    AUTO UPDATE -OR- FRESH INSTALL is required (or highly recommended to not have duplicated or orphaned files everywhere) to allow for proper location of 32bit and 64bit files. Auto updating shouldn't have this issue.

    I thought I had a fresh install for 770, but still had that "old UI" issue. Do you have a step by step for fresh install?

    For me, 'fresh' is:
    go to docs/rf2/packages, save those mod files somewhere else.
    control panel, programs, uninstall rfactor 2.
    make sure rfactor 2 folder is gone (the core, in prog files by default)
    delete the rfactor 2 data folder (in docs by default)
    install rf2 lite
    copy the mods back into packages
    setup rf2 as desired.

    This is the same for running dedictated server on 32- or 64-bit? :)

    I assume you didn't remove the old core fully when you uninstalled, or in fact perhaps still have something running invisible to explorer. Check task manager and make sure the directories are actually gone before you install the new build.

    After fresh install the controls menu isn't working for me. As soon as I go to the controls menu the game freezes makes it impossible to reassign the controls. Anyone got a solution for this problem?

    Ok = Fresh install on new partition
    The update is therefore excluded.

    Hi
    Update tab is greyed out on Launcher so cannot update from 770 to 778.

    Your subscription must be expired , you will have to update manually , take note of the manual update steps .

    I'm interested in this line in the change log 'Updates no longer require login.' Does this mean auto updates are available to all after this update or not ?

    EDIT: I would back up your UserData folder as well as Packages in case you have some setups you want to save.

    Try going to the "Launcher" folder and run "Launch rFactor.exe" from there. If that works, then your shortcut is most likely incorrect for some reason.

    I'm still a bit unsure of how to make a fresh install.

    As you can see I have the earlier build installed in documents (I have nothing rF2 related in the "program files" folder):
    View attachment 13662
    Is it correct that I need to delete "core" and "userdata" after I have uninstalled rF2?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "delete the rFactor2 data folder"?

    EDIT:
    Scratch all that. Auto update worked like a charm, as always. :cool:
