Can anyone help?

Not enough info, John...If you click on the GPS icon what does it do? Try a reinstall over the top. Good Luck, rob

Same problem here, no Icon on Panel, when I check GPS in view, nothing, when I hit Shift+3, nothing.

Only have default aircraft on FS2004 right now.....

Thanks!

No luck Question

IT looks as if it cant find any of the GPS software in the game????
Emailed Microsoft, no response of yet....

No Icons show up on the panels for the GPS, cant get it to show up
even using the Alt Toolbar???

Also I noticed some of the guages dont show for some of the default planes (Ryan, Basic Coptor).... Shocked

Confused Have a look in Fs9 Modules and you should have a gps.DLL and a gps_export.DLL
Then have alook in gauges folder for a Zip style file called Fs9gps(you cannot unzip this)
These are the only files i can find at the moment.

Let us know Confused

I dont have either of the DLL files on my PC?????? Question

Pro Member Chief Captain

Confused Right then, theres nothing wrong with your system specs(nice)so its an install problem

Did you get any error msgs when installing?
Are the disks clean(no finger prints/smudges?(sorry got to ask)
Run a cd drive cleaner disk(just incase)

If you have two CD drives ie cd burner and a dvd drive try it in the other one(some early install probs were caused by the cd drives going to fast.......I wonder if the copy protection has anything to do with this?)

Uummm try some of/all and let us know

After reloading agin, still no luck. Our friends at Microsoft said it could be a defective CD and will ship me another at no charge....

Hopefully that it is.

I greatly Appreciate your Help with this!
