Frequently Asked Questions - RW_Tools

Why don't I see TS2017 Routes such as 'Donner Pass' listed in the Check Route or Edit Scenario screens?
All new routes and asset packages from RSC are now packed in the form of .ap files - These are in fact uncompressed zip archives, apparently intended to make it difficult for users to alter their routes by, for instance, swapping rolling stock they don't have for those which they do. Thus forcing users to purchase more DLC from the Steam site. However, RW_Tools can overcome this - see the .ap files tutorial.

When I click on a route in the Check Route screen, no scenarios appear. Or no Assets appear in the Edit Assets list.

This is usually because the required files have not been copied from the Railworks folder into the RW_Tools folder - it should happen automatically, but some times does not. You should manually copy the latest versions of the following files into the RW_Tools folder:-
Serz.exe
stlport_vc10.5.2.dll
zlibwapi.dll

Why do I get Error 75 or Error 52 or Error 53 when I try to run RW_Tools?
If you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 then you must run RW_Tools as administrator (using a login with Administrator's rights is not enough). To do this, right click on the RW_Tools.exe file and select Properties/Compatability and click on the box 'Always run this program as administrator'.

When I installed RW_Tools I was told that SAWZipNG.$$ could not be found?
This happens if you did not install the Full version of the RW_Tools installation package as Administrator - To fix this, download the full installation package from my site, unzip it into a temporary folder, and right-click on the installation program which will be something like Inst_RW_Tools5028b.exe and select 'Run as administrator' from the drop-down list. This will correctly install the required files.

Why do I get a message that files like c1sizer.ocx can't be found or can't be registered?
As above - This happens if you did not install the Full version of the RW_Tools installation package as Administrator - To fix this, download the full installation package from my site, unzip it into a temporary folder, and right-click on the installation program which will be something like Inst_RW_Tools5028b.exe and select 'Run as administrator' from the drop-down list. This will correctly install the required files.

Why do I get a message that SuperPicture2.ocx is not registered or is missing?
SuperPicture2.ocx is a file which displays pictures in various formats, it MUST be in the RW_Tools folder. Depending upon your PCs security settings, it may need to be registered. To do this, run RW_Tools and from the Options Menu select the option 'Register SuperPicture2.ocx' and then it should work OK.
