I backed up the old install first (twice in fact) in case something goes wrong and deleted completely the old install. My approach is to bring nothing over from the old install. I am using the current GPLPS Installer (1.08). I have tested the installation so far, running a few laps of Watkins Glen in a Lotus 49 at 36fps. So far, so good! I am now slowly working my way through the raft of mods and patches, particularly those recommended in Stefan's Easy Installation Guide. A few problems with my wheel (Logitech Momo, also getting up to 15 years old), but these are probably to do with the wheel's software, not GPL,and should be resolvable.
I don't really expect any issues but any words of advice would be appreciated.

Nice to hear that my http://www.gplworld....tion-guide.html helps.
It is difficult to give words of advise as long as you do not have any problems.
Make sure you use the latest version of all GPL mods (+ updates/ patches) and also the latest drivers for your wheel (of the Logitech website) and graphics card (btw which one are you using?). And also check the GPL Track Database and SRMZ if there are updates available for tracks that you most likely haven`t downloaded yet.
I also wouldn`t use old files of your backup, except your setups.
Good luck and if, contrary to your expectations, problems should arise, do not hesitate to ask for help.

I was expecting some problems with apps like Pribluda, which in the old install was pretty well unreadable using Open GL with W10. It is clear and legible. The wheel issues have been resolved by installing the not latest version of Logitech software. Only force feedback, currently non-existent, has to be addressed. I will look for all the advice that is available on the forums for help on this one.

The F2, CanAm 66, CanAm71 and GT mods are up and running. The 55, 68, Thundercars, 64 Tasman, 67 Historical and Anniversary mods will be next and I will call it a day as far as mods are concerned. I still need to trawl my list of downloads for any updates that can be installed to the mods.
Sierra folder already 11GB.

I have a main install with the original 67`s and the mods I use with all the car, track, driver and layout (etc) updates. I also have a working, updated GPL folder with just everything needed to run the original 67`s so if I need/want to do a fresh install I just use that folder then add in the mods/updates I want.
I also do regular backup`s of my day to day install so I always have that too if needed.
