Xplane 11 & P3D v4 in same computer

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am a developer of scenery for FSX & P3D, and I am starting to take the steps needed to convert them to Xplane 11. I am concerned about installing Xplane in the same system where I have P3D installed. The last thing I need is for something to screw my P3D install, so my question to you all, can Xplane11 and P3D co-exist in the same computer? Can they do so in the same drive? Should they be in diferent drives? Can I install Xplane11 on a portable drive?

Anyone with experience having both simulators please give me feedback, much appreciated.

Bernardo.

No issues at all.  I run that exact combination.  XP11 is much less invasive than P3D/FSX.  It's self contained in one folder and you can usually move it around with issues.

Hi Bernardo, I have both P3D and XP11 on same drive and haven't had any issues with either one. Seems to work fine, go for it.

XP will not touch any of your system files , it might just stored a few .prf files under Appdata\Local. 

nothing to worry

I jumped ship from FSX and one of the pleasures of XP11 is that its a very neat installation. In fact it doesnt even "install" into Windows. Its like a big portable installation. All addons, tweaks, everything goes under the XP11 root. 

Its SO much cleaner than what I had to deal with in FSX with (in true MS fashion) scattered stuff into app data local, program files, my documents, program data, etc. Messy. 

You can have FSX, DCS, p3D, XP11 all on the same computer no issues. XP11 "keeps to itself " :D
