How do I point my previously addons to FSX SE

Recommended Posts

the only thing that is preventing me on getting FSX SE is the thought  of losing all my  add-ons or having  to reinstall them all again is there anyway around this guys?


many thanks

It depends how much stuff you have, but it was no hardship for me really.  I did it in separate sittings, as it is best not to install too many in one go.  

 

I did hear of a program of the sort you want, but I think it might be to go from FSX to P3D actually, I can't remember now.  I think it might create payware registration problems trying to duplicate payware into the two FSX  versions.  And as for the licensing technicalities, That would be a minefield and would probably vary across the different products anyway.

 

As a tip, I uninstalled my old FSX install, as I will never go back to it.  FSX:SE with its fixes, optimisations, and with Steves DX10 fixer is awesome running in DX10 mode!

 

If you uninstall FSX, 90% of the add-ons automatically find FSX:SE, and the ones that don't, you just direct them to the FSX:SE root folder.  Not had any problems myself.  Loving it!

 

I have heard side by side installation of FSX and FSX:SE can create a few issues with some add-on installer programs, but is possible (and with P3D even).

However, uninstalling FSX after installing FSX:SE doesn't necessarily fix the issues; it is too late then.  Best to do some reading on the internet and then make your choice.

Personally, I have had no problems uninstalling FSX Acceleration, then putting on a clean install of FSX:SE.
