PMDG on v4.5 & v5 on same machine?

Recommended Posts


I‘ve got the PMDG 747 installed on v4.5 an would like to install it again on the same PC ( but on a different SSD ) parallel under v5 for testing purposes.

Am I right that this is not possible, as the installer gives me only the options to modify / repair / or remove the 747? 
There‘s no option for installation only...

Best regards,

I believe PMDG updated their installer recently so that you can either install one or the other or select both.

The latter means at installation selecting both options.

More info can be found on the PMDG forum.

You have to remove old installs completely and then do tandem new install with the sims offered. The POC will update later then both sims in parallel. Liveries can be installed per sim.
