  1. After many trials, tribulations and reinstalls it is now clear that the basic problem is that the fresh install download stops at a bit over one GB. I've tried using both Microsoft Store and the XBox app. In the XBox App, the download shows 152 GB at first. But it always completes at about 1 GB. I've tried both wireless and Ethernet. Windows 1909 is up to date. I've made sure all MSFS related files are removed after each uninstall. I cannot install on C drive (since it has FSX on it, among other things), so I try to install on D (which has plenty of room). I succeeded with the initial installation and previous update. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks to pjs37 and HiFlyer for earlier help on related issues. But it is now clear that I need to be able to download the full file.
  2. Hello I purchased FS2020 on DVD because although I have a 38Mbps internet connect I thought the DVD install might be quicker and I wanted the printed manual too. Possibly this was correct since I managed to install it from DVD in about 3 hours. I then went to the MS Store and registered the product and attempted to download the remaining software, presumably the game loader. This appears to be only about 1GB in total. However this small download failed with MS telling me I needed to have 127GB free on my hard drive, but I only had 80GB left available. The 127GB sounds like what you would need if you were downloading the entire package, but of course I had aleady installed that from DVD. Does this sound like a bug to you, or am I missing something? I have now ordered a larger hard drive which hopefully will enable me to get around this problem! Thanks for your feedback Robin
  3. Hello I've installed FS2020 and have purchased a single copy from the MS store. In future when I buy a new PC will it be easy to move and reinstall the software on another machine? What exactly does a single digital licence allow? Can you for example have the program installed on more than one PC as long as you only run one copy at a time? Thanks for your advice Robin
  4. Title says it all. I just went to install an addon plane and the install package directed me to my C drive - my HDD. I thought it was a mistake, that it was just assuming that's where my v5 install was. But no, that's where I installed it. Questions: How bad is it vs. having it installed on my SSD? I'm assuming performance is better on the SSD (not to mention the fact that the whole reason I have an SSD is for gaming). If I want to get it on my D drive (SSD), can I just copy and paste the whole P3Dv5 folder over? I'm assuming the answer to that is no. Which means that I have to uninstall and re-install the whole thing, correct? It wouldn't really be that big a deal, I still have the download and I haven't installed any addons.. Advice appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Hi, i bought the DHC-2 on the flash sale as my first Milviz aircraft. Now my normal installation procedure (in times of v4) is to first install sceneries or aircraft to a dummy folder with just an prepar3d.exe in it. Then i move the folders to my preferred custom directories, copy the effects to my main custom effects and so on, generate my xml's and whatever. Business as usual in the meantime and generally working flawlessly afterwards. After the Beaver installation i immediately thought i maybe will run into some difficulties this time because of the MVAMS directory with its files or maybe the xmltools.dll. Anyway, i moved the folders to my preferred custom locations and started the sim (P3Dv4). Okay, first problem when i loaded the Beaver was a lot of tiny windows each telling me a specific sound file wasn't found in ..panel\mvsounds. Afterwards i saw there was no ...panel\mvsounds folder at all, but a DHC-2 Beaver Milviz\DHC-2_XML_Sounds folder containing all these missing sound files. Just for the fun of it i created a ..panel\mvsounds folder and copied the sound files into it. Next time loading the aircraft i had no more messages of missing sound files and i could hear (probably) the correct sounds. But yes, it just didn't feel like a correct installation to me... And yes, it was me doing this. And even more the MVAMS tool seems not to work. For example, directly after the installation and BEFORE moving any folders i choosed the GTN750 but then, after moving my folders and loading the aircraft the first time there were only the standard avionics. Again, after manually adding the panel=GTN750 in the aircraft.cfg the GTN was there and working. So the bottom line is, is it somehow possible to install the aircraft into a directory outside the main sim folder and without having to manually editing or moving files afterwards? BTW i don't even know if everything is working properly now as i didn't spend much time in the aircraft so far and, as i said, it definitely "feels" like a weird patchwork what i did. If everything will work as it should now, i maybe would keep my installation (and never touch it again..) but i would always wonder if i could have had it in a more straightforward installation. And some problems still resist anyway like the other options in the MVAMS because the tool doesn't work with my installation. Any clarification appreciated! Thanks.
  6. I have been Running FSX and FSX SE side by side on the same Harddrive on 2 Computers for a long time, With No Problem . After a Hardrive Problem, requiring a reInstlall, I find that FSX SE will Not create the App Data Files Properly ? FSX-SE does create a FSX file in both App Data Roaming and Local. but will NOT open a FSX SE file ? FSX and FSX SE will both run Seemingly normal, but are operating out of the same FSX file in the Appdata Folder ? When I Completly Uninstall FSX, and run only FSX SE, FSX SE will continue to create the FSX Entries, but will NOT create a FSX SE entry in the App Data Folder ?? I suspect a Registry Error, but have NO Idea how to find it ?? HAAAAAAALPP !! - Johnman
  7. Hey all, I downloaded the ZIP file from simMarket, installed the software from the installer, but now I can't see the aircraft in FSX. Where am I supposed to install the aircraft to? I've downloaded it to 3 different places. The Load Manager works, but can't access the aircraft in FSX. Cheers! Ben H.
  8. Hello, yesterday (23.10.17) everything worked fine with ChasePlane but today, it didnt Startup anymore for some reason. I have made the decision to uninstall and install ChasePlane again, now ChasePlane doesnt install in VFXCentral after a view minutes i am getting an Error here it is: Installation Error: System.Exception: cpDownloadError at A.B.A(Boolean ) at VFXCentral.MainWindow.A(Object , DoWorkEventArgs ) at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.OnDoWork(DoWorkEventArgs e) at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.WorkerThreadStart(Object argument) here is also an Screenshot of it: http://prntscr.com/h1j05f Also the Webside of FSFX is loading extremely long for me. (I uninstalled VFXCentral and installed it again aswell) But at downloading VFXCental i needed to use my Phone's Hotspot, otherwise VFXCentral.zip wouldnt have downloaded. I hope i can use ChasePlane as soon as possible. Greetings Trevor

  10. Hi Guys, would love if someone can assist me with the installation of Pilot2ATC for xplane 11. I have followed the installation guidelines in the manual, and everything has installed perfectly. As soon as you startup Pilot2ATC it gets to +- 5% loading, and after 5minutes or so gives a long complex error message regarding the programing Unable to initialize Database, with various sql errors. Do I need to install any sql server products et cetera for Pilot2Atc to run, or am I missing something ? Please help.
  11. Everytime when I try to install FSX on Windows 10(64-bit) the installation is almost finished. But when it says "Registrating Modules", an error occures and the setup aborts the installation. I need hlp, because I alreay re-installed Win10 and I actually just want to test my freshly bought PMDG 777&737 and Airbus A320/321!
