Prepar3D and FSX registry issues

These days I've been working on a very strange problem (please first read its not lenghty discussion on FSDT forum to get into details). To help solve this problem I'd like to get more information from a wider simmers community, especially from those of you who have both sims installed.

Please download the FSchecker 3 program from the sidebar, run and see what it finds. If its output matches to what you have then it's ok. If not, please report what it finds and what you have in fact (screenshots of the relevant registry keys would be just fine).

Thanks in advance!
