Anyone know if we will need, and get, an updated installer for V3?

I would check Carenado's site, in their support forum.

They have no support forum.  These are their support forums or what use to be their "official" support forums.  They decided to go to the trouble ticket system like most other developers and so we turned their forums into "unofficial" support forums.  Almost every developer no longer provides "official" support in forums anymore but all have gone to trouble tickets or e-mails.  Too many pirates steal their products and then come here to get support when things go wrong.  Now us members have to provide the support for them.

Vic, their installer has an option to install it in "Other" and then a browse button.  Maybe that will work.

My apologies to the OP if I led them astray.  It wasn't until a few minutes ago when I noticed that they only have an FAQ but no real forum.  My first instinct was to refer to the developer, but it's hard these days to recognize where support comes from.  I know AVSIM has "Unofficial" forums (which I thought Carenado was here), but in any case, I think you sent the OP down the right path now.

I got an answer from Carenado that simply said - Our products work in Version 3.

 

Puzzled.

Here's what I did to get the Phenom 100 installed in P3D3.

 

I still have P3Dv2.5 installed. If you choose "P3Dv2" in the Carenado installer it will install into v2 no matter where you try to point the installer. So fool it and install into a simulator you don't have on your computer. In my case it was FSX. Installer can't find the right directory and patiently waits for you to tell it where to go.

 

Don't see any reason this shouldn't work for the Phenom 300.

With the Phenom 300 I did just like that and it gives me an error about can´t find \appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\dll.xml

 

I don´t understand the FSX part

It's not worth the effort. You have to jump thru too many hoops to get the jet installed.

 

In my case the "carenavigraph. dll" prevented P3D3 from loading. Disabling that .dll gets the sim running and the Phenom will fly but without any navaids, airports, etc. Pretty much useless unless you want to go sightseeing.

 

I did this using the Carenado Navigraph v1.1 extension which might be the problem. Maybe the stock v1.3 would work. Not worth it for me to find out.

I created a Prepar3D v2 folder and dll.xml and fooled it into installing into that but as Jay says, the carenavigraph.dll stops P3D3 from starting. It works ok if you stop the carenavigraph.dll from loading so it is not compatible with P3D3.

Hi Vic,

 

Regarding my earlier post where I stated the installer had an option for browsing to the folder and then installing.  I tried that too and it did not work BUT just found the installation folder in C:\Program Files(x86)\Carenardo Installer.  Basically you just move those folder over into P3Dv3.  It worked for me!  FPS in v3 are much better.  At FlightBeam's KIADHD, I had 23 fps in the VC.  Never saw the frames so high in the VC at KIAD before!!

 

EDIT:  Forgot to add I had made several attempts to get this installed using the Carenado installer for this aircraft and I finally got an error that stated I had exceeded the number of allowed installations.  I have sent them a support request to find out why I cannot install it any longer.  I should be able to install it 150,000 times!

 

Best regards,

Hey Jim,

 

Can you explain beginning to end how you got it work?  Appreciate it.

 

I wonder if Fscubed is worth getting for migrating addons between versions? sounds like a very simplified program, without having to install everything from scratch.

Some programs are not meant to be migrated between versions.  In this case, Carenado indicated the Phenom was compatible with v3.

 

All you need to do is run the installer for the Phenom300.  Enter your license and e-mail.  When it comes to the screen for determining which product to install to, click on the browse button and browse to your P3Dv3 installation.  When finished, you will not see the product installed in P3Dv3 but the files are all located in C:\Program Files(x86)\Carenado Installation.  It will have a folder for fonts, one for effects, sound, one for gauges, etc., etc.  Just move those files over to your installation of P3Dv3.

 

This should work until they update their installer if they plan on doing that.

Hmm, didn't work for me.  I installed to P3Dv3 directory, but there's no carenado install folder.  I installed P3D v3 to a different drive letter my H:\P3D  folder.  Maybe that's why.  Guess I'll keep trying but may need to wait until Carenado updates their installers 

 

UPDATE:  I got it to work.  Instead of browsing to your P3D v3 folder, just type in c:\  in the install location box. Important, Do not select any of the fsx or p3d locations above the box, Leave them blank.  It will then do as Jim said, it will put the files in C:\Program Files(x86)\Carenado Installation.  Thanks again Jim.  :D

I'm having the same problem, tried copying all the files over to p3dv3 folder. When in SIM, it won't let me select any airports from the MFD flp, just has 0.0 on the panel.  Hopefully be able to figure this one out.

I have not been able to get it to work.  I installed it to v3 as I did with the Phenom300 above.  I found the folders in the C:\Program Files(x86)\Carenado Installers but I cannot figure it out.  I have it installed in FSX too and none of those folders are in FSX.  It's possible the folders are temporary and will be removed after the navdata has been updated and put into a gauge or dll.  But how that is done is beyond me.

Yeah, i've been trying for quite a while today.  Sometimes the Phenom 300 isn't even in the airplane list to choose from within P3D.  

 

I submitted a ticket to Carenado, to ask when P3Dv3 support will be available.  I'll post here when they get back to me.
