Prepar3D v3.4 – Release Notes
The Client installer is required for Prepar3D v3.4, however the Content, Scenery, and SDK installers are optional. You must first have Prepar3D v3 installed to utilize the Client only installer. To install the Prepar3D v3.4 Client, you must first uninstall the Prepar3D v3 Client via Programs and Features in Windows Control Panel. The Prepar3D v3.4 Client update will require you to reactivate your product, however if you have an internet connection or have not made any major hardware changes between installations this should not be an issue. For more information please view the Prepar3D v3 Download and Installation Directions.

If this is your first time installing Prepar3D v3, you can simply install the complete Prepar3D v3.4 package.

Prepar3D v3.3 will no longer be available from

In a way and knowing how all this ends up, It seems that a clean Install is the way to go.  So for those (like me) who have a bunch of stuff that means at least 2 day´s of downloading and installing, ouch!  Pain, pain, pain in the you know what!  Thankfully I still didn´t buy v3.3 (still on v2.5) because I would be pretty upset now Installing everything again! Just my 2€ worth folks!
