It looks as if Microsoft might have been reading these posts. Well anyway, someone has managed to shame them into fixing the long outstanding download problem. When I tried to start FS2020, it prompted me to reinstall it, and when I did, it started to download the patch again, but this time it didn’t hang on any of the files. It took 4 ½ days and nights to download it on my clockwork adsl connection but I have now got it installed. This is on my back up PC which is the one nearest to the main BT telephone jack. Now all I have to do is find a way to transfer the “one store” files to my main PC so I can play it on either machine. It won’t work with a simple file copy (naturally FML), so does anyone have any ideas as to how to do this?
I don’t want to go through the tedious download process again, and in view of the time it took, I want to have some insurance in case one of the machines crashes.
