    The first time, I clicked Update in the Launcher.

    The Second time, I ran the Launcher so it would download the Patcher, then quit and ran the Patcher directly. I was concerned about the Launcher having a file open that the Patcher wanted to update, because I thought I saw an error message in the Patcher log that implied that. Something about an output log. There were no errors at all in the second patching.

    One annoying side effect of the Patcher is that because it runs a Windows utility to propagate ACL's, my settings.cfg ends up read-only. That problem has been around forever. That Patcher script is a little excessive in that it runs the utilities to change file ownership and propagate ACL's on all files and subdirectories in the ksp_win folder. It's not really necessary to cover all the mods I've installed in GameData, it's just a waste of time. Patcher should limit it's update to files it's downloaded and not just shotgun everything.

    @LordFerret I feel your pain with a slow DSL connection. I have the same problem. I recommend you use a download manager that can restart downloads. I use DownThemAll in Firefox.

    I use FDM, the restart refuses to function with their site.

    I unpacked the zip I finally obtained. 15 minutes into a brand new sandbox game in v1.1.2 and I'm hit with this AGAIN in the VAB.

    Never even made it to the launchpad.


    I have no more words at this point.

    No. I go to the KSP site (https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php), click on the Store and log into my account; From there I click on and select my download... I go for the Win Zip versions. Unfortunately I have a slow DSL connection, I have to work with what's available to me. Downloads from their server are agonizingly slow (3 to 4 hours), and are usually interrupted with those pesky HTTP 403 messages. I have consistently had this problem with their site, since my first download v0.23.5; They are the only site on the internet in-which I experience this.

    After my last post, I launched yet again another download and left the house to run and do errands. Gone several hours, I've just returned now to find your post and a completed download. Hallelujah.

    HTTP Error 403 Forbidden


    The Web server (running the Web site) thinks that the HTTP data stream sent by the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) was correct, but access to the resource identified by the URL is forbidden for some reason.

    This indicates a fundamental access problem, which may be difficult to resolve because the HTTP protocol allows the Web server to give this response without providing any reason at all. So the 403 error is equivalent to a blanket 'NO' by the Web server - with no further discussion allowed.


    Again. 50%

    I truly am getting tired of this.



    And again. 32%
