  1. I figured it out. Here is my solution: Since the majority of users/downloaders had no issues with the installation on their end, and especially after all of the help the admins had given me thus far (thank you sincerely), common sense told me that whatever issue I was having was on my end. I figured it was either a program I have installed with FSX or other software was causing some kind of issue. I did not want to go through the pain of uninstalling everything and starting over so I decided I would do the unthinkable.. Google search. I searched for common issues with windows software installation programs for Win7 and one of the very first threads I found was regarding the topic "run as administrator". I remembered that one of the only things asked in the installation instructions was to be sure to "run as administrator". The topic instructed me how to go into TRUE administrator mode, which are as follows: Open a command prompt with admin rights by clicking start, typing cmd into the search/run box, and hitting CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER. At the prompt, type: net user administrator /active:yes Then log out of your regular account and back in as the administrator, where you should be able to install the program. When you're done, log back into your regular account and, for security purposes, disable the administrator account using: net user administrator /active:no The other way would be to disable the User Account Control settings, then install the program. and then go back and enable UAC. Disable UAC on Windows 7 Windows 7 makes it much easier to deal with UAC settings, and in fact you don’t have to completely disable UAC if you don’t want to. Just type UAC into the start menu or Control Panel search box. You can simply drag the slider up or down, depending on how often you want to be alerted. If you drag it all the way down to the bottom, you’ll have disabled it entirely. After installing your application, then re-enable UAC. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Once I signed out of my normal user account and signed in by clicking the new "administrator" tab at the sign in page, I navigated to the folder I downloaded Soft Clouds to, the right clicked and selected "run as administrator". WAH LAH! Boom! Pow! Bang! INSTALLED FLAWLESSLY. Up and running now and I hope this may help anyone else having the same issue I did. Gotta love computers! p.s. To Tim and Reed, Thank you very much for your dedication and prompt emails/replies to help me solve the issue I was having. A++++++ customer service guys! Cheers, Matt
  2. I haven't received it yet. I sent you a new email. Thanks
  3. I just re-downloaded the file (rexsoftclouds_sp1_20150109) and I am still getting the same "ended prematurely" error.
  4. I again tried the step by step process above with the same results. This is the error message I get immediately after I enter my serial number:
  5. My .net was current as it would not install, but I upgraded the Sql with the download. I'm still getting the same error message.
  6. I just purchased Soft Clouds and am trying to install it, however, I get the following message: The REX Soft Clouds Setup Wizard ended prematurely REX Soft Clouds setup ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not beem modified. To install this program at a later time, please run the installation again. Click the "Finish" button to exit the Setup Wizard. -------------------------------------------------- I have tried installing this several times with the same result. Your help is appreciated. Matt Win7 64 bit FSX/Acceleration Rex4 Texture Direct version 4.3.2014.1210 REX Essential + Overdrive build 3.6.2013.0415 My Soft Clouds order reference number is ZMQAVAABF Placed on 12/27/2014 11:50:28
  7. Just a quick question. So, do I need to have FSWC and SweetFX installed to make my water look like the REX4 advertised water? I've been fiddling with this for a while now and, like Kosta (are settings are nearly identical), can't seem to get my water to look anywhere near the advertised pictures. Kosta, have you had any luck?
