PMDG MD-11 install, after 747v3 install?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I was wanting to install my PMDG MD-11, but I have just installed the 747v3 on release day, and wanted to check whether installing the legacy MD-11 after the 747v3 would screw anything up?

 

(I remember installing the old 747, after the 777 and I think I lost some menus, etc).

 

Thanks

would screw anything up?

 

Yes and no. Yes, it may screw things up because the old code is so old that it won't work on certain hardware/OSes. No, because it's entirely separate from the 744.

Thanks. No issues running it on my hardware in the past, so as long as it doesn't interfere with the 747's configuration, all sounds good!

Welcome! If you run into issues, simply uninstall and send us a ticket. We can remove some of the entries from your dll.xml to get the sim working again.

 

By the way, it isn't so much the hardware, as much as the drivers on the hardware. If Win Updates update your hardware's drivers, it could suddenly stop working.

Hi,

 

I've actually reinstalled my MD-11 earlier and haven't noticed any problems currently. I flew my 747 aswell and didn't seem to encounter any errors.

 

Thanks

Or...OR.....You guys can start updating the MD-11 again to keep it current.  You know minor fixes, new graphics, optimized coding....the simple stuff :-D beatdeadhorse.gif

Definitely the bat! I'm with you though. Love my MD-11 and now that I've recently made the move to P3D, lets just say the tricycle needs crutches.
