Installing on a new system

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need to install P3DV4 on a new computer. Right now, I have very little installed on that system. It seems stable, so I think I am ready to go. It is a FS dedicated rig. UAC is disabled. I am not using any 3rd party virus protection - only what comes with Windows 10 pro. I have a couple questions.

1. What is the process I need to go through with the P3D license? I believe I recall that I have to deactivate the old system first.

2. Once I deactivate the old system, do I need to uninstall everything, or can I leave the files in place? I'd like to preserve the install, so I can move some of my files over to the new system. I really don't want to back everything up somewhere, because I don't know if I have the free drive space on the old system.

3. Aside from all of my drivers, is there anything I need to install on the new system before I install P3D.

Thanks for your help. Any additional advice is welcome.

Hmm, didn't realize all of the sickies moved to a tips and tricks forum (I have this forum bookmarked, and I it is my main destination on AVSIM).

Pretty sure at least a couple questions I asked are addressed in there, but any additional advice is still welcome.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you can deactivate and reinstall on a different computer keeping the old files on old system. Obviously, since it is deactivated, it will not run on the old system.

Thanks.

I think I'm all set with this question. I'd delete if I could.

Nonetheless, it is always fun to load the sim for the first time on a new system and see 250fps in 4k:)
