  1. Ah! Great! Thank you Admin! I will use it in the future - much easier than having to manually do the stuff :-) And, BTW ! Soft Clouds is JUST GREAT! both in FSX:SE and P3Dv2.5 !!!
  2. I found the solution at an MS SQL support blog here: http://www.skimedic....ual-Studio.aspx Applied all steps and it worked beautifully, so, I am tempted to believe that it might have been caused by the Win 10 November 11 upgrade ( ? ) but I am not absolutely sure... Anyway, REX Soft Clouds now works :-) Just in case the above link dies, here's the transcription of the content: [BEGINNING OF TRANSCRIPT] "LocalDB is a (fairly) new, stripped down version of SQL Express 2012. It doesn’t require a service, so it can be deployed much easier along with your Visual Studio project. It’s a great alternative for applications that don’t need all of the power of SQL Server, and where you don’t have control over the target machine to ensure that SQL Express is installed. In fact, many of the samples available from Microsoft use LocalDB. Are you using LocalDB? It’s easy to check. If your connection string starts with “(LocalDB)\v11.0”, indeed you are. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Except when LocalDB doesn’t work. I ran into this issue on my main development machine. I tried reinstalling LocalDB (there is a separate install on the SQL Server Express download page), uninstalled SQL Express and reinstalled, you know, all of the usual tricks. No luck. After much searching on the interwebs, I found this TechNet forum post: http://social.techne...orum=sqlexpress which pointed to this TechNet article: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4609.troubleshoot-sql-server-2012-express-localdb.aspx To sum it up, open a command window (preferably running as administrator), and navigate to where the LocalDB general instances are kept (%localappdata%\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances\v11.0), and type: >sqllocaldb create "v11.0" If you receive an error similar to this:"Creation of LocalDB instance "v11.0" with version 11.0 failed because of the following error: LocalDB instance is corrupted. See the Windows Application event log for event details." Your LocalDb needs to be deleted and re-created. Fortunately, it’s easy. Enter these commands: >sqllocaldb delete "v11.0" Response whould be similar to “LocalDB instance "v11.0" deleted. \” Once you’ve cleaned out the corrupted instance, re-create it: >sqllocaldb create "v11.0" LocalDB instance "v11.0" created with version 11.0 And that’s it! You should be able to fully take advantage of LocalDb in your projects now."[END OF TRANSCRIPT]
  3. Yesterday I installed both LM P3D v2.5 and FSX:SE on my rig, and then proceeded directly to the usual install of add-ons, including REX Soft Clouds ( my only REX product so far ). Ah! Yes I already registered at the Support Validation Thread!!! Back to the problem: I am on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, with the latest November 2015 patch installed. FSX:SE and P3D v2.5 are both working OK, with PMDG stuff and ASN ( latest version ). When I run the REX Soft Clouds installer, it finishes apparently with no errors. I cut & paste the serial, and when the program starts, instead of a user interface I get a black screen, and eventually a windows error reporting some problem happened with the application... ? Any suggestions ? I have repeated the install process a few times, uninstalling the program and the associated DB MS product it also installs, but whenever I start it I get the same black screen on the UI. Thx for any suggestions / support
