My FSX install (on Vista Home, Deluxe plus SPs and Acceleration) has become bloated with lots of sceneries probably fighting each other and addon planes i don't use any more, so i am leaning towards a proper reinstall, deleting all my addons and then reinstalling the ones i use the most (Orbyx, Aerosoft's Discus, CumulusX, Dave Garwood freewares etc).
I can't seem to find a guide to doing this sort of thing and hoping folks here can help. I'm looking for more than just "select reinstall instead of repair", i'm hoping to find advice on how to manage the whole process more efficiently, cleaning registries, the most important addons to put back etc.
I also have a couple of other questions:
Is it necessary to delete and reinstall things like ASX that sit outside the program at the same time? Can I leave them alone and will they work properly with my "new" install?
Is there a recommended order i should follow in putting back addons (ie landclasses and scenery first)?
thanks in advance
