Updating from 5.1 to 5.2

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but it's not clear to me. I know I have to download and install the full sim again ( I didn't do 5.2 before the hotfix, so I'm installing hotfix 1 straight up. What isn't clear: do I delete the entirety of v5.1 first? In other words, I'm downloading 5.2/hotfix now, do I then uninstall 5.1 and then install 5.2/HF afresh?

Here's another guide...a bit more up to date.  https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/192424-installing-a-p3d-v5-hotfix-or-update-correctly/

Also, if you have LatinVFR KFLL or any acft with the Milviz wx radar installed, uninstall them or they will cause 5.2 to CTD.  There's a new 5.2 compatible version of KFLL on the LatinVFR site, and no update available for the Milviz radar.
