Conflict with FSX and P3D

Recommended Posts

I am with FSX and want to change for P3D. Any conflict to have both on the

same computer. I want FSX just the time I will be ok with P3D. I know I will

need to buy some new planes like the 737 from PMDG.

I've got them both installed with no issues

Same here, P3D and FSX:SE both installed with no problems. Several addons are also shared between them.

hello,

 

The 2 sims are totally independent. I have them on the same computer with no issues at all.

Hello Pierre:

 

Just to confirm what many have said, I have installed the three sims (FSX, X-Plane and P3D - the last one three days ago) on one drive andthey are all happily doing their thing.

 

X-Plane is so "out there", that it has had its own add-ons developed and you install them according to their instructions.

 

Having read the instructions for some add-ons that work on both FSX and P3D, and having read the comments in this forum, I have created separate folders for the respective add-ons. For example "IVAO-FSX" and "IVAO-P3D", "VPilot-FSX" and "Vpilot-P3D", even if it meant just copying the add on onto the different folder. Then I install all the FSX ones from the FSX folders and the P3D ones from the P3D.

 

Today I was wonderfully surpirsed to find out that 99% of my FSX sceneries, work in P3D.

 

And yes, I bought the PMDG B737-800 for P3D and it works fine with all my GoFlight modules.

 

You will enioy both ( or the three) of them.

Hello,

 

 

P3d was running. I paused it and then I launched FSX. I got a message saying: microsoft flight simulator is already running!!!????

How come?

I have seen the same thing, but you have to wait at least ten seconds for the other sim to totally terminate.
