The demo downloader defaults to ~/X-Plane 11  (home directory).

However, I wish to install in /Sims/X-Plane 11, & after clicking the Change Directory button & browsing to the correct folder, the Continue button is greyed out & I can't proceed further.

So I will have to install in my home directory, then move the whole install to my Sims folder.

Please check this out?

Many thanks!

Hi, you will probably find many answers there, even though it is not specifically about Linux :

So yes, you can move your folder after the installation process, just be aware that it might be the cause of inexpected and difficult to identify errors, related to access rights.

Thanks, that is not a problem, as the partition I want to use is actually NTFS, so no permissions problems.  I was able to install X-Plane 10 there a few years ago without any issue.

More to the point though:  a non-functioning installer for XP11 does not give one a feeling of confidence in the product being tested! I would recommend either fixing the small bug, or omitting the option of changing destination folders for that reason!
