Installing a second P3D on computer

Postby annber4458 » Mon Oct 21, 2019 5:21 pm

I currently have a developer version, 4.3, which I obviously have not updated to the current version. My first thought was to update it this past weekend, but then I got to thinking of all the test addons I have currently installed for my scenery development, and got worried.
Here is my question, can I purchase a second development license for the newest P3D version and install it on the same computer but on a separate drive, while keeping the older 4.3 version untouched for the time being.
That will allow me to slowly migrate all my addons to the new version without worrying about erasing anything.
Thanks for any feedback you might provide.

Two different versions of the same major release (4.3 & 4.5) cannot be installed on the same machine, even on different drives. Different releases (v4 & v3) however can be installed on the same machine.
