    as I understand it you have three choices.

    1. Download it (preferably over night if you have a 56k or slower.
    2. Employ a good friend with fast connection who can download in about 40 minuites
    3. Check the http://www.x-plane.com site and pay the small fee and have it sent on a CD. Note you will need the version 5.xx original CD to use the upgrade.


    Hope this helps


    regards

    PC Pilot magazine has the upgrade (v5.56) on its July/August coverdisk. If you can get this mag where you are, it's a cheap way of getting the upgrade.

    Hello x-plane users,
    thank You all for the tips; now Iīve got a Update CD from someone. The new version is nice (new clouds, new B777/747 cockpits etc.), the only problem is, that when I exit the programme, it sometimes forces my windows display settings to 800*600 -- but my default setting is 1024!Thatīs a little unconfortable. Also the MS Speech engine version 4.0 is not supported by the programme, it may nesessary to load down the latest version 5.0 !? (also a huge download, several mbīs).
