UPGRADING FROM 4.28 TO 4.40


Recommended Posts

I have researched other posts butfound nothing similar to my question.

I have a registered copy of 4.28. I downloaded the 4.40 version and ran the installer, I clicked on something like "Keep Registration" or something similar and the program completely overwrote my previous version and ended up having no registration codes. I then deleted all the FSUIPC files in the modules folder of FSX and reinstalled my 4.28 with my registration key and I tested it and it works great.

Well, this peaked my curiosity and I again deleted in the modules folder related to 4.28. I again ran the installation program for 4.40 but this time I clicked on "enter registration key" and it responded with "This key does not work on this newer version" or something to that effect.

Sorry, I'm doing this by memory instead of intelligently writing notes.

Finally I went back to 4.28 because I know it works.

In fs2004 it was real easy: just download a new version and copy the FSUIPC.DLL to the modules folder. How do we do this in FSX or am I missing something.

Thank you for your help!

You must have selected the option to Delete the previous registration, which is present to make it easy for folks who need to change one to match the other. The two other options are to enter new registrations, or merely to check them.

And all three options can be bypassed by simply opting to cancel that specific offer. The installation will complete without touching or looking at any keys.

In other words you have total flexibility. It only does what you ask it to do, no more and no less.

There is no such message, and there have been absolutely no changes to the registration system or the keys between 4.28 and 4.40. In fact there have never been ANY changes whatsoever in registration apart from the movement of the place to register from the FSUIPC options to the installer.

If your keys are no longer accepted it can only be because they have been explicitly withdrawn by request of SimMarket. If you believe this not to be the case, please ZIP your FSUIPC4.KEY file and send it to me for checking. Send to petedowson@btconnect.com.

Unless you keep your version of FSUIPC4 up to date you will get no support.
