How do install the DQ400 in P3Dv2? I want to use it on both platforms but I read somewhere that P3D has to be on the same HD as FSX. Is this still true or is there maybe another solution? Currently I can't have both platforms on the same HD (not enough space!).

Just point the main installer to the Prepar3d Folder instead of FSX, the installer of the newest patch lets you choose P3D...
Works fine for me.

Harry,

          It's true that if you have the Q400 installed on one platform and want to install it on the other, they both must be on the same physical hard drive. It's an anti piracy thing.

I personally don't care for that as I have 3 sims on 3 separate SSD's! Now I have to "burn" another install counter in order to use in both P3D and/or FSX. But, I guess IF it has been optimized for P3D, not just an installer, just use it P3D.

Sorry I don't understand what you mean with "just use it P3D" ? Meanwhile I tried to install it but I get a "cannot connect to server" error. But maybe this is a different thing.

I had the same situation. After I installed the Q400 on P3D if I tried to use the one in FSX, after I loaded it it would bounce continuously. I did some research and that was the answer I found. You might want to confirm it with Majestic before you do a reinstall.

That what occurs with improper registration/anit piracy. My question is still no installer for P3DV2.2? I guess Ill have to uninstall for FSX reinstall for P3D, there goes another installer countdown? If it is P3Dv2.2 "Compatible", why no dedicated installer? Confusing

What is the reinstall countdown limit?

 

This aircraft cannot be installed into both FSX and P3D V2.2 at the same time?

You are only allowed so many installs. 5 I believe? You tell me, can you install it in both FSX and P3dv2 simultaneously? i'm trying now but can't connect to MJ servers.

If you run out of installs, simply log a support ticket with Majestic Software asking to reset your install limit and it will be done.

You can always contact them via a support ticket to get more installs. Not really the end of the world unless you want to make it that way.

 

Kinda  a waste to pass up on such a quality addon just because you can't install it over and over again off the bat.

Oh I have, more than once! Just that it makes me feel like I'm a criminal or something to have to beg for more installs.( recently had two, yes two SSD take a crap) This shouldn't deter anyone from purchasing the Dash 8. Its a fantastic addon and the folks at Majestic are excellent people.. At least for FSX.... Iver been waiting for a P3D "Official" version to try it there. The lack of an Official installer for P3D concerns me a little. I assume to install in P3D, you use the FSX installer and point it towards the P3D install path? Dont want to mess with any migrating tools..

Rendi,

 

 

So, it cannot be installed in FSX and P3D at the same time?

I have FSX on one ssd with Majestic and P3dv2 on a separate SSD without Majestic - like Rendi asks - can I install to P3d - last time I tried this it would not work. Could only have it on FSX or P3d.

 

Is this a p3d installer - I know people say point it to P3d - but can they now run side by side meaning I load FSX and fly majestic or I load P3d and fly majestic on there.

 

Thanks for any help

Oh diddums! ....... :P     Poor you, that sounds awful  :/

 

.... have you considered how lucky we are that Majestic have provided FREE compatibility for P3D 2, when most other vendors like A2A (and soon PMDG) are charging big bucks for "separate P3D" licences.

 

just a thought.
