[DOWNLOAD] Plan-G V3.0.3 (build 56)
« on: March 08, 2013, 07:47:52 PM »
This is Plan-G for Microsoft Windows 7, Vista and XP, FSX SP2, FS9. and X-Plane 10


PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST BEFORE DOWNLOADING THE FILE!


To download: Click here.

To install: unzip the downloaded file to a folder of your choice, then run SETUP.EXE


To update from an earlier v3.0:
NOTE: You should make a backup of your My Documents\Plan-G Files\Data folder before proceeding. The contents will not be overwritten, but it's better to be safe. After the update you do not need to rebuild your database.

You must uninstall v3.0 before you can install v3.0.3. The uninstall procedure will NOT delete your plans or data files.

Unzip the downloaded file to a folder of your choice, then run SETUP.EXE

To update from 2.0 or earlier:
NOTE: If you have created user waypoints, you will need to export them, and import them into the new version. Imported waypoints will need to be reimported
If you have downloaded DEM tiles,  you will need to copy them to the new location: My Documents\Plan-G Files\DEM

You do not need to uninstall 2.0 before installing 3.0, and 2.0 can still be used afterwards. MAKE SURE YOU INSTALL 3.0 TO A DIFFERENT FOLDER THAN 2.0 TO AVOID OVERWRITING FILES.

Unzip the downloaded file to a folder of your choice, then run SETUP.EXE

Windows 7 & Vista users
It is suggested that you run both the setup program and Plan-G itself "As Administrator". To do this, right-click the icon and select Run as Administrator from the menu. Alternatively select Preferences for the icon, go to the Compatibility tab and check Run As Administrator. This will be a permanent setting.

It is also advised that you choose an install location away from the Program Files folder structure. This is due to Windows file permissions issues that can prevent proper operation of the software.

Elevation Profile
In order to use the Flight Plan Elevation profile feature, introduced with version 0.9.1, a suitable Digital Elevation Model (DEM) must be installed. This can be downloaded for free from the NGDC 'GLOBE' (Global Land One-km Base Elevation) website at http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/topo/gltiles.html You need to download and install a minimum of one tile to enable the functionality. You do not need to download and install every tile (no elevation data will be shown where tiles are not installed). Downloaded tiles must be placed in the My Documents\Plan-G Files\DEM folder. e.g. My Documents\Plan-G Files\DEM\f10g is the tile that covers the U.S. Eastern seaboard.
