Sometimes, I just hate Windows 10.
I deleted my Client from Add/Delete programs.
Went to install the Client update for v3.4 and got this:

"The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory
H:\Programs\Lockheed Martin\Prepar 3Dv3\ShadersHLSL.   The
Installation cannot contiue.   Log on as administrator or contact
your administrator."


Hm, I am the Administrator and only person on this PC.  WTF?
Then, I realized that I had to log on as the "Hidden Secret Administrator" Windows 10 has so thoughtfully given us.
Logged on as the Hidden Administrator.   
Couldn't find my Unzipped Lockheed Martin Update file.   Hm...
Had to go back as me, the REAL Administrator and transfer the LM file over to my 64GB Stick,
Went back as the Hidden Administrator and FINALLY installed the Client update.
I haven't gone on to P3D to see if it even works yet so I'm about to enter the Twilight Zone...

 :groan:    I'm really too old for this $hit.

To finish my rant, I went into P3D, and found that FSUIPC tells me it is registered -- to me, actually.    However, it has somehow forgotten all the switches and buttons I so diligently set up so my CH Pedals and Yoke will work.  Now I'm at a loss to figure this out, but figure it out I shall!   (hopefully said, in deed).   I appreciate the P3D updates, and the sim seems great, or at least it did last time after I set up my yoke & pedals.   

I checked out the settings of the inputs shown in the sim and they seem to be (maybe) what I set earlier, however, the sim doesn't recognize my yoke & pedals and will not show movement of either.

Well, it's corrected.   Seems I relocated the Yoke & Pedals USB connectors to other ports.   I put them back and now everything is A-OK.   However, I still can not figure out why the Baron pulls so hard to the left after take off.   I'll have to investigate the trim tabs, I suppose.   Other than flying in circles, P3D seems a great improvement over FSX.   I'll have to see how my QW 757 and ERJs fare.

Next question:   If I move my AI aircraft to a separate folder as has been discussed previously, when I upgrade again will I have to copy them over or adjust the cfg?

In simobjects.cfg, add entries for your AI traffic location, and that's it. This is why I back these files up, so that I can see what I did before - just in case the new install deletes them, or replaces them with some new flavour because LM have added something new.

These are my entries for an example.

Quote
[Entry.10]
PATH=D:\AITraffic\AircraftCivil
TITLE=Civil AI Traffic
ACTIVE=true
REQUIRED=true
[Entry.11]
PATH=D:\AITraffic\AircraftMilitary
TITLE=Military AI Traffic
ACTIVE=true
REQUIRED=true

This is all that gets updated, what is contained in the above two paths, is where it always has been (since I moved my AI out of the P3D directory).

I took the flightplans out of the P3D directory as well, and added them in via the Scenery Library, which in scenery.cfg looks as follows:

Quote
[Area.003]
Title=AI Traffic
Local=D:\AITraffic\FlightPlans\Scenery
Layer=3
Active=TRUE
Required=FALSE

I put them as low as I could, so it sits third from the bottom in the Scenery Library.

Take a look at the P3D forum, I recall seeing a lot of people complaining about aircraft pulling left after take-off. Take a look at the realism settings, it may be that it is a torque effect. Try dialling that slider back to 50%, and see if that changes anything.

Didn't think of the torque effect.   However, I thought that most all twins had props that spin in opposite directions.   Maybe not so true.
