P3D 2.5 ORBX Installer - DVD

Recommended Posts

Hi, trying to install ORBX Wales into P3D from the DVD, so its version 1.0.  However when installing for P3D it doesnt recognise the install path for P3D and there is no way to manually select it

 

Is there a way round this to get it to recognize the install location?

Hi DJ, 

 

The Flightsimstore has a real nice program that allows you to convert your DVD purchases to up-to-date downloads. You just take a picture of your case, against a current newspaper, and for less than 3 bucks you get a download link.

 

If you purchased your DVD from the Flightsimstore it is even better: you just "repurchase" your software and upgrade from DVD to download for free.

 

Check out the Flightsimstore site (it seems to be the default Orbx store) for details.

Hi, thanks for the help. I actually managed to get round it by modifying the registry for FSX.  

 

The registry is now pointing to the P3D Folder for all FSX installations.  When I ran the ORBX installer and chose install for FSX, it shows the P3D path and installs into P3D :)

 

Tool can be found here called FSX Registry Utility.

 

Thanks

 

Dave
