So where did I go wrong?

Recommended Posts

I thought it meant to get the new 8 I had to update the 4 and also thought it said to delete or uninstall the 4 first before updating....ok did that and went to update and it said I did not have the 4 installed?

You mentioned "delete or uninstall" and that you did "that." Is "that" referring to a delete, or an uninstall?

The correct procedure is to remove the 400 using Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. Then install using the 400 installer, and then install using the 8 installer.

I did use add remove uninstall and then tried to install the update and it stated that it could find no record of me owning the 400.

I may misunderstand what you are saying. After uninstalling the original 747-400, you first need to download and run the new installer for the 747-400 base aircraft (the newest version of what you already had). That needs to be in place before installing the 747-8 expansion. 

As long as you did not try to deactivate your 747-400 license before uninstalling the original version, the new 747-400 base installer should run to completion without asking you to repair-enter your activation serial number.

If you tried to run the 747-8 installer without having the base aircraft already installed, I assume it would give an error message like what you are getting.
