FlightPrep Applications and Windows Vista, 7, 8 Compatibility
Microsoft's latest operating systems introduced a new user interface, new security enchantments,
and a program called User Access Control (UAC) to help protect users from
viruses, mal-ware, spy-ware, and to keep network users from changing or
installing files or programs. As a result some special settings are needed in
order for FlightPrep applications to be fully utilized.
Please follow these steps below to properly setup up Golden Eagle and ChartCase
to run under Windows Vista, 7, or 8.
How to Turn off User Access
Control (UAC): FlightPrep suggests that you turn OFF your User Access Control
(UAC) Feature in Windows Vista, 7, and 8 due to the constant pop ups and memory resources
that the UAC creates and consumes. To Turn off the UAC: Please go into Control
Panel, Select [User Accounts], Select your User Name, One of the options under
your user name is to turn off UAC. Once you have turned off UAC you MUST reboot
your computer for the changes to take effect.
After the software has been installed, right click
on the Desktop shortcut for the FlightPrep software you installed, and select
In the Properties dialog, select Compatibility, Under the Privilege Level section, select Run this
program as administrator. Select OK to confirm your selections and close the
Double click on the Golden Eagle by FlightPrep or ChartCase shortcut to launch the application.
When the application launches, you may be asked to confirm access to your
computer. Select Allow to run the application.
