XPlaneUpdate is a utility that makes it easy to keep your version of X-Plane up to date. The latest version allows the user to fine tune exactly what files and folders are used and ignored when upgrading. For more information, click on Read More.

We're proud to annnounce the availability of XPlaneUpdate1.26.

We have hundreds of satisfied subscribers who've learned that once you try XPlaneUpdate, you'll never want to go back to the tedious process of updating your X-System manually.


New features in version 1.26:

  • Powerful Ignore List feature allows you to easily fine-tune exactly which files and folders XPlaneUpdate will ignore when updating your X-System.
  • Confirm Files To Get allows you to see every file XPlaneUpdate has determined you need, and allows you to easily remove any of these items.

These 2 new most-requested features allow you complete control of your X-System / XPlaneUpdate experience. Now you can customize your X-System any way you want, and not have XPlaneUpdate overwrite your files.



#1 These powerful new features, if not used carefully, may result in a non-functional X-System.

#2 If this happens, simply clear your Ignore List, use the "Clear File Cache" menu item, and let XPlaneUpdate get everything it needs (you can still use the Confirm Files To Get feature to review / edit these files)...

#3 If you've previously downloaded/installed XPlaneUpdate, you don't have to download it again as the Live Update feature will automatically download/install version 1.26.

#4 We have made some improvements in the connection detection and other parts of the application, so you may want to download and install the new version of the main application from our website.

Download iconDon't forget... We have a huge selection (over 24,000 files) of free mods and add-ons for FSX, P3D & X-Plane in the file library.  Files include aircraft, scenery, and utilities  All are free-to-download and use - you don't even need to register.  Browse on down to the file library here.
