I am new to this forum. My name ist Alex an I am from Germany. I would like to apologise for my English in advance.
I think it is more then a year ago that I bought Dreamfleets Piper Dakota. I used this gread add-on under Windows XP (32-bit) in combination with FS9. Everything has worked perfectly and I was proud to have a such complete und incredable aircraft on my hard disk.
Last week I decided to change the operating system from the above mentioned WinXP (32-bit) to Windows 7, 64-bit Version. The main reason for the switch was to work with a more powerful operation system. At this point I have to mention that I use my computer not only for flight simulation but for my academic studies, too.
I've installed the software, including RealityXP package, properly. Then, when I launched FS9 und chose Dreamfleet's Dakota, one first problem came up. As many user have already reported I had the Error message as well as they had. In this forum I read that there were two posibilities to use the Dakota anyway: 1) Buying „Reality XP 430 & 530 WAAS“ or 2) Replacing the GPS units in the Dakota by the standard GPS. I decided to try item no. 2. The result was unsatisfactory. Many gauges disappeared and the standard GPS did not work. I have no more idea how to solve this problem. For me, item no. 1 is out of the question. I will not pay further money for software I have already purchased. Is there another possibility I do not know yet?
I would like to put a concret question to Dreamfleet: Will Dreamfleet solve the „64-bit-Problem“ since more and more user are switching to powerful 64-bit version of Microsoft? I think a suitable patch is not only in users' interest.
Thank you very much for reading. I am looking forward for an established respond.
