Update notifications ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm a new to PMDG so please forgive me if I ask something silly but when new updates come out will there be some notification please ? A pop up when the aircraft is loaded or e-mail perhaps ? Or should I check these forums once in a while ? Will update notifications be posted here ? I understand there already was one hotfix released but I don't see any notification thread here.

Here or on our Facebook page.

 

The update was a soft update. We'll announce an update once the official one releases.

Do you have to un-install the previous product before installing with the new update?

Yes though apparently you can use the old installer to update. Not sure if it's the same.

Since it's a full installer, I would recommend it.

To be clear, you download using the existing download link, but you should not attempt to use the old installer to update. It will be the same file name, but you only want to use the one you just downloaded.

Can I just copy/paste my livery folders to the new updated DC-6 instead of re-downloading and installing?

You should be able to but this update concerns livery issues so I'm not sure.
