Hi Guys

After leaving XP11 on the shelf for a bit over a year decided to spin it up and purchasing some Orbx scenery.

Pretty much no matter what I try I'm hitting the Error 56 when running the update. I'm not a Steam user.

On my new PC have tried fresh install and demo install. Last tried copying directory structure from old PC, activating, and then using About to update.  Same result.


0:00:12.136 D/WIZ: Advancing from wizard step "Welcome" to "Pick Destination"

0:00:12.136 I/DST: Set initial target to C:\Users/admin/Desktop/Xplane11/X-Plane 11/

0:00:14.464 D/WIZ: Advancing from wizard step "Pick Destination" to "Check Servers"

0:00:22.384 E/NET: Download failed with error: 56 for URL

0:00:22.446 D/WIZ: Advancing from wizard step "Check Servers" to "Finish"


Any bright ideas?

Hi Guys

Closing the loop on this.  Retried the next evening and it worked (phew!), only difference at my end was on the successful evening I was also concurrently downloading other updates to the PC, which would really surprise me if that was the fix.

I did capture the failed event in wireshark, what I saw was a TCP reset coming from CDN node, either while or immediately after the is downloaded.
