Can FSX and FS2020 co-exist?

Recommended Posts

Searched and got no hits on this topic.  Does anyone know if FSX and FS2020 can exist on the same computer or is it one or the other?

Yes they can. In fact as long as you have space, you can have FSX, FSX SE, P3D V3 v4 & V5, XPlane, etc.

Enjoy them all!

Probably yes, but they won't like each other very much. 😊

It's sure, yes. MSFS is a completely new software and it has nothing to do with FSX. But I think, if you try MSFS, there will be not any way back to FSX 🙂

I'll vouch for that, I have FSX, P3Dv3, P3Dv4, P3Dv5, X-plane, Aerofly FS2 and the MFS beta all living together happily on a single drive.

If you have the space you can keep an old sim around for reference.  Say for trying to duplicate an old behavior in FS2020.

It won't be long before it becomes irrelevant but just leave it and do a full new install on a super-fast NV-ME drive.

Cheers

Actually, some of Rod's ground school material in FSX makes for good reference material.

I'm actually thinking about reinstalling P3D 4 with some of my OrbX stuff, simply for screenshot comparisons of particular regions.

I can get back to that question years ago. FSX is a relic.
