Hi Luis

Maybe you will get more answers, but personally I rename the old folder FSC to FSC86 before launching the new FSC90

setup.

On my machine, both versions of FSC work.

For now I did not have to worry about flight plans because my FS9.0 version is still under evaluation , I will buy once resolved small registration problems, and some minor bugs.

My system

1. FS2004(FS9)

2. FSUIPC 3.90 / WideFS 6.78

3. FS Commander 9.0 build 11/11/2010

Database Manager 9.0 4. download version from FSC website

5. Operating System (Windows XP sp3 on wideclient PC Windows XP sp2 on FS2004 PC)

From the readme file in the download

------------------------------

IMPORTANT FOR USERS OF v. 8.x

------------------------------

If you are a user of any version 8.x, you can install version 9.0 in addition to

v. 8.x, however, make sure that 9.0 is installed in a folder different from the

one of v. 8.x.

If you have installed 9.0 and subsequently want to get rid of v. 8.x, DO NOT

USE the deinstallation routine, but rather simply delete the 8.x folder.

Conversely, if you have installed 9.0, but don't like it and therefore want

to return to 8.x and get rid of 9.0, DO NOT USE the deinstallation routine, but

rather simply delete the 9.0 folder.

The reason is that 8.x and 9.0 share certain system files (*.ocx and *.dll),

so if you deinstall one of the two, the other will no longer run.

Have fun
