WideFS install sanity check

Just revisiting WideFS after some years to test some Project Magenta modules.

I already have FSUIPC6 installed and successfully working on my server (running P3D v5). I've download and extracted WideFS7 to my client PC.

There is no need to install WideFS on my server - it's now integrated into FSUIPC - is that correct?

From the extracted contents on my client, WideClient.exe is all I need to run - and I assume it will ask me for a registration at some stage (which I have)?

Thanks,

Paul

Correct.

Yes. However, please check the provided guide, especially regarding windows workgroup names - you need to have both your main PC and client PC in the same windows workgroup.

No. Registration is on the server side. You need to re-run the FSUIPC6 installer. This will uninstall and re-install FSUIPC6, but it won't change anything and all your files and settings will be preserved. Please download the latest version (6.0.10) before you do this if not using this version already.

At the end of the installation process is the registration screen, where you register both your FSUIPC6 key (which will be pre-populated as you have already registered) and your WideFS key. Enter your details there (and remember to click the Register button) and your key file will be regenerated to include your WideFS license.
