Now I am really unhappy! My download died at 98%. Im so sick of this!Its now been 55hrs! What a joke! I hope PMDG sort something out before they release the 747 or this will Just happen all over again! Ive now got my PMDG_737_THE_NEXT_GENERATION.zip file but its about 1mb short! So its as good as dead! Pete

Pete,I downloaded using "download accelerator", it supports download resuming. Copy/paste the link in it that you get once you're authorized.Works like a charm. My download interupted a few times also but everytime was recovered!Johan

Only if you were to buy it - but then you have slammed the 737 distribution incessantly so why would you put yourself through the hassle with another software download.I think you are posting simply for effect - I'm sure that if they could they would give you access to the update to get rid of the whining and whinging that permeates every post you make.I hope you get the update soon - for yours and everyone elses peace of mind. Now grow up, get a life and find something else to occupy your time.Andy B

Nigel,You need to put in the link that you get once you're authorized for the download. So the link to the actual zipfile, not the link in the email from PDMG.Johan

Using flashget I click on the link in the email and (eventually) get to the link where it says that I am authorized (wrong spelling :)) to download the 737, if I pull this over to the flashget window then I get a download of download.asp. What am I doing wrong?ScottYBTL

Nigel (and Scott),My best guess is that Flashget does not support the "?" in the download URL. If you look at the url you will see bla.bla.bla/download.asp?filename=etc.etc.etc.The trouble may be that flashget ignores the arguments behind the "?" (which are quite important). Have you tried copy/paste of the full download URL into flashget? Alternatively try "Download Accelerator". That one works...Cheers,Johan

Thanks Johan,I tried DA but got no-where. The full URL does appear in flashget, including the filenameMaybe it's a case of renaming it. Then again I haven't got it to start yet!! :)Maybe it's the position of the planets that is causing problems. Has anyone checked Uranus lately? :)ScottYBTL

Scot,Mine worked just fine using FlashGet this is wat I did:First click the link you recievied in your e-mail. Then when you get to the link, wich says your're authorised, right click it, select download using FlashGet. A new window pops-up with all kinds of options, then fill PMDG_737_THE_NEXT_GENERATION.ZIP where it says "rename:" and set the "split file" to 1. Click OK.You may want to tweak some connection settings in the option page, set "Retry Delay" to 5 seconds, dont want to hammer server!!!Thats it.Goodluck!Onno
