Installing additional content from the disc.
Posted by N3V Games (Zec) on 01 May 2019 01:19 PM

For Trainz Railroad Simulator 2019, the main installer will install just the 'core' installation of Trainz, with the remaining content being installed separately.

For information on installing Trainz Railroad Simulator 2019 itself, please see Installing the boxed edition of TRS19.

Installing Content from Disk

1. Click File > Install Purchased Items from Disk (Windows Explorer will open)
2. Navigate to your DVD Drive.
3. Select the appropriate Folder in Windows Explorer.
4. Click "Select Folder".
5. The installation process will commence.
6. Once installed, it will show as "Complete".

Congratulations, your content is now installed. You are ready to click Start Trainz and enjoy the new content.

NOTE: Your disk may include additional content you have not yet purchased. You can purchase the items from the store to authorise the additional content.


  • If your version of Trainz does not have the "Install purchased items from disk" option, then you need a more up to date version of Trainz.
    This option is currently available for TRS19 Build 100240 or higher.
  • "Unknown/invalid package format" - Ensure you select the correct folder on your DVD. This process only works for .tzarc files made specifically for installation from disk. It will not work for other file types such as .cdp files.
  • "No items match your search" - Ensure you select the folder and not the ".tzarc" files.
  • "Unable to copy data" - check your harddrive is not full.
  • "Unable to communicate with DRM Server" - You must be online to authorise your installation of this content. Please check your internet connection.
