Reinstall DCS

Hi

 

So I need the procedure to reinstall DCS.

 

So do I deactivate the modules, copy the folders (dcs world is basically in one folder) onto another Hard drive, and then copy back over onto the newly formatted hard drive and then basically re activate the modules?

 

Easy as that yeah?

the safest variant:

 

deactivate the modules first

 

then deinstall DCS World, your profiles and settings will stay saved.

 

If you reinstall DCSW, it loads your "old" settings again

 

once installed, log in the module manager and activate the modules again

 

other variant:

 

you can drag the installation of DCS around on your pc, but that would require some edits in the install directory/regedit

Hi,

 

My installation is two years old. I recently moved it to an SSD. I want to deinstall and do a fresh job install on the SSD. Will I have garbage left behind on the original HD that will slow things down?

 

After the deinstall, the profiles and settings are stored where?

Are any files /folders left behind in the original location, and can I delete them?

 

Lastly, what is the difference between 1.5 and 1.5 open beta?

Will all servers show up in either installation?

What advantages do each have?

There should not be leftovers

 

They are located in "saved games/dcs" and you can copy them or delete them over to the ssd

 

Open beta is for testing out bigger updates and some new planes before it goes out on stable

 

Depending on the version, sometimes the open beta gets a network upgrade/update, then stable version servers can't be seen in open beta and the other way round too

 

Only advantage of open beta is that you can try updates or planes earlier

 

Stable version is more polished

There should not be leftovers

 

Actually, if there are any installed mods, or other files not installed by the installer/updater, then it is possible to have files leftover after running the uninstall. They can, of course, just be deleted.
