    Monon d0 Files

    I,am Downloading the Monon Route V17. Do I Just Place the d0 Files to the Monon Route Folder Since they are Not a exe File. The Download Instructions don't Really Specify how to Install them and I Don't Wan' to Mess it Up?
    Thankyou,

    Hi Dave,
    Put the d0 files into the same folder as the .exe file then run the .exe file - it will pick up the d0 files but you won't necessarily SEE that it's using those files, but, trust me, it is

    Cheers,
    Ged

      Gad,
      Thankyou for the Help, but I Decided it's Not Worth the Effort to Install the Route. I'll Stick to the Downloadable Routes that are Easier to Install.

        You’re missing out on one of the best freeware routes available. Honestly Monon is not that difficult to install

          Monon is difficult to install?... That wasn't my experience at all, and it really is one of the showpiece routes for those of us who love Midwest railroading.

          The D01 files are spanned zips, something that many of us were doing back in the dialup days. Install all the EXE's and D01's into the same temp directory, and you'll be fine.

          It's an 8.5gb route, so there's really no "single file" download option because of the terrtex.

            I can see why this route install may seem daunting at first glance, but the effort is well rewarded with a superb route. There are 9 files to download, of which 5 are exe files. These exe files are run in turn from Main through the Terrtex and finally the OR users update.

              I Was Very Impressed with the Route and that's what got Me So Interested in Downloading it. But I'm Used to Just Downloading & Installing a Single File Route Package or a CD.
              I Really Would Like to Download it But I'm Not a Bit Familiar with the d0 File System.
              I'll Try it Again but I May Need a Lot of Help. I'm Getting Pretty Good at some things but I'm Far From Being a Computer Whiz!

                OK,
                I Downloaded the 17-1 exe File but it Shows up in My Downloads File as an Installer, not as a Folder, I'm Downloading the d0 File Now so Where do I Go From there Once the d0 File is Downloaded?

                  There should be eight files, nine if running in Open Rails, and ten if adding the activities. You need to put the first eight into the Temp Folder: 4 .exe and 4 .d01 to install the Route. Then add (run) the OR update zip if you are running OR and/or the Activities zip if you want to add the activities, into the Route Folder.

                      I Installed the MONON-2 17-Main and it Created a MONON-2 Folder. Do I Now Direct the exe for the Additional Files to the MONON-2 Folder?
                      Do I Delete the Completed exe & d0 Files?

                        All the exe and d01files should remain in your temp folder, and not be moved to your actual route folder.

                        I'd keep the exe and d01 files until you know that your route is up and running. If the route is running exactly as expected, that's the point where you can delete the installers. It's a lot of files to download if you need to start over.

                          I Have MSTS Installed but I Run Everything on OR so I Assume I Download the OR File.
                          Once all the Files have Been Installed into the MONON-2 then do I Just Copy it into my C: Train Simulator Routes File?

                            Careful of Monon-2_17-con-act-serv-tr.exe

                            ​Do not install it if you are not going to get all the trainset files for the activities provided.....

                              You unzip it either in the Route folder, or copy/paste the resulting files from a Temp Folder into the Route Folder.
