Installing old MSTS-Addons

Post by MrReset on Sun Aug 21, 2016 5:10 pm

Hi there!

I've found OpenRails ( ) and want to install all my old MSTS-Addons.
- German Railroads work
- ProTrain work
- X-City Addon works
- JNR 1 & 2 work
- KHP2 works
- Bridge Line works
- Severn Valley can't be installed. I click on the setup, but nothing happends. Start the setup as admin, with Win98 & WinXP comp., but no chance!
Has someone a tip how to install this addon?

Thanks a lot!

This is a new one on me. I looked at the site ( and it appears to me that the program is compatible with Microsoft TS material.
However, there's no mention of OpenBVE I can see there. And OpenBVE has never been compatible with any MSTS material (and vice-versa). Different animal altogether, old chap!!!

You can find links to the free OpenBVE program elsewhere on this site. For information on routes, you can start here:

I'll give you reasonable odds the installer is probably looking for the MSTS path in the registry and not finding it, as you've only got OpenRails installed.
MSTS registry entries:

Will take a look and see if I've got a Severn Valley disk in my stuff pile at some stage Smile

Mildly off topic FWIW:
openBVE will actually load MSTS ACE format textures if you want it to.
