File Transfer Question

Postby Northwest 102 » Tue Oct 09, 2012 6:41 pm

How can I transfer the aircraft from the Microsoft Pro Disks to my FS2002 Standard program?

Thank you!

The better way would be to rename your existing FS2002 Standard folder and install FS2002 Pro.  Then copy your custom addons from Standard to Pro.

If you are determined to copy over your existing FS2002 Standard you would need to find which .cab files contain the Aircraft folder and the Gauges folder and overwrite the corresponding FS2002 Standard folders.

Is it possible to copy over my saved flights and my log books?

Thank you!

Either method will preserve your saved flights and log book.
