I tried opening Fenchurch Street up and it said that the demo has expired so I went to the license manager and removed the license from the computer then allocate it to the computer again but that hasn't worked. Please can someone help me?

Are you using the latest version of Fenchurch and the Loader?

marquel4194 - West Hampstead is a simulation that you have to pay for a license to use. If you haven't paid, you won't have a license and you won't be able to use the sim for more than a short demo.

Just for confirmation, are other Loader sims working correctly, please?

What happens when you use the "Check for Updates" button on the main Loader window?

I don't know if it will work for you, but, when a play a payware sim (Multiplayer or solo) with the license manager logged on, My problems disappeared...

And if possible try to reinstall system files and the specific "sim".

Cheers,
Thiago.

Go to the Downloads section, get the latest System Files and install them and with any luck it will solve the problem.

Last night I fixed two issues (amongst others). Firstly, if a user does not have any licenses for any sims then the sim pauses every few seconds. A Windows call was hanging if the file didn't exist. I now check for the file's existence before the Windows call which eliminates the delay.

Secondly, the demo time should now be working properly.

Oh, and a third one. As a client it's not been possible to set two or more routes in quick succession for a while now. That's been fixed.

The exe is with some testers and will be released ASAP.
