  1. Hi I have downloaded the full enhanced Texture Direct and Soft Clouds from FlightSim Store i.e. rextdsc_sp7_20170818.zip, extracted to a temp folder, right clicked on the installer to Run as Admin, UAC set to never notify. A small graphical user interface / window flashes on the screen very briefly and disappears again then nothing happens - screenshot attached just before this small window disappears. Running Win 7 64 bit, Prepar3d v 4.1. I believe this and/or similar errors have been reported and redirected to Tier 2 support. Please advise re: next steps and/or resolution? Thanks #FSS0464994
  2. Hi I just reinstalled Prepar3d v2.5. I then reinstalled REX Essential Plus Overdrive - build 3.4.2014.1126. Real weather works fine however for some reason/s random weather themes just do not work. I have tried several times at different airports and checked that Simconnect is installed ok. Please advise me steps for resolving this? Thanks.
  3. Hi I believe I have just solved the problem. I deinstalled REX and then installed my REX original purchase which was build 3.1.2012.1028 that I had backed up. Previously when I had the problems - I downloaded/installed the version that is in my FSS account now - which is a later build version of 3.4.2014.1126. I then installed build versions: 3.7.2013.0715 3.8.2014.1126 3.8.2014.1211 After testing with generating 2 random weather themes and installing the textures, when I press 'Fly Now', the REX weather radar now appears, the main REX interface minimises and the green bar notifications appear in Prepar3D v 2.5. So all good now. My query can be closed as resolved now. Thanks for your prompt Tier 1 Review response.
  4. Hi I had to reinstall Rex due to some operating system and driver issues. I did a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit and REX plus Overdrive which is now at version 3.8.2014.1126. The installations have all appeared successful. I installed the downloads as follows into the same directory with successful installation notifications each time. 'REXEssentialPlusSP3' (from store purchased at) then 'rexessplusod_sp2_upgrade' then 'rexessod_sp3_20141126a' (both from REX website). However: 1. I cannot see the REX weather radar window after pressing 'Fly Now'. REX weather radar window does not appear anywhere. The main REX interface disappears too. Only Prepar3D 2.5 appears/opens. I do not see any green bar appear in Prepar3D 2. The weather in Prepar3D appears to be default each time i.e. no real weather depicted based on airport chosen nor any theme weather if chosen (installed textures in both cases) 3. I noticed on opening REX Essentials Plus Overdrive that the download of weather does not happen either I have specified the correct Simulator folder location and ticked/checked the Enable REX weather engine, Enable auto-start the REX weather engine, Enable auto launch the flight simulator, Enable green message bar within the simulator and Enable weather data download. Please advise.
