GPU upgrade and PMDG products

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a GTX 1060 6GB as an upgrade from my GTX 960 2GB.  I wanted to verify that I need to deactivate the licenses for each of my PMDG products prior to changing out the cards?  Is this required for just a video card upgrade?  I gotten away with it in the past without doing this process (video card swap only), so wanted to double check.

Thanks!

No, you do not need to deactivate your licenses for a GPU swap.

Next upgrade related question.  I didn't think it needed a new topic.  Upgrading from Windows 7 64 to Windows 10 64.  Not a fresh OS install, just the upgrade.  Do I need to do anything with PMDG licenses in that case?

Nope.  Refer to the Introduction documents... its a good idea to release the licenses then reactivate when done. I know its a requirement with reformatting or hardware changes so it's probably a safe thing to do with OS changes.
