I figured ... someone would beat me to it.

 

Yes, should be available in your Purchase Downloads link for your account.

 

Time for me to go on vacation with Pete.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Yes,  This was mentioned weeks ago at 2.5 notes prior to launch.  2.5 Will require Full Reinstall as it has different paths for some files.

 

I prefer clean install anyway

I might find out how the v2.5 would do with the new 347.52 driver. Now, I can use the full RGB without a third party utility.

 

EDIT: I will be installing Prepar3D to my 2TB HDD (D:\) rather than my 250GB SSD (C:\) because I'm starting to get worried about the space (I'm planning to get FS Global 2010 and I might have problems with having too little free space).

Thanks to Rob for all the hard work on this.  And thanks to all of you who are going to be the pioneers.  I'll look forward to your reports.  My current plan - wait for some of the third party stuff to get compatible, order some computer parts, tweak the system and join all of you in a few weeks... or sooner, if caution fails....   B)

I just uninstalled every addon in Prepar3D, Prepar3D itself, every folder associated with it and used CCleaner to remove all of the registries that no longer exist to Prepar3D. Prepar3D to install v2.5 once the download is done (I'm at 80% @ 2.9MB/s).

You might want to check with Mrs. Pete first!

No need to worry about space for FSGlobal2010, you can install it to any hard drive and the installer will add the appropriate entry to your scenery.cfg for wherever it is installed.

I'm surprised I got 17.7 MB/sec fastest I've ever had.

Does 2.5 fix the random bridge/pylon spikes that litter the landscape?

Good stuff- I'll be doing the same. To confirm, official advice from Adam @ LM:

 

Hello!

Please see http://prepar3d.com/news/2015/02/98935/ for detailed information.

It is recommended that you uninstall v2.4 before installing v2.5. Additionally, if you have any issues running v2.5 it is recommend that you clear all files found in the following folders:

  • %PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2

    %LOCALAPPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2

    %APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2

    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v2 Files

Note: Due to changes to the installation folder structure, Prepar3D v2.5 will not be released in an installer patch form. Please see the included Learning Center.chm for more information.

Many suggestions and comments written on this forum have directly influenced the development of v2.5. Thank you for your support and we look forward to reading your feedback on Prepar3D v2.5!

According the release notes it does address the bridge/pylon issues.

 

Btw, I'm getting 10mb/s on the download :)

Problem is that I already did that.
