    Problems with the "New" Road Runner and FreeDrive!

    Hi guys.

    After installing the newest Road Runner version I have got some serious problems with the use of FreeDrive. I have setted up the "new" Road Runner config similar to the old one, but when typing "GPS" there's no FD appearing! I can see that the program starts, but it is placed behind the "GPS" in RR, instead of beeing integrated! That means that I have to minimize RR to use FD! Not very useful..

    Anybody knows how to fix it?

    Check the GPS window title setting -- should be "FreeDrive" .. if that's wrong, you'll not have FD embedded correctly.

    Hmm...Strange! Now it seems to work! I think the problem was that I typed "FreeDrive hidden" in the setup, instead of the normal FreeDrive!
    Perfect!
    But the "GPS window name" is just empty! What is it for?

    When typing a text in "GPS Window name" it doesn't work, but when leaving it empty it works perfect! Why is that? Not that I mind not to have anything typed, I'm just wondering why?

    Maybe the config fills that in for you when you choose freedrive.

    Hmm...Unfortunately it doesn't work anyway! When starting up RR an typing GPS, the program starts, and works perfect! But when leaving GPS for another action, and then trying to go back again, the FreeDrive does not appear! It still runs in the background, but it it not showing in RR!
    What else could the Window name be, than FreeDrive, cause with this typed, it does not work at all!

    Change the line gpsname=FreeDrive.exe in gpsname=FreeDrive and FD will be embedded correctly.
