I cant' get RC Desk Pilot nor BMI to work.

I have a dedicated PC with a clean copy of WinXP just for FMS...with .Net2.0 SP2 & DirectX9.0c. I get this error with both the RCDP & BMI sims.

I have granted all users full control over the RCDP folders (and subfolders), so it shouldn't be permissions.

Any assistance would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Great simulator, can't be beaten to that price :-) Nice it's possible to change the zoom. Is it possible there is a model of the Multiplex Twinstar II, somewhere?

Apologies if this has already been covered in this long thread, but I was able to get this running on my Mac and my linux machine without much trouble. In both cases, RCDP runs under "wine", a free windows emulator.
The steps, on a mac, were:
1) install wine:
brew install wine
2) download winetricks:
chmod +x winetricks
3) use winetricks to install directx9 and dotnet20:
sh winetricks directx9
sh winetricks dotnet20
4) download RCDP
5) run the RCDP installer:
wine rcdeskpilot_013.exe

And it just worked. Linux is similar...
