Thread: Installing the GNS 430 trainer in Vista (32-bit)

    Default Installing the GNS 430 trainer in Vista (32-bit)

    Just purchased the lovely Archer III. All went fine with the install, until I got to the end where you install the GNS 430 trainers. Got what seems to be like a common message telling me something couldn't be extracted and access was denied.

    Basically, it seems like I can't install the GNS 430 trainer. Garmin's website says it's not compatible with Windows Vista.

    When I load the plane in FS, everything works except the 430. I get a message with error code 6425.

    I'm looking around for ways to get the 430 trainer installed in Vista. there's a 400/500W series trainer on Garmin's website, but I'm guessing I can't use that one?

    I'm sure this question has been answered before, but I'm having a hard time finding anything on here. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

    Many thanks,

    I should add, I was able to download the installer as a .zip from Garmin's website. I can't run the "setup.exe", though. Will it work if I just manually move the contents to somewhere?
