Hello,

Have you verified the md5 checksums match those listed on your download page? Are you using a download manager?

Regards,
Kayla

Hello,

That means that the download did not complete correctly. We usually recommend using a download manager to ensure a successful download.

I have tried downloading this multiple times on different computers (MAC and PC) and the hashes never match for all the files. I've tried downloading the bulk zip file about fifteen times. I've also downloaded the individual files many times. Always there are problems with the MD5 sum and the files won't extract properly. This seems to be happening to a lot of people since the new hotfix. I just purchased this and can't even install it. When is this going to be resolved?

News from here.

I don´t know if what I did really concerns, but I've got finally to download it. Here goes my procedure:

1) Disabled security stuff (anti-virus, firewall and so forth)

2) Started download via Microsoft Edge browser under Windows 10

3) At 12%, the download proccess paused unadvertently. So I let it as it was

4) About 2 hours later, MS Edge offered me the button option to resume the download, which was clicked


= = = = =
After that, the download went well till the end.

IMPORTANT: For me, the download process took about 14 hours!!! So, be patient

P3D v3.4.18 now is installed and working correctly!

^^ That shouldn't, really, be an issue (if the server is set up right; usually BYTE RANGE HTTP - by default, anyway :)), btw.

Here's a couple of quick links:


Oh, and:
