Full installers coming today :)


Recommended Posts

Great news!

 

Until now I was unable to install 1.5 at all. Since day 1, whenever the installer was running, sometimes really near completion, it crashed due to servers traffic.

 

Great to learn that the full installers will be made available, possibly already today!

 

Good work ED !

Well The installer did copied files from my branch installation and then download the rest of the files from the download server. After a while the download stopped because the server saturation. I tried the installer again and it said me I should repair to download the rest of the files, I did and all work perfect.

 

Some people just don't do repair after the download and the DCS crash. Just repair and all is done

True, but now now that the original installer repository is down. They will upload full installers later today.

 

But, please tell me - what should I have used to repair ( where's the corresponding executable ? ) , after my install terminated several times with that server overloaded message ?

 

Thx Raven - really looking forward to try 1.5 :)

Same drill as with standard version - click on repair shortcut in Your ED start menu shortcuts (a separate set for Open Beta should be created during installation process). Or, if the shortcuts are not there, go to Bin folder of the Open Beta and fire up the DCS_updater.exe with repair parameter.

 

Did it yesterday when reinstalling the whole thing fresh and the the download from ED server seized at 90-few percent. The repair script downloaded and installed the remaining files allright.

Ah!

 

Thx Art-J. I guess in one of my tries I did start the DCS_updater.exe, but it wasn't from the command line with that "repair" parameter ... Anyway, it stopped in the middle of the download with the same server overloaded error message :-/
