    May as well sub myself to this thread. Only one change, included the 29th from above before checking in here, so minor duplication is present. But confirms no other updates between these.

    AP Updates and Download Installations
    One important point: when you install ANY AP DLC/Updates, etc always remember to delete the contents of this folder after installation:
    C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Downloaded Installations.
    DO NOT DELETE THE FOLDER ITSELF just the contents!

    AP uses an obsolete .msi method to install their products and the installation leaves behind (in the above folder) files that are the same size as the original download. These files are not needed and should be deleted
    Otherwise, over time, they will occupy huge gigabytes of disk space.

    Good tip. A quick addition to that: if you extract the contents of the archive, you will want to delete those files as well (usually in a folder in the same location as the archive itself). Then back up your downloaded files to another drive in case something goes wrong. That way, the only thing on your drive is what's installed and nothing else. The Class 37 and Mk1 pack are huge files, so this is several gigabytes between them alone with installer, extraction, and .msi files all over the place.

    I've attached an image of a "data" file. If you see Armstrong Powerhouse in the details, this is something left behind by Armstrong's installations. I had about 7 GB in there. Note that extra stock packs and others poke files into that folder as well.

    This thread is updates only and no comments. Posts 11 and 12 should really be in the discussion thread, and I'll delete mine from here when action is taken.

    Just posting a quick update to say there is no update. In case anyone was wondering why there is a lack of updates, that's the update on why there are no updates. Stay tuned for further updates.

    (Seriously, nothing in the last two weeks.)

    I don't understand the purpose of this thread. The update log is a permanent feature of AP's site, so the information here is just a repeat of what's always available there and AP's customers will know where to find the site.

    This thread is updated with all changes to products. The update log only shows the most recent changes, but if you look further up the thread, you'll see changes no longer documented on the log. So this is a permanent log of all updates to the items.

    Danny... the way I see it is that its an easier way to see when AP have updated their products... Peter H is kindly doing this (as a service) for those (like me) who don't regularly check the AP website as I tend to spend more time on this forum than the AP website...

    Keep up the good work Peter H...
