Issue after installing 1.1 patch

Recommended Posts

And it is quite serious one. After installing the patch, the whole content of ORBX folder is wiped! Every single file except FTX Central. During the installation all the files were there, and the moment after the installation finished the files are gone.

I installed FTX Global again, and I'm currently on 1.0 until this issue is solved.

 

Any suggestions?

Did you make sure FTX Global was ticked In your FTX Central App before installing v1.1

 

If you had a region like PNW or Europe selected this might have been the reason.

It was ticked for sure, I checked. Also how FTX Global can be unchecked? There is no other icons there, only FTX Global.

Also, I don't have any other ORBX region installed at the moment, only Global.

If you had other regions it could have been unchecked.That is why i asked.

 

Hope you get it sorted out.Just had a night flight into KLAS the lights were amazing.

 

Best of luck

I have the same issue, after installing the update, my OrbX folder is completely gone! Sigh. Now I have to reinstall everything all over.

Phew. Don't get me wrong but it is sort of relief that I'm not the only one having that issue. :)

Waiting for ORBX to provide some suggestions.

I hope there's a fix for this soon. Sucks since I own a lot of addons for OrbX, I will have to reinstall each and every one again.

UPDATE:

I tried to patch Global on my brother's PC, during the complete reinstall of win7 and FSX on my PC. After finishing reinstalling FSX and Global on my PC, and after installing the 1.1 patch, everything seems to be fine. The difference is, I bought Global, and now I suspect that my brother isn't (probably pirated version). After some comprehensive googling I found that this patch will kill ORBX folder if pirated version is found, so I must say my brother is an idiot. I support FSX developers from the beginning, and in the next room my brother is using pirated stuff the whole time, apparently. Unbelievable!

 

I have no issue with my legal version of Global, so you can lock this thread for good.
I apologise for any inconvenience.

 

P.S. this is maybe good, because it is a clear message to those who are using pirated software!

Now wait a minute...what is this bs!!! I am thinking twice about installing this update! I see people complaining of the same issue on the Orbx forums too! This is really unnacceptable.

 

edit: so this is a copy protection thing, or is this a bug in the update???

Honestly, I dno't know. One thing is for sure, I know that my brother used/using illegal versions of various FSX addons, I already had unpleasing experience with that  couple of years back. I really don't know why I was so desperate to use my brother's PC, when I know that he is probably using illegal stuff. I saw that he has Global installed, so I wanted to install the patch and see the difference while waiting FSX install on my PC to finish. He mentioned that he tried Global few days later after it was released, so I presumed that he bought it too. Stupid me.

This might explain the "silence" from ORBX on their help forums.

I guess I'm just that lucky one again.  Installed the FTX Global 1.10 (update) with no problems.

 

I went through Orbx's forum and found one thread with a couple of people stating they had the same problem.  When asked for their order number of FTX Global, they didn't answer.  So, I'm wondering also, do they have pirated copies?

 

Hope you guys get this figured out.

lol absolutely freaking hilarious if this is indeed the case.  The funny thing is I remember people posting about how money was tight and they couldn't afford addons, then suddenly days later were talking about how good Global is, the PMDG 777 is, and so on...  :lol:

I'm sure there's rampant piracy, unfortunately. If ORBX has found a way to wipe illegal installations, wonderful; there are a lot of ambiguous support questions with all these new releases, and it must be disheartening to have to get support requests from thieves.

There should be an FSX default icon in FTX Central as well. You have only ONE icon in there?

When you have global installed it replaces the default icon with "FTX Global."

I too noticed both users didn't post their order numbers

 

Piracy should not be allowed tolerated in any shape, way or form.

I have FTX Global installed, and I have two icons. One for FTX Global and one for default FSX.

That happens when you install an "older" FTX product or patch after you installed FTX Global

 

Then You should install the latest ORFBX Libraries from their support page.
