  1. You need to reinstall the client module. Once you’ve done that, take a copy of the ShadersHSLS folder in P3D then should things not work, you can just restore them by copying them back. Also, once you’ve done that please make sure PTA is running as admin. Right click > Run as Administrator
  2. You can literally get the latest version by visiting the thread pinned at the top of the forum: You don't need to re trigger the prompt. It's an entirely new version, new executable.

    PTA Ver 6.2 Errors

    Reinstall the P3D CLIENT module only. Once you've done that and you know your P3D version, look at this thread and download the correct version of PTA: Once you've done that, extract it to a DIFFERENT folder than one you've used before and run it as administrator. Activate it and then load/apply your preset. That will fix it.
  4. Delete the settings.res file in the same folder and then re run PTA if you want to re trigger the prompt.
  5. Hi Vernon, Yes, it will. It's the one I use myself on 4.3. Thanks.
  6. Hi there, Quickest way is to reinstall the CLIENT module only of Prepar3D. It wont uninstall any of your addons, it will just reset the shaders to the original ones. Thanks.

    PTA Help Please

    I will have a look into the cloud.fx error.
  8. lol Adam, ever considered a career in Marketing? 😄 Thanks for the in depth reply - worded it better than anything I could have put together!
  9. Sweet - glad it's sorted.

    Update Error

    You need to reinstall the client module of Prepar3D.
  11. The activation servers are working - so it's definitely not an issue with that. Are you running PTA as admin? Also, what part of the world are you in? If you send me a PM with a link to your order I can take a more in depth look.
  12. Since lots of people run various versions of Prepar3D, and each version of Prepar3D has it's own specific needs in terms of shader support, I've compiled a list of PTA versions and what Prepar3D releases they support. You can read more about the individual PTA releases here: LATEST PTA 2.62 - Prepar3D v4.3 only - DOWNLOAD PTA 2.61 - Prepar3D v4.2 only - DOWNLOAD PTA 2.60 - Prepar3D v4.0/v4.1 only - DOWNLOAD
  13. Hi all, We recently just made v2.62 of PTA available for users that have upgraded to Prepar3D v4.3. You can find the download via your order page on the SimTweaks website. Please note: Due to shader structure change within Prepar3D v4.3, some of the tweaks in PTA v2.62 will NOT work in previous versions of Prepar3D. If you are not planning on upgrading from Prepar3D v4.2, you do NOT need to upgrade PTA. There isn't any new functionality in PTA v2.62, just compatibility with Prepar3D v4.3. Thanks, Matt.
  14. Definitely permission related. Just run PTA elevated (as administrator) and it should fix it.
