Knowledgebase: Content Store/DLCs
The install button shows 'View Error' after installing, what do I do?
Posted by N3V Games (Zec) on 25 May 2022 06:48 PM


 After installation the 'install' button may change to show 'View Error' if there has been an error during installation. Some of these can be safely ignored, and the installation completed by clicking on 'retry'.


In particular, the error "Failed to download precache data" will not prevent the DLC from working, simply click retry and the installation will be completed. When the content is first used in-game, Trainz will automatically generate the precache data instead.


If you see an error that won't clear after clicking retry then please submit a ticket to the helpdesk using the 'troubleshooter' menu above (you will need to sign in to access this).
