1: What is the Update patch for
2: The tips below apply to any aircraft repaints you would have in the SimObjects folder if the reinstall asks for you to back up the files (repaints)
you need to copy the a2a plane folders ie:Microsoft Flight Simulator X/SimObjects/Airplanes/WoP2_b17g
This is where your textures are for all the add on repaints.
When you do a reinstall it will remove all repaints and put in the default aircraft.
So save the WoP2_b17g or what ever plane folder some where eles on your hard drive once you have done the reinstall copy and paste back, remember to back up the aircraft.cfg file from the new install
Hope this helps
