System requirements

Both products (Electronic flight bag AND SimpleCam) support the following simulator types:

  • Lockheed Martin Prepar3D, Version 3.x (32bit), Version 4.x (64bit)
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX, ServicePack 2 or Acceleration Package or 'Gold Edition'
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX - Steam Edition by Dovetail Games

Further requirements:
  • Microsoft .NET-Framework 4.0 (client profile)
  • Network Interface Card (NIC)
  • Internet: to install either a personal license or a demo license your computer must be connected to the Internet (see also next paragraph "Internet connection").
Internet connection
If you have a demo license installed, the EFB-DataProvider or the SimpleCam camera module needs to connect to the internet at every startup to check how many days are remaining until the end of the trial period. This is only required as long as you have a demo license installed on your computer. This behavior might be strange to you but it's unfortunately required due to security considerations. Once you have installed your personal license you will no longer need an internet connection at every startup.

Electronic Flight Bag

  • Memory: at least 1 GB for a separate DisplayUnit. If all components (including FSX/P3D2) are running on a single computer, then at least 2GB are required
