Trying to install the update

Recommended Posts

I think I have screwed up the update.  Before installing the update I deleted the original installation then installed the update.  It is not starting.

If this is true how do I download and install the original release?

Thanks for any help.

Ray,

Sorry about that. I am trying to install Prepar3D V4 latest update.  I had the original version installed but deleted it to install the V4 update.  Now nothing will install correctly.

Thanks for your reply,

Tom

Tom,

I’m still not entirely clear about your situation. But if you want to upgrade just the client of P3D v4.x to 4.3 these instructions from L-M should help.

If that doesn’t help then you probably need to run the original installer then follow the link to update the client to 4.3.

Common mistake.  All you need to uninstall is the client and then install the latest version.  I'm still recovering from Thanksgiving too.  At one time last night I couldn't see whether I was wearing a belt or not...  But, always great to get together with friends and family at least once a year!

Jim,

Thanks for the info.  I had a hard time finding my belt also...grin.

I don't know how I did it but I have the latest version of Prepar3D V4 up and running.  All I did was just keep stumbling around and "voila", it was suddenly installed and running.

Thanks,

 

Tom
