So the Garmin G1000 Simulator/trainer can be successfully loaded and run on Windows 10 based system. It takes less the 5 minutes to install.
The auto installation will not directly run if the disk is just place in the CD drive . It requires the following steps.
Place disk in CD Drive.
Use the "File Explore" option to see the files on the CD.
Click on the "Install Folder" to see the files within.
Now the trick. You need to "Right Click" on the "Cessna NAVIII Trainer vXX.XX" (This install was v13.02)
Now click on "Trouble Shoot Compatibility".
Then choose "Trouble Shoot Program"
Choose "Program ran on earlier versions of Windows But wont run or install now" Choose Windows 8.
Choose "Test the Program"
NOW Look at the lower portion of your screen. You will/should see two(?) or more installation shield warning from Windows 10.
Choose YES for all the shield warnings
You are getting close now!
The Cessna NAVIII program will be requesting that you accept the terms, etc..
Choose.. "I Agree"
Make sure you choose all the components / aircraft you want.. including "Flight Charts" located at the bottom of the list.
You will then get to choose where you want the files installed.. I suggest you just let the program decide.
Go to the installed files location .. If you chose the default file locations .. You will find the Cessna trainer in the "Program Files (x86)".. Open the Cessna folder. Copy and past the "Start_Dual_Screen" file, located at near the bottom of the file listing onto the Desk Top. And you 99% there !!!
When you click on the desktop icon. You will get the MFD and PFD. From there. It depends on your set up. I use two monitors and setup the screens like the aircraft.. PFD on left. MFD on the right. ONE MORE TRICK.
The only place I can find to initially "Resize" the MFD and PFD is in the upper LEFT corner of the two displays.
The program should be closed by "Right Clicking" on the taskbar dual Cessna icons on the bottom of the computer screen, and choosing "Close all windows." This way when the program is restarted the original screen locations will be preserved.
There you go. FYI.. Running Windows 10 Home. G100 Trainer: v13.02 Using CH Products Flight Sim Yoke (USB) and CH Pro Pedals (USB) with full functionality. Fly's great with the above. and via the AP.
There may be slight variation in your installation.. But 99% of the above should be the process.. Enjoy.. Be safe... Al N522CS - 182T
