Hi guys,

On a newish Win 10 OS I have just installed x-plane 10 from disks and running updates using the seperate installer (not direct install from CDs)

Wow, how slow can you go. States it is downloading from Highwinds CDN, 1 server and downloads speed shows at 0 with in excess of 600 hours left to go. I can see files ticking over very slowly but this is ridiculous.

Speeds at the start were as high as 300+ and completion was to be within the hour. But now blah!

If I stop it, will I have to redownload everything again and can I tweak something to improve this chocking performance?

Depending on where in the update it stopped, you may not be able to fly X-Plane, but you will not need to reinstall everything. Try running the installer again and picking the update. It will scan your files to see what's missing/needs an update and will pick up where it left off.

Hopefully it was a single glitch and a second attempt will go successfully.

If you continue to have problems with downloading an update, here is a troubleshooting step to take:

1. Who provides your internet?

2. How fast does that say your download and upload are?

Thanks jroberts for your reply. Got it sorted after sitting on update with 605 hours showing to complete. I stopped it and turned off my firewall and Eset Nod32 virus protection. Restarted the installer, choose to overwrite files and got things done in about 1 hour. Speeds fluctuated wildly from 1650Kbs down to 5Kbs but lower speeds were infrequent. All is well now and flying happily. Thanks.

What did the update do, because it just might of been a big update.
