Fresh Install of P3Dv4.1 and does not ask to backup shaders - gives errors in the tool

Recommended Posts

So, I had P3D v4.1 working fine with a preset I liked - I upgraded P3D to v4.2 and the PTA tool too. But preset was giving errors, so I thought I would revert back to older version and back to v4.1 P3D.

I uninstalled ALL of P3D and re-installed. When running PTA Tool, it shows errors like this one...

ERROR applying preset: source file C:\Users\XXXXX\Desktop\Flight Sim Stuff\PTA2\SHADERS_BACKUP\General.fx not found

Looking in the backup folder it has nothing in there as they got deleted - but it also does not ask for me to create a new backup as it's a fresh install?

Any help would be great!

If your backup and your shader folder are both gone the only way to go is to run the P3D client installer. That restores the original shader files.
