    Eric that is what we are doing now just a lot of work though, fixed the cab errors now working on sound errors (172 pages) according to MSTS_check.

    Interesting... I've run into similar issues in the past -- removed half the trainset folders, and it would work. Gradually added batches back until I could narrow down what it was barfing on.

    If you are getting a crash to desktop then normally, but not always, an event is generated in the Event viewer. Open the event viewer (Start > Run > eventvwr.msc) and go to Windows Logs > Application. On clicking the Application icon it may appear blank for several minutes, just wait for it to populate.

    See if there are any Error or Warning event generated at the same time of the MSTS crash.

    Cheers,

    Marek.

    On the start screen see if you can go to options. Maybe the kids changed something like textured skies?

    this has nothing to do with OR just MSTS it fails to go past the start screen

    Hi John,

    There is no need to move anything to OR, OR can find it where it is installed for MSTS?

    Did you install Bin? Did you perform this step of the install process?
    From new "DLLs" subfolder in root of game choose your language folder and copy string.dll and dialog.dll and copy them into root of game. Confirm replace original ones.

    Hi John,
    Sorry, mate, but you've not directly answered my question. From your comments, it looks as if MSTS is not installed correctly. Just a guess, but it could be that you don't have the full GLOBAL folder - it's as if you're trying to run a route set up for Open Rails with MSTS. There are several files in the default GLOBAL folder which MUST be present for MSTS to run.

    Cheers,
    Ged

    Hi; After the start screen, it shuts off when you toggle the drive trains icon, no activity or anything else (I use OR myself but the kids use MSTS )
    Thanks

    Hi,
    derek : I think you mean "many of us have moved to OR"!! I still run MSTS for those routes designed for it, although in many cases I have to admit that, generally, OR runs them better!

    John : which route/activity are you trying to run? There are many reasons why MSTS won't run, not all associated with activities and/or stock!

    Cheers,
    Ged

    Unfortunately this happens with MSTS for a lot of reasons.

    You can check the rolling stock with working activities.
    You can check the route with other activities.

    This is a large reason, most of us have moved to OR.
