Every time I try to download the user objects, my program locks up and I have to force quit and restart it. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Any advice?



Have you updated to version 5.6.0 of AnyRail?

In some cases it might take quite a while to download all the items.

Pretty sure I have that version. I just bought the program last week.

If it's not 5.6.0. (which was released two days ago)
4. Select Check for Updates

I do need to upgrade. 5.5 looks like 5.6 with dirty glasses.

Lets see if that fixes the object update issue

Be happy.  At my age cleaning my glasses doesn't help. ;)  <-- me squinting, not winking (If I picked the emoticon I think I picked, anyway.)

Sometimes just getting up and walking away from the computer helps too. It downloaded the objects in about 15 minutes. Took a while for the first download to work given how many there are.

Just what I needed, new toys to play with.   ;D


There was one nice surprise this week, went to the optometrist (a very cute lady  ;)  8)) My eyesight hasn't changed i.e. no new bi-focals. However I needed something in between the close and distant values. Strictly for computering, modeling and operating trains - how do you like that? So there goes another $300 spent on the hobby.  ::)  :o :o  The light at the LARGE layout isn't really up to snuff, but I'll wait 'til some of the scenery goes in, then I tell my friend that it's time for more and better light. Would be a pity if good scenery has to dwell in eternal twilight, wouldn't it?  ::) ;D ;D

For some folks, it's always one date on their layout and layout is detailed down to that date (car lube dates, etc.)  Maybe your friend always runs the same one hour around twilight?
