    There is a separate executable in the download for XNA that must be run. It is the most common reason for Run8 failing to run for the first time.

    Got it to work. I guess reading the instructions is an important part of things. LOL. Thanks for the replies.

    Bingo! Don't guess... be sure!

    And also... Run8 is not a simulator that you ride the cab and you think you are ready to go! nope! no way!
    I suggest you to read everything you can, starting with ALL the docs (some infos are dated, though) and the 2 movies available on Startup Screen, button "User Manual", when you launch Run8.

    Cheers,
    Doc.

    The start ups are very very different than other train sims.

    With Run8, you need to forget most anything you learned in any other train game and start learning to work with a true simulation.

    Very true, I've been a railroader for over 20 years and there is nothing that comes any closer to the real thing than Run 8.
