  1. OK, this is the output for the REGEDIT. As you can see, there is no HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Garmin\GTN Trainer I looked at LauncherExePath, and selected it. This loaded a black box showing Navigators - GTN(v6.72) and below it as Display 1 Displays - TXi(v3.30) When I looked about my system, I did find the GtnTrainer in C:\ProgramData\Reality XP\Common. It had an empty update folder, checklists.zip, flightplans.zip, GarminTrainerSetup_3.2.3.0.exe (as well as _2310,2500,2710)
  2. @Jean-Luc OK, I found that HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Garmin\Trainers had seven items. When I manage to get a pic url entered, I will show ya. Default.. BinPath... BootstrapLocation.. DataPath GtiExePath LauncherExePath ShortcutKeyPath However, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Garmin\GTN Trainer, did not exist
  3. @Jean-Luc Hi Jean-Luc, thanks for the reply. No, I did not solve the installation. Looking about my system, I see many references to "RXP", and what looks like many attempts to download and install RXPGTN750. The whole place looks a mess, with several downloads approx. 65,905KB and maybe better to uninstall RXP and any other files I have and start with a clean install. I found the reference in the manual referring to manually "telling" the system where to find the DB. I did find 8 DBs1-8.cab approx. from 1,077,740 to 8,841KB with a Databases.Setup.msi, and GTN.Setup.msi in a RXP folder on my flight sim drive. trying to select causes the system to say, a newer version of Garmin Trainer Databases is already installed, or a newer version of Garmin Trainer is already installed... Is there a clue how to find where these installed databases are? I have just spent the morning reading the MSFS2020 - RXP saga....seems like it is not who you are, but politics. Good luck
  4. I have reinstalled RXP GTN750, and at first, thought everything was well, but I had not actually tried the GTN750. The opening message says databases etc is not found as I reported in an earlier post. Some where, during the installation I must have taken a wrong turn, and many bits scattered about, so the Trainer database is not connecting with the GTN750 in the aircraft, which in turn is not connecting with the world. I can see a 3,458KB application sitting in C:\ProgramData\Reality XP\Common\GtnTrainer The files nav_db2.bin and nav_db2_grm.bin reside in E:\RXP GTN 750 INSTALL PARTS\DATA\DATABASES Maybe it is too complicated to repair and a full uninstall, cleanout and reinstall, with more care taken is the answer. I did not insist it install anywhere and ok with its preference, so not sure what happened and what is the correct responce to its questions?
  5. Rex replied within 24 hours. They said to create or update my REXAXIS account with the WX radar, nominating the company purchased from, order number and serial numbers. When I did this, WX Radar shows up in my account with version 1.1.2020.0415 for download. How good is that. No fuss.
  6. Will do. I have also sent a note to REX, as they seem to have some tie up with the WX radar
  7. I have contacted Milviz site to set up an account so I can contact them. It seems my email is already logged with an account, but alas, I have lost my log in details. I filled in one of their lost login requests a few days ago, they replied saying a new login password to be sent. But no response as yet. I may try and contact them again. When I tried the WX ADVANTAGE RADAR UPDATER TOOL::The response I get is.....Connecting to REX EDGE Data Servers... WX ADVANTAGE RADAR UPDATER::Downloading latest update from servers... WX ADVANTAGE RADAR UPDATER::Error - The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel. I have no idea how to remedy that issue. I need set up some storms in Active Sky for P3Dv4 and try the WX radar and see if it is working, other than the test pattern. If it works, then maybe no great hurry to update?
  8. I have been trying to update the WX radar, but no luck so far. I purchased it in 2018 from FSStore. I have a request to them to send me log in details, as I have lost them. I have the order number and reg codes etc, but no reply as yet. I might try REX, as I recall them in some partnership at the time? OK, Good news....With two reinstalls, and a bit of trial and error, with choosing and moving the various MV_WX.DLL about, I have managed to get the radar working. It seems the dll file has to be located in the gauges folder, and it took 2 reboots for the system to suddenly accept this dll file being plonked in the folder and all seems well. Yet to try the radar in bad weather to see if it indicates.
  9. Hi @arkRather than opening a new subject, this one is identical to above. I am trying to get my Milvez WX Advantage radar working. It used to work great a few years ago. I removed the various aircraft with their settings $%^&* I have several a/c it used to work in. Now, it just appears a static display on the panel. I have the RXP GTN750 installed and working great. When I look in the WX Gauge tool, and see edit, It indicates the radar is installed in the PC12, Cessna 441, Falcon 50 and my Learjet 35A. In each instance, the RXP GTN750 is working well. I am using version 1.1.2019.0514 of the WX Radar. Using the FSW Falcon 50.version 2.0b, with the GTN750 working, and ready for take off, the WX is totally dead, with no buttons or switches working. I checked my Net Framework, and it is 4.8.4084, which exceeds the requirement for WX. I have no MV_WX.dll in P3Dv4.5 game folder, or the gauges folder. Looking at the relevant areas? I see this, which looks ok, says he who really has no idea. [Window Titles] Window00 = CONTROL_PANEL Window01 = AIRCRAFT_OPTIONS Window02 = PAYLOAD_MANAGER Window03 = START_INSTRUCTIONS Window04 = HCP_PANEL Window05 = WX Advantage Radar Window06 =Reality XP GTN Unit 1 (managed) [Window05] ident = 71 visible = 0 sizeable = 1 size_mm = 419,381 position = 0 window_size = 0.343511450381679,0.556719107690809 window_pos = 0,0 gauge00 = MV_WX!WX2D,0,0,419,381,1 gauge01 = MV_WX!WX,64,121,291,205,1 gauge02 = CONTROL_PANEL!clipboard RADAR, 9,81,400,300 [Vcockpit30] Background_color = 0,0,0 size_mm=512,512 visible=0 pixel_size=512,512 texture=$MV_WXM gauge00=MV_WX!WX, 0,0,512,361 gauge01 = CONTROL_PANEL!clipboard RADAR, 0,0,512,361 The MV_WX.DLL is missing from the gauges folder. However, it exists in several folders. For example, C:\WX Advantage Radar\files\P3D45, or an alternative, C:\WX Advantage Radar\modules\P3D45. It seems there is a copy of the dll file for every version of P3D. It would appear, I need to have a copy of the dll file in every instance of the aircraft OR in the gauges folder. I tried by placing a copy of the MV_WX.dll into the gauges folder, rebooted, then reloaded the Falcon 50, but the radar was still comatose. I have uninstalled WX Radar and reinstalled it, with no difference. If I could find a way to update WX Radar, I would give this a go as well.
  10. Thanks David, So, every time I fire up the GTN750, it will always give me the message...Navigation; Basemap; Obstacle; Safe Taxi; Terrain = database not found and charts Not available. I just wondered after the install downloaded some 4.4GB database. I seemed to recall several years ago, I did not get this message, but it did find some things... OK no worries,
  11. After a being seduced by MSFS scenery for many months...I am back. Seems crazy to have P3Dv4.5 with lots of great aircraft and airport sceneries and not use them.....Predominantly, I fly the big airlines or bizjets and once out of the airport surrounds, the sceneries are the same. Anyway..... This caused me to get the RXP GTN750 cranking again in the PC12. I think I updated the RXP GTN to 2.5.29. and the start screen says SW version 6.62.4 and garmine says v3.3.1.0 What do all the other comments mean, and can I remedy them? Navigation; Basemap; Obstacle; Safe Taxi; Terrain = Data base not found? Charts, Not available..I have a Navigraph subscription. How do I get them to coordinate? Phenom300 I recall getting some information from Bert Pieke during 2018 and getting the Phenom 300 equipped with the GTN750. I have very little idea now, how I achieved that when using the mod. I will send Bert a pm, as i still have the copy of the panel.gtn.v6 I think I recall having the RXP GTN 750 in the Flysimware 441, Learjet 35A and Falcon 50? Is there a list of aircraft the RXP GTN750 fits to?
  12. Is what I usually do, is initially trim for the 70knts so that I can clear any objects. When satisfied that no further objects are evident on my proposed course, I will then lower the nose and re-trim for 80 - 85knts. If I am climbing to say 12,000 feet or more, then I will trim for 95knots until reaching my planned altitude. Like in real life flying, trim is your friend. It saves a lot of stress on your flying. I found I needed fairly wide nul zones and a soft profile to make my Logitech Extreme 3D Pro stick work with light aircraft and flyable in MSFS. It is interesting trying the different settings in the MSFS controls, and find the combination that works.
  13. I have been in the habit of rotating at 55-60kts, and as you say, I then nose down a tad to pick up more speed, and climb out at 70kts+. I must need to insert more trim into the rudder. I will experiment with this. I notice handling aircraft in MSFS and P3Dv4.5 is very different with the same controller. P3D, seems a lot more measured, and control surfaces actions and the resultant reactions move in comparison to the controller. In MSFS, the controllers movements seemed to exaggerate the aircraft control surfaces actions, and the 'air' seems to have very little resistance for the lift mechanism to function. For me and my setup, the "mod" for the Kodiak goes a long way to smoothing out the control surfaces actions. Maybe one of the reasons we all have different experiences with the Kodiak, is due to different controllers, and varying control surface trim settings.
  14. I always have a dropped Left wing, resulting in a stall or some very scared pax on the recovery,,,unless I have some pretty aggressive rudder / trim I have that same CH Yoke, since swapped for the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro, which may need to be updated for MSFS?
  15. Has anyone tried the Kodiak March 14 release Update? I am still using maybe the first release, so probably an update will not go amiss.
