Is there any benefit for a FS9 user with 1.51 going to the latest version?

There are a couple of important fixes included in v1.60 so I'd say it is suggested to upgrade...BUT you must FIRST check you're not going to lose compatibility with aircraft/panels/whatever you're using (1.60 is NOT backward compatible).

Have no idea how you'd check compatibility other then installing and seeing if it works.  Undecided

It's quite simple actually: Are you using any aircraft/panel integrated with CIVA (like the FsLabs Concorde for example)?
If the answer is yes then you will have compatibility issues  :'(

I some HJG 727's and the RFP 747. Also a merge I'm beta testing of the CLS/RFP.

OZ Flyer,

I'd suggest you to proceed as follows:

1) Make a "backup" copy of the CIVA subfolder
2) Overwrite ins.gau and civa_id.dat
3) Delete all .ISD files
4) Try
5) If you notice something not working then "restore" copied CIVA folder

Good luck!  Smiley
