Hello David
I would like to thank you in person . The solution you put
foreward works like a charm . I only get an error message at startup
( in the added startup mode ) from my FSInn - FScopilot ( I select not to
load that program )
and once started again from my IVAO - IvAp user interface .
Do I have to reinstall those two programs ( and perhaps others ) in th
eadded configuration ???
Thanks anyway for your help
Best regards
EddyV
