  1. Newbie. Have been searching forum and I know I'm not first to have such challange. Could I ask that you go over signature and advise re anything you see could be problem. Tkx, LEE
  2. I've purchased REX from The Flight Sim store and unzipped the file that I downloaded. When I try to run REXEssentialPlusOD.exe I get an error that reads: "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher" I get this error when I try to open any of the three EXE's that are included in the zip file. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. I'm a long time REX 2.0 user and i know that when REX essentials first was released there was a free upgrade for previous customers/users of REX 2.0. Is that still vaild? How do i get the upgrade? I'm using REX 2.0 Overdrive and as i recall the Overdrive version was not upgradeable at all when REX Essentials was first released. Thanks for any input, Mika
  4. Hello. Thanks for the verification. My name is Phil and my problem is this: I was trying to alter my water textures back to the P3D default. I hit the default button in REX E+ and after that it said that I did not have a P3D licence. Problem being that I did, I had been using it and now I cannot find my confirmation email or a method of reactivation. This leaves my with the prospect of having to purchase the P3D licence again. Can you help me please? Cheers Phil F
  5. Hi I have just installed FSX onto a second machine of mine, and was wondering if you are a previous owner of REX on one machine, whether you could still get the latest build of REX (I have currently got 3.5.2012.1029 installed [is this the latest?]) for free on your second machine. Thanks for previous help Joe Morgan
  6. Well, had a crash in REX today, bad enough to have completely hung my system, requiring a reboot and chkdsk, which found one corrupted file and index and deleted them, no further disk errors remaining. Have uninstalled and reinstalled FSX: Gold, to no avail. Have uninstalled REX, FSX still hangs at splash screen. Doesn't even get to creating fsx.cfg (creates a file but with nothing in it, zero bytes. Everything was running fine until now, with exception of the constant script error with REXWX. Event Viewer gives me a .NET 2.0 Runtime Error for REX.exe, Application Failure. Is my .NET 2.0 corrupted now, too?! I've never had a software program do this much damage to my system in six years of careful, thorough maintenance and updating. An out of ideas.
  7. You cannot upgrade past IE8 on Windows XP, btw. The specs for the product do not reflect this requirement. Would there be any way of enabling use of Firefox, Chrome or Safari as an alternative?
  8. Okey, so when i do a flight plan and then start it, it just takes me to FSX, it dosn't start a flight with the flight plan.. How do i fix this? And also, when i start with Textures from REX, it dosn't change anything on FSX.. It is still the same runways, weather and all :S
  9. Regardless of what weather engine I use, I always see a few cloud sprites/textures that clip through the terrain, even at sea level. I was wondering if this was an intended effect as it looks very unrealistic and kills the immersion. They are not low-level clouds or fog but appear to be misplaced cumulus that stick into the ground, will try to get a screenshot later. Basically, you could have a steady cloud deck at 5,000 ft and then a lone cloud sticking out the bottom touching the ocean or land.
  10. Sorry, I don't keep up but are there any updates for REX and if so how can I find out if I need to download them? I know there are always issues as with all the weather engines out there however, today I flew all over from Reno to Hawaii to Key West, Alaska all over and the program worked like flawless. Just thought I let everybody know it does work.
  11. Hi everybody My name is Kenny and I'm from Belgium I incur a problem with the new REX essential plus. I uninstall the old REX and install the REX essential plus. When the weather is loading inside fax, I have the message box : the weather theme could not be loaded... Is anyone could help me My order number : FSS0170696 Thank you Kind regards Kenny
  12. Im very new to REX just installed about a week ago. I tried to do flight today from KMSP and REX was showing 1/2 vis with snow yet fsx was showing rather clear conditions with vis 10+. Following advice I read here last week i start REX let it load then start FSX configure flight etc then I select "Fly Now" in REX box..then select "load weather" button. i see green bar up top load left to right. then I have to select "Fly Now" in FSX. Does this all seem correct? Any help or advice would be appreciated In my signature I believe Ive included all requested info. ERROR TRAPING FOR REX ESSENTIAL Class Location: SystemXCopy2.xcopyBackupInitial Error: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Flight Simulator X\Effects\texture\fx_2.bmp'. on 2-2-2013 ERROR TRAPING FOR REX ESSENTIAL Class Location: frmWxEngine.loadWeatherEnginePlus Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. on 2-2-2013 ERROR TRAPING FOR REX ESSENTIAL Class Location: frmWxEngine.loadWeatherEnginePlus Error: Exception from HRESULT: 0xC000013C today 2-10-2013 Thanks
  13. Hi all forum from Italy. I try to explain my problem, i have a s.o. Win 7 64 bit : 1) first i have installed Prepar3D on my pc in the root "c:\Prepar3D" (outside "Program x86/....") 2) after i have installed REX Essential Plus on root "c:\REX Essential Plus" 3) after few days i have also installed FSX on root "c:\Program x86\Microsoft Games\FSX......" On Prepar3D no problem, when i use REX with FSX i have this message : "The weather theme could not be loaded. Please check that this file exist and try again" As written on the manual i have give the right permission and sharing to "Everyone" on the root "c:\Program x86\Microsoft Games\FSX......" I have try to "repair the installation" and also to cancel all installation and reinstall REX for the second time but the problem is still here Can anyone suggest me a solution ? Thanks Leonardo (Italy)
  14. hi been awile since iv been on hear can you give link to remove REX 2.0 with essentialess patch, i need how to unistal REX, so i can re instal the new download REX with esential and overdrive drom flight sim store dd
  15. here's the problem - REX Essential + / 3.2.2013.0123 ...start REX EP...weather download process bar regularly loading - then go on WEATHER tab/choose "use real weather data" - there I am on the REAL-TIME WEATHER section...type an ICAO (any ICAO same story)....example LIRF...press [submit]...!!!PROBLEM!!! a pop up window "nearby weather station" is EMPTY...no fields to choose...then REAL-TIME WEATHER page remains EMPTY, no METAR, no TAF no PIREP no W/A... Odd enough, if I push button on bottom left corner [VIEW WEATHER], i.e. satellite image, it works. Tried also thru flight planning but same story - no real weather loaded - no winds aloft displayed. tried to check on REX Essential Plus folder (D:\ REX Ess plus)...there is no folder for Airmet, no for Tafs, no for Pireps - in the METAR XML folder I got one single METAR_REPORT xml file with all METARs downloaded into one single file (as I open it format does not resemble anything like an XML format) Norton Antivirus opened for REX.exe in and out i7 3770k @4,2 GHz 16GB RAM Windows 7 pro 64 bit GTX680 Nvidia Windows UAC turned off ...already tried uninstalling and reinstalling...niet! help thx
  16. Good news from Essential Plus! Now I am getting the weather injection! But... WX engine never shows the aircraft in the right place, and the weather injection does not match with the proper METAR... Errorlog below: might this be related to Windows 7 Region Configuration? In Brazil comma "," is used for decimal separation, instead of a dot "." ERROR TRAPING FOR REX ESSENTIAL Class Location: metardata.add30LatLont Error: Wrong number of arguments used with function in query expression 'metardate = '15-Nov-12' and metartime = '21' and used = 1 and type = '1' and (Val(lat) >= Val(-51,07934) and Val(lat) <= Val(8,92066)) and (Val(lont) >= Val(-78,88753) and Val(lont) <= Val(-18,88753))'.
  17. Trying to give it another go, but after following all the downloading steps and after running the program as an Administrator I get the message "REX Essentail has stopped working, Windows is checking for a solution.....". Have uninstalled and reinstalled twice. Have uninstalled and downloaded the zip file twice more and tried reinstalling. Nothing seems to work. Happy new year!
  18. Hi There, just after the REX Essential Plus release, I installed it over my REX Overdrive copy. Whenever in the air and especially on approach when the weather reloads the aircraft abruptly shifts to one side like if it would catch a strong wind shear, secondly when I am on approach or mid air the autopilot either disconnects or the speedtape starts to go up and down abnormally and the aircraft starts to pitch up and down. I have this only when using REX if I use Active Sky 2012 it does not happen or if I dont use any wheather engine. Perhaps I should reinstall comlpetely new from scratch? I rather prefer to use REX over Active Sky with the Plus edition you have so nicely created, its superb. I adjusted the settings for winds and wind shear etc in the REX setting screen to 0 or 1 but when ever it downloads and injects the weather i have these shifts and the approach issue. Also I should mentioned its is not only on the approach but also happens mid-air or soon after take-off when the speed tape starts to get abnormal and starts jumping up and down which is annoying and I cant read the speed anymore and can't make an approach or fly.

  19. Hi, When 4096 cloud resolution is selected in REX, is it possible (or not) that FSX freezes during a flight only because TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD is 1024 in FSX.cfg file, instead 4096 ?
  20. Hi Guys, like the title says: My REX works fine, i select everything , weather, textures settings... But when i click fly now etc... Nothing starts... I keep stuck in REX, my FSX won't launch or anything else... When i click FLY NOW and then I just want to fly or the other things... My FSX won't start up
  21. Hello I believe I've installed everything correctly using the wizard. The error "unable to load weather profile. Confirm it exists" keeps popping up. The local weather appears to load ok. Just no profiles and no additional graphics enhancement appear noticeable. Any help would be appreciated. I've tried everything I can think of. Dave
  22. Hi all: Im a newbie in REX and I have some questions I can not figure out (Yes, I have read the manual), so I need some advice/information. I wanted to ask if when loading achieved weather for a flight plan, the weather updates itself during the flight. I mean: 8 hours flight Departure: 17:00 (so I load 17:00 Weather) Arrival: 01:00 (is the weather still the same as the one downloaded for 17:00 hours?) Also I wanted to know, if the winds aloft provided in the flight plan screen must match inflight or not. Sometimes the wind deviates more than 90 degrees and/or 50 knots from predicted ones. Thank you for your patience and help, Nuga.
  23. - Appplication installed fine. - Attempting to install textures, app stops responding at REX Texture Engine - Real Environment is running the cloud conversion batch. - I have waited for 30mins, no change. - Ctrl-Alt-del shows app as running. - Mostly at the file cumulus01.bmp - No errors in E:\REX Essential Plus Overdrive\ErrorLog Thanks in advance.
  24. Hi, While waiting for my registration/order number to be verified by the admins here, I have a quick, minor question as a new user of REX Essentials+ w/Overdrive: On my system - WinXPSP3, Dual-Core, 4GB RAM - I run my monitor and FSX at 1920x1280 resolution, 32-bit. So far, so good. I've had this system for six years; it is stable, and does what I want. Since the resolution is high, I have to set the fonts to "Large Fonts" in the Windows Desktop settings. If I set the fonts to "Normal Fonts," text on my desktop is about 1-point font size. I am older than my computer, as context. 1-point text is hard to read. The problem: a _very_ few programs, almost none, but a few, have problems formatting text when set to "Large Fonts" in the interface. Text and interface elements get cut off. REX's software is one of those programs. Is there a setting anywhere, in the registry, even, that I can change so that the text will format properly? It is readable, but it all gets cut off in various ways in the interface. I have searched the forums for some sort of message regarding this, but haven't found anything so far. One smaller point of advice to the dev team: I know these sorts of interactions/dependencies can be near-infinite, but as a new user, reading the manual before installing, being adept at software management generally, I saw no hint of having to set all other add-ons to DEFAULT before running REX's initial backup of default FSX textures. I am running FSX with ORBX scenery, and fortunately, I had reset things to Default FSX before installing REX, and backing up my default FSX textures. I am not clear on whether or not, if I'd had one of my ORBX scenery libraries enabled prior to backing up the "default" FSX textures, I might have backed up the ORBX textures in some cases, and lost my original FSX textures as a result. My advice, and again, I have not found anything explicit about this here, in Knowledge Base, or FAQ on the ORBX forums, is that something be incorporated into the interface for Create/Restore original textures to warn the - particularly new - user that they should set FSX to as much DEFAULT, with no other add-ons enabled, prior to running REX for the first time, to be safe. This may or may not be a problem, but there is insufficiently clear, highlighted info either in the documentation for either company's efforts, or in the online forums (or searchable via Google), to clarify. Again, I realize that the interactions between third-party efforts can be near-infinite, so don't expect all developers to understand all possible use-cases prior to programming a line of code, far from it. But one one of the key things in FSX and the add-on environment is that the sequence and dependency of what you install, on top of what, needs to be very clear before you start, to avoid potential troubles. Anything and everything that FSX/P3D devs can do to really highlight that for us, and make it as clear as day, would be hugely beneficial. Once you get into the swing of understanding what's "going on beneath the hood," it's less of an issue, but there's always that initial period of, "I am pushing buttons and I'm not sure what's happening," even with the most conservative preparation. So it would be good to put up some clear warning signs for newbies to keep them out of trouble, and to save you repeated support ambiguities to constantly be cleaning up after. Thanks for listening! With REX, as with ORBX, I feel like the king of the universe; there's just so much amazing, endless, high-quality work available, I think I'll be set for the rest of my life now (well, ORBX Scotland and A2A Simulations' Cherokee will be in my future......).

  25. So I thought I did everything I was supposed to do to upgrade but must have totally screwed up. I am thinking I need to just uninstall all of REX and reinstall. My question is this. If I uninstall REX what file will I need to bring me back to REX Essential... which is what the last version of REX I had.. I guess a follow up question is what is the latest version of REX? I purchased at the very beginning of when REX was released Thanks for any help possible.
