pop up blocker , anti spyware , also when you download I would not touch anything or browse the web. Also the servers are pretty slow right now I am on 7 meg cable and it is slow lol

I wish we could have a time slot so that we dont have to waste all night trying to download when the server is clearly overloaded.

Yes this has got me really annoyed. All the hype about pre-order and you can get it early!!!The only thing that anyone got early was PSS, who got my money.All we need now is for some smart arse to say "well I got mine OK"!!!!Paul Gardner:-mad

Why didnt they assign slots instead of having hundreds of people trying to download at the same time? I mean that was my biggest concern was the server overload. I just spent 4 hours, got to 10MB downloaded on the first file and it failed again after 12 attempts, Im out of ideas.Dan

I'm downloading at a fast speed so I can't believe the server is overloaded. (06:40UTC). Looks like its a problem with the file!I'm downloading the multi-base pack and it always throws me out at exactly the same point. File 8 of 9 at 4.27mb of 9.34mb.I've been trying for around 7 hours and I can't get past this pointPaul Gardner

WHat is the error you are getting?As you say, the server isn't under pressure because of this staged release.

I get to 4.27mb of 9.34mb (file 8 of 9 on the 777 multidownload) and it just comes up "download failed" and aborts.Files 1 - no problems, can't get past 8. Redownloaded the exe file and did a new download without FSUIPC or NAVDATA and it then failed at the same point, but this time on file 7 of 7.Paul Gardner
