Installation Order - MD11, 737NGX, 777, etc...

Recommended Posts

So I caved in and ordered a boxed copy of the MD-11X from a reputable flight simulation retailer (*only had a few left! get yours today!). I'm planning on a full system refresh and bounce down to Windows 7 and FSX to make use of her, but I have a question as to the order of installation.

 

Are there any known "order-of-installation" issues present with the legacy aircraft (MD-11 and/or 747) as it relates to the newer 737 and newer still 777?  Or, should I be comfortable in installing the newer ones first while I wait for the delivery man to bring the MD-11 to my doorstep?

 

Just curious if anyone had any feedback on the topic.

 

Thanks,

-Greg Germanowski

They're all self-aware (*chuckles*), so there won't be a conflict. The MD-11 uses an entirely different methodology compared to the newer stuff, anyway (PMDG Options in the drop down menus, under Add-Ons).

 

Be forewarned, however, that advances in hardware are rendering some of the DLLs for our older products wholly incompatible (one of the reasons we stopped offering them).

Kyle, could you elucidate a bit on that last sentence - what hardware has caused incompatibilities?

No idea - we never traced it down to specific components.

 

The only thing I can narrow it down to, though, is "new." By new, I mean very recent, because this issue has been relatively recent in the support queue.
