X Plane Demo Installer for Windows is a bust!

Recommended Posts

I have tried to use the installer over the last three or four days. Each time, I only get to the mask that says the installer is looking for an Xplane demo server. That's it. It just sits there...until after about 15 minutes I shut the installer mask down. iIt doesn't work!I don't wish to use Torrents....MItch

File a bug report here: http://dev.x-plane.com/support/bugreport.htmlEvery time you launch the installer, it should create an "X-Plane Installer Log.txt" file inside the folder it's located. Attach that file to your bug report.Marco

Weird, because it works very well (apart from some bandwith problem associated with the huge inital demand) for a lot of people. So while I wouldnt rule out a temporary server outage at Laminar, it does look like it might also be a problem on your end (firewall, etc.).If all else fails download it from this german site: http://www.chip.de/downloads/X-Plane_31525841.html(Took me all of 4-5 seconds to google it...)Jan
