FTX Vector 1.51 available

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Next update for Vector is now available through FTXC or via the manual download in your account.


Please read the following to help you with this update.


  1. Vector is a large product with over 78,000 files, therefore that is a lot of file checking FTX Central. You need to be patient and let it scan the files and install. 
  2. If using the full manual download, you may wish to extract the zip files contained within (there's 193 of them) into a temp folder on your desktop and then use the "I already have a backup" option in FTXC3 and point it to that temp folder. This saves FTXC3 extracting these files and I find it to work well personally.
  3. If you are having issues with the download of the update, use the "Clear unfinished Orbx downloads" function and turn off "Use multiple threads for downloads". These options are under Settings in FTXC3. 
  4. Make sure your sim is not running, have seen many support posts where the sim is running when trying to make changes in FXTC3. You will get error messages if the sim is running. Similarly with Anti-Virus software - make sure the sim folder and FTXC3 process are excluded from real-time scanning.

Important information:


If you are receiving errors after this update in the AEC auto-scan function, please do a search in the ORBX\FTX_VECTOR folder for these files:











If present, delete them and the AEC auto-scan should work.


Apologies for the inconvenience but this will be a temporary work around while we work with Pilots to understand why these files are causing the issue.
