Evil or Very Mad Hey folks, you have a problem with one of your airplane downloads. I tried to dnld the Cessna Citation 550 on pg 2. of your jet list only to get this damned incredifind crap. It says that link does not exist Evil or Very Mad I don't by it for a second. I'm not going to die if I don't get this plane, but if it's on the list, I'd like to be able to get it. $ Check it out.

Cessna Citation 550

I can't fix anything only Flyaway can but it worked 3 times for me.
Try the download button, it takes a while to start, server trouble? I've noticed that the server is slower this time of night.

You need the unzip utility from to open it.
I use WinZip which is the most popular utility.
As for installation follow my "simple" setup layout.
If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

You need WinZip to unzip the folders.
You can get the trial one at WinZip it's the best you can use and the trial will last for years.

I think I know what you are asking but I try answering two ways.
One, If you cannot find your downloads to "unzip" them, send them to "My Computer", "My Briefcase" or even to "Desktop".
You can enter them from any of those areas.
I download to a folder that I have in "My Briefcase" it's just handy for me that way.
I do it a more complicated way, but it works.
Make certain you have a full aircraft not just textures.

Unzip the file and now it's in it's own little window, you work from there. Dump the jpgs.


dblc on "My Computer"
dblc on The "C" drive icon.
dblc on "Program files"
dblc on "Microsoft Games".
dblc on "Flight Simulator.

Now you have all the folders laid out in front of you.
Follow the directions in the read-me that came with the aircraft.
Put the gauges in the gauge folder.
Put the effects in the effects folder.
Put the aircraft in the aircraft folder; make certain it has the correct name of the plane.

Now go crash land like I do.

I did all the right things 3 times, so I don't think it's me. I just dnld the P-51 a week or so ago, no problems there whatsoever. I think it is the server. I'll try during the day and see what happens.
