  1. Hello tristin-A1 Welcome to the Avsim Forums, All New members have there posts moderated before being approved
  2. Hello Randy To have a complete Prepar3D v3 or v4 Install you only need the Prepar3D Client, Content and Scenery present in the Control panel. The Prepar3D Academic \ Professional entry is the Base Installer that Installs all 3 components together as one, You will have this entry when you Install Prepar3D by running the Setup_Prepar3D.exe If you Install Prepar3D by running the 3 components Individually you will not have this entry in the Control panel
  3. Hello Stan Did you try the step i posted above If you are Installing Prepar3D into the same Drive \ Folder as previous there is no need to uninstall or move the Orbx folder as none of the 3 component Installers or running the Setup_Prepar3D.exe will touch the Orbx folder. You can do a complete uninstall and reinstall of Prepar3D and just reinstall Orbx Global Base + Orbx trees (If you have these Add On's) and then launch FTX central when finished Regarding Orbx scenery If you run into Issues Click Here for some steps you can take
  4. Hello Edward Could you expand on this a little ? Your Issue could be something simple
  5. Hello Stewart Have you deleted the Prepar3D.cfg file and let Prepar3D generated a default file when launched next ? --------- Before you reinstall Prepar3D Run a Repair through the Control Panel on each of the 3 components, Client, Content and Scenery Then launch Prepar3D and test -------- Do you have many Add On's apart from Orbx, ASN and Envdir ? I ask this because you could remove your generated folders and let Prepar3D generate these folders again as default. Note: As seen in the link below this will Disable all your Add On's and reset Prepar3D back to a default state also removing any Controls you have set up, You could back up your 2 Controls folder in both AppData\Local and AppData\Roaming if you want This will Not effect your Add On's using the Add-on.xml method in the Documents location Your Orbx Scenery will be fine as explained below. ASN simply needs to be launched after following these steps, I'm not sure about Envdir as I don't use it

  12. Hello Johnny FTX Orbx can comfortable survive either updating Prepar3D or completing a full uninstall and reinstall of Prepar3D. Note: Once you don't delete the Orbx folder in the core Prepar3D folder, This folder will remain untouched during either process The Topic below has some precautionary steps you take after updating or reinstalling Prepar3D, Read step 1 and 2
