You should be able to install the current one fairly easily. Run the installer and install it to a folder somewhere, and then use the Scenery Library to set P3D up to use it. 
It's getting pretty long in the tooth though, almost like its time to start thinking about a new version. Thumbs Up

That is an interesting comment, Rich. You make it sound like a new version is in development....

Neilb & Rich.

I have Horizon VFR Photo Scenery GenX vol 1,2 & 3 version 3. I hear it works OK in V4.1. How do I install and set it up so the VFR GenX folder is outside the sim ? My skills at this stuff are limited so a numpty style guide would be welcome !  Same question for UK2000 Airports ?

Thanks.

I'm not sure with horizon but I thin the installation program looks for fsx.exe to install if I remember, it's a while since I used it. maybe you have fsx on your computer if so install it through that that then simply point the scenery library in Prepar to that folder.

Thanks Neil. I created a new folder on my G: drive where all things flight sim live and named it P3D VFR GenX, I dumped FSX so the Horizon installer placed all the files in there no problem. Is it now a simple case of going into the P3DV4 scenery library, "Add Area" browse to it or enter this, G:\P3D VFR GenX as the new area name ?

Rich, please jump in and let me know how you did it ?

Hi Neil, not working yet, note my question to you in my last post.

What you will need to do is install FSX temporarily, install your photo scenery, run FSX then go to C/Program Data/Microsoft/FSX and open the scenery cfg file.
You will find all the entries for your photo scenery at the bottom of the text, there will probably be quite a few, copy those entries.
Then open your P3D scenery cfg file (C/Program Data/Lockheed Martin/Prepar3Dv4) and paste those entries at the end of the text.
You will then need to change the numbers on each entry both the [Area.?] and layer? save it and you are then sorted. I'd make a backup of your Scenery.cfg before I alter it if I was you.
You can now uninstall FSX. 
Simple really.

Ian
