I launched to the FlyTampa Universal Installer and after enter the key code the setup line shows like to be installed in P3dv5 which I guess is normal. So, if I change the location to the P3Dv4, will the setup install the scenery for P3Dv4? I don't want to mess my original P3Dv4 but to update to the following version.
Any directions ideas etc?
Yes, if you have both v4 and v5 installed the correct procedure to install into v4 is to change the folder tov4 .
Thank you Martin for helping me on this.

As I am new to P3Dv5, could you please give me instructions of how to install Athens on that platform ?
I started the installer and it says to install in root P3D folder contrary to suggestions of P3D readme.
Is this way valid ?


P.S. Has anybody come across this ? (see attachment).

Solution found on the issue quoted in my previous post.

Another problem is that it is impossible to edit/correct/modify AFX_LGAV.bgl not even using the AFX program (unable to open it). It is possible though to open it with ADE 1.79, however, if anychange is saved and compiled, LGAV jetways, Main terminal and satellite terminal are not showing in P3Dv5 thereafter. As in the real life airports change from time to time, so AFD files should be editable/corrected and/or modified accordingly, as it was possible in FSX and the previous version of FlyTampa Athens, in which I had succeeded to make AI traffic work in LGAV as in real airport.
I don't see a reason why not with v1.6 as well.
This time I 'd wish to have a response by FlyTampa support on this subject.
