    Also, give Xport a try. That is one of the most widely used ones.

    Unfortunately Xport won't work in on a 64 bit OS, period. Win 7 looks at it as a driver and simply won't install it. Xport's site also states that it won't work under 64 bit OS's and has no intention of re-writing it to work under 64 bit OS's. Tied everything I could under Win7 to get it going. No luck. For 32 bit OS's it's rock solid though! That's how I ended up using Franson GPS Gate.

    I thought I seen a thread here discussing xport and curious said that he did start working on a 64bit version awhile ago, and had said that we would continue to work on it.

    What I heard was that Microsoft is requiring developers to buy a license to distribute 64 bit drivers which in most cases is cost prohibitive to those who try to provide "Freebies." More than likely the case for Xport. I wish, at least, Greg would explain the reason why he won't do 64 bit on his site. People would probably leave him alone about it then.

    A few seconds later it says looking for new music files changes numbers while searching/8625
    When complete it says Database Complete total songs 16555

    Why is it showing total songs 16555?
    Shouldn't it be 8623 or the 8625 number.

    Thanks
    Not sure, but that number is close to 2x the number of songs that you say you have. ATM, if its working outside of this issue, then I wouldn't worry about it. When DFXVoice is released, RRMedia is the next plugin I plan on Updating.

    No problem.
    It makes me feel like I have more songs anyway
    I would rather have DFXVoice so I can get rid of XP already.

    He shoots. He SCOOOOOOOOOOORS!!! (in recognition of the upcoming Hockey Season of course) As I stated earlier in the thread my last little niggle was to get Streets & Trips 2011 working in the skin and through a lot of trial and error I've finally done it!

    Everything in the DFX StreetsTrips Skin is working (although I've made some minor changes) and RR keeps S&T embedded properly and doesn't launch another instance when changing screens. It also stays properly embedded if selecting different pre-determined routes from the file menu in S&T.

    So if anyone wants the information to get it working for themselves, PM me. OR if John and Blue just want to incorporate it into the skin period, I will happily supply them with the necessary information.

    Thanks for your help guys!

    The next thing I'm thinking about for it is another menu similar to the DFX Main menu, where you're able to keep various destinations in a folder and select those destinations as Buttons (like setting up your regular menu buttons) that will launch S&T into the StreetsTrips.skin with your selected destination ready to go. That idea's gonna take some thinking on my part. Still not totally familiar with how all of this works, but getting there byte by byte.
