VasFMC would be ideal, it communicate via WideFS to flightsim (FS9, FSX, X-plane with VasFMC plugin)If you mind to install FS on the laptop then you may use Wideview wich synchronize all running FS in different computers.RV

DaveComing back on this having re-read your post, what do you mean by 'control dials' - do you want to run a third-party software instrument display on your laptop, or do you mean you want to attach some hardware (e.g. Saitek panels) to your laptop? Either way, you need Simconnect and/or WideFS and the above thread links give you the relevent information to enable you to configure file sharing in Wondows XP, and installing Simconnect on your main and laptop computers.
