Installation manager looping with large files,

From day one I have had no issues with the download Manager getting past smaller files, once it hits large file it loops many times, restart the sim sometimes does help me to get past the large file, Once I get to the tutorials it will loop for days.. Luckily I got past them with a few go arounds but I'm having a lot of issues with this HUGE file and I cannot seem to get around it, The % counter is so SLOW I cannot even get to %1 my download speed is plenty at 40mbits/s, I have been waiting 5 months to install this and I still haven't completed the installation.. ykkykyky.png

Up to 5 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 4.8 MiB each and 23.8 MiB total.

i also get that happening with that particular large, multi-part file, and I Have a > 1 GB Internet connection.

Rather than wait forever, I have found if Task-Kill MSFS, and delete all the already downloaded parts of that file, next time I start MSFS, it successfully downloads all the parts, and the install completes.
May not be the recommended solution, but it works for me -- might work for the OP.
