(1) The information below about new iFly installers applies to pcs which have registries which are not incorrectly modified by improper installations of FSX, FSX - SE, or P3D for that matter.  The installers will not work if your registry is not "clean".  If you encounter this situation, all FS software should be uninstalled and the registry checked to ensure all references to the FS software are removed.  Steam is known to to leave registry entries in place when it is uninstalled. 
(2)  Please follow the directions to the letter.
(3)  Please read everything carefully so you understand the changes!

Hi All,

All iFly product installers are now updated to:


1.       Make the installers FSX - Steam Edition aware.

2.       Include required files which might be missing due to the absence of a FSX SP2/Acceleration installation.


The module installer is now designed to make required changes to the folder/file structure during installation.


The Module Installer which makes the dll.xml entry has been moved from \modules\ - you will now find it at \ifly\737NG\Module Installer\ or \ifly\744\Module Installer\.  The installation selected option determines which module installer is activated.  Of course this all happens automatically.


In the FSX installers there are now selectable options for which FS version you want to install to:




There are 3 scenarios for these installations:


Scenario 1:

Only the FSX Boxed version (Original Microsoft
DVD) is installed on your pc:  select the 1st option, as shown above, and run the installer.


Scenario 2:

Only FSX - Steam Edition (by Dovetail) is installed on your pc:  select the 1st option, as shown above, and run the installer.


Scenario 3:

The original FSX Boxed version and the FSX - Steam Edition are both installed on your pc.  This is referred to as a "side by side", or "Co-Existence", installation.  If this is your situation, you must run the installer twice:


-          First, choose the 1st option to install to FSX Original Boxed version and run the installer. 

-          Second, choose the 2nd option and run the installer again to install to FSX - Steam Edition version.


Instructions are included in the Installers:




The iFly 747-400 installers have the same options and information pages as the above examples from the iFly 737NG installers. 

Important:  The FSUIPC installer is no longer included in the iFly FSX and P3D product installers.  This is because Dovetail and Lockheed Martin are actively changing their products, which causes errors due to incompatible versions of FSUIPC.  You must keep FSUIPC updated by downloading current versions from:



ND display of TCAS traffic from either FS internally generated traffic or IVAO/VATSIM traffic requires a functional version of FSUIPC, either freeware or registered version.


The required Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 C++ Redistributable and SimConnect installers are now included in the iFly installers.  This should prevent the situation where the required files are missing due to fresh installs of FSX-SE or P3D without the presence of FSX with SP2 or Acceleration Pack.




Do not use the new iFly installers to install over an existing installation.  The folder/file structure is changed.

If you happen not to heed this warning and install over an existing installation:

1.       Go to FSROOT\modules\ run the module installers and click the option to remove the dll.xml entries.

2.       Uninstall the products via ADD and REMOVE, and then delete any leftover files and folders.

3.       Run the new installers as administrator.


Installer Version numbers:

737NG for FS9 and FSX is  v3.2.1

737NG for P3D v3 is v3.2.2
