Update info

Postby Mastah » Tue Oct 22, 2019 4:25 pm

Hey guys,

sorry but I'm a bit lost. Should I download and reinstall the whole prepar3d to update it to 4.5 (got 4.4 currently), or is there any way to download just the update?

Thank you vm

You can choose to install the entire update or only the client. The entire update includes the client, content, and scenery. You can view the entire list of changes categorized by component here: https://prepar3d.com/SDKv4/prepar3d/wha ... w_v45.html.

If you feel that the content and scenery updates are not important in your case you can choose to only update the client. To do this expand the "Individual Component Downloads" section in the Downloads page and download the Install_Client.msi: https://prepar3d.com/purchased_downloads/. Instructions on installing updates can be found in our release posts: https://prepar3d.com/news/2019/09/115750/.
