dual install

Recommended Posts

Hello, as I understand It i can install the new  P3d v3 along side my current P3d v2.5 on my 2TB WD black hard drive,if this is the case how difficult will it be to use a Symbolic link from my existing Orbx scenery installed in Pd3 v2.5 folder to the new P3d V3 install,is this likely to be possible and apart from all that uninstalling and reinstalling,I am really happy with the way Orbx is performing at this moment,I may consider reinstalling at a later date,is this possible with both versions on the same HD

many thanks

peter

You may have better luck getting that answer from the ORBX forum.

Orbx has already announced that they will be providing new installers for V3. They do not support using symbolic links.I suggest you wait for the updated installers.

hesynergy thanks FScubed is looking very good and certainly well priced,if I read it correctly all UK 2000 Airports and Orbx scenery and Mesh including  associated  folders files etc will be compressed and saved!,seems just back up and then install directly into P3d V3 ,does that sound about right or am I reading it wrong,I believe I read that Orbx mentioned that they were looking at symbolic links,but I cant seem to find the comment most probably wished it,I was hoping someone else had read it also
