DCS: Update 220.127.116.11
Some support they have; all is rosy as long as you're lavishing praise their way. LOL!
In any case, is anyone else having this difficulty? I'm willing to PM them about it, to save them blemishing their delicate and pristine public face. The point is, it needs to be addressed, and I'd like to join forces with others who are having the problem.
Or otherwise know who might have found the fix. I certainly haven't...
I'd send a ticket just as a FYI, but I'd probably completely reinstall at this point.
I'm just wondering; those who had problems and those who didn't. Who has Nevada and Normandy installed? Who only Nevada?
Or did everyone have big issues?

LOL! You never know, with DCS. When setting the weather at anything but default can cause server timeouts and crashes (ask Tracer, he knows!), missing components like a theater that the update is looking for hooks to could just as easily cause that update to corrupt the program / update process. This sort of oversight seems to be becoming more frequent on ED's part as DCS grows more and more into an external module / dependency rich, huge, unstable monster!
But, as I said, it was just a thought, and I'm glad to hear that you had luck with only Nevada installed (as I have installed, no Normandy). I wanted to know if it was worth the time to reinstall, right off the bat. Thanks for the info!

That's what it came down to, eventually. It really has been a saga, on this occasion. It kept updating, then immediately deleting everything it had just installed, both with repair or update. Hours and hours of the computer left on. Strangest case ever, that I've seen.
Anyway, just finished the complete reinstall, now downloading Nevada and the modules. Hope this works.
I'm getting scared of DCS, now.

Did it "verify integrity of files" before? That used to take a bit on my machine but this update it was like *SWOOOP*! done in less than a second, and did something very similar to what you described, hence the reinstall measures I took
But hey, who needs working installers anyway?
