Recommended Posts

Downloaded the newest MCE and tried to install but after removing all traces of the old version the new one still states that is will not install because there is a previous version of the old version on my pc.......where?

The correct procedure for upgrade is as follows.

Un-install previous version via Windows control panel.

Do not manually delete anything.

Download new version, unzip and run "InstallMCE".

Since you already deleted things manually, here is how you can recover.

Instead of running "InstallMCE", open "Resources" folder and run "xPack.msi".

That will get MCE installed, but the new dlls supposed to go into the flight sim folder won't be copied.

Therefore, un-install then re-install according to procedure above.

If still no luck, run Windows tool "regedit" and search for FS++

When the key is found, you'll see a sub-key named "Multi Crew Experience".

Delete it and you can re-install.
