upgrading of p3d licencing

Recommended Posts

Hi

Apologies if this has been asked or already covered.

I have the 777 for p3d 2.X and I'm looking to upgrade to v3 hopefully, but I have a question regarding the licencing and  getting different versions of P3d.

 

When I originally bought P3d I was covered by the Academic licence,

and my PMDG 777 was bought for P3d on that version.

However I'm now very close to becoming ineligible for the Academic licence so will most likely buy the professional version.

 

If I purchase the Professional version of P3D v3 will my copy of the 777 still work ok in this version of P3D, or must I remain on the academic version for 777 to work

 

Thanks

As far as I know P3D Academic and Professional are identical products except of course the license with LM Aero. It should not effect your installs of PMDG products as I believe it is just looking for the install directories and makes a determination that way. Many of the beta testers have either version or even developer and I have never heard of an issue of what P3D you have other than the true version number. (i.e. P3D v1 / v2 / v3) Also know that RSR has posted that if you have v3 and v2 on that the "to be released" installers will only install to v3 and not v2.

PS - I am impressed with your ethics! A lot of people will buy the Academic version and are not truly students.

The version of license between yourself and LM for P3D is, naturally, an agreement between you and LM. The license between yourself and PMDG is, similarly, an agreement between you and PMDG. The license you have from PMDG does not reference any of the licensing complexities between you and LM. In other words, as noted on our product page, the license is compatible with any licensing level between you and LM.

 

Smart move in checking, though!
