I have upgraded my computer including an i7-975 CPU and Windows XP Pro 64 bit.
I have reinstalled FSX and begun to reinstall aircraft.
I installed the Dreamfleet Dakota along with full RXP/Garmin provisions with no problem and got no error messages. The final installation text stated that the program installed successfully and was finished.
When I select the DF Dakota in FSX, I get the following error window including the red "X" in a circle:
Reality XP Garmin GNS 430 Ver.126.96.36.199
Can't start the Reality XP Garmin
When I click "OK", FSX shuts down.
I see that Lou has posted a sticky addressing some problems with this unit, but he states: "NB: the reason for the issue is Vista UAC." I do not have Vista, but the Windows XP Pro 64bit OS.
I also see a number of replies regarding a similar problem with "Error 3524". I get "Error 8891".
Previously, I have enjoyed this fine contribution with no problems at all. Is it not compatible with the 64bit system, or does anyone know what the problem is and/or a solution?
Note: The Garmin also did not completely install when I installed the Dreamfleet Baron in FS9 either. However, I can select the aircraft.
Note: I have the RXP: GNS530 and GMA340 installed in a number of other aircraft and they function just fine. The problem is unique to the Dreamfleet birds. No, I have not tried anything on my own relative to installing these separately in the DF birds in question. Only a straightforward installation as per Dreamfleet's instructions. I did get errors during installation with the Baron, none with the Dakota. However, the Baron displays but the Garmin does not power up (FS9). The Dakota shuts down FSX.
