I can't download P3D V4 Academic

Postby nick0425 » Tue Jun 20, 2017 11:50 pm


I've purchased a P3D V4 acdamic lisence with no problem, but when I went to the download page, I won't be able to download it, I do get the download link though, it just said unable to connect to the link or time out when connecting to the server.

I've tried Chrome, IE, and Firefox, non of these browser worked, then tried connecting to VPN server in LA and Fremont, it won't work either, so I think it might be a problem with my ISP, tried the network in my office next day, but with no luck.

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

Have you modified your hosts file?

Are there any firewalls or virus protection that could be blocking your connection?

hi !

check your host files (i had the same issue) just delete anything that says "Prepar3d". otherwise, just buy it on your smartphone.. it will also work. just keep in mind that if there is a problem with your host file, you will have to activate P3D from another computer, because the activation will also not work.
