The Ideal Flight installation program has to check your simulator installation and may appear suspicious to your security software. The security program does this as a precautionary measure to guard against malware. Please choose to continue the Ideal Flight installation as it is perfectly safe to do so.

Compatibility: Ideal Flight is compatible with all versions of Windows, including Windows 10. No need to set Administrator Privileges or compatibility settings. Changing compatibility settings on the installer program can cause it to fail to install or run correctly.

Registration requires an internet connection.

Although unlikely, it is possible another kind of add-on may produce unexpected results within Ideal Flight. Please report back if any problems are encountered.
