Hello fliers, I have decided to buy and download xp 11. Instructions say it is best to download to the desktop. I have a dedicated drive I won't to install the sim on so would it be safe to direct the download to that drive? Anyone had any trouble downloading sim to a dedicated drive? thanks

I’ll try XPlane for the first time after I get my new gaming laptop by March next year. I’m planning to get it from Steam. I find it very convenient to get it from there. Have you considered that way?.

Cheers, Ed

I recommend buying from Laminar directly, unless there is a Sale going on (but then Laminar will lose some money).

And no, there is no problem installing the whole package directly to the external drive. It is just not recommended to install it in "Program Files" or another special protected place in Windows. You can install X-Plane where ever you like, make duplicates of it, run beta in one duplicate while keeping the other on the stable version, you can make shortcuts to other directories, ... . And there are no entries in the registry, so you can take the external disk and put it in another pc, X-Plane will start up just fine.
