Uninstall FSUIPC before SP1?


Recommended Posts

Phil Taylor's blog instructions for SP1 installation suggest uninstalling all 3rd party add-ons that might install dll's. Shall I assume that this includes FSUIPC along with 3rd party aircraft etc? Also, IIRC, if I do uninstall FSUIPC I should copy my .key file prior to doing same. Correct?

Thanx!

You don't need to uninstall anything related to FSUIPC. You should install version 4.10, but it doesn't matter if you do this before installing SP1 or after. FSUIPC will not crash FSX SP1 nor will any of its needed files get destroyed by installing SP1.

The DLLs which are certainly not compatible are those related to the SDK. f you installed the SDK with its modules such as the Traffic Explorer, then you should install SP1, then install the SDK SP1A update before running FSX again.

I understand there are some other third party DLLs which might cause problems unless updated -- FSCopilot, possibly, for example, but I'm not sure of the details. Anything only using FSUIPC will be okay.

Oh, I don't think you need worry about 3rd party aircraft either.

Perhaps this is a VERY stupid question - but it does not appear to have been answered anywhere else.

Is it necessary to UNINSTALL the SDK prior to installation of the intallation of SP1 followed by SDK SP1A?

I find TRAFFIC EXPLORER so useful it is a program I could not (easily) do without.

No. Don't do that. If you uninstall the SDK the SP1A SDK installer will tell you it can't install because you haven't got the original. It checks that you have the original installed, THEN it does the uninstall and installs the new one.
