CLOSED can't read FSX folder

Recommended Posts

Hello and sorry if this problem has already been solved somewhere else in this forum, but I checked and I didn't found anything may help me...

 

I use REX since  several years and I never had a problem with it. Recently and suddendly I wasn't able to see some "buttons" on the main interface and I though "let's uninstall and install it again, who knows.."

 

but here the problem got worst: in the beginnig the program asks you to browse and set the simulator folder location: I do what is due  but nothing happens. Is like nothing is working and the program is just an uninteractive picture. I tried to check the version but the pop - up asking the folder still remain there and I  can't do anything else indeed.

 

really can't understand what is going on and how to deal with it.

FSX Steam version (never had problem with REX)

Win 10

can't check REX version

 

thank you in advance for your help

Hi there,

I'm assuming you are referring to REX Essential here?

Please try the following steps first:

1.) Make sure your UAC (User Account Control) is set to never notify.

2.) Make sure REX has inbound/outbound access via your firewall software.

3.) Make sure REX has exclusion rights within your Antivirus software.

4.) Make sure you right click the REX icon and select "Run As Administrator" Let me know how this goes.

hi, thank you for your ready answer..

 

well yes i refer to REX Essential + overdrive HD

I work out points 2 -3- 4 but no good news ..

 

regarding point #1 can you explain me what is UAC and where I find the settings for that?

 

by the way, I use just windows antivirus.. and i already de-activate it totally again and again trying to make it work even during the installation progress than during the operational moment of the program (naturally I tried again as you told me). 

 

thank you again for your kindness

 

 

found out the version: 3.8.2014.1126

User Account Control (UAC) is a Windows 'feature' that is supposed to prevent you from running software that could potentially harm your computer. It is honestly fairly useless, and more harm than help - you know this as the prompt for if you really want to run the program that you just opened. It often interferes with our software, which is why we recommend setting it to Never Notify. You can search UAC in the Windows search area, and it will pull up the option "Change User Account Control settings."

If turning off UAC does not solve your problem, please navigate to the REX folder and you will find a file labeled rexrepairdb.exe. Run that program (without REX running!) and see if that fixes your issue.

Ok, here I am ... sorry for the delay in my answer  but I'm quite always very busy at work 

 

no, nothing has worked. I tried evrything you told me.. but nothing.. really seems the REX menu is just a picture, the picture of himself ...

evrithing has started with the three icons (I just want to fly, I like to create, I wanto to follow a flight plan) that has totally disappeared from the menu. I decided then to unisntall and install the program: with or without antivirus, with or without firewall but I'm still stuck in the moment he asks me to find out the fsx main folder: browse and no reaction. fsx on steam. 

 

I also have Ultimate terrain europe but they never had conflicts. What you think about unistall and install again fsx?

It sounds like you might have a corrupted install of REX Essential. Please do the following:

1. Completely uninstall REX via the control panel.

2. Clean the registry with CCleaner.

3. Re-download the latest build of REX Essential from your previous purchases on SimMarket using a download manager.

4. Extract the new build of REX Essential with 7zip.

5. Reinstall REX.

Let us know if that helps you.

Just to confirm you did fully uninstall, clean registry, redownload, and reinstall according to the post I provided earlier correct?

Can you provide a screenshot of what you are seeing? I want to check everything as thoroughly as I can. :)
