Title: Installer wont recognize P3Dv4 as a simulator
Post by: zawaralfarsi on July 03, 2019, 06:41:17 PM
Hello,

So I was looking to buying and using the KDFW scenery for my P3D v4, along with a few others. However when I am using the installer for the scenery, it asks me to add the Addon manager (I did not download it for FSX) and so I choose the default folder as such, but then on the following page it does not even recognize my P3D simulator. It only recognizes my FSX simulator. I even tried putting the Addon manager in my C:...\Program Files (where my Lockheed Martin Folder is) and it still wont recognize my simulator. I have attached an image of the installer on the page I am having trouble on. Please let me know any suggestions!

Thank you very much,
Z. AlFarsi

That explains it. PBR is supported only starting with P3D 4.4, so the PBR update doesn't work in older versions.

Ah, so I would have to update it then and then it should work?

Yes. I suggest downloading the latest FULL installer ( 4.5 ), and use that, since updating from 4.3 to 4.5 with just the Client will cause issues with PBR textures.

I updated the client and my simulator to 4.5.0 and I can not thank you enough! It all worked and I hope to buy your product. Thank you so much for your quick response!
