SP1 -Clean Install

Recommended Posts

I currently have a clean install of FSX. Would adding additional aircraft only still be considered a clean install? At present I have made no other changes to FSX while awaiting the release of SP1. Maybe if you see this Phil you could chime in.

I think Phil said that the update will work as long as you don't modify any of the original files in FSX. Adding aircraft probably won't affect it.

Should be just fine to add aircraft, scenery etc. that does not touch the original files.-Doug@ACES

Most changes will have taken place in texture or scenery folders, so you could just rename them, then run a repair install from the DVD. But if a repair install does replace existing modified files of the same name with originals, then you might not even need to do that?Allcott

Does 'clean install' even refer to changes in FSX.cfg? I cant imagine that it wouldbut all this talk makes me wonder.The only files I know of that have changed for me is when I installedHorizon VFR but I made backups despite the installers effort to overwrite them.(Horizon should fix that).there is also the dll.xml file that was edited so as to enable the SDK tools. will that also matter?
