Hardware changes - what is critical to uninstall/deactivate?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My PC has been giving me grief and I'm going to bite the bullet and reformat and reinstall windows and add a new SSD or M2 drive.  I don't want to mess with any licenses, so are there packages that absolutely require uninstall and deactivation besides prepar3d itself and PMDG products?  What about MSFS - I've uninstalled it, but I'm not sure what to do with "digital ownership"...

Any tips appreciated from anyone with experience here.

TIA,

CVG

I guess anything that requires activation, and anything you purchased via Flight1 and/or Orbx. This covers almost everything payware.

My rig: ASUS TUF FX504GD (Intel i5 8300H @ 2.3-4.0 GHz, limited at 3.7 GHz; 2x8 GB DDR4-2666 RAM; Nvidia GTX 1050 2 GB; 256 GB M.2 SSD + 1 TB SATA III SSD as storage; Windows 10 Home)

Saitek X-52 as primary controller. Xbox 360 wired and eDimensional G-Pad Pro wired controllers as standby/travel. Viewsonic VX2458-MHD 1920x1080@30-144 Hz 🙂

Finally moved to P3D4.5. Also running FSX-SE, FS9 and XP11 Vulkan. Tried MSFS2020, but my rig isn't up to the task. What do I do with 4 sims now?

Actually, if Orbx libraries are not on the C drive, you can leave them be and when you have your new C drive up and running, log into Orbx Central and do a file verification on each of your sceneries/products. That avoids the download.
