Uninstall issue

Recommended Posts

This is just FYI as I will reinstall to correct the issue.

Had P3D4+ and P3D5 installed. Had 441, Falcon50 and LJ35A installed for both. Uninstalled P3DV4 and through control panel uninstalled the v4 versions of all a/c.  Started P3D v5 - 441 is only a/c that showed. Looking in simobjects I can see folders for 441, F50 and LJ35 - 441 is OK, F50 just has a panel folder and some .bak files and the LJ35 has everything BUT the aircraft.cfg file. My guess is the uninstaller got confused.

Thanks -- I'll make sure Mark sees this. Just to clarify, I understand you uninstalled P3Dv4 first, and then the aircraft.

First off uninstalling p3d v4 has nothing to do with this issue.

Saying that i also found that when i uninstalled v4.5 it removed v5 but not the v5 uninstaller. So i checked for mistakes and found none. So i tested by installing both again and un installing each and neither would remove the other. And so it all worked as it should. So i wonder if customers who has installed a product with an older version of the installer then used the new installer to install v5 would then get this issue. If this is true there is nothing i can do as the code for un installing each version has its own info. So for now this is the first i heard of it. And if anyone else would like to do some testing they may find the same result.
