Now that the website has been restructured, the SPs for X3 are nowhere to be found. Is there any plans to put these on the FTP server?
Yes there are plans. In the meantime here are direct links to the patches required to bring the retail (boxed) version of X3 to the latest build (220.127.116.118)
Service Pack 1
Service Pack 2
Hot Patch 4
I just installed WPx3, and when I attempted to install the service pace (#1), it said it could not find the program, and to make sure it was on my computer. It is on my computer and I worked in it? really confused.. why is this happening?
What is your version of X3? (Help > About....) The version will be listed as a number like 13.0.0.xxx. What is xxx? It could be that your X3 is already at the SP1 level or beyond.
Try to check if you have the right version of x3 installed.
