    Did you install the main MSTS from the 2 CD's according to the tutorial in the PC_Tech section of this forum?
    Did you set the correct user permissions for the Bin installation?

    If not, you are in for a world of hurt.

    Lightbulb When All Else Fails - - Read The Instructions.

    Okay David,
    I understand no Win7 or Vista. I just assume noobs have Win7 but if you don't, that's a very good thing and saves you a whole lot of trouble.

    Then you probably did not install Bin correctly.
    Why would I say this? I sincerely say this not to annoy you.
    It's because of the simple fact that you failed to copy in the dialog.dll and string.dll, which ARE clearly spelled out in the install instructions.

    Since it is evident that you didn't bother to read the instructions you possibly have other missed steps as well but that is impossible to determine at this point.

    My advice?
    Start over from scratch as there isn't much you can do to fix a borked install.

    Umm, one last thing (important!!)
    Be sure to read the proper method to UNINSTALL Bin!!
    You cannot use the normal Control Panel method or you will further trash your MSTS.

    Looking over the tutorial (almost four years old?!) I left one thing out - test each engine you intend to use in a consist as the only engine, make sure all engines have a working cabview. If you try to "jump" to an engine that does not have a working error free cabview, it will cause problems.

    Goto this site, click Download on the left side, on the next screen at the bottom download the "Work Release" version 1.8.052113. This is the latest version and the one with all corrections made. Although it says "Work Release" that is because the author has stopped working on BIN and never updated the page.

    Do not attempt to install BIN without reading and following the directions. The download includes the manual.
