Can we copy the FSX libraries to P3dv4 and use them. Let's say I put them in a folder called "New Libraries". Will they still work for P3Dv4?

What is in the FSX libraries that isn't in the Prepar3D libraries?

FSX Libraries will generally work, but a library object is only used if there is an external reference to it in the scenery bgl file. You'll find a lot more discussion on topics like this in the FSDeveloper forum.

Thanks for the help. I have been looking in FSDeveloper Forum for someone else's posts like mine.

the libraries that I was talking about are not the ones that come with FSX, but addon libraries for FSX.
Airport_Buildings_01_AP.bgl
Airport_Buildings_02_AP.bgl
Airport_Buildings_03_AP.bgl
Airport_Buildings_04_AP.bgl
Airport_Buildings_AP.bgl

One way to find out, just add the library to ADE (see the ADE user manual) and add a building from the library you added to an ADE project, complile it and add it to P3D add on scenery. This is quicker than lurking in forums.
