    p3d V4 won't open, stuck on splash screen

    Hello Aaron In addition to your steps have you tried reinstalling the Client ? (Step 4 of your first link)
  2. Hello Pete Have a look at there steps one by one Did you remove all 5 generated file locations as seen from This Video and then test Prepar3D ? Do you have the Windows app FL Studio or even external USB Sound cards ? Have a look at This Post --- Temporarily Disable any Antivirus Software you may, Then launch Prepar3D and test. Note: If you using a software like BitDefender ensure you Temporarily turn off all Options and Modules If you are using Windows Defender temporarily Turn Off "Real Time Protection" then launch Prepar3D and test. --- Confirm your dedicated graphics card is set to properly execute Prepar3D. Some PC's and Laptops have dual cards, an on-board Integrated card and a dedicated high performance GTX \ AMD card. NVIDIA graphics cards: Open the NVIDIA Control Panel, select Manage 3D settings, and set the Preferred graphics processor to High-performance NVIDIA processor. AMD graphics card: Open the AMD Control Panel go to the Switchable Graphics tab, browse and locate the Prepar3D.exe and set it for High Performance and click Apply. Then to Graphics > PowerPlay - Set Plugged In and Battery to Maximum Performance and Click Apply. Restart your computer when you have applied the changes. --- As Howard has suggested, Uninstall and Reinstall the Prepar3D Client Only. Navigate to your Control Panel right click on Prepar3D Academic \ Professional Client and click Uninstall The Windows programs and features box will appear, Click Yes to uninstall the Client You will now to given the Option to "Deactivate" the prepar3D license, Click No The License will stay active Reinstall the Client again, Navigate to your Prepar3D download folder, Right click on Install_Client.msi and click Install --- Reinstall or Update your graphics driver. Ensure you Tick the Box for "Perform a clean Installation" when you are prompted the option during the driver Install process Also you can use a driver cleaning utility like Driver Display Uninstaller to remove your old driver and then proceed to Install the driver again

    New install P3Dv4

    Hello Tony You will mostly likely need an additional activation now, Send an email to licensing@prepar3d.com with a very brief explanation of the reason you need your license reactivated, along with your license ID and invoice number, and you should be up and running in under two business days. Holidays and weekends are not Included. After you send the email you should receive an Auto-responder reply, This reply is to let you know your request has been received successfully, Check your Trash and Spam box for this reply. Regarding the Individual Component Downloads section of your Prepar3D Account This is only relevant if you need this file (Setup_Prepar3D.exe) The option is there for users to download any additional files they require to complete a full Install package Or to update Prepar3D If you all ready have a complete Prepar3D v4.3 download you are good to go !

    Hello See I fixed it for ya ! [/img] You need to paste Image address between these [/img]
  9. Hello Mike Try these basic steps... If you are using Nvidia Inspector, Disable or Delete the Prepar3D profile. Then Reset your Nvidia values to default again, Launch the Nvidia control panel > Manage 3D Settings, Click Restore and Apply Restart your computer when you have applied the changes. Then launch Prepar3D and test after this --- You could also try updating or reinstalling your Graphics driver but using DDU Driver Display Uninstaller to remove your old driver first.

    P3dV4.....new computer

    Yes as Harry has stated above. You can also just Deactivate the Prepar3D Client on your current computer, this will release the license from your operating system. Then proceed to Install and activate Prepar3D on your new computer or drive. Please see This Post for steps to Deactivate the Client

    How much RAM do you have for P3D v4

    As the rest have posted, Yes 16 ram is loads for Prepar3D. On a side note though, My computer is now nearly 5 years old and has 16 of Ddr3 ram (slow ram for today) However I do use After effects and other Adobe stuff and these Apps are hard on memory ram, So when I treat myself to a new computer I will defo get 32 fast ram so i can potter around with my videos in extra comfort Currently I am only getting 8 (ish) seconds play back on full resolution using After effects
