Installation problem

Recommended Posts

When I install the GNS, at the end I'm getting a message saying that Prepar3D v1 and v3 are installed in the same folder and that I have to correct the problem before I can proceed. However, there's no v1 on my system. I searched the registry for anything v1 related, as well as my hard drives, but nothing is found.

What can I do to fix this?

This is a current installer just recently downloaded?

Yes, I downloaded the latest version before installing.

Ok, assuming you installed to the default location... go to this folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mindstar\Tools

In that folder is an app called SimSupporter.exe.  Run that and it will have an initial screen that shows all sim version it believes you have installed.  It will show you where the registry reports them being installed as well.  If you see an entry for a sim you don't actually have, there is the source of the issue.

This isnt my job. I have to see when I've got time, besides work, family, friends, etc, to spend on my sim.

I managed to install properly, no more problems there, but when I get into the sim, I do have a working GNS in the VC, only the pop-up GNS has a black screen. The buttons on the pop-up do work for the VC GNS, though, it's only the screen from the pop-up that isnt working.

What aircraft?

Carenado Skymaster v2.1

I've had the GNS installed in the first version of this aircraft and I copied the panel.cfg with working GNS entries to the panel folder of the new version. Could this have possibly caused the problem?

Do me a favor and post the content of your panel.cfg here so I can see what's going on.

Ok, the problem is the entry for the GNS.  We have a web page that explains how to retrofit these units into an aircraft's panel.cfg at http://www.mindstaraviation.com/GNS_Retrofit.html . The window ID value wasn't correct for the GNS popup (the window ID and the final number in the 5th parameter must match for the popup to render). I have corrected your panel.cfg and this should work ok.
