Will X-plane 11 install over XPX?

I wouldn't think so. I would think it would create all kinds of conflicts.

Highly unlikely. It'd probably have its own dedicated installer, and work just like how X-Plane 10 did over 9...

It's likely that X-Plane 11 could be installed alongside X-Plane 10 (I'm referring to the Laminar versions, not to the Steam versions).

 

Historically, X-Plane has always been a 100% "self-contained" product, i.e. not touching Windows registry. It's just a big single folder, so if you install X-Plane 10 and 11 in 2 different folders, there's no reason it should cause any conflicts.

That's also what I would think. You can even have several diefferent installations of X-Plane 10 on the same machine (each in it's own folder of course) to have different versions, betas, configurations etc. for testing purposes. So I think it will be just as easy to have X-Plane 10 stable, 11 stable and 11 beta all on the same machine without any ill side effects.

 

Of course you might burn some activations for your addons if you install them in more than one copy of X-Plane.
