Need Specific Instructions to Update Installed PD3 v3.2 to v3.3.5

LM Tech Support:
Please provide specific instructions to update an existing P3D v3.2 install in Win 7 to v3.3.5. The installation guide is confusing and is not detailed. In one sentence the guide says to run the Client Updater (Client.msi?) and in the next its referring to a total uninstall, followed by reinstallation of the v3.3.5 download. This does not sound like an update to me. I see others on the forums are having problems as well.

I would like to maintain my current settings and Track IR function. The later took quite a bit of research to get operating since the LM software did not accommodate it in the v3.2 download package.
I would like to keep my current graphics settings and 3rd party aircraft if possible.

If this "update" does require a complete reinstall, then is it possible to keep my v3.2 install separate?

Thanks for your help,

JRLaux

jrlaux -

Here is another guide, created by a member of the Prepar3D community. Hopefully, the rewording of the process will make it easier to update.
