Using FMS with Vista and Windows 7

To use the Public Domain software FMS Flight Simulator with Vista and Windows 7, you must download a file and copy it to the folder that FMS is installed in.

Go to this link to download the correct file:

Vista and Windows 7 updated File

You will need a program to exact RAR files (like zipped files)

You can get a freeware copy here:

trial version of Winrar Download

Extract and copy the d3drm.dll file to the FMS folder.

Try restarting FMS; if it still does not work then re-install the latest version of FMS; I suggest getting from this link:

FMS Downloads Page

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Many modern Windows Computer Hardware no longer supports FMS because FMS tries to access hardware option that is not available on most modern computer hardware (serial ports).

Skyartec has released a patch program. You may have to reinstall this patch after any restart of the computer as we don't believe the patch will persist after a restart:
Download the Skyartec FMS COM PORT Patch

We strongly suggest using the free version of Clearview Trial Version - it will work with the Skyartec Flight Simulator Products and the Skyartec Transmitters for Flight Simulation. This version is a trial version that must be upgraded for continued use.
Download Clearview Here

UPDATE: Clearview SE is a Full, No time limit version of Clearview; it ony has 3 models to start with, a car, a plane and a helicopter. You can download additional models for a nominal fee;

Download Clearview SE

Hope that helps,
