Version is not available - problems installing modules

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to install module I own, but getting an error "Version is not available"




Any idea what could be wrong? or is it just temporary problem on ED side?

Try this, then:

  1. Browse to \DCS World\bin\ (or DCS World OpenBeta\bin\)
  2. Open "cmd" Windows utility
  3. Drag and drop the DCS_updater.exe file from the \bin\ folder into "cmd" window
  4. Add " update" (it's important to add a Space before the word update)
  5. Press Enter

If your PC is up to date, you should get this exact message (notice the .1 at the end of the version number):




Once this is done, attach a screenshot of the same window and tell us if you're able to install your module (is it the Bf-109K?).

Sorry for hijacking this thread but I have the exact same problem . I just bought the F-16 module and when I want to install it it gives me the same error.

I did the above ;I see that the installed version is with the .1 but still the error that Version is not available.
