DCS on an SSD in a new PC build

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've upgraded my gaming PC and to work around redownloading DCS I've just ported the SSD over to the new build and it runs just fine, but DCS doesn't show up in the program lists in explorer, and all the .exes don't have icons etc etc. How can I get windows to recognise DCS as a program just on a different drive without redownloading?


Many thanks

You can move the DCS program folder wherever you want, but dont forget that the activation information of each Module and Campaign is actually stored on Windows' Registry ... and that info isnt easily copied to a different Windows, so I hope you performed a deactivate before the upgrade or else you will lose an activation.



Fixing the DCS icon is easy, you just have to point windows file explorer to wherever you put the /bin folder of DCS and the right click on DCS_Updater.exe and select "send to desktop (create shortcut"



Best regards
