Wouldn't running the full installer do the same as deleting generated files?

Don’t think so. Some files are left behind after uninstalling P3d.

Yes, but the new install would overwrite the files I think.

P3D does NOT remove its configuration files or shaders when it is uninstalled. That is why LM includes the Delete Generated Files batch file which removes all of the folders created to contain the configuration files and the shaders. Unless at least the Prepar3D.cfg file is renamed or deleted, the changes made to that file in the update will not be implemented. Similarly, if the shaders folder is not deleted, then the updated version will run using the existing shaders from the "old" version. Both of these are likely to cause problems in the new version.

95% of problems with P3D experienced by users after an update are because they chose to follow their own paths instead of the detailed guides that are provided to ensure that these problems are avoided. Computers do not understand "I would think that..." or "surely that can't be right, I will do this instead". The final 5% of problems result from mis-installed addons which were causing problems in the last version which persist into the updated version.

Yes, I've had that since 5.0. Nothing I do fixes it. Looks bad.
