I´m so tired off this kind of error message in PTA. I really hope REX will come out with the new shader software, Environment Force, very soon.

Sorry search is not always your friend.

I have done that procedure like 10 times and I get the same result.

I'm using PTA 2.66 with Prepar3D V4.5.

I have tried deleting the shader folder and running the client and I have tried deleting PTA and running as Administrator on a new copy.

 

Sorry but it shouldn't take all this ...

If you are deleting folders, of course they can't be found.

99.9% of the time, reinstalling the client will fix things - the idea is to restore the original shaders (we cannot distribute them due to legal issues).

Once you've done that, running PTA as administrator (right click > run as administrator) will force PTA to create backups of the restored original shaders. Then you can tweak to your hearts content. 

It's really not as difficult as you're making it out to be. The errors are quite simple. If it's not found, it's because it's not found. If it can't write the the shaders because they're not the original ones, you need the original ones. 

If you still cannot get it to work, send me an email and I will arrange a teamviewer session to show you how it all works.
