My understanding is that some are and some aren't. Perhaps one of our early-adopters of v5 can weigh in on that.

I went ahead and got the P3D V5 because I never had the version 4 and hadn't bought any stuff for it. However, I have been sticking to installing planes that specifically say they are V5 compatible. I did have to get the FSUIPC Version 6 for it and my last 5 or 6 flights have been with P3D. Am quite happy with it. Am probably not going to install planes on it if they are not specifically for V5. My system isn't the fastest, (i7 with NVidia 1050ti) but still getting quite good frame rates. Will see what happens when I add some ORBX scenery....

I did get Prepar v4.5 working again. I had saved a saved flight configuration as the default flight, and it caused the sim to shut down. I would get the opening screen then it closed down. This morning I started it and clicked on Perpar's default start and it started. Then I could select my saved scenario.

It's always my suggestion not to use the "saved flight" for your startup. There is a way to change the startup default airport, and that's (generally) the way I start P3d. The problem with saved flight is that it tends to save a lot of things related to your flight. In the event of an update that is no longer compatible with some addon or setting, the saved flight will try to load that and - if it hasn't been coded to handle that event gracefully, it will crash your system. I see that with a saved flight for my Doolittle Adventure that used an older fsx version of the Corsair. Fortunately I had already discovered that the older version was not P3dv4 compatible and never installed it. P3d recognized the plane didn't exist in the current simulator so defaulted to my default plane with a warning message that the plane wasn't found. I suspect that, had I left the incompatible version on the sim, that it might have crashed without any information as to what the problem might have been. The other reason I suggest this is that SPAACARs uses the simulator date/time to log your pirep. Your saved flight generally also saves the date/time. Pilots have questioned why their flight isn't showing on the daily flights posted on the main website, and upon checking I find that they've been using an old saved flight from days, weeks or months earlier. That is what your flight date is saved at. Since the Daily Flights area only has the current and previous day's flights, your flight will not show up there in that situation. It will also be way back in your logbook depending upon the recorded flight date of your saved flight you started with.

Hopefully this makes some sense, and I'm glad you managed to sort it out.
