Finding old P3D version on my computer

Recommended Posts

While installing a newer version of FSUIPC the installer said it found both P3D v4 and P3D v5 on my computer. I am now currently using P3D v5.3 and I had no idea I still had v4 files on my computer. I searched my computer for anything with P3D v4 but could find anything (I probably didn't search very good). Where would old P3D v4 files be hiding?

Could be a Windows registry entry that didn't remove during the V4 uninstall. 

Check if you have these registry paths

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Lockheed Martin \ Prepar3D v4 \ SetupPath

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Lockheed Martin \ Prepar3D v4 \ AppPath

In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Lockheed Martin \ Prepar3D v4 \ AppPath path there was nothing with P3D v4, just v5. In the HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Lockheed Martin \ Prepar3D v4 \ AppPath there was a P3D v4 folder along with P3D v2, 3, and 5 folders (I never bought P3D v2 or 3). Do I delete the whole folders?

Delete the V4 folder in the app path. That's what addons look at when installing to see what version you're running. As always, backup your registry before editing as precaution.

Unless it's causing a specific problem, I'd just leave it alone.
