  1. Thanks again. I did send an email but also want to report here for anyone having trouble with textures loading in FSX from REX. I checked both REX and FSX /Microsoft Flight Simulator X/ and /REX Essentials Plus/ folders and found they were not sharing on my Windows 10 machine. I changed them both to share and REX successfully loaded the textures into FSX. The WX window is still showing that error though it seems like weather is being injected. Details sent in email.
  2. Thanks for your help. At least I know it works on your end. I will try a re-install as you suggested. Looks like I will be saving up for REX 5 hopefully in the near future. I bought REX shortly after I first started with FSX so I never really flew without REX clouds. The default clouds are killing me. 😆
  3. Ok. I also attached the error I get with the weather window. REX.exe.config
  4. REX installed in C> REX Essential Plus. No Overdrive in the folder title. But Overdrive appears on the splash screen. Did you mean REX.exe config file? The REX.exe file is too big to attach The Metar folder is empty. I attached the MetarXML file. metar_report.xml
  5. Hi. I just installed REX Essentials Plus on my new windows 10 machine. I followed all directions for the configure manager, picked my textures as usual and installed. But when I launch the game, I still see default clouds. Also, the weather engine will not load. I get an error every time I try to use it. Any help is appreciated. I seen some threads with this same issue but those people were told to PM or make a ticket so I do not see how/if any of those cases were resolved. NOTE: I read somewhere that FSX should not be installed in the default directory (Program Files x86) Is this true? I really hope I don't have to do that because my FSX discs take forever to install on this machine. It took me many hours to get where I am now installing all my FS stuff. I hope there's a solution where I don't have to re-install everything. Thanks in advance.
  6. Just letting y'all know that I have REX Essentials+ Overdrive installed and working beautifully. Thanks again.
  7. Thanks for the excellent support as usual. I started downloading. I will report if all is well once I install and test tomorrow evening.
  8. Sorry for my delayed response. I went ahead and updated to 20130715. All is working ok. And yes I would like to get overdrive...why not. I hope I didn't move too fast installing SP2.
  9. I downloaded and got it installed. The version number is 3.2.2013.0415. I have a feeling I need SP2 installed(20130715), am I right?
  10. Thanks Tim. I will report back tomorrow as I will have to download overnight. I can say the file size is the same as the one I have in the folder. Though I have a fealing it's the same file, I will download it anyway to be sure.
  11. In that case the "rexessplus_rexess_20121028" I mentioned above is the file I downloaded from FSS that is still there I think. I can't tell what version is in the FSS but would hate to download again if I already have it. My internet is not that fast and it's over 4Gigs. What about REX 4? Ok, I read through this thread: http://www.realenvironmentxtreme.com/forums/index.php?/topic/30764-i-am-way-behind/ I now understand that REX 4 is a new product and not free. From reading that thread I also get that if I install the version I have now, I can go through the auto-updater and be brought up to date. What will I be brought up to? Overdrive is not a big deal for me because there is a favorite cloud set I have that does not require me to have OD. I want to do as little downloading as possible. So do I first get myself up to 20130715 or can I just install 20121028 and do the auto update?
  12. Thanks Tim, but the only thing in my downloads is REX Essential Plus.
  13. It's been a while since I had to do a fresh REX install and I'm kinda lost. I have a folder with a few REX setup files but I'm seeing newer versions I never downloaded. The following is what I have in my folder: rexessplus_rexess_20121028 rexessplus_sp1_20121028_to_20130415 rexessplus_sp2_20130715_patch Do I have to go through all these installs or is there a newer one I can use one time? I used to have Overdrive but REX Essentials with OD is not in my downloads section at FSS (Only REX Essentials Plus). Am I elegible for it with OD? Am I elegible for an even newer version of REX (REX 4) or would that be a new purchase?
  14. I just did a reinstall and installed everything at the root C: location. I'm now up to date.
