  1. Hi, I have just made a fresh installation of Prepare3D v4 on win 7. Then I have installed REX4, Soft Clouds and Softclouds enhanced. No issues during the installation. Starting the application I noticed that the splash screen does not show the SoftCloud logo on the top (see attachment). I am assuming something is wrong as soft cloud seems to be not recognized by REX4. Could you please help in solving the issue? Thanks Massimo spash_screen.docx
  2. I'm sorry I don't understand what to do, but can someone please provide me with the procedure for installing REX Essentials w/od AND REX 4 TD + Soft Clouds into my P3Dv3. I have REX Essential w/od version 3.8.2014.1126 AND REX 4 Texture Direct HD plus REX Soft Clouds. I have these products installed in FSX. I use REX Essentials for the weather engine [fly now] and I use REX 4 + Soft Clouds for my texture themes. I recently purchased P3Dv3 (actually I am currently using 3.3 and have not yet done the 3.4 updating. I have added all my scenery addons and a few planes to this new install. I am ready to add my REX to P3Dv3. I searched, read and tried to find out what the procedure was for installing Essentials and REX4 into my P3Dv3 and I'm sorry but I'm darned if I understand what to do. - I see I need to buy the one time REX access rights for Essentials to P3D....fair enough, I see a buy button etc. What happens after I buy a license for P3D, how do I install it into P3D? How do I install REX4 + Soft Clouds into my P3Dv3, when I launch the installer it asks me if I want to modify, repair or remove my REX 4 installation, there does not appear to be a pointer for P3D? Also when I launch REX 4, it says I should update to a new version, it directs me to the patch, I try to run the patch and I get an error. Do I need to grab and install all previous hotfixs and patches for this installer to work? Checking for updates reads "you need to update to version 4.8.2016.0926, click OK, it downloads a reinstaller file, I click on this exe and I get an error, cannot access URL blah blah blah, I shut off my firewall, installer seems to work, I select "modify" and it runs, then I launch REX 4 again, I get the same notice that I need to update, therefore the installer isn't doing anything. Sorry, but I'm totally confused on what I should do. 1. for the reinstall 2. for updating REX 4 so I can proceed with using is and install into P3D. Bryan
  3. Hi, I recently got REX Essential + OD. I am now considering getting either Soft Clouds (stand alone) or Texture Direct 4 w/Soft Clouds. My questions: 1) Does Texture Direct 4 have the same textures as in REX Essential + OD? or different and better? 2) Will I be better off by just getting Soft Clouds as an add-on to my current REX Essential + OD? 3) What would you recommend? Thanks in advance. veemaniq
  4. I purchased the softclouds add on to go with my REX 4 standalone and when I try to extract the executable from the zip file I get a malware warning. I then re-downloaded the installer and disabled my virus/firewall software (zonealarm) and extracted to a folder on the desktop. When I attempt to run the extracted executable it does nothing, then the file literally disappears from the folder. It is no longer there. It does not try to install anything. I am downloading (and purchased) directly from the REX store. Thanks in advance. Dane
  5. Just purchased Soft Clouds Stand Alone. Have and use ASN...does it matter which I start first...besides the computer?
  6. Hi I've recently purchased FSX: Steam Edition Premium (which included Rex4 Texture Direct). It's now installed and working fine and at the latest build 4.6.2016.0210 I then went on an FSX addon binge (as you do) and purchased REX Soft Clouds (outside of Steam). It is also installed and working fine at build 4.3.2016.0210 (even though the interface says it still needs an update?) Is there a way to integrate my stand alone REX Soft Clouds with REX Texture Direct Steam edition? From the warning listed in this topic, i gather there isnt, but Im happy to be proven wrong. Also, at the risk of continuing down the rubbish Steam addon path, am I better off deleting the Texture Direct Steam edition, and re-starting with an all combined REX product like REX Essential Overdrive? I would much rather prefer to do all my REX modifications from within one application, than having to open multiple different stand alone apps. On that note - does REX Essential Overdrive include all the elements of Texture Direct and Soft Clouds within the same package? It doesnt explicitly say that on the website. Would be nice to see a feature list table comparing all the REX products so I know what Im buying. Looking forward to hearing back and thanks for developing this incredible software. It has totally rekindled my enthusiasm for flight sims (much to the dismay of my wallet)
  7. Hello everyone, I bought Rex4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds, downloaded it and installed it (always with full admin rights, no other programmes other than the installation and windows explorer running) and everything seemed fine. However, when I start the interface, it will pop up for a second then my PC freezes. Like, complete lock up. Nothing reacts anymore and I need to hit the reset button to reboot it. I tried a fresh reinstall and also downloading it again and trying from scratch. However nothing has fixed my issue yet. Any pointers what could be the cause? My Flightsim is FSX:SE. I attached a DxDiag hoping it might help troubleshoot the issue. Thanks Alex DxDiag.txt
  8. Good morning, I have heavy frame drops in clouds or looking at them with latest REX 4 Direct with Integrated Soft Clouds. For me unplayable, before update I had 70-80 fps and when flying through cloud layers or looking at them with your latest patch fps drops to 30. That is not acceptable, I love ur work, but this has to be patched please. In some P3D fb groups many members encounter the same heavy fps drop. With REX deinstalled, my fps are back to 70 & 80 when flying through heavy cloud layers with maxed out settings, so this framedrop issue is REX related. Pls respond, thx very much in advance. Kind regards Tom Weigandt
  9. Hello, I just installed REX 4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds. When the installer was running, I got an error message saying that the: "SQL Server VSS Writer Failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services." I clicked skip, then the installer completed the installation. I then ran the REX 4 application as an administrator and it loaded the application, but there was just a big black box on the screen. I have tried the 64 bit SQL server installer listed in the forum, and the sqlprocess.bat file with no luck. Any help would be appreciated as I have been working on this for hours. Thanks, Colton

  12. Hello, I buy REX Soft Clouds for FS2004 WVHWUBKTN But i am unable to download the same. Please help
  13. I started the update from soft clouds and was told that I would have to first update Texture Direct to version: 4.1.2015.0109 so I did but it failed a minute or two into the installation and gave the error message that I did not have the latest version of Soft Clouds!!!!! What on earth? I have TD4 version 4.3.2014.0812 and soft clouds version 4.0.2014.1223 Gerry,
  14. I'm running integrated TD4 with Soft Clouds on Windows 7 64 bit. When opening TD I'm told I need to upgrade versions from 4.4.2015.0115 to 4.7.2015.0818. I run the download from within TD, without a download manager, UAC turned off, firewall turned off, and antivirus turned off. When I run setup.exe I get the message: This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package. Please help.... Mike
  15. Hi I am having an issue re-integrating soft clouds with REX4. I have REX4 build 4.5.2015.1006 installed and Soft Clouds 4.2.2015.1002. I can only access the stand alone downloads for both with my serial keys and the old integration tool won't work because the correct build (4.3.2014.1210) isn't installed. Unfortunately I did a rebuild installing windows 10 so can't use the update method. Thanks in advance Elfyn
  16. Hi I ordered REX 4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds yesterday and tried to download it today. I download REX Download Manager installation over the e-mail link and started the download. The download started with 6.5MB/sec but then it slowed down until it stabilized at around 156KB/sec. Since the download is very large the full download will take the hole day and night till it's finished. Please tell what I can do to avoid that or if possible send me a direct server download link, where I can download the files myself. To make sure it's not a problem with my computer I also tried it on my laptop with the same result. Thanks a lot Mike
  17. After installing and then installing a cloud set no clouds are seen other than those contained under fsx weather. I have read and re read the instructions until I am blue in the face. I am assuming REX Soft clouds overwrites the fsx weather. There appears to be no change in the texture file. Can anyone help on this, please.Also it is very frustrating having to start and wait for FSX to load each time to see if they do appear. anniesboy68
