This article provides a step by step guide to installing TANE SP2 "Platinum Edition" using the DVD installer.

Step 1. 

Insert the DVD Disc into your DVD drive

Step 2.

Double-click TANE Installer.exe to begin the installation process. The following screen will appear:

Step 5.

The default location is as shown above. If you're happy with the default location for your installation, click Next.

Otherwise change the name to a folder name that doesn't exist.

NOTE: If this folder already exists, your install will show the following warning.

We recommend that you click Cancel and then change the name (e.g. to Trainz A  New Era Platinum) then click Next.

Step 6.

When you see the screen below, click Install to begin copying the installation files to your harddrive.

Step 10.

You're now ready to follow the Registration guide to register Trainz and unlock your bonus DLC content.


1. "Path not viable: Filepath already exists"

This error indicates you are trying to install TANE SP1 into a folder that already contains an installation. Please create a new folder for this installation of TANE.

2. "Patch Failed: failed to copy source data to: "

Ensure that you inserted Disc 2 and selected the correct file (patch-2.bin) then clicked Next to continue copying data off the install disks. 

3. "Unable to create installation data temp folder" (result -10)

This error is due to a windows permissions issue. The solution is to manually create a new Folder as follows:

  • Open Windows Explorer
  • Navigate to C:\Program Files
  • Click New Folder (provide administrator permission when prompted)
  • Type in the name of the folder as "N3V Games" (i.e your new folder path will look like C:\Program Files\N3V Games)
  • Now run the Installer.exe again
