Longer is better. I am a simple man ;)

I am a tad confused, I noticed that yours shows for directory C:\REX Essential Plus Overdrive. When I was reading the instructions it tells me to keep it in the same directory as REX 2.0 I have mine
I have it located in D:\Real Environment Xtreme 2.0\

when I install Essentials should I change it to:

1. D:\Real Environment Xtreme 2.0\Essentials Overdrive

or do I just keep it the way you have it on the video

JP, that's because the video is assuming that you are starting with REX Essentials Plus then adding the Overdrive pack. Not with REX 2 that would be a whole different process altogether. I think another video coming....lol

The best thing for REX2 users to do is go to the store where you purchased it and log into your account and there should be an updated DL of REX Essentials Plus there. un-install REX @ and then install REX ESS Plus.(follow video directions)
Once you have REX ESS Plus installed continue to follow the video directions to install the Overdrive pack.
