GNS530 Not Loading After Reinstall

Recommended Posts

After a bit of a hiatus with my sim, I've recently rebuilt it on Windows 10 with P3D v3.1.  I re-purchased the Mindstar GNS 430/530 package today (because I lost the email with the original invoice number in, sometimes I'm an idiot).  Installation seemed to proceed normally (from the GNS_Setup_1.08.0014.exe installer), and I installed the 530 into my Carenado Cessna Skymaster that I'd had it installed and working in many moons ago -- that was back around P3D v2 (or maybe 2.5).

 

When I start P3D v3.1 (as administrator, per the docs) I see a dialogue box that says:

 

Mindstar Gauge

 

'MPI GAUGE': Failed to load SimConnect Interface DLL:

C:\Mindstar\iSimConnect_P3Dv22.dll

Error Code 126

 

I added

 

SIMCONNECT=NONE

 

to the [GNS] section of the GNS.ini file (in C:\Mindstar, which is where I installed the package), but that didn't seem to do anything.

 

The GNS 530 *does* appear in my Skymaster and seems to work (though I've not given it a thorough checkout yet).

 

Any suggestions?

It's ignorable. Or you could install one of the SimConnect versions that ships with Prepar3D. I'm also not certain the SIMCONNECT= should be NONE... I'll have to check on that.
