Can a moderator lock this thread, Please? We're on 2.3 now. There's no need to continue discussion here.
Well the live version of ED is still on 2.2.03 so this thread can remain open. It's only the beta test system that's on 2.3
 
Sometimes it seems pretty clear to me that small background patch has come down. I say this because on some game starts, all the video issues need to be regenerated. And I do not allow auto-update on my graphics. So, something else had to change. Can we get a posting on what happened?

A rebuild also happens when you switch over from GTA V or Xplane to Elite. That has nothing to do with a patch.

This makes no sense. Do they override the graphics table? I thought the Graphics table was stored in the ED game folder.
 
Greetings Commanders,

I’m just posting up to confirm that we have an update making its way to you this morning. The servers will be going down at 10:45 AM GMT and will be down for approximately 2 - 4 hours. We’ll let you know if there are any unexpected delays on this thread.
Soz, but I don't know where else to put this. I'm trying to load ED onto a computer I've just 'inherited', but every time I try to launch it, a message tells me that 'A newer version of the launcher (0.4.5499.0) is available and must be installed to continue playing. Check the News section for information and updating'.

Then I click on 'Yes', and am automatically taken to this thread, posted on 22/10/15: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/193497-1-4-01-update

There is no sign there of how to aquire the update, unless I'm being blond. I bought the game about five years ago, about the time I joined these forums, to be more specific. Do I need a different update now? I wouldn't have thought the game had changed so much, my old disc can't figure out how to find what it needs. I've been updating fairly regularly on my old computer, though I haven't had much time to play. The 'new' computer has Windows 10, so could that be the problem?

Completely the wrong place bud.

this is the part of the forum you seek.

You can download the launcher from the ED website - click on Downloads (top-right), suggest trying the smaller download (26MB) first.
Or use this direct link: http://hosting.zaonce.net/elite/Client-Installer.exe

The above will give you Launcher version 0.4.5912.0 which is (most likely) the minimum version you need (and the one I am using so I know it works).

But as Micky suggested, I strongly encourage you to post something in the Support section as otherwise FD won't get feedback that their links/processes are broken (they really need to pay a bit more attention to this sort of thing as it must be very off-putting for new players and/or players who are not comfortable with PCs).

Cheers. I hope I can get help there. Figuring out downloads/installation isn't my strong point...

Thanks for this, I'll try it for starters. I re-posted in the other place as well.
