It is strongly recommended that you accept the default folder for the installation. However you can change it via the Browse Dialog if you wish. You should not:
- Install ADE anywhere inside the Flight Sim or SDK Folder structures
- Install this version into an existing installation. 1.65 is intended to be a clean install. Later you can import your settings and data from an earlier version.
When ADE starts it will offer you the New User Wizard if this is a clean installation. This helps you to set up ADE for the first time. We recommend that if you have an existing ADE installation that you import your settings and data from there into the new version by clicking the Import Button
The installer makes an entry into your registry under \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ScruffyDuckSoftware. This is used to support updating and uninstalling the software. Note that if you uninstall this version the registry entry will be removed
Uninstalling ADE 1.65
