Removing FSX from same PC with P3Dv2.4 installed

Recommended Posts

Hi, community.

I'm using P3Dv2.4 from last November and had installed it on the same HD (same PC obviously) as FSX. Now, I'm thinking to completely remove my setup of FSX to save HD space. Does anyone help to share any experience on doing that?. I'm a little afraid I will loose some parts of my P3Dv2.4 setup (like FSX Simconnect, for example, etc.) with the risk of making my P3Dv2.4 unusable. I have the Estonian tool also installed.

Thanks,

Edward

Hi Ed, 

 

I just did this myself, and I did not encounter any problems. First unlink the EMT (you do not need FSX installed for it to work when you relink), and then use standard Windows program removal. That's about it!

There is a simconnect redist for FSX:A  in your P3D/redist folder folder should you need to re install it.

Thanks Slayer. Do you refer to the SimConnect executable located inside the subfolder Interface/FSX-SP2-XPACK/retail/lib?.

Hi John, thanks

 

Yep thats the one, you could install the other versions as well if you have an addons that were compiled against those versions too. They are all stand alone so you don't have to worry about if you installed an older version etc.

 

I've never needed the older versions for anything TBH though so I wouldn't install the others unless you really need it.

Actually, removing FSX does *not* remove the SimConnect utilities - they are separate installations and show up as such in the Control Panel -> Programs listing.

 

Ah: I see that Slayer beat me to it...
