RESOLVED Slow configuration update

Recommended Posts

I have installed REX 4 Texture Direct and when I first log n I need to choose which simulator to load it in to etc. The problem is that Texture Direct is so slow in recognising when I have clicked on a sim and then to allow me to choose the folder it resides in that it comes up with not responding in the title bar. If I leave it for around 5 minutes it will eventually kick back to life but then when I try and make another change it again appears to hang for the same period of time. This cannot be normal. Any thoughts on how I could fix this?

Run a registry cleaner tool, this sounds like a registry problem, not a REX issue.

Thanks, but I had tried that previously after reading another forum post with the same problem. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Texture direct and still have the same problem. I persevered with the slow update and updated all settings but then when I had finished and went to load textures it took me back to the red banner that comes up when you first log on and all my settings had disappeared.

Thanks for the quick responses and update. For your info, I tried again and after 25 minutes had all settings saved only to have them disappear on me when I went to the textures bar to set my textures.

PLease do the following:

 

1.) Uninstall REX 4, .net framework 4.5, and SQL Server Local DB and its associated files.

2.) Run a registry clean and defrag of the hard drive.

3.)  Where you have the install files for REX 4, install the .net framework 4.5

4.) Then install the SQLlocalDB files (install the 64 version for your machine)

5.) Then install REX 4 using the setup.exe files.

I have done all of the above and still have the same issue of extremely slow response to configuration and then when I do get to the end offsetting it up REX 4 will either CTD or lose all configuration settings and require me to put them all in again.

 

Just to ensure it was not my install file I downloaded a fresh version from FSS and installed in to the default location during setup.

 

Thanks for the continuing assistance.

Hey all,

 

Quick update to say after a lightning strike and rebuilt computer this problem has gone away. Not really a recommended rectification process but it did work.

 

Many thanks to Tim, Reed and the team for their persistence and attempts to sort the issue out. If I didn't know better I would suspect the strike was organised by the team to get my machine running smoothly again. ;D
