As noted in the update announcement: uninstall, then re-install.

FSUIPC settings should remain, but that's a question for them. Key commands on our end will remain, as well.

We don't offer a 747-800.

The expansion to the 747v3 for the 747-8 will be available when it is complete. It is still in development.

What settings do you think you will loose? If you have modified the aircraft.cfg it will be overwritten, of course. You might have to go through the simulation settings in the CDU, but that's a matter of minutes once. The update is necessary to do for all further micro updates. Fsuipc will not be affected.

To avoid losing your liveries and settings made thru PMDG Setup in the CDU do this. Prior to uninstalling the version that is on your computer run the PMDG Operations Center. After you have installed the version that you downloaded run the OC again. It will tell you that liveries need to be repaired. Select the repair option and press OK.

Simply copy your FSUIPC.ini over from the prior edition. No muss, no fuss.  Mouse macros are the only present limitation.

Yes, I believe the update is well worth it.
