Paint Kit Download Link Broken?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

As of beeing in need of the PMDG 737-800/900 Paint Kit for a freshly founded VA I tried downloading it from the PMDG website. After several tries, even with different pc's I had no luck. The download stops at 218MB instead of the stated ~450MB resulting in a broken .zip file.

 

Does anybody have an alternative downloadlink available? Or is there any chance that that just might be a temporarily issue?

 

Greetings

If there were an issue that we could fix, it wouldn't have even begun downloading. Sounds like a connection issue of some sort (particularly the case if the different PCs are on the same network). Try a different browser, or utilize a download manager.

I just downloaded it and it downloaded correctly, even through the very restrictive firewall that is present where I work (won't even let me get to Sixt.com):

As I mentioned earlier, you may need to use a download manager.

Sorry for the name thing.... And thanks for the help so far but sadly it does not work. Tryed with two download managers and everytime i get a .zip with 218MB and when i try to open the archive it states that the file is corrupt.

No worries. Thanks for addressing it.

Something is definitely interacting here. Try clearing your temporary internet files, and check to be sure an anti-virus program isn't trying to mess with the file/download process somehow.

Hmm. disabled firewall entirely and also antivirus program. Restarted the computer and cleared all caches i could fin in all browsers and even windows. Still no luck. Also restarted the router... Still no luck. Filesize still shows 218MB.

 

Might there be a different link to try? Looks like it is a problem with the file itself on the amazone S3 servers

No.

If it were, then how did I just download it and open it successfully? See the date/time-stamped image in post 4.

Well that makes the whole matter even stranger... Also just tryied downloading from my mac and the filesize there is 228MB. The issues is wiered as the same happen if a friend tries on his pc that is on a different network/isp.

 

Might it be a problem that is related to a specific region like Germany?

It could be an issue with the local AWS node in that case. It's doubtful since they're all supposed to clone across, but "supposed to" in the computing world doesn't always mean "is actually the case."

 

You might be able to force yourself onto another node by using a specific IP address. The local AWS node (Ashburn, VA) is using [local IP], so you could put https://[Local IP]/PMDG_Downloads/file_library/paintkits/PMDG_737NGX_700_Paintkit.ZIP into your browser and it should use the node here, but it would be slightly slower. I'm not sure if they have any optimization going on that would redirect you back to the local node, but it's worth a shot.

Hey,

nope, still the same issue.

You actually tried the 800/900 version or the 700?

Cause the 700 is working fine. I'm talking about the 800/900 one

that seem to be the right way...
And tried it and IT WORKS.

 

Interesting. Must just be an issue with the local node by you, then. Good to know.

 

 

 


Thanks a lot for your help.

Can anybody confirm that the PaintKit for the PMDG 737-800/900 is corrupted?

I just tried to download the 737-8900 paintkit and the same happened to me.  Only 218MB and corrupt. The 6700 fully downloaded though and was good.  Beats me what's going on, but IT IS going on.

Is there any chance for us that PMDG might reupload the NGX 737-800/900 paintkit?
