    P3D separate install on different drives

    Hello Vic Yes we are saying the same thing. 1 License of Prepar3D Entitles you to Install 1 copy of Prepar3D on 1 machine. For example 1 License of Prepar3D v4 entitles you to Install 1 copy of Prepar3D v4 on 1 machine. 2 copy of Prepar3D v4 on the same machine will not function due to the register key's being tied to only one version. If a user has a License for Prepar3D v3 & v4 they can Install together as they will coexist (work) on the same machine no problem

    P3D separate install on different drives

    Hello Bill You can only Install one version of Prepar3D v3 or v4 on the same machine, You can not Install 2 of the same versions of Prepar3D on one computer. But you can Install Prepar3D v3 & v4 on the same computer as they can coexist no problem together
  11. Hello Don't worry about not being able to find the 2 files because you have already run the Delete generated files command Yes ? And this will remove all generated files ------------ If you were missing a Default Prepar3D yellow folder in the core location this would also give this Issue Can you see all 18 default yellow folders below in your core folder --------------------------------- Have you tried deleting the Prepar3D v4 Add-on's folders and the Prepoar3D v4 files folder in your Documents location ? -------------- You could Delete the complete Scenery folder above and then run a repair in the Windows Control Panel, Delete the Scenery folder, Then Right click on Prepar3D v4 Scenery and click Repair This will not effect any Add On's really. You will just need to reinstall Orbx Global base if you have it
  12. Hello Try these (In this order) 1) Disable any Antivirus Software you may, Then launch Prepar3D and test, If successful Insure you add the complete core Prepar3D folder to the Exclusions Zone.

  13. Hello A small tip for anybody wondering (Like Me) Why your GTX Graphics card is over heating when Idle just surfing the Web. I have a 980ti and noticed with EVEGA Precision opened my Temps were heating to 75 C just browsing the web really. Initially I couldn't figure out why my card was getting so hot, It should Idle at 39 C with no fans running at all. It turns out I had "Preferred Maximum Performance" turned on in the NVidia Control Panel (Gaming Mode) This was set in Global Settings and not to an Individual Program, Meaning my card was always running on Maximum Power (Maximum heat) I turned this back to the default "Optimal Power" and restarted my computer and my Temps Immediately fell back to 39 C even with no fans running And that's was it, Just a small Tip but made me worry my Graphics card was on its way out Right click on your Desktop click into NVidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Global and scroll down to "Power Management Mode" Click "Optimal Power" and click Apply (Bottom right) When finished, Restart your computer If you have a Program you want to run on Maximun Power, Like Prepar3D, You can set this up in the Program Settings and not in Global Settings Note Ensure you also Adjust your fans for the extra heat , Or set up an Automatic Fan Curve In EVEGA Precision to kick in when the heat rises

    P3d v4.2 exe

    Hello Mike Try these steps one by one......... 1) Regardless weather or not this will fix your Issue, Delete the Shaders folder and the Prepar3D.cfg file and let Prepar3D generate these again when launched next. 2) Do you have any FSDT Add On's, If so please See Here 3) Right click and Rename your 2 dll.xml files, the one in ProgramData and AppData\Roaming, Then launch Prepar3D, Shut it down and test ? Does this work ? 4) Right click and Rename your 2 exe.xml files, the one in ProgramData and AppData\Roaming. Then launch Prepar3D, Shut it down and test ? Does this work ? If Renaming any of these files resolved your Issue you can then look closer at your Utility Add On's You can just simply rename these files back again when you are finished
