further to your reply of my last email.
your reply did not fix my problem
i tried dloading the try it installer and it works ok
then deleted all xplane11 folders
redownloaded the installer
it fails at the same point
it wants to update to latest public beta.
the logfile says its compiled 23nov 2016 and is public beta pb1
we are on pb6 i believe
my questions now are:-
is there an up to date 64bit installer available ,so it doesnt need updating and can complete the install?
can i dload a 32bit installer as atest
can the try it version be upgraded to full version by entering the license ?
its becoming frustrating because each time ,the installer dloads 10gbytes even with only europe scenery selected
log extract below and i think ive attached the full logfile too
