Download Protection
« on: November 24, 2021, 01:33:35 pm »
I would like to buy KCLT for MSFS but it’s asking me do I want download protection. I’m a bit confused as to what exactly it is in the part where it says it mentions about updates. So does that mean if I don’t get this protection I won’t get updates? I don’t feel the need to have this protection. Thanks

The download protection is an optional service from Digital River ( we don't make any money on it ), which we made available because our MSFS products don't have a free Trial with an installer always available and, by default, Downloads on Digital River expire after 30 days. The download protection will extend this period to 2 years after purchase.

However, if you think you are able to store the installer in a safe place, the Download protection is redundant, so you can just remove it from the shopping cart.

And, those that lost their installer and contacted support, are ALL being supplied with a new one so no, it's not as if you don't get the download protection, and you lose the installer, you must buy it again.

So if you update your product do you send us a notification and a new installer then or do we just use the FS Dreamteam updater on our desktop like P3D to update our product.

The FSDT Live Update is exactly the same, and updates FSX, P3D and MSFS product all at the same time. We don't have an update *notification* inside the sim in MSFS, but that will likely come back with GSX...
