I have a system with two monitors and I am trying to

Anybody done this ??
I do have NEMA output set and on screen 8 devices are Condor
But still not working

OK got that one to work.

Now working on my friends. It is one of those 7" mini Chinese Netbooks
LK8000 works BUT the only connections are wifi, usb, or net cable.
I am trying to find a virtual com port emulator that can be installed on CE6.
and I need to know what kind of cable connection I need. coming from USB
at his computer.

Yes, the new version of LK8000 seems full of goodies.

However, after installing LK8000 version 3 on my Mio M400, it no longer will accept flight plan translations from Condor, using condor2nav-gui.exe. The LK version will no longer recognize XCM files, so the display won't be as pretty, unless you can find LKM files to replace them.

Mateuz w/ SourceForge is working on a new version of condor2nav-gui (version 4.0) to adjust to changes made to
LK8000 v3.0.

Most of the scenery here have LKM Dims to match up.
I have also created a lot of the cup files to include the
airports and be able to show them as airports. I can
post them if someone needs them. I am working on all
but it will take a little time. Version 3 works great.

Use an USB/Parallel Adapter Cable and connect it with an Parallel /USB Adapter Cable.

Doesn't cost too much,

I wonder ,, that might work , the problem is that the other PC is a mini 7" netbook
with WinCE 6 flashed. I put LK8000 on the mini, Worth a try
