How do I uninstall the Gotthard Panoramic Route?
NOTE! The uninstaller that came with version 1.01 had reportedly deleted unintended files. Please DO NOT USE the uninstaller! Version 1.02 has no uninstaller to prevent problems.
When you want to uninstall the GPR, please do so manually by deleting the following folders:
Some freeware assets will remain on your system after this. If you want to also remove these please use trainworx utilities.
My virus shield says that the installer contains a threat..
TrainworX installers are compressed (packed) during installation to bring the file size down. Several antivirus programs, including Windows Defender (as of January 2019) incorrectly flag these installation files as a virus (normally marking them as TrojanWin32/CryptInject.E). This is because the antivirus cannot ‘unpack’ the installation files, so it just assumes they are a threat.
It is important to understand that there are no executable files in a Train Simulator add-on. All it contains is the data for the train or wagon (textures, geometry and the simulation files), so there is nothing in the installation that could be considered malicious. It is purely the antivirus software’s inability to unpack the file that causes these messages.
All TrainworX installers are clean. All add-ons are checked by VirusTotal against 60 or more different antivirus engines.
At this time there is no permanent solution to the issue. All installers have been sent to the different antivirus companies, including Microsoft, in an attempt to get them on to the ‘white list’ but TrainworX has no control over the time it will take for this to happen (if it ever happens).
For the time being, the only workaround is to temporarily disable your antivirus software during installation (and possibly also during download) if you see the Trojan false positive message.
How do I uninstall TwX add-ons?
NOTE! We have found serious issues with some versions of uninstaller programs. They will delete ALL ASSETS and not only the CwX or TwX folders. Please DO NOT use the uninstall programs of the following add-ons:
- Re 620
- Re 420
To uninstall any TwX add-on WITHOUT using the included uninstallers please do the following:
- Navigate to your Railworks Assets folder (Typically C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\RailWorks\Assets)
- For the RABe 511 navigate to /TrainworX and delete the folder: TwX_Rabe511. For all other add-ons navigate to /CreativeworX.
- Remove the folder of the add-on you wish to uninstall:
Re 420 pack and Re 420 172 : CwX_RE420
Re 421 pack : CwX_RE421
Re 620 pack : CwX_RE620
Re 460 pack AND IC2000 : CwX_RE460
All freight wagons : CwX_SBBFreight
IMPORTANT! Please ALWAYS make a backup of your Railworks environment BEFORE uninstalling or deleting anything. Especially the /Assets and /Content folders should be backed up.
