beta update issue

Recommended Posts

I was notified this morning that a new update was available for x-plane. It went through the normal steps until it got to the final install where it said unable to access file permision denied.  Tried several times, thought it might be a server issue, but to no avail. Anyone else had this issue or have any advice or a fix?

 

Thanks

I was not able to even get that far into the update. My computer froze after it said the download was complete (installer only)

 

I could not get the program to go any further into the normal update process and could not cancel the install either. I had to reboot the computer in order to get out of the program.

Guess that is why it is called beta?

for sure that's why they call it a beta 🙂 I suspect there may be an issue with the installer on some machines. This is the first time I've ever had an issue, here's hoping someone can shed some knowledge on the issue.

How do I update from within the program I'm not able to find it?

Scot:As soon as you start the sim, you will see a menu from fly x plane on down. The update x plane bar is lower. Click on that. I know it is time consuming but well worth the wait.After there it tells you to download megabites worth of info.Once that is done, sign out and  reenter the sim. Then click on fly x plane. Happy Flying!!!!!!

Thanks for the help Paul but I don't see that option on my set up are you perhaps using the steam version?

Paul I found it. It's in the installer menu, not the main menu of X-plane.

 

Thanks for the help buddy

Same thing happened to me this evening. I downloaded the latest updater EXE from the XP site and it seemed to go through, though I never fired it up afterwards.

Tried to run the X-plane 11 Installer.exe as administrator by right clicking, that was the trick for me.

My beta build X-Plane 11.35b4 (build 113507 64-bit) after the update.
