hello yesterday i purchased x plane 11 from the steam store and downloaded everything needed to play, yet when I try to play the game it will not launch the game. My computer meets the requirements to play the game, any help would be greatly appreciated.

As I usually say, DONT TRUST STEAM.

Get the original game from X Plane, NOT Steam, I never and will never trust steam ever.

Steam always Complicates X Plane And changes it in ways that are very useless. 

I am sorry for my Rudeness, I never trust steam. 

Also, In case it isnt Steam thats the Problem, What are your Computer specs?

Hi TSM_mith,

I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer down under.

Like Timepro I won't be rude I will be blunt.

You should have purchased the official and original version of X-Plane from Laminar Research which bottom lines as supporting the developers of the benefit and enjoyment of flight simulation.

Steam is a 3rd party hybrid taking a commercial advantage of the development work carried out by Laminar Researck.  You made the wrong purchase choice.

There is no commercial connection between either party.

When ever Laminar Research makes a release, the official original X-Plane version users get a notification that it is available like from a beta version release all the way through to the official version release.  At present I understand that the current release is 11.30rC4.  This means that it is still in the development stages sorting out all the current bugs including those bugs found by users when there is a release

When steam makes a release it will be "DAYS" after the official release by Laminar Research.

AS you can determine, I don't support steam
