@dvasi ok I'm sorry for this, in my haste to copy/paste I've given the wrong paths/files:
The whole 'nonvol' folder in 'Program Files (x86)' is not supposed to be touched, nor damaged, and it is in a protected folder.
It's files wouldn't be erased, modified nor deleted without admin password (UAC protection).
The whole 'nonvol' folder in 'Program Data' is supposed to be modified and saves the 'working' copies of the nonvol folder for our GTN simualtion. THIS IS the folder I should have told you to rename to 'nonvol.backup'. My mistake.
So now I'm wondering what do you have on your system. You should have:
C:/Program Files (x86)/Garmin/Trainers/Packages/GTN/data/nonvol/
It contains: CFG_EEPROM, DISP_EEPROM, IO_EEPROM, MEM_EEPROM, sys_nand0
It contains: CFG_EEPROM, DISP_EEPROM, IO_EEPROM, MEM_EEPROM, sys_nand*
(one or more of sys_nand files ending with a letter as documented in the RXP GTN User's Manual - but no sys_nand0 )
Now you shouldn't install nor run any program (X-Plane, the Garmin trainer or other) as admin unless it is an admin tool/app. In effect in doing so, you tell Windows to use a completely different set of paths to registry/harddrive and make programs potentially fail, at the same time you give any plugin the chance to delete your entire hard drive in case of failure/bug...
I'd suggest you uninstall then reinstall the Garmin trainer as a normal user (no right click runs-as), then in case you haven't, probably do the same for X-Plane, and for our product.
