Getting Ready for Prepar3D Download

As you know, Prepar3D will be available on Monday next week for purchase and download. The Prepar3D application is a very large file!  The download will be 10.5Gb and the SDK will be an additional 304Mb.  A download manager is a must in order to download successfully and ensure a restart if the connection is interrupted for any reason.   You could download without it if you have a solid reliable internet connection.  Any good download manager that can point to an FTP or HTTP download address will be fine.  I have successfully tested wxDownload Fast (an open source download manager app) with
