X-Plane 11 constantly tells me that there's an update.  However, all attempts to update end up with an error. This is a screenshot of my last attempt.  This is a digital download version and I have updated the installer.

And my computer configuration...

I resolved this problem myself by dumping the file in question and running the update. This time it worked perfectly!!

Hi evernow. I am very new here but have had the exact same problem. Can you tell me which file you are referring to "dumping the file in question".

Hi Abkyou,

If you look at the first screen shot in my post (for X-Pane 11), you can see that it says, "Finished Web Update".  Underneath that it reads, "The technical problem was..", followed by the pathway to the errant file.  I followed that pathway and deleted the file listed ( and ran the update again. That solved the problem I was having.  The problem file on your version of X-Plane may well be different but if you have a message like the one shown in my screenshot, you should be able to track it down.

This beta version seems to have a few issues but, no doubt, Laminar are working hard to iron out the bugs!  If you continue to have problems, let me know.  I'm no expert and am very much a beginner with X-Plane, but I may be able to help.

Thanks evernow, much appreciate your assistance.

I did delete the problem file and ran the updater again, only to find another file with an error, and then another... and another and so on.

I think I may need to download the entire app again as many of the .dds files are zero bytes in size...

Thanks again.
