Hello Pete and all:

I have been unable to download the latest version of FSUIPC5.13, as I get an "An error occurred during download. Please try again" message.

This has happened on two different computers. (Windows 7 Pro, in both)

Any guidance is appreciated.

Roberto

I need to know which place you are having problems with — here in Download Links subforum, or over in the Schiratti site?

Hi Pete:

Sorry for the delay (babysitting duties).

I get the same message when trying to download from the Schiratti site (it says version 124 over there).

Anybody else highlighting this?

Pete:

I just tried to download another add-on, just to see if something is blocking the download at this end, and it downloaded OK.

Well, I don't know what to advise. Sorry. It dowsnloads fine here. Are you sure it isn't a virus checker at your end objecting to it for some reason?

After all, that's two different download sites -- and furthermore the two files are not by the same name. The one here is called "Install_FSUIPC513.zip" and the Schiratti one is just the usual "FSUIPC5.ZIP" (as it has to be to maintain links in many places)*. 

The fact that it occurs with two differently named files certainly implies it is something at your end disliking the content. Try temporarily disabling your virus checker.

Pete

*  And Enrico hasn't yet updated the text there to say it is 5.13, but it certainly is as I've proven by downloading it and opening the ZIP.

I finally managed to download and, as you suspected Pete, it was totally on my end.

Allow me a few lines, to spare any grief for anybody else.

I use Internet Download Manager (IDM) for all my downloads.

I checked Google (what else?) and found an answer.

The download address, is: "https://fsuipc.simflight.com/beta..... etc"

All I had to do in the refused download, was to delete the first "s", so that the download page now read: "http://fsuipc.....etc" and IDM was happy

Go figure!! All's well that ends well.

Thanks Pete for the patience. And thanks Tom for chiming in.

I am happy.

Cheers

Roberto

Strange. I also use IDM on my main PC, and I don't need to do that! And the "https" part is correct -- it just means that it is "secure" (needs a password or registration?).

I use Chrome for my browser and IDM is an App added to it, so it operates as part of Chrome and therefore within its registrations.

Anyway, I am glad you found a way to do it, albeit rather mystifying.

Do you have a link to the Google place you found which explains this, as I'd like to know more? Thanks.

Pete

Hello Pete and all

Just to properly close this thread, I just wanted to advise that, upon uninstalling the Microsoft Windows Updates which were automatically installed on May 7, 8 and 9, all issues disappeared, and IDM is working normally.

I have told the IDM folks about this.

And, of course, I have changed the Microsoft updates settings, so that I am always asked before one is installed.

Cheers!

And a Happy Mothers Day to all the moms in the forum and to those moms who are somehow associated with it!!
