Uninstalling ORBX FTX Vector in P3D2.4

Recommended Posts

Dear simmers,


I have several ORBX products installed (Global, Vector, LCEurope, FTX Australia, FTX England/Wales/Scotland and a bunch of airports) and am quite happy with the looks of it. But while using demanding aircraft ( e.g. PMDG777) I am experiencing sometimes OOMs, ironically especially when I approach ORBX airports. This is very annoying after a Long Haul Flight....

I learned that ORBX Vector uses quite a lot of memory, and I still only use the primary roads option (secondary, tertiary roads disabled) and therefore I would like to uninstall Vector to see the difference. But I am unable to find any uninstall-program within my data folders. Are there any ways to safely uninstall FTX vector? I do not want lower my  LOD or other details anymore to avoid the OOMs.

Another oppertunity would be, as I am using the Simstarter programm, to disable the corresponding vector files, but where to locate them?


Thank you very much in advance !

I do this using SimStarter. All Vector entries are under


\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\ORBX\FTX_VECTOR


There are four entries to deactivate. I leave the fifth one "VECTOR_AEC" active, as these are the airport corrections which might be useful.


On the other hand, there have been posted official de-installation instructions somewhere on the ORBX forums.


Kind regards, Michael
