First off, amazing product. I absolutely love it, however I am having two problems. One is more of an annoyance, the other is major. I will start with the minor one first.
1. I am unable to fly multiple hops. I start the engines once, get my "Clear" and fly to destination A. I shut down, relax, but do not shut down FS because I like to sit and look at the plane in between flights :). When I get back in (virtually with Active Camera) and try to start the engines a second time, I can not turn the key to both in order to restart. I can take the key out and put it back, but not restart. I end up having to restart FS anyway. Anyone else seen this?
2. This one is major. I am getting sustained 100% cpu usage sometimes during flight and sometimes when trying to shutdown FS when using the new 36. When I do a ctrl-alt-del my cpu is pinned at 100% but no applications are running and there are no abnormal processes running. Before anyone even says it, this is not spyware!!! When I try to shut down the cpu I get a system message reagrding WOWEXEC. This is a windows on windows execution error that I have never seen before, nor have I ever seen my cpu at 100% before my first flight last night. I try to do an end task and I get the following error: The system can not end the selected task because GNC400WT is not allowing it to run ok/cancel. I select OK and the get: The request to end the selected 16-bit task has timed out and the win 16 subsytem may be unstable ok/cancel. I click ok and sometimes the cpu will shut down and reboot, other times I have to do a hard reboot. Yes, I am running XP. Anyone have any suggestions, I went to Reality XP forums but only saw one or two posts and I had all the required files mentioned in their forum. This is crippling my machine everytime...
It does appear to be related to the trainer that is getting installed but as the products are sold together, I do not know if support is provided individually.
Any Help would be greatly appreciated,
