Hi Curt,

Downloaded 2.10 RC1 - Wow over a 20 minutes
even at about 550 MB/s, but I guess all good things
come with a little pain ;=))

But noted you 'forgot' to adjust the default install
folder - it still reads C:\<PF>\FlightGear-
as the default install folder. And likewise the name
for the default desktop icon.

I believe Fred intentionally chose to use the same registry key from one version to the next.   Thus if you install a new version over the top of an existing version it will end up in the same path under C:\<PF>

If you uninstall the old version first (maybe?) or are installing from scratch on a new system, it should pick the expected install directory.

Since I am also interested in producing a RC from my
own build curious how you 'separate' the RC data from
the git master fgdata.

There is a "make" target in the flightgear top level make that cherry picks all the pieces we want to go into the distributed 'data' package.
