New version to 4.5

Postby garymccl » Fri May 10, 2019 2:36 pm

I'm sorry for this question, but I currently have a 4.4 version, and I see there is a 4.5 version to use. I used that but there was a problem and it was pointed out to me to that the file name (containing the version) is not correct at the moment and the update to v4.5 should be held off (although I don't where I would have to find a newer version!).

Can you let us know or put us on a mailing list for updates?

It's a shame not to have a reply to this. I downloaded 4.5, installed it, and it's caused problems. I've been told that a working version would be posted by this weekend, but I can't find reference to it on these forums. In the meantime, I can't find a way of flying with p3d because of the current faults.

Can you please let us know a release date.

Thank you

Don't know who told you that date. As a matter of policy, LM does not issue expected release dates. There was a post on Avsim which turned out to be fake.

In that case I think I have stuffed up my install. I use the current downloadable version and I'm getting errors. On top of that I've stupidly done with all 3 install points when I'm upgrading previously.

I guess I should try and get it working.

If you try to install v4.5 on top of your existing v4.4 you will get the version mismatches that you are seeing. You have to uninstall the existing component (client, content and/or scenery) before you install the new one.
