Just finished downloading 3.5.0 nightly-full.exe

What next? I ran this, it installed, and it said that I need base data files. I checked in /FlightGear 3.5.0 and it shows files inside fgdata. Also, on the site it launched when I pressed download there is no 3.5.0 data!!! What do I do? It was the Windows 3.5.0 nightly full .exe one. Don't tell me I have to download multiple GBS at 40kbps which is what my speed was cloning fgdata. Until I closed it when I saw FG3.5 apparently had the fgdata already.

Do you start it via fgrun? If so double check it is not pointing FG to an older fgdata directory (if you have one, otherwise that cannot happen).

No, using the new launcher! I tried using my 3.2 FGRUN, will it work :o :?:
COOOOL! It loaded-- at least started. Now will it finish? Will it let me fly?
I cannot believe this. It worked! :D

you may want to take a few screen shots and help document the whole experience for others wanting to do the same, i.e. by adding your screen shuts and a short intro to the wiki
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,
