Highwinds CDN fails every time, when it does work it is intermittent and as slow as a wet weekend. Then it just stops.

Left the machine on overnight with no completion. Stopping point is at no particular place.

What do I do?

Hi Peter,

I haven't heard of our CDN being called "highwinds"--are you downloading X-Plane 10 from Laminar Research directly? The digital download speed is determined by your internet connection. We recommend downloading only a little bit of scenery at a time in order to get flying as quickly as possible. If there is a time out, the installer should keep going unless the internet connection is dropped entirely. Please attach a copy of the X-Plane installer log.txt & explain what you are doing step by step and be as specific as possible.

Peter is talking about the update CDN that laminar uses.It constantly freezes or has unbearable download speeds like mine at 49k for a 5.1gb download.
