  1. Ok thanks, Tim. I will move all of these to my 'Downloads' folder on My Passport (WD) external hard drive for safe keeping. MZ.
  2. Hi Reed, Well, after a loooong install, finally..............I think everything's working ! (it even seems REX E+ is responding faster to mouse clicks etc. and is launching the sim even quicker than before, if that's possible ?). I re-installed REX today, and only had about 1/2 hr to play with it with no problems whatsoever. I am quite optimistic things have been 'fixed', but will get more 'time' to test it next week. One question, I have is regarding some 'housekeeping' clean-up procedures after the install. I have REX back on my C:\ drive outside of the program folders (as pictured below). I also for some reason wound up with several WinRAR folders etc. there. Could you pls. let me know which of the REX items below I can safely 'delete' ? (ie. 2 autorun ?, 15 WinRAR archive ? REX E windows installer ? REX setup application ?) I have Smart Defrag, and plan on defragging the HDD. Would you recommend to also defrag the REX and FSX folders ? Thank-you, again, for all your help. I am back to flying in misty, hazy, real world conditions, and loving it ! MZ
  3. Thank-you, Reed. I received your email and new link just today, and will attempt another install on Dec.31st. The holidays left me a bit 'pressed for time' , but I will definitely follow up on this on the 31st and let you know how things went - with a follow-up post here on this forum. Milan.
  4. Hi Galen, Thanks for you response, now that I know to deactivate Kaspersky prior to downloading, I will. However, ........ could Reed Stough, or someone else, please send me another link to the REX Download Manager (and Serial Key, unless I can use the same one provided in Reed's email of Dec.19th ). The wait for your answer has caused the link to 'expire'. I now get a message 'The link you're trying to access has expired' and cannot proceed with the download. I will resend you my email if you need it. Thank-you, MZ
  5. Also, while awaiting an answer, I am spending my time browsing these various forum posts, and have come across something interesting. I am curious why I was not told 'this' when I first posted this problem on Dec.16th. Perhaps this could have saved me from my current predicament ? Please see the link : http://www.realenvironmentxtreme.com/forums/index.php?/topic/32213-hotfix-for-REX-ess-od-3820141126/
  6. Another option : When I downloaded the original software from FSPilotshop, back in May, 2014, I also requested backup software discs (total of 3 CD's) for the program which I have. I guess, I can try to do an install from these, but then, I would somehow need a 'key' for the software and would have to update to SP3, then update to the 'SP3 Hotfix'. Not sure if this method, or your direct download link in Reed's email (once the antivirus issue is straightened out) is easier/faster ? Just trying to give you guys options, to get things sorted out faster. Thanks again, and I will await your guidance. MZ
  7. Hi Reed, I followed up on your email today and completely removed all traces of REX E+ with OD from my computer, did the HDD defrag, cleaned system and registry with CCleaner. However, I am now having problems downloading the REX Download Manager from your link. I click on the yellow bar at the bottom of the screen to 'run' the program and I get a popup from my antivirus program Kaspersky Pure 3.0 saying something like 'download contains some sort of potential virus or spyware' and Kaspersky will not let me run it. I know this is absurd and don't believe it one bit ! I read on this site some blogs about disabling antivirus software prior to doing any downloads or updates from this site, but I downloaded the SP3 Update for REX E+ with OD with Kaspersky left 'ON' without problems. I don't want to fix one thing only to find something else 'broken' or ? . I trust anything from this site as being safe for download purposes, but I am just puzzled to no end how Kaspersky can figure out that a download deemed 'safe' and from a reputable site, can possibly have anything even remotely resembling any virus ? How is this even possible ? I guess, I just want some 'peace of mind' advice re how to proceed with re-downloading REX E+ OD. Thank-you, MZ.
  8. Thank-you for your help. I will look into this and re-install REX E+ with OD this weekend, when I have more time, and then let you know how things went. MZ
  9. Hi Guys, Tried to install the REX Ess. Plus w/OD SP3 HOTFIX several times from your provided link,..... and no luck. The installer stops and I get this pop up on the screen : How can I get it to work ? I right clicked on the second line 'setup' application (above) and then 'ran as administrator' . The 'RETRY' key doesn't work (just get same pop up again). I never tried the 'IGNORE' key as did not want to mess anything up. If I right click on the first line (above) which is titled 'windows installer' one of the options in the 'box' which appears is 'install' - should I use this method ? Your instructions do not say anything about this. Deleted and tried to re-download link again, today, with same result. Confused , pls help. Thank-you, MZ
  10. As I had mentioned already in the title, I have tried many times to download with same issue each time. It does not want to download even if I try to delete the link and re-download it from scratch. Today being no different from yesterday.
  11. OK, will try the link. Thank-you, MZ
