if you are updating SPAD.neXt from a version older than, you will need to do step updates, as a lot of stuff changed in between the major releases.

Download installer, and install it over current installation.
Then start it and load all your profiles once (and save them again) so SPAD.neXt can update them. Then exit and proceed to next version.

Once you reached update and loaded and saved your profiles once, you can reenable AutoUpdate and/or click the "Check for Update" Button to update to most current release.

It is  highly recommended to create  a backup of your profiles folder before doing so!

(comments: 0)

You might have noticed that SPAD.neXt is constantly complaining about the MSFS LVAR being outdated since today.

A SPAD.neXt update to v0.9.13.39 has been released today, which requires a MSFS SU13 compatible MSFS LVAR Bridge to be installed.

If your installation updated, just reinstall the MSFS LVAR Bridge from the GamePlugins-folder of SPAD.neXt. If SPAD.neXt keeps complaining afterwards, read on.

If your installation did not update (expired update subscription or disabled auto update) please see this article on how to fix it.
