manual dowload

Recommended Posts

How do you manually download the orbx stuff since I cant access it on the flightsim store anymore. Just shows order info but no download links. The FTX central sucks. On  P3D sometimes I can get it started but it just sits there. Everything is off, antivirus, firewall and all the other things you said to do. Big PIA.

Hi Tim


Please try this,


Your simulator and all other programs need to be closed first, make sure your antivirus is not blocking it and your UAC is turned off, then try the below procedure.  Also be sure to have HD free space(temp folder) on C:\ that is at least two times the .zip file size so the product can download and extract itself.


Go to FTX Central 3 Settings.

Uncheck the “Use multiple threads for downloads”.

Click on the “Clear Temp” Button.

Click on “Save”.

Restart FTXC3, and try again.



 Please use a download manager for the below manual methods. Below is a good free DL manager, just beware in case it wants to install additional antivirus/malware like a lot of freeware does these days.   https://www.freedownloadmanager.org/   Browser extension DL managers do not work for this.


Alternatively, you can also use a download manager (to help avoid corrupt downloads) such as IDM and do a manual download from your Orbx Direct account web page (this is where a download manager works great) and click on the account button top of page, then find and click on the product info, and in the bottom line small print there is a manual download option, down load it and save it in a named folder, then open FTXC3 and select it, and click on the orange "installation options" and select "Install from my manually downloaded .zip". as per the below links. :)






Also, please post any error logs as per the below topic.
