I was working on my route the other night and the games pc crashed. Next day I got a man out and he got it going but I had lost all my previous items due to the lost of much of Windows and had to eventually do a brand new install. However I have a copy of the whole Trainz folder including my route which I transferred from a seperate HD onto it. The route is there of course but when I go to save it says this....

"Session was saved but Surveyor was unable to commit it to the Trainz Asset Database. This task can be completed in Content Manager". I have assumed it is something routine but how do I do that operation?

Find the session in CM and commit.

Make sure that all the .exe files in the root/bin folder have administrator privileges. For more information, see shaneturner1's blog.

Hi this is part of the Direct X 9 package from Microsoft. The best bet is to download and re-install, I believe there is a tutorial on these forums somewhere telling you how.

Download DX9-c redistributable (note that last word), I think the latest version was June 2010.

Correct - the only thing you may see though is that a re-release or minor update was made in April 2011.

Have you had a read of my tutorial in this forum? You need to read the Redistributable tutorial.
