What to delete when updating

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Am going to update to ver.3.4.18.19475 and as per previous updates am removing the client in programs and features.

Looking at that folder I also see besides the P3D academic client a file called P3D Academic which is ver. 3.2.3.16769. (install date 15/8/2016)

Do I need to remove that as well or do I leave that one alone?

 

My scenery and content version are the same 3.2.3.16769 ( install date 23/3/2016 )

 

Would it ruin my setup if it's removed.

 

Please let me know.

 

Regards

The following 3 Entries in your Control Panel make up a Complete Prepar3D v3 Install.

The Entry just called "Prepar3D v3 Academic" Or Professional is just the Installer (Setup.exe) The Setup.exe Installs all 3 Component Installers together,  You can Ignore this Entry in your Control Panel

Thanks Elaine,

 

Your explanation on this is sublime. http://www.avsim.com...ent-installers/

I've bookmarked it for future use.

I will just do the client install as there are rumours going around that LM might be releasing a 64 bit version in the new year.

 

Thanks for your reply, much appreciated.

Merry Christmas
