Hi, I just bought X Plane 11 today.  I tried to enter product key and download it but it keep says there was a problem installing and I don't know why. Thanks

Below is the log.txt

Can you make sure your firewall is not blocking X-plane installer?
It could also be just a temporary issue, so trying again later might work.

Now, can you confirm what GPU you have? From the computer specs listed in the log, you should expect a rather bad simulation experience, even at minimum graphic settings, it might even be hardly playable.

Check the recommended specifications here :
You should have tried the demo first, as suggested by Laminar Research in the link above.

Best regards,

I have same issue. Please advise how to extract log.txt.

The log.txt can be found at the root of X-Plane folder.

It is always better to include the entire file, not just extracts.
