And you have Berts mod?  If you don't the GTX 327 transponder will make your sim CTD

I must be missing one. I have all the files here. Maybe I'm missing one.

Is this the GNS that came with the airplane, or the RXP GNS?

Suggest having a good look at the panel.cfg file and comparing the popup window entries with the VC entries.  If in doubt, post your panel.cfg file here for others to have a look.. or send me a PM.

Boy o Boy its been a long time since I did that RV8 for VS , I remember I sent the sounds for that through the effects bus , I bet that worked in 64 bit,wonder if the stearman works too ... the kitty I am sure its sound gauge would need swapping out .

Regarding v4.5 my last out was the MV PC6 with PBR and all sorts of 64 bit dll's running its full on compatible, the doors come off , not normally aspirated but not too fast too , sure goes slow very well with a few degrees of flaps
