For me, after deleting the sim from the Simulations directory, it reinstalls when I go to 'Check for updates' and choose 'Install/Update Automatically'.

I don't remember now how I deleted it. I probably deleted the East Coastway folder from- Users, Public, Public Documents, SimSig, Simulations.

Doing that doesn't delete the sim, just the sub-folder that contains the sim splash screens, saved games etc. Perhaps you need to go to Users > Public > Public Documents > SimSig > Simulations again and delete EastCoastway.sim as well as the sub-folder. You may even need to go to Users > Public > Public Documents > SimSig > Timetables and delete the eastcoastway sub-folder there as well.

That may prompt the Loader to reinstall the sim as Edgemaster suggests. The sim will then be installed but will only run in demo mode unless you buy a licence through the shop and then go to the Licence Manager from the main SimSig loader screen and allocate the licence to your machine.

Licenses are actually not touched by deleting these files as they're stored in the Windows registry, so if you have any licenses you don't need to worry about them.

Licenses are not Stored in the windows registry the are stored in the simsig folder in public documents in a file called Common.cfg

I don't have any East Coastway sim, or timetables. I can't find any mention of East Coastway on my machine.

What version of the Loader are you using?

I now have East Coastway installed by downloading it on my mother's laptop, & transferring it across. Since doing that it reappeared in 'check for updates' on that machine.

If it did not appear on "check for updates" on your machine but did appear on another machine then there is something wrong. That was the point of MarkC's question. There is a gap in the updating process for the loader where loader versions installed before the change will not upgrade to later versions of the loader and updater. If you are running the latest loader then there is a bug somewhere that needs to be found and corrected so that others don't suffer the same problems as you have done. If you are not running the latest loader you need to download the system files and install them again after which the updates should all work automatically.

Can you let us know which version of the loader was in use when you were having the problem so that any potential bug can be eradicated.

Solved! I had forgotten that the 'advanced' button on check for updates gives a 'hide' option, & East Coastway was marked as 'hidden'.
