What if (like the word not allowed I am!), I click Yes to deregistering...?!

No problem, you just need to reauthorise with your licence details when installing. It just adds an extra 1 minute step, no great drama.

Did the same...but I thought both files got deleted and new ones get installed....

Your created files will not be deleted. 

If you want to get rid of them for a more clean install, you run the provided batch file: P3D\Delete Generated Files.

I did not do this, as I don't want to lose controller files etc

Best to leave NVidia 3D settings alone in Prepar3d v5.

Also, whilst there may be a tiny, theoretical risk of malware problems with using "install as administrator" with the P3D installer, this has been standard practice for years with FSX and P3D, and I would definitely still recommend that people install this way. In fact, I've never heard an argument against doing this and it's been SOP since FSX at least.

Just to correct this a bit: if you did not touch your UAC, then you will receive an elevated prompt when installing P3D/FSX, which absolutely same as if you did not do it, and confirmed the elevated prompt. The problem arises when people start lowering the UAC, which is a complete nonsense.

For those wondering how to install HF2, I did the following (as per Nick from Orbx's instructions for HF1:

1. using the Windows control panel, uninstall the P3D client and when asked if you want to deregister P3D v5, answer No.

2. Then uninstall the content and then the scenery and finally the top P3D v5 entry in the Windows control panel.

3. Delete your Prepar3d config file: C:\Users\your user account name\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Prepar3D.cfg file

4. Delete your shaders: C:\Users\your user account name\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Shaders.

5. Run your newly downloaded and unzipped Setup_Prepar3D.exe as an administrator.

This will take about 20-30 minutes, but most of the time you can be doing something else. If you're worried - it's really not very scary at all! I personally did not back up any files during this process.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My findings so far:

  • Addons such as FSUIPC working fine.
  • Performance seems great: F-32 at default location at settings, on the ramp frames peaking just above 200 FPS, in flight I'm getting peak frames of over 400 FPS!
  • Overall, very happy with HF2 after about an hour of test-flight time.

Recommendation:

  • It's a keeper!

What are you referring to when you say:  "finally the top P3D v5 entry in the Windows control panel".   What are you referring to there?

Can you give me details on this one? Send me a PM with a video so I can pass it on directly to LM devs.

Stan, there are 4 entries in your "Add or remove programs" list for P3D:

1. Prepar3d v5 academic

2. Academic client

3. Content

4.Scenery

I'm referring to item 1. So best practice is to uninstall 2,3,4 then 1.

I don't have academic.  I have Professional.  Are you saying to completely remove Professional?  Wouldn't that be a total uninstall and make me have to install all my addon sceneries and planes?

I did a Client, Content, and Scenery uninstall and reinstall.  I deleted my shaders, and renamed my CFG so that a new one was generated.

I think Pete is actually pointing out that he isn’t managing FSUIPC anymore it’s his son John and he wishes people would get that.

Joe

Joe, since you quoted my post: For you to know I got that before Pete posted in this thread, we've known each other's names online since circa 2006 or so. So that was not a news about John for me but I knew Pete followed this forum and would comment here earlier. However in my original post I misspelled Pete's last name and had to apologize. Do you get that altogether with my quote now, Joe?

Or save a lot of faffing, just uninstall 1. The rest follow meekly

install the complete shebang. Fire up P3Dv5. and you'll find all your stuff still there. P3D only uninstalls that which is P3D's

Yeah, that's my standard approach too, Ron, and what I've always done before.

Nick from Orbx said to do it the way I posted here, though, so for Hotfix 2 I thought I'd do it the way I described, just in case Orbx knows something I don't! 🙂
