Default Need help actioning update 2.5.6

Hi

I can't seem to get my standalone 2.5.5 to update to 2.5.6

I've tried command prompt as in this tutorial https://www.google.com/search?q=how+...ENLgrQG7365Y23

But that only resulted in a message that said my DCS was up to date.

Help appreciated.

Many thanks.

I've now tried Skate Zilla's launcher. It looks good.

Unfortunately after setup it says:

"The installed version 2.5.5.41371 is up to date."

So that didn't help the issue. Thanks anyway hornblower793.

Hi Flit,

Try the one I show here where you just add a .bat file to the install location.
The files found here at the bottom of the the support site.

Many different ways lol.

Thanks David. I tried that process ...and it may have helped. I ended up spending some more time with the the Skate Zilla updater ... and that seems to have allowed an update.

However, the result is very fragile software and CTD after a minute or so. I read this is common and I guess I'll await another patch.

EDIT: Actually, it's fine. Thanks for suggestions. Appreciated.
