Hi Trout:

Welcome to our Tech Forum. There have been many threads written on the subject of correct RWFF installation (on XP, Vista and Windows7) and on how to install custom outings on this forum. Please start with this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2963

In 90% of the cases you DO NOT need to reinstall the RWFF simulator. Almost 95% of problems related to non functioning installations are due to improper file path, and file missing problems.

These are the common problems of RWFF installation:

1) XP can use the default RWFF install path. Vista and Windows7 require a slightly different install path for the program to work. Please see the above thread.

2)Before you can use the Custom outings, you need to update your RWFF program to V.128 You can download this update at Pishtech website or at the club house.

3)If you intend to download and use Custom outings, you need to go to the club house and download, and install ALL the fish, food and sound files and put them into their proper folders. If anyone of these files are missing when you use a custom outing, you will get errors which may result in seeing a error warning message, computer hang, etc.

4)Make sure when you download the food, fish and sound files that the downloaded folder has been expanded, and you copy the visible and individual file items into their respective folders. Food to Food, Fish to Fish, Sound to Sound. Otherwise you will end up with what we call a "Nested Folder" and the files will not work when they are Nested. (If you need more help on this search the RWFF Forum for "Nested Folders").

Hope this will get you going and will resolve some installation issues for you. Please look at the various thread written on this very subject and you will get your answers there.

Hope this helps! :P

Regards,

Stanley (Yellowstone7)

Hi Trout:

Sorry you are still having some problems. The file verification is a great feature of RWFF for trouble shooting even though it takes a bit of time to run. Please allow the verification to run fully, then if any errors are detected, it will tell you what is missing in your RWFF setup. You can find the "content_error.txt in your main RWFF program folder. Can you post the error text here and we can have a look to see what is missing or needed.?

By the way, you can't run the custom outings when you are running the demo version of RWFF. Make sure you have the paid RWFF before you use the custom outings or it will not work. :P

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Stanley

Hi Trout:

Good trouble shooting there. :P The Zander is the problem. It is probably a missing, or a corrupted Zander fish file. Go to the Club House and download the fish file which has the Zander in it. Reinstall this new fish file into your "FISH" folder in the main RWFF folder. When asked to over write the existing files click yes to all. You will now have a fresh copy of the fish file.

Hopefully your RWFF program will now load and you will be fishing very soon. Please let us know if this solved your problems.

Don't forget to post and share some of your catches with us on the RWFF forum. :P

Regards,

Stanley

Hi Michael:

Sounds great! Another happy RWFF flyfisherman! :lol: Outing making is a lot of fun and many say it is also very addictive. If you have some good fishing water in your area this will be an excellent idea! Part of the fun here is to see and share the many different types of streams and lakes and oceans that some members fish. Looking forward to seeing more of your posts on the RWFF Forum. :P

Regards,

Stanley
