Install the Add-on

To install, simply download the latest MSFS installer using the button below.

Once downloaded, find (usually your Downloads folder), the installer, "RealSimGear_MSFS_Installer-" and double click it to run the installer.

You will be prompted to allow the installer to run, please choose "Yes".

As part of the install process, if you have previously installed the RealSimGear Firmware Update Utility you will be prompted remove previous versions. Click "OK" to proceed.

You will need to choose "I Agree" to use the Add-on.

Your installation options are automatically selected. If you own a Gen1 GTN see the note below, otherwise click the "Next" button.

*Note to owners of the Gen1 RealSimGear GTN units. You will need to install the PenMount Touch Screen Drivers for your touch screens to function. Gen1 GTN units will have a hardwired cable coming out of the rear of the housing. If you need to install the PenMount Drivers, select the checkbox next to "Touchscreen drivers for Gen1 GTN's".

Choose your install location. By default (recommended) the installer will automatically place the software in the Windows directory show in the image below.

Allow the installer to install the software. During the installation the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable will also install automatically. If you have selected the touchscreen drivers option earlier it will prompt you for the installation of those drivers.

Close the installer, when the installation is finished by clicking the "Finish" button.
