So in order to update - do I go and uninstall just the client part or all parts?



Hi Jim, 

Go to Programs and Features in the Windows control panel and look for "Prepar3D v4 (Your version) Client" and uninstall, and then reinstall the client from your download, it may ask if you want to deactivate, choose no and it should be done in under a minute.

From what I remember there is only one file to download which will be the full 12 GB. When you unzip the file you will clearly see the client installer and out of the whole lot,  that is the only one you need to run.

Oh cool I downloaded the client from the site uninstalled and reinstalled. I get the nice option to only display favourite planes :)

It's not all that clear how to update really but hopefully it's done now. 


Thanks Joe
