Hello,

 

I can download files normally from my end, so please answer the following so that we determine what might be causing this problem:

1) Does this happen with any file you try to download from the Library or with certain file(s) only?

2) Which web browser are you using?

3) Do you use any download manager/accelerator?

Hi,

 

1) I've only tried downloading liveries for MJC, PMDG NGX and 777, all with the same problem.

 

2) Using IE

 

3) not that I'm aware of, just download straight from IE

Hello again,

 

Can you send me the file IDs of some of the files you tried downloading?

 

If possible, please try the following:

1) If you have any other browser installed, try downloading the same files using it and report the result.

2) If you have any other Internet-enabled device such as another computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone...etc, try downloading files using any such device and report the result.

Ok, it's nothing wrong with Avsim, I tried at home on two different computers both with IE and again with FireFox and the download hangs at 99% / 1 sec. every time.

 

I tried to download the same files at work using company equipment and all works fine.

 

So what is it that stops me from downloading files from Avsim at home ? I can seem to download anything else from other websites no problem ?

I can think of two reasons for this:

1) An active firewall is blocking downloads from the Library.

2) Your ISP is blocking downloads from the Library.

 

However these should prevent you the download from starting rather wait for it to reach 99% and block it.

 

But just to make sure we have covered all possibilities:

1) Disable any active firewalls and antivirus suites you have temporarily.

2) Try downloading the files through IE or Firefox InPrivate mode. This is to make sure that no cache or cookie problems are affecting your downloads. Keep in mind that you'll be required to log into the Library again in this mode as the saved cookies will not be active.

Good afternoon from Austria!

I have the same problem too.

 

1) Does this happen with any file you try to download from the Library or with certain file(s) only?
Yes, with any file! The problem starts two weeks ago.

2) Which web browser are you using?
Internet Explorer 7 and 9, Firefox (on different PC´s)

 

3) Do you use any download manager/accelerator?
No


I get the following message:

 

The following error has occurred whilst attempting to process the requested URL. Description FTP: Internal error at proxy HTTP Status Code 500 HTTP Reason Phrase Proxy error

Although the Code 500 error indicates an internal server error, I suggest you do all the steps mentioned above and report if any works. Also, please email the Library 'library@avsim.com' with your Library account login name and email address used for account registration.

 

Hopefully, by the time you email us at the Library we would have discovered the cause of the Code 500 error.
