceleration is the latest version of FSX.  It contains SP1.  You do not want to have SP2 and Acceleration installed at the same time.  SP2 is just an upgrade to FSX and does not contain any of the payware addons included in Acceleration.

But what's the difference between normal fsx and the deluxe edition?

I thaught there was a difference, why does it exists?

If you have "FSX Standard Edition" you will need to uninstall and reinstall everything.

 

If you have "FSX Deluxe Edition" you can just use the Acceleration disk.

 

Yes, it will stink to have to re-install your add-ons, but that's the price you pay for having installed FSX Standard.
