    Well this is not good, what a mess.

    So I learned the hard way that if I had my choice of loosing the SSD with the Prepar3d v4 installed or the SSD with the OS, I'd pick to loose the flight sim. My SSD with Windows 7 died on me so I installed a new SSD and decided to upgrade to Windows 10 while I was at it. I'm thinking that this won't be that bad as I have my add-ons installed the "correct" way outside of the simulator directory. Well I've been at this for days now trying to get back to where I was and thought I was finally there. I launch P3D and pick an add-on plane to test and finish setting up my controllers but the aircraft is a mess because of all the freak'n security put on these things. So now I'm asking myself why did I bother to set these up outside the sim directory if I have to re-install everything anyway.

    Am I missing something in this process? I thought the reason P3D set up the add-ons this way was to make it easier if you had to perform a re-install. I'm going to lunch.

    Hello,
    I expect that you will have lost all the P3D xml files when you lost your system disk.
    Unfortunately, they are stored in C:\Users\yourname\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons.
    Despite its present problems with 32 bit simulators, Windows 10 seems to be P3D v4 friendly.
    Regards,

    I have the add-ons folder on the same drive as the sim as a kinda "best of both worlds" configuration.

    You can have a completely separate ADD ons folder ( differnt drive) and nothing in the Documents folder if you use the Add-on Package method...
