PC format and saving FSUIPC settings

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have to format my PC and I would absolutely not want to lose the settings saved in FSUIPC5 (registered).

What is the correct procedure?

Thanks.

Just save your FSUIPC5.ini file, located in your Modules folder. Also save your .key file, and you can re-use that instead of re-registering. If you use any other files such as macros (.mcro) or lua scripts (.lua) or profiles in separate files, then you also need to save them. You could just save all the contents of the Modules folder, apart from the FSUIPC5.dll and FSUIPC Documents folder, which will get re-installed.

Once you have re-installed P3D and ran it at least once, you can then run the latest FSUIPC5 installer (available from the Download Links -> Updated Modules section). You can skip the registration. Once complete, copy back those files that you saved into the Modules folder.

Thanks John, all clear (I hope).
Just one last question: currently my installed version (P3Dv4.5) is 5.151. The latest version is 5.155.

Are the instructions you wrote to me even if I install the latest version instead of the currently installed version?

Thank you.

Yep, there is no change in installation details between FSUIPC5 versions.
