CMP or Content Manager Plus is a standalone program that comes with Trainz 2006. It allows you to connect to the Trainz Download Station and download/install user created content, which is the best part of owning Trainz.

However, CMP, has a mind of its own. There are times when it just doesn’t work. Here are a few things you can do to get it to work. (This is for Trainz 2006 version)

Updating the Trainz Asset Database. Please wait…

  • On launching the CMP, if you see this message and you have been waiting 10-15 minutes, press the ESC key to bypass the updates.
  • If this does not work, go into Task Manager, Process tab and kill the Launcher.exe and ContentManager.exe. and then try again.
  • Now, if this does not work, you need to do something drastic. Go into C:\Program Files\Auran\TRS2006 and delete the assets.tdx file. Sometimes this get corrupted but dont worry, Trainz will rebuild it.
  • In my case, even this did not help so i did the final step, go to the cache folder (C:\Program Files\Auran\TRS2006\Cache) and delete all files/folders in there.

After this when i launched CMP, it took 5 minutes to update and then everything began to work as it should. I downloaded some new routes and will be showcasing them in a subsequent post. And while CMP’s working, i better go and get more fresh content…
